These Aren't Your Average Teepees!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors CBURE#0406046

Matt and Camila's weddingOnly in Austin would the Texas Wedding of the year get pulled off without a hitch!

Two weeks ago when I was meeting my clients to open up their house they have under contract on Lake Austin to show their mom I drove by an estate where a swarm of gardeners were planting flowers furiously!  When I came back by the gates were slightly ajar and I saw all these tents!! Wow..I thought someone must be having something pretty big for their maybe a Young Life week-end retreat!

Little did I know until my clients told me last week it was where Matthew and Camila tied the knot!  People magazine came out with the scoop on the June 9th wedding in their June 25th issue that just hit the stands.
Even our senior pastor Dr. David Haney with Austin’s Riverbend Church played an important role in the wedding ceremony. It didn’t surprise me that Austin florist “Cowgirls and Flowers” took care of the gorgeous flowers! Austin’s “Estancia” provided a feast of Brazilian churrascaria for the reception!security was tight

The tents I saw were customized for the guests....air conditioned and all! These were definitely not your average Tepees!

Only in Texas would a homestead provide the back drop for a week-end party even Hollywood stars like Reese Witherspoon, Woody Harrelson, Meg Ryan, Kenny Chesney and John Mellencamp would “Come on down” for!

Not exactly teepees or log cabins.  Great things happening in Austin-it's hip, it's young, it's cool and it attracts lots of STARS in the Lone Star State!
