Our Planner Profile series is underway, and we’re so excited to introduce you all to Lindsay Meier of Bespoke Events! Through her Austin wedding planning and special events boutique, Lindsay is dedicated to planning and designing meaningful occasions. She pairs her acute attention to personality and style with expert project management skills to make for a stylish and stress-free wedding day.
Nearly 10 years ago, Lindsay began working in the events industry as a corporate event planner working with Fortune 500 companies to execute large-scale events and productions. She ventured into the world of wedding planning in 2013 after planning her own wedding, discovered her passion for helping brides design their dream day and the rest is history!
What’s behind the name ‘Bespoke Events‘? For Lindsay, the best part of her job is being able to innovate and create custom events tailored precisely to each client. ‘Bespoke’ is a nod to the custom nature of each wedding she plans and designs. No two couples are alike, and Lindsay believes no two weddings should be, either! “While there are definite stylistic consistencies in my work, one of the things I love most about design is that no two weddings I design look the same,” Lindsay says. “I love really exploring the bride and groom’s style and personality to create an atmosphere that is truly unique to them. I’ve designed dark and moody and vibrant fiesta all in one season, and that is one of the things that I love most about my work! Variety and creativity is at the heart of what we do, creating truly personal, one-of-a-kind weddings.”

For the styled shoot above, it was all about the finest details. “I loved the simplicity of the tablescape, allowing the centerpiece to really shine,” says Lindsay. “I wanted the palette to be vibrant and colorful, while still feeling whimsical and romantic. To bring a contemporary feel to the tablescape, we opted for clean white chairs and simple place settings. I love that florals are moving in such an organic direction, and that clients are thinking beyond the tablescape in regards to botanical elements. I am a big fan of statement pieces, and love the idea of focusing budget on major botanical installations and taking a more simplistic approach on tablescapes. It’s a brilliant way to have that ‘wow’ element, while keeping the budget in check,” Lindsay advises.

“There were so many elements to fall in love with at Nick and Brianne’s Prospect House wedding, though my favorite detail was the lounge vignette turned photo op. In lieu of a traditional photo booth, we used the existing ceremony structure to frame the shot, adding in vintage textiles, furnishings and floral accents to create a picturesque backdrop for guests to snap photos all night long. It was a huge hit and made for some great photos!”
