A lot of our recent wedding blogs have involved old running friends of mine. Mike is a long time friend from my days as a corporate drone and we trained and ran the 2006 San Diego marathon together. When Mike and Kathie decided to get married we were honored to be their wedding photographers. They had a Palm Door on Sixth wedding ceremony and reception, but before that, lets talk about wildflowers.
Spring Flowers at McKinney Falls
Mike and Kathie live out of town but had their wedding here because this is where most of their friends and family live. We didn’t get to do an engagement shoot, but we did set aside the day before the wedding for some fun pictures in the wild flowers at McKinney Falls.
Luckily the Texas wild flowers were still going strong in April. Their matching pink outfits, went perfectly with the yellow flowers and green of Texas in the spring time.
Flowers for Days
Kathie loves flowers. They were an important part of the wedding for her. We always try to highlight the things that are important to the couple. The Palm Door on Sixth wedding hall was decked out in so many beautiful bouquets it’s hard to know where to start. Their focal point was a large flower chandelier. Valerie Wolf of Davy Gray did and amazing job with all the flowers.
The Palm Door on Sixth Wedding Ceremony
Kathie and Mike had their Palm Door on Sixth wedding ceremony in the courtyard surrounded by flowers and under a clear blue Austin sky.
Palm Door Wedding Reception
Kathie’s love of flowers extended to edible flowers included with the wedding cake, cupcakes and drinks. The place settings even included fern leaf accents.
With the formal part of the day over with, the party started. One of our favorite DJs, DJ Gatsby was there keeping the party going all evening.
Of course at, Kathie and Mike had to exit their Palm Door on Sixth wedding in a shower of flower petals and head to their hotel via an Austin rickshaw.
