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.
Nina and I have been in Austin for almost our whole lives! Well, she was born and raised here and I “came as quick as I could” when I was 10 but I feel like I’ve grown up here. This place is our home and as it has grown we have seen more and more brides coming from out of town! I remember when Austin only got busy during SXSW but now it seems like there is some festival every weekend and its popularity has skyrocketed! Seriously cranes have become a part of the Austin skyline, and out of town clientele has become a huge part of our business. Erica and Alex came all the way from Washington D.C for the bluebonnets and their session couldn’t have been better. With crisp sunny skies and a very blossoming bluebonnet season, everything was in place to create this beautiful session:
Can you guys believe 2017 is long gone?! This year has completely gotten away from us. Our little business nugget was busy and thriving (no complaints here!) but our personal lives were so swamped, this blog of ours didn’t get much lovin’. We plan on posting some LONG overdue weddings from last year, and what better way to kick off 2018 with our first wedding of 2017? It’s crazy to see how consistent out style is yet how its evolved this past year.
Jenny and Jordan tied the knot almost a whole year ago at Kindred Oaks in Georgetown, TX. It’s not every day that there is a kidney cake, and I thought it was just an inside joke at first! Turns out, Jordan was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy just a year before their wedding and underwent a kidney transplant (his dad was his living donor!!) six months before their wedding day! You would never know… he was healthy and in good spirits and they couldn’t wait to start their life together as husband and wife after such a dramatic health scare. After peaking at these photos again, I want to start forcing some more emerald green bridesmaid dresses and engraved gold flasks…
If you follow our blogs at all you know the last post talked about reuniting with high school friends through our career and then I found this! This is a special one because both Nina and I knew the Groom ( Joey ) from high school, on a side note I also knew Lenzie from waaaaay back in Middle school. Lenzie and Joey joined together at Kindred Oaks which seems to be a highly blogged location in our past as I keep looking through our previous year ( keep it up Kindred ). Nina has always been a better writer than me so I will just keep this short, enjoy the photos and as always a huge shoutout to the amazing vendors that make these weddings possible.
