Kristi and Oscar came to us through Lindsay with In Her Shooes Coordination, one of our very favorite weddings coordinators that we work with in Austin. Kristi was going for a rustic glam wedding to reflect her love of all things glamorous and Oscar’s love of the country. Gabriel Springs in Georgetown turned out to be the perfect venue for just such a wedding! Kristi looked absolutely amazing in her gorgeous gown with a beaded bodice and tulle train. But the real stars of the show were her incredible, blinged out Louboutins. Wow, what a pair of shoes! Happy to spread the bling around, Kristi chose very unique dresses for her bridesmaids, who looked quite classy in their black satin gowns with high-low hemlines and sparkly sashes. The floral decor from Brenda Abbott Floral design was just exquisite from the chandeliers at the wedding ceremony to the table centerpieces dripping with crystals. Not to be outdone, Simon Lee Bakery did an fabulous job bringing Kristi’s vision to life with this stunningly elegant bride’s cake. What we enjoyed most about this wedding was the carefree and happy attitude everyone had. The couple was so excited to get married, and all their friends and family were so happy to celebrate with them. There were quite a lot of antics on the dance floor, but the best part was the bride and groom’s son playing the guitar and singing and putting on quite the show. You can tell what a proud mom Kristi is! We wish Kristi and Oscar many years of happily wedded bliss!
Amanda and Andy are getting married at Saint Mary Cathedral. They found us through their wedding reception venue, the Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs Headquarters mansion, which we think is one of the most beautiful places to have a wedding in Austin. For their engagement portrait session, they decided to go to the Texas State Capitol grounds in the heart of downtown Austin. The Capitol grounds really are a great location for engagement portraits with beautifully maintained grounds and unique architecture, not to mention easy parking most of the time. Since we weren’t going to a second location, Amanda and Andy had time for three outfits in their engagement session. We stayed a bit after dark to get these fabulous and dramatic night time shots at the end of our session. We look forward to their wedding next June!
