A Waco DIY 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.

The Bluebonnet First Look

When you have a field of bluebonnets available for a first look, you use a field of bluebonnets! The flowers made a nice setting for some great first look moments.

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

The camp had a couple of temple spaces including this one in the forest. It made a perfect setting for Jonathan and Hallie’s outdoor wedding ceremony.

Jacob & Katie: Westridge Stables Spicewood Springs Engagement

We met Jacob and Katie through Jacob’s company Lone Star Wake Rentals. Jacob takes people out on the Austin area lakes to have a good time. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a better job fit. About half way through their engagement session I looked at Katie and said “I assume Jacob was always the class clown?” The answer was a resounding “yes!”

Needless to say, Katie and Jacob’s engagement session at Westridge Stables was a lot of fun. The property is huge and we spent the afternoon roaming around it looking for photos. We even made some creative use of our Polaris transport under the milky way..
