The Cream Event


This is going to be the most photo-heavy post I’ve ever written, and for good reason!  I’ve been looking forward to The Cream Event since August, and now that the event has come and gone, I can honestly say that I have never been more in awe of the amazing talent in the wedding industry, both here in Austin, and in all the places that vendors traveled from to participate. I am both humbled and incredibly thrilled to be a tiny part of an industry that I love so much! I will let the pictures do the talking for the most part, but I’m also sharing my top five moments at the end of this post.

Loot Vintage Rentals brought in all of the gorgeous furniture.

Goody bags all in a row!

The courtyard was full of lounge areas for people to sit and listen to the live bluegrass band, drink cocktails, and socialize.

The Lost Pines were so much fun to listen to while walking around and checking out the space.

Left, stunning arch by The Byrd Collective. Right, this photographer display was at the center of the hall–love The Nichols!

100 Layer Cake table! I was so thrilled that I got the opportunity to meet Amanda!

More pretty spots to sit–think I can rent that couch forever? :)

The Byrd Collective table was too beautiful for words.

The Nouveau Romantics did a ton of the florals for the event, and every arrangement was incredible!

The Creative Parasol girls were so sweet, and their products are amazing.

BHLDN fashion show time! Camille Styles MC’ed the unveiling of the new spring collection, in stores next week. I loved the dramatic backs…

The tea lengths… (and cute shoes!)

The “something blues”…

The adorable headpieces…

The flowy skirts…

And the prettiest cover ups I have ever seen!

This gorgeous veil was the perfect grande finale.

Back at home! I remembered to take a picture of my outfit, including my sparkly wedges! Forgive the self-portrait. :P

The Byrd Collective had a “make your own bouquet” station, which was so much fun! What I created is now sitting on my desk.

All the business cards and information I collected!

Goody bag loot!

My business cards, for those of you who wanted a picture :)

My top five moments of The Cream Event:
-Finally getting to meet Camille Styles! She’s my favorite Austin blogger, and she was so sweet.
– Amanda from 100 Layer Cake asking for my card and saying she would check out Something Pretty! So flattering to hear from one of my biggest inspirations.
– Admiring all of the gorgeousness from BHLDN, both at the fashion show and in their pop-up shop.
– Getting to see the work of floral stylists like the Nouveau Romantics and the Byrd Collective in person, after months of following them online. Pictures truly do not do their work justice!
– Tasting the cutest desserts from Bake Sale Austin and Tiny Pies. Yum!

It was truly an experience to remember, and I’m so thankful to all the incredible vendors that made it possible!
