The couple wanted their wedding to be as meaningful as possible, so they had friends provide many of the wedding services and kept the event to just 30 guests.
Rachel & Ted: Garden Party Wedding with Soft Colors
Wedding: October 21, 2017
Ceremony & reception: The Allan House
Honeymoon: St. Lucia
Ted Moran had just moved from New York to Austin for work when he met co-worker Rachel Pond, and the two fell for one another right away. He proposed in Monet’s garden in France, on the famous bridge from Monet’s paintings, and afterward took her to dinner at Arpège in Paris. Their romantic garden party wedding was full of soft colors, flowers and lights, and decorations included a big circular flower arch, chandeliers hanging from the trees, and outdoor vintage furniture. A live band played, and the dance floor stayed full all night. A friend of the couple brought a huge costume bear head to the reception; as these things go, soon guests were playing a game of throwing the bear head to someone who then had to put it on and dance in the middle of the circle, which made for fantastic photos as well as memories.
