South Congress Hotel Wedding : Colorful, Non-traditional Wedding

I’ve been to some fun weddings in the past decade, but Chelsea & Cecil’s wedding really takes the cake (so to speak, ha ha!). The couple chose to tie the knot at the brand spanking new South Congress Hotel, which provided a plethora of beautiful modern architecture for stunning photos. And even though it rained off and on all day, the couple took it in stride and didn’t let some sprinkles slow down their wedding day celebration! As you can see, we weren’t able to get a sunset with all the clouds, but these blue poolside and South Congress dusk shots more than make up for it!!! Pearl Events planned and organized this super fun and personalized day, which started with the couple greeting their guests as they arrive – what a fun, non-traditional way to do things! The guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers, with giant gold foil balloons spelling out the couple’s name on the foyer wall. Then the bride, escorted by her adorable nephew, and groom entered the ballroom through separate doors and met to hold hands under the Hindu mandap for their ceremony, with all of the guests’ tables surrounding them. After they were declared married, the couple went straight into their first dance under the impressive floral mandap by Pollen Floral Art – I mean, look at those gorgeous blooms! Guests enjoyed an amazingly delicious dinner, followed by not ONE, but TWO surprise entertainers, Mariachi Estrella, followed by Austin Samba School, complete with fully decked out dancers and dozens of drummers. Everyone took the dance party out into the rain for the incredible samba performance, and no one even cared that it was raining because they were having too good of a time! Once the performance was over, Austin Pro DJ kept the party hopping inside on the dance floor. And let me tell you, this was a dancing crowd! Friends and family formed two lines and Chelsea & Cecil had a Soul Train exit as they went down the middle of the line and danced their way all the way to the elevators! Big congratulations to the newlyweds on your incredible South Congress Hotel wedding!!! To sign up for event notifications and order prints, click here.
