Avery & Chris | Ceres Park Ranch Wedding

ceres park ranch wedding

If ever there is a time to have a wedding with a three-hour-long cocktail hour, make it a wedding at Ceres Park Ranch. The recently constructed venue is behind the iconic Jester King Brewery, so after Avery and Chris shared their first kiss and hugged well-wishers who had come from all over the country to attend their wedding, everyone wandered over the brewery to grab refreshments and chill. It was a gorgeous and crisp November day — perfect temperature in the sun, a little goosebumpy after dark — and after the sky turned violet everyone returned to the ranch house for BBQ, speeches, and dancing.

It was a beautiful day. Congratulations again to Avery and Chris.

Cassie & David | Hye Meadow Winery Wedding

It was late October, the weekend before Halloween, and although the meadow behind Hye Winery didn’t look like autumn, with long waving blades of grass, it was a bit chilly. The sun warmed us while a cool breeze made goosebumps rise on our arms when we stood in the shade.

Cassie and I have been friends for a while — we have shot side-by-side at numerous weddings together — and she told me she hired me because, above all else, she is most comfortable with me. “It’ll be like a hangout instead of a production,” she’d said, and I couldn’t think of a better compliment, that she trusted me and my vibe (and also my work), enough to have me there on her wedding day. (Her entire team of vendors were people she has worked with over the years and loved and trusted, so be sure to scroll down to the bottom to see everyone who helped make this event a success.)

And let me say this — I’ve known Cassie for years, and this is the happiest I’ve ever seen her. Absolutely blissed out, grinning a giant smile, laughing and hugging and just being so incredibly merry. David, you are an amazing person and I’m so glad that you both found such happiness. I just wanna hug you two all over again.

Andrea & Wes | Wedding at Chapel & Palm Door

The first thing that caught his attention, Wes told me, was that Andrea spoke beautifully. He saw her at a poetry reading in Chicago and liked her words. Then he noticed she had beautiful legs, too, so he decided to speak to her. The rest is history. Andrea and Wes were married at dusk at Chapel Dulcinea overlooking the Hill Country (and oh my goodness, did the light. come. through). Their smallish group reconvened after the ceremony at Palm Door on Sabine, noshing on delicious food prepared by Pink Avocado, snacking on cake made by Sweet Treets, and sipping craft cocktails while waiting in line to take grinning photos in Le Photobooth. I absolutely loved this wedding, this totally chill couple, and their happy happy love.
