Six Reasons Travel Agents Are Back

People LOVE our personal touch and having a real person to answer their questions regarding their vacations, honeymoons, and destination weddings.

After 20 years of OTAs, customers are again seeing the value a human travel agent brings.

Day-of Wedding Coordination Is a Myth

This happens all too often! There is NO such thing as "Day of" coordination.

A word to brides who want a "day-of" coordinator: Be careful, you may get what you pay for. I've actually received calls from brides who thought I was too expensive. They say, "I should have listened." By then, it's too late.

Better than a "traditional" honeymoon registry!

Did you know that by using a Travel Agent, you can have a "honeymoon registry" without ANY extra fees? Unlike the popular honeymoon registries, your guests can gift money toward your honeymoon securely without the percentage of each gift being kept as a fee. #honeymoon #registry #realweddings #giftwasmeantforyou

Spending the morning visiting Georgetown's newest venue, Long Road Ranch, was awesome! Soaking up the stunning views of rolling hills, peaceful rivers and ponds, and amazing trees for miles around was even better. Having an excuse to wear my boots for work... priceless! ;) #longroadranch

Matt & Monica

Happy Monday! Turn your sound up for this one because this Mariachi wedding parade through Austin will get you up and dancing! Cameo appearance by their pups on parade too! Their guests were in for a night full of treats with food trucks from Micklethwait Craft Meats and East Side King serving up dinner and desserts from Tiny Pies. But the biggest surprise came later that night when our 7/11 wedding guests were later surprised with none other than 7-11 slurpees for a late night treat!

#TBT to earlier this week! We love getting to spend time with our couples at menu tastings. It gives us a chance to get to know them and see the way they interact and make decisions together...and we get to eat food like this! The Driskill chefs did an amazing job even with the special requests for Korean appetizer options. Nom nom.

That one time that Dawn with Your Very Own Fairy Godmother Weddings & Events was completely and totally obsessed with chalk... and we decided to build a 12' by 16' ceremony wall that didn't fit in our studio at the time, so Shea had to draw sideways.... #goodtimes #stemsevents #gobigorgohome

Yesterday we were completely spoiled by Dana Andre and the AT&T Conference Center staff for their Chefs Table 4 course lunch and a wine pairing! Highly recommend booking your next event here for the food alone! Such great combinations of fresh and unique flavors!

Had a lovely luncheon today at Austin's newest modern venue, The Prospect House. Looking forward to working here!
