It’s hard to sum up Carrie and Kaye’s wedding in a few short sentences. It still stands in my mind as one of the best weddings I’ve documented, and for a variety of reasons. Fischer Hall, as always, brought a rustic peace and serenity to the day through it’s bucolic setting in the rolling Hill Country and the massive ancient oaks and pecan trees that oversaw the affairs of the day from above. Coupled with the great talents of Emily and company at Bird Dog Wedding and the whole place danced with tasteful crafty color and beautiful displays of rustic style. The people were top notch, really and truly; a boisterous bunch hailing from near and far but all set on the task of merrily celebrating the marriage of two of the absolute happiest people I’ve ever come across. The moments of joy were numerous. Their love, and everyone else’s for that matter, washed over the place time and again that day. Carrie and Kaye left their mark.

Nicole & Kayvon started their wedding day in their the east Austin home. Nicole works for herself as a meditation & healing coach (Keep Your Temple Well) so naturally everyone felt calm in her presence.:)The wedding took place on a gorgeous summer day at Laguna Gloria. The ceremony was officiated by a friend and incorporated Persian traditions. After the ceremony they danced down the aisle barefoot which set the tone for the evening ahead! The dancing started during cocktail hour, with a pause for dinner, and continued on into the night thanks to Austin band, KP & the Boom Boom. Thank you to Pearl Events for your help with this one!

It’s always nice when we have the opportunity to shoot a wedding in a new venue. We get a fresh perspective on shooting and we get to have a blank canvas to work with! Rachel & Dayton had their wedding in the hill country at the new Ma Maison wedding venue. Such a beautiful backdrop for their summer wedding. One of my favorite moments was when they exchanged love letters & gifts before the ceremony around the corner. Dayton was so nervous he asked Caroline to take off her mirrored sunglass so he would not accidentally see her as she approached. It was such a sweet moment. Ma Maison also turned out to be a fantastic space for a fun reception complete with a live band and a hopping dance floor! Our favorite shot from the reception was during the first dances where were were able to showcase the beautiful open spaces and elegant chandeliers. The dance party continued into the night ending with a sparkler exit and a vintage car getaway.

It’s amazing that through people we have met over the years, via business, school, & friends we are able to meet people of all cultures, careers, & places. Weynab & Colin are some of those people we were lucky enough to photograph based on a referral from a former classmate Ben had at Texas state 7 years ago (who also happened to be living in San Francisco). Weynab & Colin had their ceremony at the Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church and the reception at the Bridge’s Golf Club in San Ramon. After photographing portraits on the beautiful grounds, exploring via golf cart, they had an action packed reception with tearful speeches, packed dancefloor, & spiced with a few Ethiopian traditions.
