Can you believe it’s July?! I am still drooling over this June wedding we photographed at Hummingbird House in Austin, TX just a few weeks ago. There were so many special elements that went into this day and I adored all the sunflowers that decorated the reception, Wow Factor Design made the room look summer-time-effortless. The pre-ceremony festivities took place at the venue which makes it easy for everyone and also allows us to capture the special moments Aaron and Stephanie wanted, like when they prayed together on either side of a door right before the ceremony. I think everyone can agree that Stephanie has this timeless look about her, and Aly with Flair Style Lounge did a great job at enhancing her natural beauty (and those GORGEOUS red locks!)
Stephanie had the most detailed custom rose-gold (swoon!) engagement ring and the groom had a special engraved band that matched. Her parents wedding rings were tied around her bouquet and I also photographed their rings on Stephanies fathers bible, matching the bible verse that she had delicately tattooed on her shoulder.
This couples faith and love filled the rooms they were in, and their ceremony included a lot of firsts for us. Stephanie and Aaron chose to wash each others feet during their Christian ceremony and it was breathtaking and unique! It is no surprise these two met serving the Lord on a mission trip together.
Their bridal party was so much fun and the guys had so much fun posing…they came up with the post ceremony posing you see below and I loved how lighthearted they were. The girls brought chalkboard signs saying how they met the bride but not shown…the guys posing and playing with them as well, ha!
Pearl Snap Cuisine had the most amazing exotic fruit & cheese platter that greeted the guests to the reception. This amazing catering company also provided an excellent dinner and fabulous s’mores bar for dessert. Having sweet treats along with cake has been such a trend for 2016…who can complain with variety?
These two and their guests DANCED the night away thanks to Jaime with Live Oak DJ, and were sent off into the night by sparklers….
