We absolutely love Austin. Everything about this eclectic city screams home, not to mention Nina is a unicorn ( born and raised in Austin ). One thing is for sure, Austin lives up to its motto “Keep Austin Weird”. Out of town guests love coming here and we are constantly told how wonderful this city is. On a side note Nina’s dad used to own Nuno’s blues bar downtown and the resident drag queen of Austin, Leslie, was a frequent visitor. For those of you who were not lucky enough to meet Leslie let me tell you he was a blast but stay with me this leads into this wedding post I promise.
Brittany and Lisa were married at the absolutely gorgeous Austin Women’s Club also known as Chateau Bellevue. Being as Austin is full of pride ( in more ways than one ) I was surprised to hear this was going to be the first lesbian wedding at the AWC! Yes, the first lesbian wedding at the Austin WOMENS Club, what an honor. Brittany and Lisa were so laid back and fun! I couldn’t have pictured a better couple to inaugurate the AWC into the LGBTQ wedding scene. So how does Leslie get tied into all of this? Well technically he doesn’t but they did have the fantastic drag performer Toni Andrews there to put on a surprise performance for all of their guests.
This wedding was full of firsts but one thing is certain, this is only the first of many great years of happiness for these two. Our job is to celebrate love and thats exactly what their story shares.
Huge thanks to all of the vendors that helped put this event together
