Our 15 Favorite First Dance Songs

The First Dance is a sweet tradition that most couples include in their wedding.  We see a lot of wedding traditions go out the window, but the First Dance continues to make it’s appearance! It’s a unique time for the couple to celebrate the promises they just made – not to mention, it’s great for them to have a little alone time on the dance floor!

Spring Backyard BBQ Wedding

I’ve always had lofty ideas of inviting over my closest family and friends for a spring backyard BBQ. The adults would chat and sip on their drinks while the kids ran around and played with hula-hoops and bubbles in the grass. The spring flowers would be brightly bloomed and the string lights overhead would make everything glisten. We would all share some BBQ, as the band gets ready to play country music (our friends just so happen to be in a country band) so that we can two-step the night away.

Brunch in Austin

If you’re anything like us, here at Mercury Hall, you are a little obsessed with brunch. Brunch is an amazing creation; a mixture of breakfast foods, lunch foods, and lots of Mimosas and Bloody Marys. It’s pretty dreamy and is usually, in one way or another, included in your wedding weekend plans.

Wedding Ceremonies at Mercury Hall

Wedding ceremonies are such a beautiful tradition: walking down the aisle with family and friends, the exchanging of vows, and a kiss to start off the marriage. We know that most of the wedding planning focus is on the wedding reception and not so much the ceremony, so we want to offer a little help for making your ceremony look really beautiful!

The First Look

Weddings are slowly becoming less and less traditional -- Brides and Grooms want to make their wedding their own. One tradition that has been changing is the Groom not seeing the Bride until she walks down the aisle.

Spring Weddings

It feels like spring has sprung here in Austin, all these 75 degree days are just too beautiful to handle.

I’m ready for sunny skies every day, the smell of freshly blooming flowers when I walk outside, and the warm (but not too warm!) weather.  Not to mention, I’m ready for all the fun weddings!

Spring is one of my favorite seasons for weddings.  You don’t have to search for inspiration -- the fresh flowers are springing up all over the place and I love it when brides take advantage of that!  Bright pinks and salmons and yellows flood the wedding scene in spring, making for statement weddings that you can’t get out of your mind.
