All of the details in the wedding were very sweet and subtle, yet very elegant. We loved that this couple really took the time to bring in their own style and tastes.
The wedding was held outdoors at the French Legation Museum. The weather stayed dry all through the ceremony!
The rain at the end of their joyous day could not keep their spirits down and could only bring them luck! It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. Clearly Classy wishes them many years of love and happiness together.
Thomas and Audrey were married on August 3, 2013 at St. Albert the Great Catholic Church. This church is stunning! It was a small and lovely ceremony for the sweet couple.

Vanessa Budd at HEB Blooms handled all of the personal flowers, they always to a fantastic job for such an amazing price!
After the ceremony, the guests made their way to the Historic Neil Cochran House for the reception. This reception was special! It also doubled as their son, Riko’s first birthday party!
The table settings and centerpieces were simple, classy and elegant, with each table having the names of biblical couples, a perfect detail to remind them of their beliefs.
We at Clearly Classy Events are so happy that we were able to help plan and execute such a lovely day for couple and family that were so gracious and lovable. We wish them many years of happiness!
Here is a corporate event that we at ClearlyClassy Events threw for a wild bunch! While looking at an incredible view, the guests were entertained with amazing food, fun drinks and one heck of a party!

Crave Catering prepared delicious foods for the guests. Some of the dishes were things like mini tuna towers, southwest ceviche, spicy lime fried chicken bites, and pork belly bohn mi sliders. Mmmmmm
The DJ got everyone dancing and on their feet!
Besides the dancing, there were things like Bobalu Cigar Co. wrapping cigars, a balloon artist making totally adult balloon art, a Quick Draw photobooth, a numerologist predicting everyone’s amazing future, delicious adult snowcones, life-size Jenga from Yardtastic, and and don’t even think we left out the queens, Kelly Kline and her crew rocked it out!!!
This group sure knows how to party and we love setting the stage for them to have a blast! We look forward to working with them on their fabulous events in the future!
Brides can’t do it on their own wedding day!
As much as a bride plans her wedding and would like to believe that they can execute the day of their wedding it’s impossible. She can only be at one place at one time and getting her hair and make-up done and sipping champagne with her bridesmaids is her work that day!!
Do you really want your family working on the day of your wedding?
If you can’t do it then guess what? It will end up being your family, your aunts, uncles, cousins and/or your mom! It’s best to hire a professional to handle the final details so that your family can relax and enjoy the festivities!
Do you really want to be troubleshooting or solving problems on the day of your wedding?
It’s no secret that best laid plans typically have issues. No matter how many times you go over the timeline or ask all of the questions you can possibly think of something WILL go wrong. Do you really want to be the person to have to handle all of that? Leave it to the professionals! The people that do this every weekend know how to handle it and if they are any good will handle it without you even finding out!
Because the venue manager, photographer and DJ are NOT coordinators!
It happens all of the time, venue managers, photographers and DJs end up running the show. But is this really their job? No! The venue manager is there to make sure everyone is comfortable in their venue, i.e. lighting, air conditioning, clean restrooms etc. Photographers are there to capture your EVERY precious moment, but if they are busy herding people or making sure you have your cake knives for the cake ceremony they might miss something! DJs are there to entertain your guests, make sure that the music is seamless, not check on the buffet so that they can announce it to the guests! This all falls under the role of your wedding coordinator! The person that is there for you! There for the timing and there to make sure your guests know where to be when!
Because you are crazy if you think the venue manager is going to sew up your dress if it needs it!!
Venue managers are UH-mazing and we love working with them! But it is not their job to sew up your dress if it tears, or help your groomsmen find black socks if he forgot them or make sure the shuttle arrives on time! Many folks think just because their venue comes with a day of coordinator that they are all set, but it is simply not the case. The venue managers are there to make sure all of their equipment is working properly and that everyone is comfortable in their space, do not rely on them to pull off miracles on the day of your wedding. It is just not their job.
Because every Bride deserves it.
The cost of a “Day of Coordinator” or really a “Month of” is so minimal compared to the value they offer the entire last month of your wedding that really after all of the planning and money spent on this special day you deserve it. Your mother deserves it. Invest in the final stage of your wedding and make sure you have a pro on-site to be there for you and your family. Do your homework to find the coordinator that is the right fit for you and is a true professional and once your hire them have faith that they know what they are doing and will make sure that everything goes off without a hitch! Or well ONE hitch!
Happy planning and best of luck! Lots of love, The Clearly Classy Team
Amanda and Robert just tied the knot! Such a sweet couple and their friends and family were just awesome to work with! We really enjoyed being a part of their special day! The ceremony and reception were held at Barton Creek Spa and Resort, a gorgeous setting for such an occasion. Andy Sams provided us with these awesome pics to share! This was a Clearly Classy wedding!
The girls took their time getting ready, and just relaxed in their wing of the hotel…they were a fun bunch! Amanda took the time to tend to the small details of her attire to be sure everything was perfect before she walked down the aisle.
A small ceremony was the host to this couple’s guests from Dallas and beyond….the weather cooperated and the day could not have been more beautiful!
During the cocktail hour and just before the bride and groom were introduced, Amanda’s brother was the musical entertainment on the piano.
The party started to hop when Anthony from Greenbelt DJ started spinning! She had an epic bouquet toss!!
These guys had a ball for their cake cutting, and we expected nothing less!!
This bunch decided to do the Harlem Shake, we cannot deny or confirm that the Clearly Classy girls did or did not participate.
The exit was done with rose petals and they went off in style on a golf cart! After it was all said and done is was such a wonderful day and great time for everyone!
Recently we had the pleasure of planning a wedding out of the country. Once we decided where we were headed the fun began! Of course in true Clearly Classy form we wanted to create the most memorable and fun experience that we possibly could! For this couple a destination wedding was ideal. Spending and extended period of time with their nearest and dearest was what they were looking for in their wedding weekend! And that they did!

