I was beyond excited to see Ana & Bill's stunning wedding recently featured on Grey Likes Weddings. Ana is one of my favorite designers in the world, and besides her inspired wedding pictured below, you can also see her talent expressed through the thoughtful, modern and yet historically sensitive renovation of Hotel Ella. Can I live there, please?
I loved their wedding so much that I could not resist sharing a few more favorites. Ana and Bill, we're thankful to have been a part of it!
Most of all, I remember... Bill and I met at the University of Texas School of Law many years ago. Thankfully a close mutual friend reconnected us 17 years later.
I was so thrilled with how our wedding vision came together. It felt right to get married at a The Saint Cecilia. It represents such a unique mix of all of our great loves: music, art, design, and Austin. We both love design driven hotels, and have stayed there on special occasions over the years.
Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of music, and we have strong affinity for music, with Bill’s ties to Austin City Limits and Lolla, it is a great match. We even stayed there overnight before the wedding to write our vows. We feel a deep connection to the property.
It was so amazing that Bob Schneider played two of our favorite songs for the ceremony. One of them (“The World Exploded in Love All Around Me”) is one of my all-time favorite songs and has been the soundtrack to many moments in my life, so it was an incredible gift for him to play that for us live as we exchanged rings.
