I had the privilege of photographing the first Open House for one of Austin’s newest venues, Springdale Station. This historical building, originally a train station, lives on the Eastside, an area of the city known for its quirkiness, art and authentically Austin-cool vibe. Moya McIntyre is the director, and she did a fabulous job hosting this event for Austin professionals. Gorgeous juicy summer-inspired florals were done by Malleret Design and Last Petal, photography was provided by myself and Lisa Hause, rentals by 10th Collection and a host of caterers featured were Royal Fig, Chef Vi, 2dine4, Catering with a Twist, Austin Catering, Primizie Catering, Urban Cowboy Southern Fusion, and cocktails provided by Drinkslingers. Springdale Station is now booking so don’t miss out!

Carly and Shane were married on a warm summer day at the beautiful Branded T Ranch in Kendalia. I love this super laid-back couple; they were so excited to get married with all their friends and family watching. Shane is so quiet; he’s got a reputation for being a terrific football coach. He’s a huge Spurs fan and had an awesome groom’s cake to show it. Carly on the other hand grew up in a household full of boys, and she can clearly hold her own. She may normally be a rough and tumble tomboy, but on this day, she was stunning. Shane’s sweet doggie, Batman, played a role in the wedding as well! There were babies running around everywhere, sometimes stealing the show during the ceremony. My favorite moment of the day however, was Carly’s dad. As he placed Carly’s hand into Shane’s, he choked and said, “Take care of my baby girl!” and I boohooed. One of the bridesmaids had to toss me a tissue! It was a perfect, perfect day, full of laughter and happy tears. Congratulations, Carly and Shane! Thanks Amanda Hartfield for assisting me!

Michelle and Alex had a beautiful, emotional wedding ceremony at the gorgeous Kendall Plantation in Boerne, Texas. I was super excited for this wedding: Michelle has a beautiful little boy, Warren, and I couldn’t wait to see this new family stand together under a covenant of love and faith. It brought back a lot of personal memories for me from my own wedding day. Warren was named after Michelle’s youth pastor, who performed their ceremony. Naturally we had to get a portrait of the two Warrens together! There were so many wonderful moments on this day, from Michelle’s dad seeing her for the first time, to her mom giving her a surprise gift right before the ceremony. Michelle used Alex’s history working for Walt Disney World in Florida as inspiration for their reception decor, and I loved the coloring pages they had for the kiddos who attended. This was really a family affair! A quick rainstorm blew through right before the ceremony and gave us the most perfect light that evening. Congratulations, Michelle and Alex! You make a wonderful team.

Suzanne and David had a beautiful, simple wedding celebration at the stunning Hyatt Lost Pines Resort just south east of Austin, Texas. This is a gorgeous destination wedding venue; it offers so much for weekend family and wedding activities! Clearly Classy Events did a great job coordinating and Suzanne’s Hayley Paige gown was every girl’s dream! Guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio area while DJ Gatsby spun cool tunes throughout the evening. Suzanne’s decor was simple, elegant and classy. Crisp white orchids and greenery made a beautiful, timeless backdrop for their wedding and Sweet Treats Bakery created a beautiful “naked” wedding cake. STEMS floral did a fantastic job on Suzanne’s bouquet! Her father performed their emotional ceremony while her mom walked her down the aisle. It was such a sweet event! The evening light was UH-mazing! Many thanks to Breanna McKendrick for assisting me. Congratulations, Suzanne and Dave!
