Great Wedding Professionals

Well we haven’t posted in awhile, so we wanted to update everyone on what we’ve been up to (We plan to start blogging on a regular basis…) We’ve been doing a lot of networking with other wedding professionals and venues. Despite being a competitive industry, everyone we’ve met has been extremely friendly and open. We wanted to mention a few we’ve had a chance to talk to.

Amy Mader of Platinum Weddings was great to talk to. She gave us more information than we ever expected and we have since joined the NEAWP (Nuptial Essentials Association of Wedding Professionals), a great organization that Amy started!

Shauna Jankowiak of Perfectly Planned Weddings & Events is a top notch wedding coordinator. We had a great meeting that at one point digressed into a conversation on Henry VIII – lots of fun! We are proud to be listed as a partner on her site.

McMurtrie Farms in Pflugerville is an organic farm that has transitioned to a beautiful venue for weddings and events. This 5 acre oasis is along Gilleland Creek with a beautiful green field and is complete with multiple locations for ceremonies to accommodate a wedding of any size. As photographers – we can see its a beautiful place for photography.

Dan and Kristen Stacy of Royal Fig Catering are a husband and wife team who pride themselves on using fresh, seasonal ingredients from organic farms throughout central Texas. Dan, the Executive Chef, has over 10 years fine dining experience from New York to Houston, and now Austin. Kristen is an experience event planner dedicated to taking care of her clients. They are a great duo for any wedding. We will be sharing office space with them, and several other wedding professionals soon.

Premiere Party Central is a locally owned, family operated business specializing in tenting, staging, lighting and event decor such as tables, chairs, linens, and food service.  They were previously known as Austin Party Central, however in the summer of 2009, Austin Party Central purchased Premiere Tents and Events – leading to the name change:  Premiere Party Central!  With the combination of these two great Austin based companies, a bride can find anything she would need to design a beautiful wedding.  They have North Austin and South Austin locations.
