Kate & Brad | Blanton Museum Wedding

austin wedding photographer

What words could describe Kate and Brad’s amazing Blanton Museum celebration? Their friends and family wended through the blue main hall — a giant ombré’d installation piece called Stacked Waters — up the grand staircase and into the museum’s main gallery, a beautiful white space laid with a rectangles of colorful paintings. Kate, in a black-and-white Vera Wang gown, smiled down a black-and-white aisle into Brad’s sight. Simple and heartfelt vows, a long kiss, and they were back up the aisle, married and 100% happy.

From Kate’s impeccable style, to the gorgeous table laid with black, white, and gold dishes and stunning calla lily florals, to the croquembouche and Klimt wedding cake, this wedding was a class act from top to bottom, and I’m sharing just a small glimpse of the beauty on that day. Be sure to scroll down for a full list of vendors, who made this gorgeous day possible.

Jenni & Bryan | Springdale Farm

You may remember Jenni and Bryan from their pop-up wedding at Zilker Park! June was the original month for their wedding, but after they got hitched in March, they switched their awesome Springdale Farm wedding into their awesome Springdale Farm reception, so this post is goodness from their East Austin shindig. They sang show tunes, noshed cupcakes, and got rained on just a tiny bit — but this party was a lovely outpouring of love from their friends and family.

The Big Gay Wedding | Austin, TX

scotus gay marriage ruling

I write this post with a happy heart. On Friday, June 26, same-sex marriage became legal all over the United States, and the first same-sex marriage license in Austin was distributed at 10:30am. I was at the Travis County clerk’s office by noon, and cheered outside with a handful of supporters. (Surprisingly, I didn’t see one naysayer anywhere near the clerk’s office. The entire experience — from what is usually seen as a routine, bureaucratic task — was incredibly buoyant, to the point of ecstatic. People gave out hugs, flowers, and cupcakes donated from local businesses.)

On July 4th, a group of folks organized a giant wedding on the main lawn of the Texas Capitol downtown, and more than forty couples were married en masse. The energy was frenetic! A crowd of 300+ supporters held signs, raised cameras, blew bubbles; cried.

I wasn’t there in any “official” capacity; I was there as just another excited ally in the crowd, but I also snapped a few photos. Here are a handful from both that first historic day, and also the Big Gay Wedding on Independence Day.
