What brought you to Austin/Driftwood?  I went to UT and landed a job at Decorum Home + Design through a sorority sister that did their PR. The owners decided to open a wedding venue and brought me on as Events Director.

What made you decide to go into the field you are in?  I fell into it, honestly. It has turned out to be a pretty great fit, though. I can use my design background and personal skills. I’m an extrovert, so sales is something I naturally eased into. Also, I am at that stage in life that has me totally immersed in weddings. When I am not working a wedding, I am attending one.

What do you love most about what you do?   I get to work at parties for people in love in the prettiest place in Texas.

Can you describe your facility’s style? Chic, mid century modern, transitional. It’s a historic building in the Texas Hill Country with a contemporary design aesthetic. We are unique in that we are not your kitschy Hill Country wedding venue.. We like to keep it neutral, so our clients can bring in their own personal colors and style. Every bride wants to be different and we give them a chance to show off their “flare” in this DIY/Pinterest age.

What are your specialties?  We are a boutique venue, so it’s not your typical hotel or events center. We are flexible and have superb customer service. When couples rent our venue, they make it their home for the day. They get ready in our great bridal suite and grooms parlor, make their way down to the ceremony site to marry, and finally party the night away in our reception room, lounge, and tented deck. It’s a one stop shop in a comfortable, yet classy setting. Also, I was certified by NECI (totally worth it, btw) as a Professional Wedding Consultant. That with my design background makes me perfectly suited to help couples execute a stylish and organized wedding. I am a STICKLER for punctuality and I can “herd cats” like no other.

Any funny stories from your time in the wedding industry? None that I can say on this. Find me at an event and I’ll tell you personally ;)

Is there anything else you would like the NEAWP members to know about you or Stonehouse Villa? We aren’t “full service” so we need outside vendors to make our weddings amazing. We love giving tours and opening our doors to anyone that wants to check out the space!
