Make Your Austin Wedding Unique and Delicious with Tasty Local Food Trucks

If there is something that everyone who has ever visited Texas’ capital city can agree on it is that the food here is some of the best in the country, and possibly even the world -- which is one of the MANY reasons to get married in Austin!

One of the things that makes the food landscape here so amazing is not the number of fancy establishments, but the abundance of food trucks that serve up fare from BBQ to the far east. (According to Austin Monthly, over 1,000 food truck permits were issued in Austin in 2017!)

It is no wonder that this is how quite a few of our couples over the years have chosen to treat their wedding guests to an authentic taste of amazing local Austin, TX flavor at their weddings.

Delight in “Damn Good” Tacos

Known for tacos as unique as they are tasty, Torchy’s is an iconic fixture in the Austin food scene. When the “Damn Good” taco purveyor’s decked-out black, red and white truck rolled up  to Garden Grove Austin last year, it served everyone three favorites: The Beef Fajita, Green Chili Pork, and Trailer Park. (Yes, fried chicken on a taco is every bit as delicious as it sounds!)  

Quench Your Thirst with Craft Beer on Wheels

Torchy’s also happens to be known for its appropriately-named Diablo sauce, but fortunately, North by Northwest’s massive 74 foot Bluebird-style Beerliner was there to extinguish any flames and keep everyone hydrated!

Fall in Love with Sweet & Savory Waffles

Whether you have a massive sweet tooth or cannot get enough of savory flavors, Waffle Love ATX truly is “love at first bite!” Their authentic Belgian Liege waffle creations include classic pairings like Nutella & bananas and chicken & waffles — plus delightfully different options like grilled cheese and tomato basil soup! (Our favorite!) Their lovely truck, which is reminiscent of one of downtown Austin’s many murals, also makes the perfect backdrop for photos!

Fall Florals in Texas Hill Country

We’ve been so inspired by all the beautiful fall flowers and design this season, and it has us reminiscing about a couple of our favorites from weddings of falls weddings past.

We were so smitten with the understated elegance of Sarah and Jonathan’s wedding. Copper & Birch and Pink Parasol DC worked with a neutral pallet of white and green, paired with accents of steel blue.

Leticia and Vu’s floral palette was full of rich colors and dynamic textures from Sweatpeas Floral. Flowing garlands provided an understated elegance to the head tables and gold votives and vessels for the guests. This was truly a breathtaking fall Texas wedding.

Nada & Stephen's Spring Destination Wedding

A beautiful spring morning in Texas Hill Country, gave way to a perfect evening for this sweet couple. Family and friends traveled to Austin, Texas from around the world to celebrate Nada and Steven’s wedding. The bride’s parents even had a traditional Lebanese band surprise the couple for a few dances! It was so much fun to watch! Fine Feather Florals did such an elegant job. The evening concluded with a romantic sparkler send-off and a happily ever after for these two love birds.

Amazing Wedding Cakes and Sweets Displays

We hosted an incredible cake display this weekend, and wanted to share some of the other spectacular cakes and sweets displays from past events. Here are just a few of our favorites.

For their spring wedding, Alex and James chose a lovely two-tier cake from Catering With A Twist. The rich white buttercream frosting was topped with white, yellow and soft pink roses from Lee Warth. The couple also brought in a variety of fun doughnuts from VooDoo Doughnut, an Austin, Texas favorite, and the perfect compliment to their classic cake! The bride even had one specially made to celebrate her father’s birthday.

There was nothing “traditional” about Virginia & Chris’ modern wedding. From her tropical decor to her jaw-dropping illusion wedding gown; Virginia put a truly unique twist on every detail. Her cake was no exception! From the hand painted effect on the front, to the sugar geode accents…. this masterpiece from 2 Tarts Bakery was truly amazing.

This trio of cakes and cream puffs, from Simply Delicious Custom Cakes was a huge hit at our Summer Engagement Event in 2017, and we are still quite smitten. Not only were they absolutely delicious but they added a touch of whimsey to the event and provided guests with a variety of ways to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Call us old fashioned, but there is just something so lovely about receiving a hand-addressed letter in the mail — especially when it’s to announce the upcoming union of two souls in love.

This elegant, Texas-inspired set conjures visions of fields full of springtime florals in the Lone Star State, but it’s the envelope adorned with eclectic vintage stamps that steals the show.

This gorgeous gold and blue set was a collaborative effort between the groom and the couple’s wedding planners. The watercolor background and cascading stars embossed in gold, paired with a custom monogram is an exquisite example of understated opulence.

Virginia & Chris' Modern Texas Hill Country Wedding

From Virginia's illusion gown to their modern ceremony in the round, this wedding was exceptional in every way. We were blown away by the attention to detail from Silverthistle Weddings and Margot Blair. The floral accents combined with a modern copper arch from Bee Lavish were a match made in modern wedding heaven. Guests dined on tasty treats from Heavenly Gourmet, 2 Tarts Bakery and Drink Slingers, and then danced the night away with some funky beats by DJ Nixx.
