Classic Hotel Wedding; The Driskill, Austin Texas

Classic Hotel Weddings

Austin is home to one of the most historical hotels in Texas, The Driskill.  It has classic details and a lot of history in every space.

Located in the heart of Austin’s entertainment district, which makes it a favorite ceremony and reception space for Texas brides.

We loved creating this classic and elegant hotel weddings.

A Timeless and Elegant Ceremony.

Our fall bride chose the iconic D on the Mezzanine to host her wedding ceremony.  Lush, floor to ceiling draping created a romantic backdrop for our popular “circle” arbor.  It was covered in native Southern smilax and a few neutral blooms, to bring the outdoors inside.  The look was completed with one of our favorites, the gold chameleon chairs for the guests to view the ceremony.


The Reception.

After the ceremony, guests moved into the ballroom for cocktail hour.  The decor was kept minimal, but functional.  Being University of Texas alumni, the cocktail hour featured orange blooms – hook ’em!  While the guests were enjoying drinks and appetizers, our team sprung into action to relocate the arbor- not an easy fete. The draping was removed and the chairs found new homes at the guest tables for dinner service. We created a candlelit dinner reception, there were round tables for the guests and a long table for the wedding party.  A collection of pillar candles with clusters of lush greenery filled out the large 72-inch dinner tables.

The cakes.

Cakes are always one of our favorite details of a wedding.  The bride’s cake was an adorable tiered cake with a few fresh flowers, but the circle arbor framed it beautifully! And then there was the groom’s cake, a replica of the iconic University of Texas tower.

The Vendors.

All weddings, regardless of size or location require a professional team.  Driskill’s team has always been one of our favorite groups.  The other vendors were Barbara’s Brides for the planning and Pam Hults for the photography.

Another one of our favorites!
