Just a few short weeks ago, our Waters Point family had the honor of uniting some of our recent newlyweds, Katelyn and Austin! The beautiful couple spent their wedding day getting ready with their loved ones in our luxury cabins, followed by a riverside ceremony and a night filled with dancing, laughter, and love. Thanks to Lauren Garrison Photography, we are excited to show you a piece of this lovely couple’s love story.
Read below to discover the vendors that made Katelyn and Austin’s wedding possible, as well as to learn more about where their love story started.
Bonita Brides made sure all of the ladies looked and felt their best for the ceremony while they enjoyed a relaxing morning in our bridal cabin, Samatanga.
While the wedding party got ready, Merci Bouquet got to work setting out beautiful handpicked florals throughout the reception site.
Danna Family Catering made sure to provide plenty of delicious, sizzling fajitas for all of the guests so they could have the energy to dance all night long!
As the sun went down and family and friends gathered to celebrate, Peerless Events & Tents kept everyone warm beneath one of their tents on a cool, February night.
DJs Stephen and Yeager of Complete Weddings & Events in Austin got the party started with a customized playlist that everybody could get down to.
Just when the day seemed like it couldn’t get any sweeter, a cake by HEB Bakery was the icing on top of the cake for Katelyn and Austin’s wedding day.
After the day was over, Katelyn and Austin headed off to celebrate their honeymoon and begin their lifelong journey together. We asked the couple to share their experience with us, and here is what they said:
1. How did the two of you meet?
“Austin and I have an interesting love story, that both my MOH and Austin’s Best Man referenced in their toasts on the big night! We initially met online, became friends and both dated other people for about a year. In April of 2016 Austin and I decided it would be a good idea to become roommates and move into a house together. Long story short- That “roommate” title quickly developed and although we don’t have an official “first date” we mark our dating anniversary sometime in July 2016.”
2. What made you decide on The Waters Point for your venue?
“We toured several venues and could have pictured our wedding at a few, but as soon as we walked onto The Waters Point property we felt something different. When Natalie showed us the ceremony site on the water, we were sold. We also loved all the idea of having all our family and wedding party onsite in the cabins.”
3. What was the most memorable moment of your wedding?
“My most memorable moments were seeing my nieces so excited to be flower girls, walking down the aisle to Austin and of course, our dogs’ involvement in the wedding!”
4. How did you spend your honeymoon?
“We traveled to Paris, Edinburgh, and Dublin. It was a blast and we hope to visit again one day!”
