Damian and Claire’s Wedding

This one was a BLAST! Damian and Claire were married last month (yes, it’s June 3rd, so I can say last month!) at the Stephen F. Austin Intercontinental Hotel in a lovely ceremony followed by one of the craziest reception dance parties of all time! We had so much fun with them and we really enjoyed being a part of their day! Huge thanks go out to Mrs. Shannon Cunningham, Damian’s sister-in-law and one of Austin’s most fab photographers, for sending Claire and Damian our way. We loved working with you all! ๐Ÿ™‚

Shannon’s sweet little angel was one of the flower girls and yes, she DOES smile like this every time the camera is on her . . . precious!!

Shannon and Connor . . . . awwww ๐Ÿ™‚ . . .

I LOVE CAKE BALLS!!!! Oh my goodness!

The Cunningham family is Irish (go figure, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ ), so there were sweet little Irish touches here and there, like the shamrock decor on the cake ‘o cake balls!

Bret was the most fun Best Man EVER because he had so much fabulous dirt on Damian that he wasn’t afraid to share! HILARIOUS!!

Damian lost a bet to this Crimson Tide fan, so he got to get up at the wedding and give a speech about how much better Alabama’s football team is than Texas’. BOO!!

Ian and Heidi’s Wedding

What a beautiful day. I think that Ian and Heidi were lucky to slip their wedding day into the last couple of pretty weather days here in Texas, folks! It is officially summer – I don’t care what the calendar says . . . it’s HOT! ๐Ÿ™‚ But you know what? If anybody deserved bright blue skies and perfect temperatures, it’s these two. Since the moment I met them, I just adored them. We first met at Tom and Ashley’s wedding (holler atcha, Bubas!) and even then, before Heidi and Ian were engaged, I knew with all my heart that they would get married and we would be their wedding photographers. Heidi and Ian – thank you guys for allowing us the joy of capturing you on your wedding day! It was SO much fun and we hope you love your pictures!

Their wedding and reception took place at the GORGEOUS Terrace Club. We LOVE shooting there for so many reasons, but one big one being that Hunter and her crew are just a breeze to work with. What a great place!

Heidi is such a sweetheart! She got so excited when she found out that the earrings Ian surprised her with were none other than an original Catherine Nicole creation! And let me just say she rocked the heck out of those stunning earrings!

First Look – love, love, loooooove!

I want to shrink their wedding party, tie them up with a bow, and carry them all around in my pocket. They were SO. MUCH. FUN!

This makes me excited that my little baby is going to one day turn into a little boy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sweetness.

Haha! Don’t leave, Ian! These guys were great!

I want to re-do my wedding . . . . and have yellow flowers. Seriously. Nobody ever does them and I LOVE them!

The wind nearly whipped Heidi’s veil right off her head, but boy did it make for a cute pic!

Sunset goodness. The sunset = not the best ever, but so-so. Heidi and Ian = the BEST.

Do you love good food as much as I do?!

I can’t stop coming back to this picture . . . I think it may be my favorite.

Oh my . . . cake balls! At one point during the reception, I felt the need to approach Heid and say to her “Heidi, I want you to know that if you wanted me to be a professional and to do my job, you shouldn’t have had cake balls at your wedding.” She laughed her butt off . . . but I was serious. ๐Ÿ™‚

How fun is this cake?! Ian is a cyclist, so they had this amazing groom’s cake that might have been the most original groom’s cake I’ve ever seen! Loved it!

Elizabeth Cross, we’re going to have a sister picture like this at your wedding . . . love it . . .

Congratulations, Heidi and Ian. Wishing a beautiful marriage for two beautiful people.

Rob and Nicole’s Wedding

I keep starting and then stopping this blog post. I keep trying to put into words how much I adore Nicole, how perfect she and Rob are for each other, how much we loved shooting their wedding, and how much I love these pictures, but I just keep getting all messed up trying to convey all of it. Instead of writing (which I love, but takes me a VERY long time), I’m going to stick with my strength, which is telling a story in pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy.

Nicole’s momma and I became good friends through the wedding-planning process. She is wonderful and you’ll see her a LOT in these pictures because . . . well, I love her and it’s my blog, so that’s what I want to do! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha!

How gorgeous are these girls? That’s Nicole’s twin sister on your left.

Dang, Rob! Seriously? You’re SO handsome!

Pic on the right taken just moments before Nicole realized she was about to walk down the isle without her flowers. Notice the empty left hand. ๐Ÿ™‚ Whoops!

Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church is a beautiful spot for a ceremony and we were happy to be back!

Off to the reception at The Austin Club, which is one of our top favorite places to shoot!

Nicole is a dear friend of mine from college (at UT) and she, along with all these other adorable girls, was a Texas Angel. And here they are posing with a very special former Longhorn football player. ๐Ÿ™‚ Awesome!

We went and took a bunch of fabulous pics at the capitol right after the reception. This is my salute to all of you “jumping picture” photographers. ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE THIS SHOT because it’s just so ridiculous and silly!

Congrats, Nicole and Rob – love you guys!
