Zoe + Lionel | Vista on Seward Hill Wedding

You really can’t beat a Vista on Seward Hill wedding!

Even the normally brutal August weather was on our side!

The amazing Megan from Pearl Events kept this show on the road! Seriously, the best!

That beautiful chuppah and the florals were designed by our amigos at Bouquets of Austin!

Rosemary’s Catering provided the tasty taste and Magnificent 7 kept everyone dancing until the very end!

Mazel Tov to Zoe and Lionel!

Jessica + Ryan | Napa Valley Wedding Photographers

When Jessica wrote me and asked me if I wanted to photograph her and Ryan’s wedding at her family’s home in Napa, I about died y’all!

I was over the moon to go!

I had such a great time photographing their engagement session here in Austin and I had never been to Napa Valley before! Eeep!

Her family owns Barnett Vineyards and the location was nothing less of stunning!

Jessica and Ryan are two really wonderful, interesting people and I’m so thrilled I could capture their day!

Super cool vendors include the following!

Lindsey of L’Relyea Events was amazing!

Catherine + Andrei | Crystal Ballroom Houston Wedding

Believe it or not, this was my first Houston wedding and I think it’s going to be hard to top!

Catherine and Andrei got ready at the lovely J.W. Marriott Downtown Houston which was impeccable and had a ton of great light!

Their ceremony was held at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church and it was great to see customs new to me!

The trolleys took us back and forth and that was super fun! Can you have a bad time in a trolley? Methinks no.

Sambuca Catering kept everyone from getting hangry and Ken Mondshine & Brotherhood kept everyone dancing!

Accentuate Events kept us in check and organized!

Tyn Redor created Catherine’s gorgeous makeup, which held up all night like a boss!

Other rad vendors include the following!

Florals : Plants n’ Petals

Cake : Sweet Delights

Gelato Bar : Paciugo

This Crystal Ballroom Houston wedding did not disappoint!
