Brooke and Jeff’s love story began at Wurstfest in New Braunfels, over German beer, sausage and sing alongs on the Comal River. To say it was love at first sight is an understatement, as from that day on they were inseparable.
Since the lovely couple reveled in the way that they met, they felt that it was only fitting to have a Wurstfest or German themed wedding. And, in their untraditional form and to Brooke’s mother’s dismay, they decided to call it the Wurst Wedding Ever!
Brooke and Jeff’s ideas overflowed from everything to themed designer invitations, beer coasters, pretzel bars, strudel, 12 different types of kegged beer, custom bottled beer (made by the couple), German cuisine, German post wedding attire, and the famed S-Bahn Band (headliner at Wurstfest) flown in all the way from Vancouver, Canada; complete with their alpine horn.
The seating design plan was in quintessential Wurstfest style, with a touch of farmhaus elegance. The bride spent two years collecting various brass decor, German steins, and intricate pieces of interest to add to the farm tables, resulting in a unique personal touch.
Style was not the only unique aspect of this wedding; the bride and groom’s amazing sense of humor had us laughing constantly during our two years of planning together. For the first look, the bride decided to play a joke on the groom. His reaction was priceless!
S-Bahn Band stole the show as guests literally danced the night away in New Braunfels that night. The chicken even reappeared out of nowhere for some breakdancing and cheers.
Brooke and Jeffrey’s send off was complete when they rode away in their Volkswagen bus.
Congratulations, Brooke and Jeff! Thank you for allowing us the honor of being your wedding planners and coordinators. We were overjoyed to be a part of your wedding day, and wish you a lifetime of laughter and joy.
