Some history about their family home in Bastrop:

The home that stands today, named Ancient Oaks, was built in 1856/57. The original cabin was converted into a detached kitchen. Many family weddings and celebrations were held here throughout the years. The house was passed down through the generations, largely unchanged, until it was lost to the bank during the Great Depression.

It was kept in repair but never fully restored, limping along into its 150th year of existence with an uncertain future ahead. The bride’s great grandmother, bemoaned the loss of the home and wished for someone in the family to buy and restore the property. In 2004, the bride’s parents purchased the property from the banker’s descendants and completely restored the house and cemetery. The restoration includes some of the original furnishings and was decorated in accordance with descriptions from the memoirs of the family who had lived there.

Stonehouse Villa is a great venue for Texas sunsets because it is surrounded by fields and you can see the far horizon. One of my favorite photos from this wedding was the couple under giant tree canopies with the blushing sunset behind them. Veronique and Daniel made for a gorgeous couple, and their love was clearly shown and celebrated throughout the wedding day. I love her dress by Jenny Packham, my favorite UK designer, and the reception had a lively band. It was a great day!

During the wedding day of the couple, which was held at The Austin Club right next to the Texas Capitol, the city was hosting the Texas book festival. So the road to the club was closed, as a result, we could do bride/groom portraits in the street without worrying about cars. We got these shots during the “blue hour”, when the sun has set but there is still enough residual light so the sky is blue instead of black. I love how urban and downtown austin these look!

I love this wedding at Palazzo Lavaca, in downtown Austin. The bride didn’t like bouquets, so no one was holding them. Each woman has something different (the bride was wearing a corsage, some bridesmaids had flowers in their hair, or on an arm, and some with a corsage on the lapel). Each groomsmen has a different pocket square.

The bride doesn’t like wearing heels, so she provided flip-flops for any women who wanted to swap out their shoes during the evening.

They were married by their friend who had introduced them originally, and it was a standing up reception.

The party afterwards was fun and full of joyful raucous!

I adore Steven and Katie’s wedding at Hummingbird House, they were going for a garden anthropologie-esque wedding and I think they achieved it. She wore a lovely, ethereal dress, and the colors of the bridal party was seafoam green. Everyone had a lovely time during the reception and there was an energetic party.

As usual, the hummingbird hose was lovely, with it’s climbing vines and flowers everywhere. The grounds were meticulously kept and there were butterflies and birds singing their songs.
