Why do I need a wedding planner if my venue has a coordinator?

New Arbor, New Weddings, New View!

We are so excited to announce that our NEW Arbor Ceremony site is finally completed! 

Our first Wedding at the Arbor was for our sweet couple Laura & Derek, who’s love was celebrated and complimented with a beautiful sunny day!

The new landscaping around the Dolphin pond gave the space more of an open feel and thus allowed for a  pleasant cocktail hour with passed hors d’ oeuvres and wine. Jenna, had the pleasure of working with Cindy, the mother of the bride, who’s neighbor contributed to all the wonderful DIY decor seen at this wedding.

BEN & lAUREN

Lauren and Ben’s Wedding was definitely a day filled with love and happiness. With great weather and a romantic sunset ceremony under the Gazebo, the happy couple was able to share their special day with their closest friends and family. The true spark however, came from Lauren & Ben’s contagious smiles throughout the night.

2016 Vintage Villas Dream Wedding Giveaway

The winner of the “2016 Vintage Villas Dream Wedding Giveaway” has been announced.We wish to thank everyone and give our congratulations to Melissa & Todd along with and the many other great couples who entered.

Melissa & Todd

 

 Here is Melissa’s story

“Yes, I can come help you clean your house because you are sick”.  That was it. I was hooked. I told my girlfriends about what my new boyfriend was willing to do for me and they immediately said, ” You have to marry that man!”  Fast forward three years, lots of love and drama later and he takes me to Mount Bonnell  at sunset and asks me to do something I have never done before, become his wife.

 

My name is Melissa and I am a middle school teacher. Todd is a social worker with the Department of Family and Protective Services. We spend our days (and nights) helping kids. We want kids to  have better lives through education and opportunities. I coach a UIL team and also coordinate a group of kids that promote study skills and being a good student.  Todd works with foster youth that are about to age out of care. He helps kids work to get into college or trade school and learn the skills to be a functioning adult in society.

We live almost check to check. Family is not really able to help us with the cost of the wedding so it is up to us. We are able to save just a little each month to try to afford the wedding we feel we can be proud of. I think that we deserve to win this dream wedding because we love each and dedicate our time to better the world. Winning this wedding package would allow us to celebrate with our friends and family in a way I think we have earned. A wedding should be a reflection of a couple and the community of love around them; a Vintage Villas dream wedding would reflect our community of love.

 

 

VINTAGE VILLAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Vintage Villas Hotel and Events offers one of the best views in Austin for weddings and portrait sessions.  This is a great location for a “sunset wedding”.  The view not only provides an awesome backdrop for wedding ceremonies, but is great for the after wedding portraits of the bride and groom.  Below are some photo examples that AJH Photography captured at Vintage Villas.  We love shooting out there, and the photos show it!
