Michelle & Albert | Houston Engagement Photos

Houston, my beautiful hometown, has had some ups and downs recently; from the devastating hurricane to the Astros’ World Series win, the lows have been low but the highs have been stratospheric. Let’s put a tally in the “awesome” column for Michelle and Albert’s wedding, which will be happening this fall at Nouveau Art Bar!

I absolutely loved hanging out with these two in and around downtown Houston. I missed that iconic skyline. I’m so excited to see these two gorgeous people getting married in a few months!

Holly & Matt | Intimate Home Wedding | Austin

new years eve wedding in austin

New Year’s Eve dawned cold in Austin — unusually cold, like freezing cold. Winter in Texas is a toss-up; the week before was sweater-weather only. But in twenty-seven degrees, Holly and Matt bundled up a little extra (the bride added a fur stole over her wedding dress, handmade by her mother) and set off for the church to get married.

It was an intimate wedding; the ceremony took place at St. Austin’s near the UT campus, after the final Mass of 2017. Some of my favorite photos happened in between family formals and the actual ceremony, when everyone in the wedding party sat and visited before the official wedding festivities took place. After a joyful kiss, the couple recessed down the aisle, and the whole group went back to Holly and Matt’s house for dinner, party hats, and 2018 sunglasses. It was so cold it snowed — unheard of! — but everyone danced under heat lamps anyway. Congratulations, Holly and Matt! It was a great way to ring in the new year.

Cassy & Matt | The Milestone Wedding | Georgetown

I think every child who has had a princess-bride daydream would have gawked in awe at Cassy and Matt’s wedding day. Cassy’s lace gown was fitted perfectly and her cathedral-length veil floated behind her ethereally. Centerpieces were placed on sequins, and jewels and baubles decorated from head to toe — well, from chandeliers to shoes. This wedding was definitely a Texas dream too: the groom in cowboy boots, a perfect outdoor ceremony in December, a state-shaped cake with the Longhorns on it.

I’ve known both Cassy and Matt for years — I married into Cassy’s family after all — and this wedding was gorgeous from start to finish. Be sure to scroll down to see all the vendors involved in this beautiful wedding!
