Trevor & Davis | Bryne-Reed House Wedding

Ten years to the day of their first date, Trevor and Davis got married. Teary friends and smiling family, including their supportive church family, watched as the two grasped hands and promised each other forever. The mood in the Bryne-Reed House in downtown Austin was jubilant; cars passing by honked their congratulations while we shot portraits, and after dinner and cake, everyone fired up the karaoke machine. Elvis and Dolly Parton made guest appearances :)

I’m so happy for you two!

Alyssa & Randy | Milltown Historic District Wedding

milltown new braunfels wedding

Rushing water, a meringue sunset. Alyssa and Randy, two Bay area residents who came back to the Lone Star State for their wedding, had a party that you can’t find anywhere else: BBQ, mariachi band, an outdoor ceremony in October that was comfortably warm, a true Texas sunset with all the creams, reds, purples, and oranges. After exchanging vows by the Guadalupe river, the two shared a sweet first kiss and partied with friends and family. Fancy popcorn, brisket from Salt Lick, a Sugar Mama’s cake with a fondant version of Randy riding a bobcat made by Sideserf Cake Studio, and plenty of dancing rounded out this beautiful night.

I’m so happy that we got to know each other. Be sure to scroll down for a list of vendors who made this day possible. If you are friends or family of Alyssa and Randy, you can view their gallery and purchase prints here.
