When Portland, Oregon, couple Sorenne Gottlieb and Matt Drenik want to get away, they head down to Austin, Texas. And so when they decided to make it official, the Lone Star State was a no-brainer. So was a rock â€˜nâ€™ roll-inspired wedding -â€“ since the pair had met at a concert Mattâ€™s band played back in 2009. The resulting affair celebrated the desert landscape and fit their personalities like a pair of broken-in cowboy boots.
Baker's twine, strung with a charm, was tied around each hemstitched napkin. Anchors, captain's wheels, guitars, and hearts with wings were selected for their symbolism to the couple.
Southern's Fine Dining gave traditional barbecue an upscale twist. Roasted vegetables, tangy citrus cole slaw, tomato soup shooters, corn bread, jalapeno mac and cheese, and salad were served.
