Hotel El Convento Wedding

We met Taryn & Javi on a rainy day in New York city for their engagement session about 11 months before their wedding day. Although it was supposed to rain on their wedding day as well, it was a perfectly sunny day instead. Taryn & Javi had their ceremony at the San Juan Cathedral and their reception at our favorite San Juan hotel, the El Convento. Their wedding incorporated Catholic, family, and Puerto Rican traditions. At the reception, Taryn’s dad made sure to grab a have a photo with Taryn & a basketball, a family tradition since she was in high school. Taryn had also surprised Javi at the reception with a traditional Pleneros band that kept the party raging in between a band break. The energy was infectious as everyone seemed to know every word to every song! The party continued on after the El Convento and ending up lasting until the wee hours of the morning by the pool of La Concha.

This was our third trip to Puerto Rico for a wedding and it did not disappoint as we were finally able to see a different side of the island we had never seen before, the side with beautiful beaches! Two days after the wedding we went with Taryn & Javi and some of their wedding guests on a catamaran to clear blue waters for snorkeling. Unfortunately, many of us walked away with sunburns.:)

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.:)

A day full of smiles would be a great way to sum up this Palm Door wedding.  Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Tyler and Eddie celebrated this new stage in their life with an overflowing of happiness.  Eddie’s grin shone ear to ear; Tyler’s a good match. Their Day of the Dead themed wedding in downtown Austin was full of color and flare.  The conversation was lively, the laughter strong, and funky dancing was plentiful.  These two can throw a great shindig!
