Jenna & Nick
Festival-Inspired Wedding

Jenna & Nick are two people that radiate joy and happiness. They are goofy, fun-loving and always quick to laughter and have surrounded themselves with like-minded people. Jenna & Nick’s favorite past-time is going to music festivals together, and they make many trips year-round to catch the next great concert. These audiophiles wanted their wedding to embody so many of the wonderful experiences they’ve had at their favorite music festivals with a weekend destination wedding in Austin, TX with a mix of a summer camp/Coachella vibe with the boho, southwestern flair of Austin.

Their friends and family arrived in Austin from the Chicago area to be greeted by the wonderful Retreat at Barton Springs with a Mexican Fiesta rehearsal dinner, complete with a mariachi band and beer burro.

Saturday morning before the wedding, the entire group heading to the water to swim and kayak and enjoy each other’s company before the wedding that evening! The colors were bright, festive and explosive thanks to Petals, Ink. and Jenna’s gorgeous Sarah Seven dress effortlessly flowed in the Austin wind. Their ceremony had festival style seating, in the Retreat’s amphitheater area; Jenna & Nick had family members read important passages to their relationship during the ceremony and they read their vows to each other under one of Austin’s live oaks. The day was relaxed, effortless and fun – just what they wanted. Their first dance started as the sun went down, and their guests surrounded them on the dance floor with sparklers and the moment was truly magical. When Nick proposed to Jenna, they had a flash mob (made up of 50+ friends and family) surprise her, singing Seal’s Kiss From a Rose which was the first song to get everyone to the dance floor – with everyone surrounding them and belting out the song that started the wedding adventure. They spent the night dancing away, with custom Jenna & Nick temporary tats, to all the songs that have shaped their relationship.
