Charming DIY Austin Wedding

Real Weddings

In light of last week’s Cream Event at the beautiful Mercury Hall, I was thrilled when Nessa of Nessa K Photography gave me the go ahead to show you this wedding, which took place at the same venue! It’s so much fun to see a different interpretation of the same space, and I love how this bride and groom filled it with sweet DIY details and just the right amount of Austin flair.

 {Vendors: Photography: Nessa K Photography| Venue: Mercury Hall| Pies and cocktail food: Feast Gourmand| Flowers: Austin Flower Company, arranged by mother of the bride| Dress: custom made by Shirin Askari| Groom’s attire: J. Crew| Boutonniere and hairpin: EmersonMade| Paper poms: Pom Love| Getting ready hotel: Hotel San Jose| First look hotel: Hotel Saint Cecelia}

I can’t get enough of this adorable pie bar! Not to mention all that bunting, which I’m quite partial to. :) What’s your favorite detail?
