We’re thrilled to introduce you to a fabulous Austin wedding planning team today: Mrs. Planner! Ashlee Voda of Mrs. Planner chatted with us about the passion behind this business and trends she loves and and showed off some of her team’s best work.
For the Mrs. Planner team, nothing is more significant when it comes to a planner-bride relationship than trust. “When a client meets with me or a planner from our team, it is most important to get that feeling of ‘It’s like I’ve known you forever’ – and that simply translates to a level of trust,” Ashlee explains. From the looks of it, her brides trust her completely to understand their style and vision.
“We have a chameleon aesthetic when working with our clients in different venue spaces. Our clients lead the vision, and we pride ourselves in being the planner team to complete the process. We work with clients that love a lot of greenery, whether in their design or surrounded by the scenic views of the outdoors. When we begin the process, we always want to know where our clients love to shop for furniture, and from there we can begin the overall look that may fit them and their venue best.”
Who knew furniture shopping could be so meaningful! Take a look at some of Mrs. Planner‘s weddings below.
A Wedding to Remember

“The greatest parts of this wedding were all owed to the creative personalities the bride and groom had. The ceremony start time was chosen by the bride based on numerology for their wedding day. We also got to put an Austin touch on their double grand exits, one during the daylight, and one at night. By putting their unique touch on the day, we were able to make their event like no other. The details often make up the event, but in this case our clients were just the coolest and with their unique vision it made our job a lot more fun.”
More Real Wedding Love

“When we have the opportunity to set up a first look, we do all we can to make it private and perfect for the couple. Joel and Jessica had traveled with their two dogs, so we worked with the great team at Hotel Van Zandt to have Jessica walk in to see Joel first, and as Joel turned around we waited just a moment and then sent in their pups. It made an already special moment, a little more special to them.” Such a neat touch for this sweet couple!
First looks have been trending for a while now, and for good reason! When it comes to other wedding trends Ashlee and the Mrs. Planner team loves, it’s all about working within the client’s budget to get the most bang for their buck. “When working with our clients to make the most of their budget, we have found browsing rentals such as chairs or glassware can make such an impact in the overall look of the space, but doesn’t have to go over budget. Ghost chairs, cane back chairs, colored vintage glass or gold-rimmed… these small details can elevate their look and are details that not only guests will notice, but will also shine in the photos.”
