We first met Jenna & Chris on Halloween night at Mel & Dave’s wedding in Puerto Rico. Jenna was dressed as a 1920’s flapper and Chris pulled off a very convincing  Will Ferrell in the move Elf! It was such fun wedding and led Ben & Eric all the way to San Clemente, California for Jenna & Chris’s wedding at Casa Romantica. Such a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony set looking over the Pacific Ocean. Such a magical night, the sunset was perfectly timed for portraits and the first dances were just in time to catch the evening twilight. As the light faded everyone enjoyed a wonderful dinner set under the stars. They danced the night away in the breezeway looking over the ocean and stars.

Sophie + James know how to throw a party! They had an amazing wedding at W Hotel in Downtown Austin. The W Hotel is a great modern backdrop for a stylish wedding and the Blind Date band did a great job of keeping the party going all night. The dance floor was pretty much packed the whole night with tons of opportunities for action!  I loved that everyone was emotionally present during the wedding which always makes my job easier. The ceremony was held at Central Cristian Church which has beautiful natural light beaming through the stained-glass windows. The candles behind the alter set the mood for a romantic and touching ceremony. After a short shuttle ride back to The W the fun really started! Cocktail our was out the balcony near the ACL venue and once the reception hall was decorated they served an amazing dinner for all their out of town guest. Barbaras Brides did a fantastic job keeping things on track and in no time, the dance party had started and it didn’t let up till late night when they served everyone some delicious midnight snacks so they could keep dancing at the afterparty.

Shannon & Jay held their wedding at the beautiful Vineyards at Chappel Lodge. Throughout the wedding day you could really see both of their personalities shine in the interactions with family and friends and all the playful activities they had planned for the day. The ceremony was held outdoors under the oak trees and the cocktail hour was outdoors in the lawn complete with games like giant jenga and bean bags. The fun transitioned into the reception hall where every member of the bridal party was theatrically introduced to their own theme song which set the tone for the dance party to follow! Ever since Shannon & Jay first started describing their vision for their wedding at The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge I was pretty excited but I had no idea the dance party was going to go so hard all night! When the time came to send off the bride and groom everyone just wanted to keep partying and the energy in the room was electrifying! Needless to say, they know how to throw a party, mainly because they were right in the middle of the dance floor the whole time.:)

Meg & Ty’s wedding at Camp Lucy was simply stunning! The love shared between the two of them could be seen throughout the entire day and subtle personal touches like the Goatman wedding cake topper made it really unique. Despite a slight setback in the the schedule due to a minor shuttle bus accident, Meg & Ty stayed calm and collected and remained full of excitement to get married and with the help of Becky from Pearl Events, we were able to get everything back on target for the reception. Keeping a positive energy despite minor setbacks on your wedding day can make all the difference in the wedding photos!
