Jessica & Cristian’s Al Fresco Garden Wedding at The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Jessica and Cristian got married at one Austin’s greatest ecological treasures, The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The Center’s gardens display native plants from Central, South and West Texas.  It was a gorgeous backdrop, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for their outdoor courtyard wedding.

Here is the backstory on Jessica and Cristian met from their wedding website:  We met 5 1/2 years ago at a party in NYC. After several months of dating, Cristian moved to Jessica’s home state of Texas to attend law school at UT Austin, while Jessica continued her program at NYU. After living on opposite sides of the country for three years we were finally reunited in NY, and now live in downtown Brooklyn.

At the wedding, Jessica and Cristian announced to their guests that they would be moving to Singapore to follow an amazing job opportunity! Congrats to the couple and good luck with your new start overseas!

Anastasia & Will’s Wedding at Barr Mansion

Anastasia and Will are a wedding photographer’s dream because they had the most loving and electric expressions, especially when gazing at each other, all day long. They had a labor day weekend wedding in Austin, Texas at the farm-to-table venue, Barr Mansion. We’re so glad they had a first look because the photographs are priceless. This was my first wedding with the Persian tradition of the Sofreh (spread) Aghd (ceremony).  I’ve done a little reading up on the tradition and it turns out it is a common Iranian cultural tradition. The tabletop spread represents the couples new marriage and life together.  No two sofreh aghd’s are alike as each are lovingly customized to each couple and assembled by the couple’s loved ones.  The symbolism of the mirror pictured below, is that it reflects the lit candles and brings light into their future. Then the mirror usually finds it way home with the bride and groom.

Congrats to Anastasia and Will! At the bottom of this post you will find a list of participating vendors.

Tuesdee & Derek’s Wedding at Escondido Golf & Lake Club

Tuesdee and Derek’s wedding was a romantic and lavish affair at the Tuscan inspired venue Escondido.  Tuesdee and Derek met during High School in West Texas and both attended Texas Tech University.  During a winter ski trip in Durango, Colorado, Derek took Tuesdee on a sleigh ride to a romantic destination where he proposed!  How do you even plan that!? A hill by a frozen lake, thousands of miles from home, and rose petals in the snow. Then he took her back to the ski lodge where both of their families were waiting as a surprise to celebrate!  Tuesdee and Derek and their families are so thoughtful and a lot of planning and collaboration went into this celebration and you can find a full list of vendors at the bottom of this post.  One of our favorite moments in the wedding was Tuesdee’s twist on the bouquet toss. Instead of tossing some wedding luck to one lady, she gave each bachelorette a single stem and then blessed them all with a prayer that they will meet their ideal partner in due time.  Congrats Tuesdee and Derek!

Jackie and Josh

Jackie and Josh’s Wedding at Mercury Hall

Jackie and Josh’s wedding was loving and jovial.  Which was to be expected after their playful engagement session at Peter Pan putt putt.  Playfulness is probably a trait picked up from growing up with brothers! You’ll notice that the bridal party and officiant were comprised of Jackie and Josh’s brothers.

This is what Jackie had to say about working with us:  “Seriously, look no further for your photographer. Andy and Faith were absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough amazing things about them. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would! Working with them was so much fun. We just got out photos back and I’m getting to relive our day over and over again because of all the amazingness they captured! They were there for every moment big or small. So happy with their work!!!”
