Some interesting tidbits about Olivia and Isham's wedding:
- Olivia got ready at the Hotel San Jose, where she worked at the front desk back in 2004. Isham prepped in the sister hotel across the street, Hotel St. Cecilia, where the newlyweds stayed after getting hitched.
- Both of their mothers wore cowboy boots. Olivia's mom wore pink, Isham's mom wore blue. It wasn't intentional.
- The couple drove to the wedding together in a vintage Peugeot.
- Wedding guests enjoyed daily dips in the restorative waters of Austin's famous Barton Springs during their time in town.
- The bride gave the groom an antique turquoise stone locket with photos of their cats inside. He carried it in his pocket.
- Olivia and Isham turned to the community and local talents to characterize and personalize their intimate spring wedding. They tried to keep the focus of the day on their family and friends and celebrating what had brought them together, rather than being the center of focus.
All of the wedding guests were also invited to a welcome celebration the night before, at the Red Bluff Amusement Park and Worm Farm. Dinner centered around a pig roast, guests signed a large print of the evening's invite as a keepsake for the couple, and Woodsboss (a grassroots country rock band) provided the entertainment.
The beverage menu honored the various places Isham has lived: mint juleps as a nod to his Virginia roots, wine from Washington state (where he grew up), and Siete Leguas and Tequila Ocho tequilas for his time spent in Mexico.
