Oh, Free Love, how we love you so! This year, we gave 10 couples free weddings on Valentine’s Day in Austin and Fort Worth. We completely transformed our showrooms to become a ceremony + reception area with the help of some amazing vendors. This year was extra special, as it was our first year to give back to couples in DFW.
Free Love is truly a labor of love. We spend months planning and preparing for this day. It’s one of our favorite events of the entire year because we get to focus on the things we care about most — LOVE + HUMAN CONNECTION.
Austin Free Love
We couldn’t have pulled off these 4 free weddings without the help of some amazing vendors who donated their time + services. For day-of coordination, Simply XO Events was there to make sure the day went smoothly and we stayed on schedule. When you’re hosting a day of free weddings, it’s important to stay on track to make sure each couple gets their full experience. The stunning floral was designed by Truth & Blooms. This floral really popped against our white showroom and fluted stage. Photography was by the amazing Feather and Twine, who have been a part of Free Love for a few years! The officiant, Kye Flans, has also been a huge part of Free Love since the beginning. Music was provided by Premier, cakes by Michelle’s Patisserie, and catering by Contigo. Vogue Vignette was also there doing live drawings of our couples, giving them a piece of art to cherish forever.
DFW Free Love
It was our very first year to host Free Love in Fort Worth, and it was a huge success thanks to our vendors! Our amazing day-of coordinator, So Golden, was in charge of keeping the 6 couples on-schedule. She made sure everyone was happy and was such a joyful spirit to have there on the day. The stunning floral was created by Hannah Willis Creative. Seriously, we are still dreaming about those red roses. Photography was by Sara Boyd, one of our favorite gals to work with! Joined by Jasmyn specially crafted each ceremony, making sure the couples’ had a special and unique ceremony. Our friends at Pop Up Bar created a drink that was funky, delicious, and super pretty to look at — “Heart Beets 4 U.” Bubbles & Brew kept our couples hydrated with champs on tap. A special violinist from North TX Music Company played some magical music as the couples walked down the aisle. Mini, individual cakes for each couple were provided by Loft 22 Cakes + delicious custom-made macarons by WE THE BIRDS. Lastly, our friends at The Tamale Company brought their tamale cart and served the most delicious tamales we’ve ever eaten!
