Stylish Dobbin Wedding from Luke and Cat Photography

POSTED IN Houston, Real Weddings

Are you guys ready for this next stylish Dobbin wedding!  Held at the incomparable Olde Dobbin Station, this wedding oozes sweet romance!  I just love all of the tradition that the bride incorporated in the wedding.  From the handkerchiefs stitched into the chuppah to carrying her grandmother’s rosary, it’s so nice when couples can honor their heritages, cultures, and loved ones on such a special day.  Luke and Cat of Luke & Cat Photography were the lucky ones to capture this gorgeous affair (as they have done so many times before).  There’s even more stunning images in the gallery.

From the bride…We definitely wanted religion to play a huge role in our wedding even though we decided not to get married in a church.  Since I come from a Jewish/Catholic family I wanted to incorporate traditions from each religion into our ceremony and reception.  My mom collected vintage handkerchiefs from family members and hand stitched them together forming the chuppah that we said our vows underneath.  Later we moved it to the reception, where it became the backdrop for our wedding cakes.  I also chose to carry my grandmother’s rosary with me, as my something borrowed.  Since we had a winter wedding, we thought it would be fun to have a s’mores bar for our guests to enjoy after dinner.  One of our favorite things about the reception may have been the Whataburger taquitos at the end of the night! I’m sure if you asked any Texan what their favorite thing to do after a night out is, most of them would say getting breakfast at Whataburger.  Overall we wanted our guests to have fun at a ceremony that represented us and our personalities!

Fun Outdoor Austin Wedding by Caroline + Ben

POSTED IN Austin, Real Weddings

I love it when I get a wedding in my inbox and it looks like everyone had the time of their lives.  This fun outdoor Austin wedding screams “party” and I am absolutely here for it.  Weddings are like people–each one has a different personality.  And I love it when a couple has a wedding that truly reflects their individual personalities.  Your guests should leave your wedding feeling like it was a true representation of your life and love.  And if you can achieve that, no matter what actually happens on the big day, you can say you had a great wedding.  But no couple can do it alone.  This couple had team of talented vendors to help them pull off this great party.  Shelley Gay of Leave the Details to Me coordinated every detail to perfection.  Caroline and Ben of Caroline + Ben Photography did what they do best and captured so many authentic and classic images, I am at loss for words to describe them.  There’s even more to devour in the gallery.

From Shelly Taylor PhotographyBrittany and PJ wanted a distinctive engagement session in the cozy village of Salado, Texas which is a picture perfect location. After a proposal in snowy Central Park, NYC, they came home for the photo session. They knew their summer garden wedding would be elegant and formal, so they wanted their engagement session to be completely different!

From Tim Kyle PhotographyJordan and Jordyn (yes, you read that right!) planned the perfect engagement session to represent so many things that are important to them individually, and as a couple. We started in Downtown Round Rock and got some romantic and intimate shots. Then, we headed out to Camp Doublecreek to shake things up! Jordan, the groom-to-be, is a veterinarian and Jordyn, the bride-to-be, spent her summers at Camp Doublecreek, so they combined their love for animals and the camp to add a very special touch to their images. These two included their dog, Gracie, and a few other special camp residents to make their engagement pictures one-of-a-kind! I cannot wait for September, when the future Mr. and Mrs. Kautz will be getting married at Mercury Hall. Stay tuned then for more pictures from this gorgeous couple on their big day!
