Josh and Brittany had a Saint Patrick’s Day wedding at Hyde Park Presbyterian Church with a reception at the UT Alumni Center. It was a traditional affair with lots of family and friends. They even had green beer at their UT Alumni Center wedding reception.
Not a First Look
Josh and Brittany wanted to stick to the tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding on their wedding day. They got creative with the interpretation though and had a short moment together before things kicked off. Josh just had to wear a blindfold.
Hyde Park Presbyterian Church Wedding Ceremony
Once upon a time Austin was a small town on the edge of the hill country. There were lots of small country churches like Hyde Park Presbyterian. Those that have survived have been surrounded and embedded in Austin. Hyde Park was built before 1900. It’s been around a long time. It’s a great place to start a life together.
Hyde Park is a small church and the inside is simple, with white walls and a simple alter. Everything is focused on the service.
Waller Creek Bridge
Waller Creek runs just behind the UT Alumni Center and there is a cool old limestone pedestrian bridge that crosses it. We headed down under the bridge during the UT Alumni Center wedding for quick bride and groom portraits before their reception.
With recent rain there was some water standing in the creek. It’s always fun to play with reflections for bridal portraits and for portraits of the couple on their wedding day.
UT Alumni Center Wedding Reception
The main concourse of the UT Alumni Center provides a nice space for an event like this.
Some of our weddings are over the top, and others traditional. We love them all. An event like this with lots of good friends and family is a perfect way for the couple to start their new life together.
