j lorraine ghost town wedding | jen and felipe | austin wedding photographer

This was definitely one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever been to. It was in a ghost town! I felt like a kid when I first arrived, and wanted to explore every inch. In fact, there was a wooden maze there, and I got lost in it, and was panicking (“Photographer trapped in ghost maze!”) but I finally retraced my steps out. The maze was where Jen and Felipe did their first look. Thankfully that went well and no one got trapped in there.

They had a vintage trailer that they had worked on, and a quilt making station instead of a guest book. Everything was very playful and sweet. It was clear that everyone love Jen and Felipe and that they were well-loved in return.
