Courtyard Corpus Christi Wedding by Lauren Weeks

POSTED IN Corpus Christi, Real Weddings

This next courtyard Corpus Christi wedding is the epitome of sweet. While the couple is the center of attention, the kids featured in wedding steal the show! Their little tuxes and super cute signs infuse so much tenderness into this family affair. Don’t be afraid to add a little lightness and tenderness to your nuptials. Cute signs or little jokes during the ceremony really make for a memorable event.  It is clear to see from the photographs that the bride and groom were so happy to commit their lives to one another. Lauren Weeks did an amazing job capturing their love. The gallery has even more sweetness to absorb.

From Lauren Weeks PhotographyI love photographing weddings that reaffirm that you will never stop photographing weddings. This was one of those wedding for a few different reasons. First, the couple couldn’t take their eyes off each other or stop smiling at each other the whole night. During the toast, the brother of the groom said that when they met Rachel, they knew that this relationship was something special – it’s so true and everyone was excited to share this day with them. Second, I love seeing couples come together to form a blended family. It’s not easy and it’s not always pretty, but you could see that the kids loved their parents and respected the person their parent was marrying. Next, the venue, The Courtyard at Gaslight Square, made for a very romantic atmosphere. Lights wrapped around trees and a chandelier hanging from a tree twinkled throughout the evening. Guests ate and danced the whole night – and the photo booth was a hit all night long. Lastly, who doesn’t love ending the night with a beautiful sparkler sendoff. The shot of the groom dipping his bride beneath the sparklers makes my heart swoon!

From Vintage IndulgenceTexas born and raised, these twins are headed for the top of the style chart. Being born just a few moments apart has created a bond envied by all. They took completely different paths in life, one is a teacher and the other is in fashion as a hair and make up artist for weddings. Although their journeys are different in life, they are always connected and spend a lot of time together. So much to everyone’s surprise, these two are planning their weddings together. BOTH are engaged to be married, which inspired this styled shoot from vendors who adore them. I mean, how many twins are lucky enough to find love at the same time and get to plan their weddings together? Lauren J. Photography, Jade Magnolia and Vintage Indulgence created the perfect southern storm of style. Lauren knew of the most amazing hidden spot, full of the perfect light, to showcase these southern girls underneath the gorgeous Spanish moss, that adorns so many of our trees in the South. The beautiful flowy gowns from Saint Isabel Bridal, soft natural make up by SunKissed and Made Up, and just the right amount of a sweet southern breeze made the light flowy fabrics of the gowns cause the twins to look like angels. The custom dyed ribbons from ShyMyrtle added a pop of color to the light aromatic feel of the furniture rental selection accompanied by the handwritten touches created by the talented Cindy Palmer.

Traditional Austin Wedding by Amanda Pomilla Photography

POSTED IN Austin, Real Weddings

It doesn’t get more classic than this traditional Austin wedding.  The celebration started off at a stunning cathedral complete with nuns in traditional habits. After vows were exchanged, it was time to turn the party up a notch. The bride removed her gorgeous lace sleeves from her dress and the affair continued at the TFWC Mansion in Austin. The couple played up the periwinkle blue color that covered the walls of the mansion by incorporating it into their reception decor. A word to the wise, brides–don’t fight the decor of the space, accept it and expand upon it. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. Amanda Pomilla was the lucky photographer who was able to capture this couple’s love. Check out even more gorgeous images in the gallery.

From Amanda Pomilla PhotographyCasey and Steve had an elegant day starting with the cathedral wedding and long lace sleeves on her beautiful gown. They rode a party bus on over to the Women’s Mansion where the light streamed in on gorgeous white centerpieces. They used the dusty blue accents of the mansion in their personalized decor and incorporated pops of yellow to brighten things up! Everything was emotional from the bride crying during her sister’s toast to EMS showing up to help her grandmother to the groomsman in a cape flipping for the garter!
