Jenni & Bryan | Intimate Wedding at Zilker Park

Jenni and Bryan were planning a June wedding, but became overwhelmed with the entire “big wedding” process. Instead of one big shindig, they decided to have a small pop-up wedding in Zilker Park in March, to be followed by a more laid-back reception on their original June date.

Zilker was the perfect setting for their little wedding; on a pretty weekend afternoon, they marked their spot with a ton of yellow and grey balloons, strapped a GoPro to one of their two pups, and exchanged vows in the middle of flying Frisbees and fetching dogs. Bryan, who proposed with a blue French horn à la How I Met Your Mother, and Jenni, who was escorted by her parents (her father in a top hat) celebrated with 30 of their favorite people, then dined at El Chile with Hey Cupcake for dessert.

I’m still very excited about their reception this summer, but for now, here is Part 1 of Jenni and Bryan’s very Austin Zilker Park wedding.

Claire & Melissa | Inn at Wild Rose Hall Wedding

Melissa and Claire’s wedding was a beautiful celebration in the chilly outdoors of early March, with curlicues of dark greenery accenting the grounds at the Inn at Wild Rose Hall. The entire place was strewn with twinkle lights, which gave the overcast day an extra twilight glow. Though the temperatures dipped below 50 — unusual for this time of year in Texas — Claire and Melissa’s guests were warmed with homemade apple dapple cakes, by shaking their feet with Johnny Bravvo‘s tunes, and by the happy sense of community all around. This was an extraordinarily cheerful wedding, and I’m so glad it was the first one for me to shoot in 2015 — I think the year started off amazingly.

Deb & Zac | Austin Engagement Session

We picked over puddles and bundles of weeds, Deb’s curls floating behind her. Deb and Zac exclaimed over adorable dogs splashing in the Greenbelt, and laughed about how amazing the 70-degree weather was; they’d flown in from D.C., which was currently under ice.

These two were absolutely adorable and wanted a very “Austin” engagement session. We visited the Austin mural, we hung out at the South 1st Trailer Park & Eatery with some cake balls, and hiked the Greenbelt. I’m so excited about their wedding this October. Some of my favorites from their session…