Everyone flew into San Jose, Costa Rica which is a city of about 300,ooo in the center of the country. From there the guests hopped on a bus to their destination, the beautiful Los Suenos Resort. This is on the East Coast of the country and is very close to Jaco which is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the world.
This country is rich in culture, pride and beauty. The folks there care very much about visitors being welcomed and taken care of in a similar southern hospitality that we are accustomed to. Costa is a wonderful cost effective place to take your guests if you are considering a wedding out of the country.
The first arranged plans for the guests came on Day 2. This was a zip line tour through the rain forest and it was not only an exhilarating experience but offered gorgeous views of the city and ocean below! Such a great time, this is a must do for your guests!!
Later that evening it was time for the rehearsal dinner! We chartered a bus down to Manuel Antonio for a catamaran sunset dinner cruise. This was a wonderful way to kick off the weekend!
The next day began early with preparations and fun! The ladies were treated to a spa visit and the guys lounged around the pool! Hair and make-up began and the anticipation started to build!
The ceremony was gorgeous and it was held on the private beach of the Los Suenos Beach Club. Very little decor was needed to make this spot stunning!
The reception was held at a restaurant in walking distance from the ceremony site, El Galeon. It sits right above the yacht club and the views were amazing!! Everyone celebrated the marriage of Justin and Becca in true Costa Rica fashion!
We love you guys and wish you all the best, we are so honored to be apart of your special week!!
Thank you to Costa Rica Dreammakers for assisting with all of the plans and accommodations.
Held at the LBJ Student Center on the Texas State Campus, this Sweet 16 party was done right! Victoria and her parents hosted a private dinner for family and close friends before opening the doors to invited guests for dancing the night away. The night was captured by Don Anders Photography. The fabulous decor was done by a Touch of Elegance.
Dinner and party guests enjoyed delicious food from Palmers Catering and cake from Pennington Cakes. With everything pink, it wasn’t hard to miss all the details that went into making the night fabulous! Fun VIP passes, party favors, and pictures were everywhere!
The night really took off when Altared Wedding DJ’s got everyone on the dance floor, including a special choreographed performance from Victoria and her friends. Victoria let loose with a wardrobe change into a more dance-friendly number! The birthday girl was surrounded by her closest girlfriends all night, decked out in colorful matching dresses!
Happy 16th Birthday to Victoria from Clearly Classy Events!
Hissey Kientz, LLP sure knows how to throw a Christmas Party! On a gorgeous evening atop the 555 Building in Downtown Austin, the employees of the law firm were treated to incredible food, fun music, and memorable games! Held at a private residence, the spectacular decor matched the famous backdrop of the Austin skyline. DJ Manny and Santa helped get the party started!

As guests began to arrive, Shrimp Corn Dogs and Apricot Brie Puffs and other tasty teasers were passed by Crave Catering. The delicious food didn’t kept coming!! The guests were treated to a gorgeous steak dinner and a full chocolate fondue dessert station to top off the menu.
Hissey Kientz, LLP didn’t stop there! The night was made extra special with personal cigar rolling by Bobalu Cigar Co. Each guest also had a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles, California if they could make the best gingerbread cookie resembling a co-worker or the ugliest Christmas sweater!
Part of the entertainment was an ice luge sculpted by Full Spectrum Ice, this thing was a hit!!!
We look forward to working with Hissey Kientz, LLP on their fabulous events in the future! Photography was done by Jeff Loftin, one of our absolute favorite people to work with!
In this beautiful wedding a bride from West Africa and a groom from Germany come together to create a unique love story….Gloria and Torsten had a vision of a Texas wedding with brilliant colors and a romantic setting. This bride had a gorgeous vision and with the help of Clearly Classy her vision became a reality! These wonderful photos were provided to us by Infinity Weddings.
The ceremony was held at the Mission San Jose Chapel in San Antonio. Such a stunning historic church with a ton of character and a story.
The couple currently lives in Houston, Texas so there were challenges to planning from afar. But no detail was left untouched. The bride looked stunning in a mermaid style dress. She was accompanied by a lovely wedding party, many of which traveled thousands of miles to be by her side. What a testament to her friendships.
This couple was very traditional in their religion and a full Catholic Mass was the only option.
Her colors were raspberry, cream and gold and it couldn’t have come together more beautifully. The guests wore a wide array of colors making all of the pictures vibrant and fun. The flowers and lighting were all done by Pizzini Designs.
After the ceremony the guests were shuttled to the rustic Sandy Oaks Ranch in Devine, Texas.
Lighting and drapes were added to the room for a more dramatic effect….and the flowers just turned out gorgeous!
The cake were done by Cakes by Cathy Young, such sweet detail.
We had so much fun, planning the tiniest of details for this reception…..Absolutely Delicious was responsible for the delectable and diverse menu.
It didn’t take long for the part to kick off full steam with the help of 1PartyDJ!
The bride made a quick wardrobe change and then right back to the party!
It was bittersweet to see this one end…but what a gorgeous exit!
Love, love, love Gloria and Torsten…we wish them the best!
