K+K / Vista West Ranch Wedding / Austin Wedding Photographer / by Melanie Grizzel


Katie and Kieran met in New York City while working as copywriters for an ad agency. Katie is from Houston while Kieran is from New York. To celebrate the great distance they crossed to come together, and in honor of all the worldly places their guests traveled from, they created a lavish destination affair.

Their centerpieces and table numbers were custom designed maps of locales that the couple hold dear to them including Manhattan, Mexico and Austin. Carrying the theme of travel throughout the wedding, K+K added to their guests' escort cards the couples favorite travel destinations. They also included nods to their host city of Austin with charming cowboy boots, BBQ from Gourmet Gals and Guys, and tabasco sauce party favors. Their awesome wedding color combo of turquoise and pink was in every detail including bridesmaid's dresses, flowers from Petal Pushers and a 4 tiered pink gradient wedding cake by Simon Lee Bakery. The whole affair was pulled together perfectly by Aimee Villa of Lizze Belle Event Planning

Kieran mentioned during their engagement session that Katie requests or plays "Boot Scoot Boogie" everywhere they go in New York. hmmm, sounds familiar. With the Matt Wilson Band at the helm there was not a still moment on their dance floor. It was an amazing Sunday evening with the most perfect sunset. A day any couple would proudly relive again and again.
