PHOTOS: The Carrington celebrates Valentine’s Day with free elopements


Twelve couples signed up to be part of The Carrington’s free elopement event on Valentine’s Day.

As part of the free elopement package, couples could invite up to 10 guests, and an officiant, chairs and arch was provided at the wedding venue.

Owner Cari Wible said it has always been a dream of hers to do a special event like this after rebranding the company from Carrington Crossing to The Carrington.

“We just wanted to show the community we’re here,” Wible said. “Instead of rushing down to the [Justice of the Peace office], [they can]do it somewhere pretty.”

Vendors were on site selling products and services at a discounted price to add to couples’ memories.

Austin companies Bee Lavish and Copper & Birch had a flower bar for brides and grooms to customize their bouquets and boutonnieres.

Buda Police Officer Josh McNeal provided acoustic music and Buda’s tourism department gave out free confetti cannons.

Kimberly Brooke Photographics and Al Gawlik Photography were on site to take photos, and Waffle Love ATX food truck and Simply Delicious Custom Cakes offered food options for the reception.

The Carrington is currently expanding the outdoor portion of the wedding venue that will allow couples to have space for up to 250 guests. The project should be complete by March 1.
