SAM + AJ ~ THE DRISKILL

THEIR STORY: Sam + AJ met while working at Starbucks. Hello, love at first latte. We used their fun story as inspiration all throughout their wedding design. From fun stir sticks to the surprise “Frappucino” cupcakes that were served to guests at the end of the evening, it was love “brewed to perfection.”

We had a great time planning with all of the Ruocco family, especially MOB Antoinette, who has impeccable taste, is fun beyond words and taught us all about East Coast cocktail hours. Ruoccos — we are waiting with eager anticipation for the next Ruocco wedding!

OUR INSPIRATION: Sam + AJ’s sweet Starbucks story. Golds, taupe + ivories. Sparkles + splashes of Chevron. Lush textural flowers. Classic elegance.

FAVORITE DETAILS OF THE DAY: Hands down, we loved the surprise Starbucks cupcakes that our good buddy Olga helped us bring to life! The Waterford crystal ice vase we used as the centerpiece on the Mezzanine for cocktail hour. GORGEOUS gold foil invites + beautiful gold calligraphy everywhere. The super fun gold + Chevron dance party in the Driskill ballroom.

The long wedding tables featured neutral gold linens, white and blush flowers and gold chargers with gold chiavaris at The Driskill Hotel. Weddings at The Driskill Hotel in Austin are very elegant and sophisticated. Blind Date Band in Austin is a great Austin wedding band. Brock and Co. Events designed a lounge with Chevron sequin linens and white lounge furniture. Flip flops for wedding dance floors and mini milkshakes for midnight snacks are fun accents for weddings. French fries in shot glasses with ketchup are a good wedding midnight snack. Cupcakes made to look like Starbucks were created by Polkadots Bakery in Austin for a wedding at the Driskill Hotel.
