Camp Lucy | Sacred Oaks Wedding

It’s always super exciting to shoot at new places, so when Cassie Rose Photography asked me to assist her at this Camp Lucy wedding, I was ecstatic. Camp Lucy has two different, separate venues for weddings: the original Ian’s Chapel, and the newer Sacred Oaks. This beautiful two-bride wedding was on the Sacred Oaks side, and goodness, it was gorgeous.

Amusingly, I discovered on the day of the wedding that I knew one of the brides — we went to middle school together! I love fun coincidences. I was touched that I was able to see her marry the love of her life :)

Be sure to check out Cassie’s blog post too — there are way more photos there!

Tara & Aaron | Chapel Dulcinea Elopement

“Wow… who is that?” Aaron asked his new roommate as he was moving into his apartment in Houston. He had seen a beautiful woman crossing the yard and was immediately captivated. That’s when Jared told him about Tara, one of his neighbors, a vivacious (not to mention beautiful) cosmetologist.

That was three years ago; the two started dating soon after and from then on were inseparable. When they finally decided to get married, Tara and Aaron drove up to Austin from Houston on a little vacation and got married with only four other guests in attendance; Tara’s little girl as flower girl as Jared serenaded them on the guitar.

Just a few from their tiny, tiny wedding…

Rebecca & Daniel | Palm Door on Sabine Wedding

During Rebecca and Daniel’s wedding ceremony, under the gold foliage and enveloping chuppah, their rabbi said, “As you know, Rebecca and Daniel didn’t need to have this wedding. They were married in New York. But this community — you who are their family, you who are their friends — are so important to them. I’m so glad that you could be here to celebrate with them.”

The couple held their wedding here, a midpoint for family to congregate between Monterrey and New York, and Rebecca’s hometown. They called this their “boda numero dos” and hosted one of the craziest parties I’ve seen so far. A Jew-ish ceremony, with Rebecca circling Daniel, then Daniel circling Rebecca; a beautiful ketubah; Mexican snacks brought out after midnight by Daniel’s family; a wedding jumpsuit (no, seriously); Grupo Fantasma rocking the night away; Pink Avocado serving platters of steak, and Bird Dog Wedding overseeing it all… We partied until 3am and sent the couple off down the street amidst sparklers and downtown Austin revelers who hollered their congratulations.

It’s not a monster post, but it’s pretty close. Here are a few of my favorites from Rebecca and Daniel’s boda numero dos.
