Alex Winkelman + Adam Zeplain

January 11, 2014

This beloved Austin couple was wed in a beautiful modern ceremony at Brazos Hall. They made their wedding as intimate and personal as possible by having dear friends participate in the ceremony, being wrapped in the groom’s dad’s tallit during the Jewish ceremony, and toasting with champagne glasses that belonged to Adam’s mom. Alex, the founder of Citizen Generation and Adam, who works for Bazaarvoice, were introduced by mutual family friends Susan and Bobby Epstein and were engaged on the beach in St. Thomas. The event was produced by Caplan Miller Events and guests dined on a 100 percent vegan meal by Kurant Events—passed hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour (like a spring roll inspired by Adam’s favorite at Elizabeth Street Café), a salad (inspired by Alex’s favorite at Uchi), plus melt-in-your-mouth mushroom ravioli. Late night food included sliders and sweet potato fries. They started the dancing off with “You Are the Best Thing” sung by their friends Reid and Jena Umstattd and danced well in to the night before heading out on their Napa Valley honeymoon.
