A Whimsical Library-Themed Wedding at Max's Wine Dive in Austin, Texas

rn Chapel Dulcinea is an open air, mission-style chapel that seats an intimate group of 30 with a stunning view of Texas Hill Country. That’s why it was perfect for Catherine Acker (27 and an administrative assistant) and Justin Acker’s (35 and a verification engineer) wedding. Plus, the chapel has its own symbolic wedding tradition: To be married, Catherine and Justin had to walk on a balcony that extends over the side of a cliff. After they exchanged their own vows, the brunch reception moved to Max’s Wine Dive in Austin, Texas, where Events by Decisions helped them customize all the details to create a classic library theme—we’re talking library checkout-card-themed invitations, books on the tables and even a typewriter guest book. Bouquets of Austin included lots of pretty tulips in the floral arrangements, since tulips were the first flowers Justin gave Catherine. The most memorable personal touch? Take note of these escort cards: Made to look like like they were from a card catalog, Catherine and Justin wrote a blurb for each name card, which captured the spirit and interests of every guest.
