THE SETTING: The home of Al and Amber Koehler in Austin was the recent setting for an evening of merriment and revelry. The several hundred who attended the holiday party for the ages were treated to an evening of festive holiday spirit…and spirits, great friends, and live entertainment. The fête was the perfect mix of adult fun and childlike joy. In fact, guests look forward to it all year long.
THE STYLE: The holiday-chic crowd sported a mix of cocktail dresses, sportscoats, and holiday-inspired ensembles that created a welcoming environment for all. The duo, always the consummate hosts, provided a wide range of exciting experiences for their guests, ensuring there was something for everyone to enjoy. While some cozied up to the bar for their favorite cocktail or grabbed a nosh at one of the plentiful food stations, others aimed their sights toward the gigantic inflatable snowball where they could have their picture taken to remember the evening.
The Austin event would not be complete without live music, of course, and guests were in for a special night as they listened to a lively performance by Skyrocket. Those who stayed into the wee hours of the morning experienced an unforgettable musical surprise…an impromptu performance by musician Lukas Nelson, the son of Willie Nelson, capping off a memorable night of celebration.
