Getting married in the Austin area? Well, you have a wide selection of vendors to choose from when planning your wedding. From photographers, caterers, flowers, dresses, planners, and of course, videographers, Austin has some of the finest wedding vendors in the country! Interviewing and hiring all the different types of vendors needed to put on your dream wedding can be a daunting task, but a fun one none-the-less. Having worked with several of the top wedding vendors in the Austin area, here are some of our recommendations.
For photography, which is a lot of times one of the first things on a newly engaged couples mind, Forever photography studio based in Austin is one the best around. They have a really unique blend of an artistic, yet natural style that is second to none. While our other favorite photographer is not an Austin resident, if you are having a Dallas wedding you should take a look at Paige Ogilvie’s website, www.plophotography.squarespace.com. She is one of the hot up-and-comers in the DFW area.
For venues, we have already profiled several in previous articles. A lot of different factors are involved in choosing the venue. How large is your wedding, do you want the wedding and reception at one location, is it an outdoor or indoor wedding? Depending on your preferences and needs, Villa Antonia, Vintage Villas, Red Corral Ranch, Old Glory Ranch, and The Driskill are some of our favorite Austin wedding venues. All of them are great and it would be hard to make a bad choice from that list.
If you are looking to hire someone to gather up the wealth of information and help you make all these decisions, then you should look into hiring a wedding planner. One of our favorites is Cortney Zieky of BZ events. She is the most detailed and organized planner we have worked with and she will make sure that your big day is stress-free!
After the wedding, you are probably going to want to relax for a week or two at some private island far, far away from the chaos that was the planning of the wedding. For that you should call Randy Otts of 2 Getaway Travel, http://www.2getawaytravel.com Randy is one of the best in the business and will help you find your perfect honeymoon spot and save you a few bucks in the process!
