Sarah & Jordan | Palm Door on Sabine Wedding

palm door wedding austin

Two-piece bridal gown. Baby blue suit. Hand-stitched needlepoint centerpiece numbers. English Christmas “crackers” full of paper crowns and temporary tattoos. Sarah and Jordan celebrated their wedding with a laid-back and joyful attitude in downtown Austin at Palm Door on Sabine.

I loved celebrating their love with them. It was just the warm cozy feeling I needed in mid-November, to know that people were still going to love, going to be loud about their joy, going to smile and celebrate the beautiful things that need celebrating. As we go into 2017 (this being the last blog post of the year), I wish you all joy and strength and hope — though maybe not necessarily in that exact order.

Sarah & Kyle | River Oaks Garden Club Wedding

houston river oaks wedding

It was the first weekend in November; a mild, gorgeous day on which Sarah and Kyle tied the knot. In step with the garden theme at the River Oaks Garden Club, Sarah wore flowered heels by Louise et Cie. After a ceremony where the sun dipped in and out behind clouds, revelers drank cocktails on the expansive porch and grounds. During dinner, guests wondered at the gorgeous floral arrangements that the bride herself had DIY’d, then followed the couple outdoors for a night of dancing.

A gorgeous night, capped off by a shower of petals as the couple spirited away to an afterparty! Be sure to view and order prints here.

Jordan & Nathan | Houston Engagement Session

It was an absolute pleasure meeting Jordan and Nathan; they found me through Offbeat Bride, which means that they were totally down to do all the weird stuff I asked them to do. In fact, in true “awesome, my people find me” fashion, Jordan and I bonded over lipstick, Modcloth, and even our favorite dry shampoo brand.

In the end, we created one of my favorite shots from an engagement session (I’ll let you guess which one it is). These two are getting married at Karbach Brewery next year and I’m so excited!
