Looking Back at 2016


2016 was an amazing year for all of us at Altared Weddings, and we have a lot of people to thank for it! We get to work with incredible venues and planners each week that make our jobs fun. They are trend-setters, organizational gurus, and friends. We can’t thank them all individually, but here are some of our favorite moments from 2016 out of the 362 events we participated in.

We love working with Christina Lewis with Wedding Warriors, because she always brings a fresh idea into a familiar space. We get to do a lot of events at the Omni, but we knew having Christina on board would add a new perspective. This time she added an extra splash of elegance by bringing in our chandeliers to the ballroom. It was stunning!

The styled shoots

This year we were asked to participate in more styled shoots than ever before! We worked with Brides of Austin for several of their spreads, and many of the designs put together by other planner went on to be featured in a number of popular blog sites. We are really excited to see our work being featured coast to coast!

The accolades

In addition to being featured in so many nationally recognized outlets, we were given The Knot’s Best of Weddings award for 2016 and the Couples’ Choice Award from Wedding Wire. While we don’t do this for the recognition, it is always great to be noticed!

A big corporate event!

This year we participated in one of our biggest events to date! We provided DJ and dancing services for a conference that had over 11,000 people in attendance! This was our largest event of the year, and this time we had the opportunity of leading the crowd in a variety of country-western dancing! It was a great experience for the non-Texans!

We added more services!

This year we expanded quite a bit! In addition to expanding to Houston, we also added new services! We can now provide staging and A/V for events, we have the Mirror-Me photo booth to give our clients something different for their event, and we added an entire line of industrial inspired pendant lighting.

Fresh faces

We also expanded our team! This year we hired a new operations manager, Ashley, and trained two new DJs who have received great feedback from all of their clients! Having such a consistent and professional team makes the job remarkable. Here’s to 2017 being just as amazing!
