Q: How did you meet?
A: "We met the old-fashioned way, on Tinder. Theresa was new to Austin, while Nick was finishing up his doctorate program at UT. We decided to meet at a show at Hole in the Wall to make sure the other was as cool as they seemed in the virtual world. Our first "official" date involved a motorcycle ride to dinner on the East Side, immediately followed by a power outage that affected the restaurant and every other establishment in the neighborhood. So we headed to Backspace for dinner downtown and had a classy after-dinner drink at Don's Depot. Random detail - someone shouted that we made a cute couple as we rode through downtown, and another stranger left a candle on Nick's motorcycle while we were at Don's. If that's not a good omen, we don't know what is."
Q: Tell us about the wedding planning process.
A: "Even though it was still under construction when we were touring venues, we fell in love with Prospect House from the start. The minimalist design, clean lines, and bright natural light seemed like the perfect blank canvas for us to add colorful touches and personal details. We had fun picking wildflowers in Dripping Springs in the first months after we got engaged - (we pressed them and later used them on the wedding programs), watercolor painting the table numbers, and learning calligraphy for the invitations...both of us have an artsy / handy side, so it was fun (and admittedly stressful at times) to have a hand in the details throughout the planning process!"
Q: Tell us something funny about the two of you.
A: "You wouldn't know it by looking at us, but we're really fast walkers."
Q: What was your favorite part of the day?
A: "Saying our vows! The wind blowing, the clouds were rolling in above us, the rain was just beginning to sprinkle. Couldn't have asked for a more epic moment."
