Pearl White Traditional Five Stacked Wedding Cake

This five stacked masterpiece is next on our DIY Wedding Cakes list. It was designed and baked by the grooms cousin.  Every detail from each tier design, the flowers handmade with icing, golden pearl accents, to the a beautifully selected pink roses separating the tiers really brought this decedent cake together.

Antique White Three Layered Traditional Cake

DIY wedding cakes don’t have to be over the top to be a statement piece.  This DIY cake looks exquisite and tasted just as good.  Every detail came together using real white rose accents and outlined with edible sugar pearls.  It’s so simple, yet elegant.

 Multi Tiered Flower Traditional Wedding Cake

This family member collaborated with Jenny’s Flowers, and did an exceptional job with this DIY Wedding Cake.  Using the boutiques to separate the four levels created this towering work of art.  The choice of flowers, with their bold colors brings everything together wonderfully.

Matt and Allisons DIY Hill Country Wedding at Pecan Springs Ranch

Matt and Allison come to us via our shared time with Rogue Running. We have photographed them running in freezing cold hail, and on sunny hillsides sprinting through Austin. After watching their spark develop we were excited to be called upon to photograph the full flame of their DIY hill country wedding at the beautiful Pecan Springs Ranch.

A Hill Country Wedding at Pecan Springs Ranch

Our first time at Pecan Springs Ranch. The property is beautiful and there are many different vignettes and scenes the ranch offers. From lake side sunsets to the wildflower fields and historic barns and buildings in between, it was truly a pleasure to photograph.

Allison’s family really came together on the DIY wedding decorations to decorate the reception room. The groom’s cake had the guests doing strange dog barking noises (Georgia Bulldogs apparently). Allison’s side called out a more traditional Hook’em chant.

The highlight of the evening for us the photographers was the spectacular sunset that came out for a brief moment. We hard charged the newlyweds out into the field to get an epic wedding photo that I hope will hang in their home soon.

Thanks to the newlyweds for hosting us with grace and kindness. We are excited for your speedy adventures in love to come.

Shay and Jason – DIY New Braunfels Wedding

Jason and Shay’s DIY New Braunfels wedding was a down home family party. The wedding and reception were at Canyon Lake Cabins. The families made all the DIY decorations, including the cake and deserts. Their outdoor ceremony was held overlooking Canyon lake. The weather was picture perfect. We’ve been looking forward to their wedding for a while. You may remember them from their Inks Lake Adventure Engagement and Shay’s crazy giraffe bridal session.

An Award Winning Wedding Cake

Lillys Cake Bakery made this naked wedding cake that is as stunning as the Bride. The gold metallic foil give the perfect “WOW” Factor!  And we love this Gilded Grooms Cake, with the white ruffled icing.

The repeated guilt and naked wedding cakes tied every thing together. The wedding cake balls and individual wedding tiramisu cups are a great easy serving option. Lilly’s Cake Bakery was recently featured on The Food Network competing on the show Cake Wars. We can see (and smell and taste – you are missing out) why she won.

Nancy and Pepe – Tenroc Ranch Wedding Trailer

Nancy and Jose’s day started at the beautiful St. Stephen Catholic Church in Salado, TX with a traditional catholic wedding mass.  Things proceeded quickly to an all-out celebration in their Tenroc Ranch wedding video.  We tried something a little special as a finale to their trailer. They cuddled under a milky way time lapse (it really happened).

The Wedding Day Team

Posh Events and Jenny’s Florals were responsible for making the event custom tailored for Nancy and Jose’s style, and the event hall looked beautiful. The couples families catered the event themselves. A live band added the sound track.

Check out their Tenroc Ranch Wedding Photos too to see more.

Jacob and Katie Sunset Wedding at Antebellum Oaks

Jacob and Katie’s Antebellum Oaks wedding was special in a hilarious way. The lead photo says it all… It isn’t surprising given the fun we had during their engagement session. Jacob loves being silly and Katie has the patience of a kindhearted saint. That combination produces laughs and ear to ear grins in everyone around them.

Jacob and Katie’s wedding was under the huge oak trees at Antebellum Oaks. We got there early and hung out with the couple as they decorated and got ready.

Jessica and Mark picked the perfect venue for their Driftwood wedding. An Irish lass married an Irish boy and they had a good old Texas style party. Jessica and Mark wanted to show all their out of town friends and guests a little Austin fun. After the reception finished, the party moved to 6th street for an after party.

Hallie and Jonathan – Green Family Camp Wedding

A Waco DIY Wedding

Blue Bonnet First Look - Waco DIY Wedding - Temple Camp Wedding - Hallie and Jonathan - Green Family Camp - Blue Bonnet Wedding

Hallie and Jonathan’s Waco DIY wedding could not have been more beautiful. Their friends and family traveled from across the country to the Greene Family Camp, which has been in Jonathan’s family for over 20 years. It was a day of celebration as well as a trip down memory lane; many of the guests had fun stories of visiting the camp as kids. Their 3-day celebration kicked off with a BBQ and campfire where we found some great moments to capture their carefree personalities.

Friday started with a wild flower engagement session near the lake, a BBQ and smores at a campfire. The rain didn’t stop the first look in the iconic Texas bluebonnets and a ceremony in the woods. The reception turned into an energetic celebration.

Wild Flower Engagement Photos

Jonathan and Hallie live out of town so we didn’t get a chance to do actual engagements. With everyone staying at camp before the wedding we were able to go out to the camp lake. It is wildflower season in Texas which is never a bad thing. As the evening continued, Jonathan and Hallie stepped out of with us for some sunset photos before their BBQ and Smores party. We finished the night with a star trail engagement photos.

Austin Giraffe Bridal Portrait - Austin Wedding Photographer

Shay’s Giraffe Bridal Portraits in Uvalde

We love a crazy idea. When Shay asked if we would go to Uvalde to make some epic bridal portraits, we said yes. I’m not a big fan of the word “epic”, but I think it is appropriate in this case. We started off searching the ranch for the giraffes with my truck. We didn’t have to look for long. One of the giraffe’s and her calf were hanging out near the front of the property among the mesquite trees.

If you ever need to make friends with a giraffe, just bring a bag of carrots, or maybe a bridal bouquet. She seemed equally interested in eating either.

Jessica & Mark: Ranch Austin Wedding Teaser Video

Jessica’s and Mark’s Ranch Austin wedding video teaser is up! Ranch Austin is a great outdoor wedding venue, and it made the perfect setting for Jessica’s and Mark’s Driftwood wedding. An Irish lass married an Irish boy and they have a good old Texas style party. There was even a Imperial March “bow down to the bride” dance during the reception. We finished the night off with Jessica and Mark and their friends on 6th street for a little after party.

Epic Frist Look Portrait, Wedding, Memory Lane, Dripping Springs, Memory Lane Wedding

Stephanie and Daniel got married on a uncharacteristically warm (like high 80s) November day at the lovely Memory Lane Event Center in Dripping Springs, Texas. After a blue sky first look and ceremony the reception kicked off with a treat. They had a live band: Plush Party Band with some sing along (turns out Daniel can sing) and crowd surfing. Of course, if you don’t like the weather in Texas, just wait a few minutes. By their sparkler exit, the temp had dropped into the 40s which made for a cozy exit.

You may remember Daniel and Stephanie from their Kyle Texas Engagement.
