To Austin, Texas

A very quick trip to Austin over the weekend for The Cream… It’s such an awesome city, you guys. I was feeling a little gutted that we didn’t have more time to wander the streets, eating and shopping, and taking it in. I cannot wait to go back for a family vacation. It seems like such a great family city.

I ended up with only photos of the Hotel San Jose (which was spectacularly perfect) and setting up at Mercury Hall (which is a super charming venue, btw). Here they are, because it’s what I did last weekend.

The city is so full of textures and colors and hand-painted signs. It’s such a genuine place, it seems. We loved it.

And the event was gorgeous, as always. Those poppies are from Liz of the Nouveau Romantics. They were insane, as were all of her flowers. And she’s such a nice person. Hi Liz! So fun chatting with you.

    This is so cool – when we got married it was in the afternoon at Mercury Hall underneath those beautiful oaks and then stayed at Hotel San Jose. These pictures are bringing back such great memories! All our friends met up with us that night and we hung out on the patio and had drinks until late, so fun! You’ll definitely have to hop back to Austin, so many cool things to do (Alamo Drafthouse! Flagship Whole Foods!) and great food to eat!

    Heyyyyyyyyy!

    I can safely say that I’m sure there is a slew of readers who’d love the chance to meet you one day as well. So fantastic to get to chat with you, Jillian, and Amanda.

    We look forward to your return! Bring an empty stomach. You’ll need it.

    (also: your pics are currently trumping all others for the poppies — what lens do you have?)

    it’s funny how ubiquitious these places are in austin. my daughter was married at mercury hall, we stayed at san jose hotel & they honeymooned one night at san cecilia hotel. and, it was beautiful AND i would do it all again!

    Lovely, lovely photos. It’s always so fun to read what visitors have to say about our city. Living here is truly a gift. Great to chat with you and the other 100 LC ladies!
