Wedding at The W featured on Style Me Pretty today!

I first met Lindsay and Jason last year when I shot her sister, Hillary’s wedding.  Working with this family has been such a pleasure!  The mother of the bride(s), Shelley, was instrumental in designing each of these weddings.  Along with Caplan Miller, David Kurio and the rest of the creative team, they turned the 2nd floor of The W in Austin, TX into a gorgeous, modern affair complete with an enormous, acrylic chuppah on the balcony and an entire room dedicated to candy.   The whole room.  AND Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was playing all night in the candy room all night.  Nice, right?   There are plenty of more details sprinkled throughout this wedding.  Make sure you look through the gallery to see them in all their glory.

Many thanks to The Zausmer Family for having us shoot both of their daughters’ weddings!  What an honor it was.

Have a great day, world!

Shannon + Will

Wellies served as gifts for the bridesmaids!  Althought they didn’t wear them during the wedding, these boots did come in handy when there were many drinks spilled on the dance floor towards the end of the reception!

Adorable customized flasks were the gifts for the groomsmen – a lovely idea, I thought…

I love the way they transformed the ballroom of The Driskell Hotel.  The draping and the screens on the panels (making them look like windows), was really beautiful and a unique attention to detail.

Check back tomorrow for a second post from this wedding.  It will be chock-full of details!

Nicole + Will – Austin, Texas

Nicole and Will got married on a perfectly pleasant February evening in Austin, Texas.  The ceremony was at University Christian Church on campus and the reception was a short walk over to the new AT&T Conference Center, also on campus.  DJ Manny was there to keep folks on the dance floor!!

It’s going to be a glorious weekend in Austin, TX.  I hope everyone gets out and enjoys it.  The heat will be here soon enough!

Have a good one,

Get your garden on….

I would love to say “here’s a photo I shot in my garden…”  But alas, it’s a photo I shot for Big Red Sun while in Venice Beach, CA.  They make any landscape swoonable – that’s a word, right?

Big Red Sun is located in both Venice Beach and Austin.  Check them out y’all.

Happy Spring!

Blessings

My second photographer, Emily Joyce, shot this photo of Jennifer and Chris receiving a blessing after exchanging their rings during the ceremony.  I love it because it is beautiful and quiet.

More of this wedding coming soon!

TGIF,

KIDDOS!

What happens when you take 5 little girls and 3 little boys and make them flower girls and ring bearers?  A lot, actually.  Although it was impossible to get them all in a photo together, they actually did a pretty good job!  But first there will be the donning of adorable Mexican dresses, obligatory bed jumping and squealing, wedding dress gazing and other adorableness…

Cute, right?!?  This wedding is chock full of style and design.  I love the paper flower wreaths on the girls’ heads and the boys’ monogrammed shirts.  Wait until you see the rest.  It’s pretty drool-worthy!

Hope you’re having a super Wednesday,
