Detail of the Week | Redux

Last year around this time, I was able to photograph the Driskill tree lighting and party. It was beautiful and festive and cozy. I love the Driskill for weddings, events, bridals – anything! It was planned and designed by the creative geniuses over at BZ Events and featured a beautiful champagne cocktail with a sparkly swizzle stick.

A few weeks ago, I noticed a lot of traffic from Pinterest to that photo and I felt badly that we didn’t have a recipe to go along with the photo. So I hit up the BZ people and voila! Just in time for the holidays, a festive cocktail recipe for you. It’s easy and gorgeous!

Austin Wedding Photographer | Kelli and Noah at Wild Onion Ranch

To be filed under “What took you so long Cunningham?”, we have Nelli Day up on the blog today. You have seen them on Style Me Pretty but now it’s my turn to show you their wedding day. It was held at the lovely Wild Onion Ranch in Austin and was filled with beautiful décor, food and fun.

Some couples (and to be honest, most of the couples I have the privilege to photograph) really embrace their vendors and make us feel less like hired help and more like a cherished guest. Kelli and Noah and their families were the epitome of this philosophy. Since we had spent so much time together during their engagement, I really felt like I knew them and I am proud to say I saw two friends get married that Saturday.

This wedding has many of my favorite wedding touches, sparkly shoes, a first look, TWO dresses, lemonade, genuine chemistry and love, vintage pews at the ceremony, awesome dancing, sparkler exit, a vintage car, and a Hora!

Congratulations AGAIN you two. I love and adore you (and your familes)!

Austin Engagement Photographer | Bethany + Jordan

Yea! It’s Bethany and Jordan’s wedding week! I can’t wait to see them this Saturday and take a million pictures of their cute smiley faces! These two are such gems and we had a wonderful afternoon at the park, eating and paddle boarding (well they did the paddle boarding, I just stood in the water). Plus I got to meet their wonder pug Petey. Any dog as cool as him is welcome at my shoots.

Thanks for the fun I will see you two soon at The Vineyards at Chappell Lodge for your wedding!

Salt Lick Rehearsal Dinner | Kelli and Noah

The Nelli’s! Kelli and Noah kicked off their wedding weekend with a delightful rehearsal dinner at the Salt Lick Pavilion in Dripping Springs, Texas. There were many personal touches and even beer donkeys. These two little guys were the cutest! The evening was filled with hugs and sweet speeches and finished off with a s’mores station in front of the fire pit.

It was the perfect prelude to ‘Nelli Day’, which if you haven’t already seen it on Style Me Pretty, then you will see it here soon!
