Last weekend, WeddingWire and 3 of Cups Weddings & Events hosted a special garden party community event in Austin, Texas! Engaged couples, wedding parties, family, and friends throughout the Austin area gathered at The Sanctuary Event Space for an afternoon of mingling and inspiration. Some incredibly talented Austin wedding vendors joined the Sunday soirée to share expert tips and creative ideas covering every aspect of planning including food, drink, beauty, décor, entertainment, and beyond. Here’s a peek inside the party, all perfectly captured by Dustin Finkelstein Photography.
