Sometimes we have a wedding that we cannot properly describe with words. A sweet & emotional first look, tables with candles as far as the eye can see, a sweet song written by parents sung by everyone, and a raging dance party complete with confetti. Well, it does sound pretty epic when we write it like that but the photos are the best way we can properly show off this wedding. We knew that Tatianna & Will were going to get down based on their dance skills at Sarah & Dan’s beautiful wedding just 2 months prior but we didn’t know that their friend’s could get down just as well as they could. They even hosted a competition, complete with trophy, to appoint an official champion. Thank you to Brock & Co Events for doing such an amazing job at this Austin wedding at the Driskill hotel.

We are so fortunate to know so many people all around the world. Carla & Mike are now included among those people. Both from England, they decided to have a destination wedding in Sorrento, Italy for the same reasons we had a destination wedding. For them, Sorrento is just as close as Costa Rica is to us. We met up with them for the first time at the rehearsal dinner two nights before the wedding and began the celebration with their friends & family in a beautiful Italian garden with house made wine. They had their ceremony at the Cloister of St. Francis in downtown Sorrento and the reception just outside of town at Hotel Relais Blu. The ceremony was completed mostly in Italian and translated to English and was a popular tourist attraction for everyone that happened to walk by! We walked the streets of Sorrento before heading to the reception in their tiny rented Italian Fiat. Carla took the back seat to avoid having to hang her beautiful gown out the window! The wedding reception overlooked the island of Capri which at sunset was absolutely breathtaking and ended poolside. We look forward to visiting these two in London next year
We first met Arol back in 2008 when we were all getting our Austin wedding photography business started (he more so than us at this point). We photographed a few weddings with him and soon became friends. When he told us he was engaged to Kim, we were so happy for them and were pleasantly surprised when they told us that they wanted us to photography the wedding at The Headliners Club in downtown Austin! It is always an honor to shoot another photographers wedding and we were so excited to be apart of their wedding day! Kim and Arol are such an amazing, fun, non-stop smiling couple with an energy that inspires everyone around them. Their reception reflected this sentiment perfectly. From the moment the dance floor was opened there was non-stop dancing thanks to Look no Further entertainment. We stayed with them throughout the after party and joined them for their sunday (funday) brunch the following afternoon, so happy to have been able to photograph them as well as join in the celebration!
We first met Mary-Kate & Matt at their Austin engagement session. They both live Houston now but MK grew-up in a town very close to Geneva, NY where they had their wedding. Belhurst Castle was a perfect venue for their destination wedding with beautiful views of the finger lakes. This area is known as the wine country of upper New York so they decided to kick off the festivities with a wine tasting tour. This made the wedding rehearsal all the more interesting than most.The weather was absolutely gorgeous on the wedding day and the light could not have been any better! Matt’s grandparents are deaf so they incorporated some sign language into the ceremony. It was all very touching and there were not many dry eyes in the crowd. After the ceremony we took MK & Matt down to the docks for some portraits and then the party got started! The music was so good that even the guy in the full neck brace could not resist busting a move!
