bride and groom cake topper

I met Emily at broadway dance class, and she’s one of the most creative person I know. She’s been costume mistress for Ballet Austin, and now she’s performing at Ester’s Follies in Austin. So it was definitely not surprising how creative her wedding was. She came up with a tree of ribbons. Each ribbon had vintage bells stitched on them, with escort cards that had fabric on it. Each table was assigned a particular fabric. In addition she had memory jars as centerpieces, full of keepsakes from her and Mike.

The wedding was at the Hummingbird House, which has special meaning for me. It’s where I got married, and we were their first couple. It was a bit surreal shooting her wedding because of that. I was in the bridal getting ready suite, and having flashbacks of me waiting in the same room, and getting ready to process out. I have such good memories of this venue, and highly recommend it!
