This wedding was a DREAM. It was our first time shooting at this rad venue and we are counting down the days until we return! Julianna and Steven were such a blast, her epic dress describes her personality (and wedding day!) perfectly: romantic, whimsical and unique. Julianna’s parents were hysterical (check out her dads photo-bomb and her mom putting on her dress,ha) and all of their guests partied the night away like champs. Check out this beautiful wedding below!
Currently editing from the beach, where it’s a solid 30 degrees cooler than back home, however far warmer than M&B’s wedding day. They planned for a warm spring day, and it absolutely was both the day before and after, but a cold front swept through the night before. The best part? YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW. Megan didn’t sweat it and her ladies braved the weather with no complaints. Megan was a shining star, I seriously told her how beautiful she was a jillion times, and by the end of the day, I meant it both inside and out. Broderick’s group were so much fun and I even passed the camera to a groomsman at the end of the reception where he surprisingly got some great (in focus, even!) photographs. Megan’s sister gave an amazing speech among the blue goblets and everyone PARTIED the night away! Take a peek at their special day, below:
Oh, boy! EVERY time we are at Barr Mansion, its so photographically perfect, and Rachel & Alex’s wedding day was no different. The flowers were in full bloom on the property and it complimented their color pallet so perfectly. I was equally obsessed with Rachel’s grandmother, she was so precious and fun to photograph. The bridal suite provides the perfect light for pre-ceremony photos and we opted for their first look on the epic wrap around porch. Having the duo see each other prior to the ceremony gave us so much time to do their wedding party photos so it didn’t soak up more reception time, also making their wedding portraits timed perfectly for the golden hour! Check out this beautiful wedding recap below:
Amber & Chris tied the knot back in November 2017 but that doesn’t stop me from crushing on their fall wedding day! Chris and Amber are such a FUN couple and their families were just as easy going as they were. They got married and had their reception at Milltown Historic District and the scene was so unique compared to some local Austin, TX venues. The venue sat on a beautiful property, full of lush trees, a river and a gorgeous bridge that we took advantage of at sunset. All the deep jewel tones of their wedding day meshed perfectly with Milltown, the perfect mix of rustic and romance! C&A had so many personal touches, INCLUDING MONOGRAMED ICE CUBES, YALL. Also, Ambers grandmother served as the flower girl and I have been trying to convince every bride since to follow her lead, it was by far the sweetest thing I have seen. Their band was awesome and Ambers brother serenaded the newlyweds as they danced to their first song as husband and wife. Check out the amazing vendors we were able to work with below! We loved working with Zac, the videographer and Silver Thistle Events made our jobs a breeze…Cheers to the spring wedding season!
Guys. IT’S MARCH. How did this happen?! Wedding season is about to come at us full force, but I am still swooning over this wedding from February. Ashley and Derek tied the knot at Rancho Mirando and it was absolutely dreamy. This was also our first VLOG of the year…Travis really loves to vlog and the creative process afterwards and he truly has such a good eye for video. Did you know that he traveled to India some years ago with a fellow photographer, shot video for the first time in his life and the short film went on to win SO. MANY. AWARDS? I am still so proud of it years later and you can watch it here:Cloth Paper Dreams
BACK TO THESE LOVEBIRDS: I knew I recognized Ashley but I couldn’t put my finger on where…later in the day it was mentioned that she competed on America Ninja Warrior and THAT IS OUR FAVORITE SHOW to watch with our kids! I suddenly felt like I was photographing a celebrity, ha! These two are just so kind and giggly. I mentioned in their engagement blog (here) that they had such a noticeable chemistry, and that held true on their wedding day. They never took their eyes off one another, and their laughs together were endless. It’s so comforting to be able to photograph couples on the first day of the rest of their lives together, and A&D couldn’t have been sweeter.
Their wedding had some personal touches that were so fun to capture, from their amazing grooms cake (fit for a deep sea fisherman!) to their wedding invitations. Their wedding was riddled with notes of deep blue everywhere…even their champagne! Without these amazing vendors, this day wouldn’t have been possible, so check out these links if you’re in need of some wedding inspiration:
Danielle & Michael had such a beautiful wedding last spring at the Texas Federation of Women’s Club Mansion! Their bridesmaids were so much fun and the day truly was easy going and classic. Danielles shoes were SO PERFECT and they definitely topped the list for my favorite flats I saw last year, not to mention that they matched her blooms just perfectly. The reception space is just so stunning and uplighting the room completely transforms this space and Andrew with Made From Skratch weddings did such a wonderful job! This venue had the perfect indoor option (because lets be honest, Texas summers can be pretty brutal) for their 100 guests and I HAVE to mention their cocktail hour…LOOK AT THAT SPREAD. These two had their first dance to a Smashing Pumpkins song and ended the evening with every single guest singing their brains out to “Bohemian Rhapsody” to end the evening. Yes, these two are as perfect for each other like grilled cheese & tomato bisque (again…best cocktail spread EVER.) and we were so happy to capture it.
