Wedding Coordinators CAN Save You Money

With clients on a tight budget, sometimes it’s our responsibility as the wedding coordinator to step outside the box to help the couple save money, especially when it comes to venue selection. When Kelly and Brooks came to Disch Events and told us they wanted their guests to really understand what Austin is all about, and have their wedding be a true reflection of their lives here, Crissalane and Johnny knew they were going to have a lot of fun bringing this bride and groom’s inspiration to life.

Rainey Street is a new area of Austin that is quickly growing with unique bars and restaurants, the first being Lustre Pearl Bar. Johnny came up with idea of transforming Lustre Pearl into a wedding venue for Brooks and Kelly. Because Lustre Pearl has never held a wedding, we truly had to build the event from the ground up. Negotiating a contract with the promise of having them published, giving them the photos to help them begin marketing Lustre Pearl as a wedding venue had a lot of buying power.

Because the wedding was held in December, Lustre Pearl was already planning to tent the backyard, which saved the bride and groom a ton on not having to tent the area. They also had their own heaters and adorable picnic tables so the venue was the perfect location for this 200 person wedding. We (Disch Events) used our uplighting to bring in a pop of purple, and we brought in Ilios to hang extra festoon lights.

To help the out of towners understand what Austin is all about, we brought in Roppolo’s Pizza Trailer, and owner Marc Roppolo even stuck around to serve the bride and groom their first piece of pizza since Brooks asked Kelly to be his girlfriend at the Roppolos pizza trailer a fews years ago. We also brought in Austin’s Elite Staffing to serve made to order Torchy’s Taco’s, a huge hit with the guests. To end the night, guests enjoyed hot Tiff’s Treats cookies, a true Austin favorite.

The Matchmaker band kept these guests on their feet until the end of the night, and Kelly & Brooks could not have been more happy with their truly Austin wedding.
