Brian and Sarah’s Wedding

There are so many weddings from the fall that I never got a chance to blog since I was in the middle of my busy season, SO now that things are slowing down a bit for the holidays, I hope to get the blog all caught up like I am!:)Here are a few favorite pictures from a wedding we shot in July for the sweet and wonderful Sarah and Brian. They’ve had their pictures back for months now, but I never had a chance to blog ‘em, so here we go!

Venue: Old Glory Ranch

Susannah and Dustin’s Wedding | Vintage Villas

Susannah and Dustin are one of my very favorite couples ever! Susannah is the cousin of another favorite couple ever (Jacquelyn and Johnny), so I guess awesomeness runs in the family. Stan and I went out to Vintage Villas to shoot this wedding, and for the first time in my entire career, I had to leave early.:(I had the most horrible stomach bug and let’s just say I couldn’t keep ANYTHING down. NOT what you want to see from your photographer on your wedding day. Many thanks to Mrs. Jennifer Nichols, who came out and relieved me for the reception time and shot alongside Stan. She got lots of fabulous pictures, but all the ones you’ll see here are mine and Stan’s, so you’ll just have to ask her if you want to see hers.:)Haha! Anyway, the day was GORGEOUS and, even though I was sick, I SO enjoyed my time with these guys. Stan said the reception was KILLER – with an appearance from our favorite band ever, Blind Date. SO bummed I missed that part! Sus and Dustin: Thank you for sharing your awesome day with us! We SO enjoyed it and can’t wait for you to see the rest of your pictures!

Susannah and Dustin chose to see one another before their ceremony and I LOVE the pictures we captured of their “first look” moment! Look at how happy they are!

Susannah’s daddy couldn’t take his eyes off her as he walked her down the isle. Tears welled up in my own eyes as I watched his face beam with pride and adoration. This was such a special moment in this incredible day.

Gorgeous couple, incredible sunlight.:)

I loved the fall colors in all of the details they chose. I’ve decided that orange is absolutely my new favorite color!

Did I mention that Susannah’s dad is a party animal? And he was so calm and collected before the reception . . . boy, did he trick us!:)

Ronnie and Kelsey’s Wedding

Ronnie and Kelsey’s wedding day fell on one of the most lovely days of the year here in Austin. Between the gorgeous weather and their beautiful details, this was one of the most incredible weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. I could go on and on about all of Kelsey’s creative ideas and attention to detail, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking this time. Suffice it to say, it was stunning – and the beauty of it all just matched the beauty of the union that was made that day. Kelsey and Ronnie are simply perfect together. We’ve had time to grow in knowing them and their families more intimately than we normally get to with our clients, so their wedding day felt more like a family reunion for us than work!:)We love them so much and had such a great time capturing their day for them!
VENUE: Mercury Hall

I told you these details were incredible! I guess I don’t need to tell you how much I loved their colors.:)
Beautiful flowers (SERIOUSLY beautiful!) by Firefly Floral Design.

They had a FUN dance party, thanks in large part to the fabulous DJ styling of Look No Further Entertainment!

Ronnie and Kelsey’s wedding day has finally arrived and Stan and I could not feel more excited about shooting their glorious day. The sun is shining and the weather is amazing . . . both of which make me feel like today was meant to be – for them – perfect. They’ve weathered an incredible storm this year and I can’t help but feel that this gorgeous day is God’s promise that there is joy and hope and LOVE on the other end of life’s biggest challenges. Love you, K&R.

Matt and Sarah’s Wedding

Stan and I had not met Sarah and Matt until we arrived on their wedding day. I had spoken and emailed with Sarah so much that I sort of felt like I knew her and half expected to recognize her when I saw her on her wedding day. I definitely did not! In fact, Sarah was so strikingly unique and beautiful that she really took my breath away when I first saw her. It might have something to do with the fact that her GORGEOUS red hair very much resembles that of the most handsome little man I’ve ever seen, but who knows?:)While I won’t say that Matt took my breath away (only Stanbo can do that!:)), I will say that he’s so adorable and kind and makes a perfect match for Sarah! Stan and I truly enjoyed our entire day with these guys and were so blessed to get to photograph all the fun that took place!

Reception: The Taylor Mansion
