Hallie and Jonathan – Green Family Camp Wedding

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.

Daniel and Stephanie: Memory Lane Event Center Wedding in Dripping Springs

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

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.

Jonathan and Lindsay: A DIY Vintage Prospect House Wedding in Dripping Springs

Jonathan and Lindsay - Prospect House - DIY Wedding - 061

I’ve known Jonathan for a long while through the swing dance scene and later met Lindsay the same way. I’ve often found them efficiently making things “just work” as a part of Austin’s booming dance scene. They are a couple that make a great team and are also really cute together.

Given how their engagement session went, I wasn’t surprised when their wedding was heaps of fun too. Lindsay and Jonathan applied their dance scene skills to their wedding and made it work flawlessly. They DIY’ed all their decorations to turn Prospect House into a setting that perfectly reflected their playful sense of style. Lindsay made hundreds of gorgeous paper flowers, cute place settings for each guest,  and a lot of nice small touches to help the guests enjoy the wedding.

Congratulations Jonathan and Lindsay!  Thanks for having us as your photographers.

Julie & Garrett: Hotel Alsace Wedding

CareBearFormalFinal-1Social

Care Bear Attack! Because really, what is scarier than Share Bear coming after the wedding party to rain down hugs and warmth. Garrett is a bit of prankster and wanted to have dinosaur’s or king kong chasing the bridal party. We had to raise his joke one more level and go full Ghostbuster style in photoshopping in the Care Bears.

Julie, Garrett and their families went over the top DIY on the decor for the wedding, even going as far as making polished wood stands for the floral vases. Friends and family came and pitched in to help setup and break down the venue as fast as any wedding we have seen. Warmed our heart to see the social fabric wrapped so tight around Julie & Garrett.

Thanks to the Hotel Alsace for hosting us on a great fall Saturday.
