Classic Outdoor Wedding at The Allen House Austin

Add a rich color palette like purple and white to a traditional day simply overflowing with gorgeous details and the results are a magical romantic celebration that can only be described as mesmerising. From the stunning flowers, to gorgeous mini wedding cake centerpieces to the fairy light outdoor reception it is a love-filled affair.

From the Photographer

I have memorized Corinthians 13:4-8, also known as “Love is Patient.” In fact, I have memorized many of the wedding prayers, poems, and sayings because of the number of weddings I’ve photographed. Never had a heard a more beautiful and meaningful reading than Kori and Filly’s wedding, when their ceremony was in Spanish. I minored in Spanish, and hearing the words to prayers and poems I’ve heard numerous times brought new meaning to the beautiful words. In many ways, Kori and Filly reflect the poem. They are patient and kind … and they know and understand the true meaning of family, friends, and most importantly, love.

Casual Elegance Southern Style

Morgan and Taylor were high school sweet hearts who met in show choir (yes, just like Glee). The celebrations unfolded over three gorgeous locations which included the bride’s preparation at Clay Hill Farm (a historic estate in Campbellsville, KY), the wedding ceremony at their local christian church, and a gorgeous outdoor marquee reception on a family farm where the family has gathered for Christmases over the decades. The fabulous palette of navy and apple green was a winning stand out inthis affair, as well as the stunning vintage-inspired gown worn by the bella bride. With loads of fun and surprise getaway fireworks it’s no wonder this wedding party wanted to celebrate through the night.

From the photographer

The whole morning before seeing each other at the first look, Corina was so calm! She was completely relaxed and definitely had that beautiful bride’s radiance. She got ready with her closest family and friends and that made the morning that much more special. Upon seeing each other at the first look, both Corina & Jason cried tears of joy and were eagerly ready to say “I do”. Their wedding was a culmination of Jason and Corina’s stylish elements mixed with the rustic feel that Patrick Ranch has to offer. Nearly all of the couple’s guests traveled to be with these two. Family and friends are important to them, and they spent a good portion of cocktail hour mingling and making sure everyone knew how grateful they were for their guests traveling to celebrate with them. Jason and Corina are a perfect pair and it was such a joy to photograph them on their special day!!

From the bride:

My only direction was that it had to be a green found in nature. I had my bridesmaids choose any green dress. Our ceremony was held in an opening among the tall pines overlooking the Connecticut River. It was the kind of overcast day where the sky radiates light evenly, the sun infusing the clouds rather then being shrouded by them. Our dear friend Johanna officiated the ceremony with ease and composure, it was as if the love and support of each person was discernible in the air. We had a old typewriter out that we had used to make our invitations where people could write us words of advice and cheers.

My advice to other brides:  If you feel comfortable in your skin while standing in the woods and mountains, then it will bring something powerful and incredibly focused to your ceremony and reception. Your wedding is an event that celebrates and punctuates the love and friendship that a relationship is born in and thrives from. Relax, breath, and take part in the joy!

From the photographer: Leah and Victor met and fell in love in Miami. When choosing a location for their wedding, they knew there was no place better for them than the beaches of Costa Rica. Victor was born and raised in Costa Rica, and the couple knew this would be the perfect place for their families to meet and celebrate together. After a sweet, intimate wedding the couple danced the night away under the stars on the beach with their closest friends and family. The couple even surprised their guests with a traditional Costa Rican comparsa band complete with dancers, drum circle, and stilt walkers to end the night.
