The Corpus Christi Art Center is a great place to have a Corpus wedding. It is located near the Corpus Christi Marina, has wonderful indoor space and a grand courtyard. Rachel and Nick had a large wedding with purple accents and lots of personalized details. The groom and groomsmen had boutonnieres that were made out of fishing hooks and feathers, so they looked like fishing lures without being too straightforward. The brides’s dress from Sposa Bella Bridal Boutique also had feathers that made a beautiful sweetheart neckline. Rachel and the bridesmaids got ready at the Omni Hotel and then went to the Art Center to put on the dress and the finishing details. The ceremony took place in the courtyard and it allowed for plenty of room for guests to watch the ceremony. Razzle Dazzle provided the decorations and I was very fond of the backdrop that stood behind the bride and the groom during the ceremony. After the ceremony the entire wedding party went to the park beside the Art Center for formal photos. This couple gave me a lot of time for formals and it made the day less hectic and we were able to take a lot of beautiful photos of the couple on their wedding day. The reception took place in the courtyard and had live music that everyone enjoyed. At the end of the night the bride and the groom left The Art Center under confetti thrown by family and friends. After the confetti exit the couple then went down to the Corpus Christi Yacht Club and got on a sail boat and took a cruise around the marina for a magical end to their wedding day!
This Vintage Villas wedding was beautiful. Charlie and Nancy chose Vintage Villas on Lake Travis for their wedding in late October and that can be a gamble. The weatherman smiled and it was wonderful weather on their wedding day. We had clear blue skies for their ceremony, which took place over looking the lake under the gazebo. The toasts, cake cutting and first dance were all timed perfectly. The guests simultaneously enjoyed the gorgeous sunset and the wedding reception festivities from their tables in the Sunset Room. [As a side note, I don't always eat wedding cake but theirs smelled amazing. It was so good I tracked down their coordinator to ask who made it so I could recommend the bake shop to other couples. Turns out it was from Walton's Fancy and Staples! I often meet with my couples at this cute downtown Austin coffee shop because it is easy to get to and has great coffee. I was surprised because when I met with Charlie and Nancy at Walton's for our pre-wedding meeting, I had no idea they were also doing cake tasting.] A friend of the bride did the DJing for the reception. All of the wedding guests enjoyed dancing until the bubble exit at the end of the night. The couple traveled back to Texas from out of state and their entire wedding day, from beginning to end, was filled with their close friends and family and everything went smoothly. I shot my first Vintage Villas wedding almost 5 years ago and I still always enjoy shooting there and working alongside the awesome folks that make it flow so smoothly!
Andrea and Cole had a great wedding day. Their wedding mass took place at St. Catherine of Siena Austin and their reception was at Saengerrunde Hall in downtown Austin. Andrea chose gray and white as her wedding colors and chose really practical but appropriate bridesmaids dresses from J. Crew. During the wedding mass it was a nice juxtaposition of the white and gray next to the colorful mural behind the altar. After the ceremony we quickly took the necessary family portraits and then headed to downtown Austin. Heavenly Day Events helped coordinate everything and by the time we arrived with the wedding party the guests were already drinking, eating and enjoying the reception. This reception had a lot of families, old and young. It was fun to see everyone laughing and joking around the dance floor. The confetti exit at the end of the night was a super fun end to a really nice wedding. Congratulations Andrea and Cole!
I love personality. Mary and Karl contacted me because their friends Will & Lauren had used me for their wedding. I shouldn’t have been surprised but when I arrived on the wedding day and met the bride and the groom for the first time face to face I almost instantly knew they were super fun and had some personality. The Inn at Wild Rose Hall was the perfect setting for this small and intimate wedding. The bride and groom now live in the Pacific Northwest but their friends and family are still around the Austin area. We started by taking photos of the wedding party and then the bride and groom. There were a lot of details that all flowed together nicely and the ceremony was even officiated by the bride’s sister. After the ceremony the guests sat down for a lovely dinner, some very heartfelt toasts and a little dancing. The bride and groom set up a Photo Booth with a polaroid they bought themselves and some scrap books for guests to write special notes to the couple. It was a huge success and I bought a camera just like they used after I saw how much fun it was for everyone! At the end of the night we took a portrait underneath the big twinkle light wrapped trees. The way the shot captured the bright full moon made the photo absolutely magical!
