Samantha and Blake tied the knot in November at Ma Maison! This venue is located is the ever-growing city of Dripping Springs, just outside of Austin, TX. With Dripping Springs being so conveniently located towards the city and offering that beautiful Texas hill country, it’s no wonder why so many of our clients are getting hitched there! We have shot quite a few weddings at Ma Maison and this is surprisingly one of the ONLY ceremonies that was held outside. Reason being, this venue is absolutely perfect for winter weddings and has the perfect set up for a “plan b” if it rains. Their grand hall is elegant and offers ample room for a ceremony if needed.
Samantha has such an elegant and classic look, I was so jealous of her beautiful red hair and blue eyes. The elegant feathers and bird cage veil complimented her to a tee! She introduced us to the amazing “chambong” which is obviously the classier sister to a beerbong haha! She took it like a champ and it was such a funny moment to capture. You couldn’t wipe the smile from her face all day, and after learning about the past 24 hours prior, I could see why. Blake was in the hospital just the night before with a horrible virus….you would NEVER know, he put on his game face like a champ and nothing was stopping him from marrying his bride.
One of the sweetest moments of the day was Samanthas dads speech just after walking her down the isle. His words came so naturally and offered so much humor, it was such a treat to hear how blessed her parents felt to welcome Blake into the family. After they said their “I Do’s” we finished up their portraits and headed to the reception where it was impeccably decorated for the evening. The china was mis-matched and I absolutely LOVE this trend and it really breaks up the monotony in the room. The tall centerpieces took your breath away and the uplighting was just….perfect. (Ahh, perfect. My most over-used but necessary verbiage.)
The Austin Party Band KILLED IT and every pair of feet hit the dance floor that night! Live bands are making a comeback and I am not complaining, they are SO much fun!
