Amanda + Drew at One World Theatre
Amanda has such a heart. She is sentimental in all the right ways. She cares deeply for her family and friends. And she and Drew are very much in love. After a whirlwind, long distance romance (Amanda in Austin and Drew in China), Amanda moved to China to plan their wedding from afar. Over many a late night email and several in-person planning meetings, we put together an event that captured everything they love.
Amanda had envisioned an elegant, fun party, so we worked with Verbena to fill long tables with hundreds of twinkling candles and big puffy white hydrangea, her favorite bloom. As a nod to Amanda + Drew’s love for travel, Word of Mouth created food stations filled with favorites from home + afar: Green chili-cheddar grits, spring rolls, empanadas, pie and Blue Bell ice cream. Southern Fried Paper designed post cards that doubled as table numbers–each one was named after a place Amanda + Drew had lived together or would visit on their honeymoon. Memphis Train Revue kept everyone dancing until the very end of the night, and then Amanda+ Drew departed for Antarctica (!) amid cheers and sparklers.
Congratulations, Amanda and Drew! I was so honored to be a part of your big day.
