In the heart of Downtown Austin, Paige and Clayton said “I Do” with their closest loved ones on the rooftop of Brazos Hall. It could only be expected that this couple was meant to be. After meeting on Bumble and chatting for a few weeks, Paige and Clayton’s first date lasted 14 hours. You read that right! From that date forward, their love for each other only grew stronger.
According to Paige, when Clayton proposed, she was definitely suspicious. Her friends suggested they all get their nails done, and the next morning Clayton put on a nice shirt. However, Paige suspected that he would propose at the oh-so-famous Austin Trail of Lights. Instead, Clayton took advantage of the stunning Austin skyline and popped the question on the boardwalk. It was only fitting that the pair get hitched in the same city.
Brazos Hall fit their needs perfectly! The venue has the rooftop feel they wanted, and an industrial reception space, too. For their ceremony, Paige chose a unique hexagonal shaped arch. Billowing Blooms decorated the piece with greenery, framing the city behind. Watching Paige make her way to Clayton with Austin behind them was beautiful. Their ceremony could not have been more stunning! Paige said her favorite decor detail of the day was the ceremony arch covered in different types of greenery.
During dinner service, Rebekah Paul Photography and Juan Jose Photo snuck the couple off to a nearby rooftop. They burst open some smoke bombs and got some amazing shots with the skyline. This private moment was one of Paige’s favorites from the day! She said “it was so special in that moment because we were so freshly married and to be able to spend a special moment together just the two of us was so nice.”
Note to all future couples: Work with your planner to schedule in a little alone time. This could be anytime from right before your reception begins, or at the very end of the night. A little break from the hustle and bustle can really help cement the exciting fact that you two are now MARRIED!
After cocktail hour on Brazos Hall rooftop, guests made their way downstairs for the reception. Have you ever seen a dance floor filled with every guest – on the first song of the night? Well, we did! Their Game of Thrones themed grand entrance should have clued us into the fact that the night was just getting started! Paige and Clayton’s guests were so eager to dance the night away, everyone was up from their seats the second the dance floor opened. The dancing went all night long! Luckily, Paige knew her guests would keep the party going and worked with us to ensure they had enough time. From the donut wall, to tear jerking speeches and the sweetest dances, their reception was wonderful from beginning to end.

“You NEED a wedding day coordinator. I would have lost my head without Bianca. She also helped me the month before to keep everything in order and make sure everyone knew what they were supposed to do on the day of! I just loved that every time Bianca had a question and I said “oh crap I forgot about that” she’d be like “don’t worry I’ll take care of it!” And it was just that willingness to help out, because she knew way more about all this than me! My mom and I kept saying over and over again the month before the wedding we wouldn’t know what to do without her.” -Paige, Bride
