The Austin Four Seasons on a crisp and sunny Fall day, a romantic night time ceremony on the lawn under twinkle lights and a rocking reception that went on long after most of Austin was sleeping. This is most definitely the kind of wedding to end my year on.
Sandra and Andrew are my travelling couple and it was only fitting that their wedding guests flew in from all parts of the United States and Mexico to celebrate with them. I know how much effort Sandra put into her wedding plans and she had the extra challenge of currently living in Washington DC. As a former long distance planning bride, I know the extra challenges it presents, so I was so happy to see her vision come together so nicely on her wedding day.
Aimee Villa fromLizzeBelle was a big part of the reason that things looked so great and ran so smoothly. As I’ve told you all a million times, a great Wedding Coordinator not only makes things run more smoothly for the couple, but all of their vendors as well. Thanks for everything Aimee! ALso, big thanks to Tali for seconding as usual. Complete vendor info is at the bottom.
Thank you so much Sandra and Andrew for having me in your lives these past months. I hope you had a lovely honeymoon and know that you will have a beautiful life together. Talk soon!
We shot a mini Bridal Session with Sandra to start the day.
I did zero retouching on her skin – it’s just this perfect.
The first look – always a delight to me.
Their bilingual night time ceremony incorporated many Mexican wedding traditions.
The reception was decorated in shades of purple with gold accents. The lighting really helped transform the space and made it glow.
The food looked great too. Something I love about the Four Seasons is that they will customize anything you want for your menu.
I can honestly say that this crowd had the best time, was the best dressed and probably on the whole, the best looking group of reception guests I have ever seen. As far as I know, they might still be dancing. 2011 party goers – the standard has been set.
