We talk about firsts when talking about weddings that we photograph. We believe that every wedding has something new to see and an unique “first”. Madison and Tom continue that belief in firsts for us. The first bride we have seen use her mother and sisters sorority pins as something borrowed attached to her bouquet. The first exit we have seen that instead of sparklers or lights utilized paper airplanes. Madison is also the first bride we thought was going to spontaneously combust with happiness as she said “I do” to her about to be husband Tom. Madison radiated her joy throughout the evening. Friends and family reflected the glow as a perfect Austin Sunday evening sunset descended upon the happy newlyweds.
Chateau Bellevue in Austin
A wedding is often like an impressionist painting. Daubs of color and brushstrokes that combine to form a fuzzy memory. Katie & Nick started the next chapter in their own masterpeice and the first words as brushstrokes that I think of are: Sweet, Fun and Just Right. The band Hot Sauce ATX had the crowd movin and groovin, the florals from STEMS set the ambience and the crowd gathered to watch Nick soak in the radiance that is Katie. Purple dresses and hook’ems from the bridesmaids swirl about during the reception. The pedicab exit was a first and elicited cheers from the bubble blowing exit crowd. Nick’s face when Katie came near, Katie’s laugh through the course of the evening. Vintage couches holding secret conversation in the coolness of the stone patio.
Those are the brush strokes I remember anyhow. Take a look through their pictures and see what stories they trigger.
