Marfa weddings are for lovers
If there’s one thing Covid taught us, it’s the importance of creative problem solving as wedding planners. So when the pandemic hit and we had to postpone what was supposed to be Kathryn and Carleton’s West Texas wedding in the one-and-only Marfa—we said, “What else ya got, Covid?” and brought the Marfa wedding vibes right to their backyard. (If you don’t know, Marfa is a straight hidden GEM of a town that makes up for what it lacks in cell-phone service with epic views, wild landscapes, a surprising modern-art scene, and the most charming slow-pace vibes. Seriously—go Google it, then reach out and we’ll start planning your Marfa wedding stat. It’s the best setting ever for an exciting guest experience.) For this intimate backyard affair, design ended up being a scaled-back—but just as impactful—version of what we had in the pre-Covid plans for the couple’s initial Marfa wedding. We wanted to create a modern desert oasis chock-full of amber hues and envy-worthy textures. Bird Bird Biscuit provided thee most delicious chicken sandwiches for the intimate guestlist, Open Road Florals absolutely killed it with a gorgeous textural floral install, and Bee Lavish brought the fire as far as rentals go. All in all, these dreamy desert-inspired backyard nuptials absolutely gave us our Marfa-wedding fix….for the month at least.

Client Love

"She is unbelievably talented, smart, and probably could be a therapist by now! Do yourself a favor and hire this gal while you can — she is going places."

Where to begin!? Investing in Alex was the best decision we ever made. She seriously knows her stuff. I learned so much just from asking her a million questions! She is so professional and so talented and so much FUN to work with! She respected our budget and worked hard to find amazing vendors that were perfect for our personality. She was able to zero-in on what made us unique and translate that into a wedding. It was amazing to watch her work! When COVID-19 hit, our plans fell to pieces. She took the pieces and turned them into art. We had to cancel our Marfa wedding and decided to get married in Austin later in the year. Alex was there every step of the way and helped us close out contracts and plan a second wedding. She was so professional. Even when the pandemic was at its worst, she was quick to respond and up-to-date on the latest regulations for weddings. Throughout the process, I trusted her completely with all of the logistics and she did NOT disappoint. Ultimately, we decided to scrap the second wedding because COVID was still very much an issue. I was so afraid to tell Alex because we had worked so hard and for so long on my dream wedding. She completely understood and suggested we have a private elopement. Within two weeks, in the middle of a pandemic, Alex brought to life the most amazing elopement for my husband and me. it was unbelievable, I am still on cloud nine. I don’t know how she does it. She is unbelievably talented, smart, and probably could be a therapist by now! Do yourself a favor and hire this gal while you can — she is going places.
