Wine Country wedding on The Wedding Chicks

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

The Wedding Chicks were excited to see Katherine and Benjamin’s wine country wedding that we photographed in June.  The flowers and details are so pretty!  Katherine’s mom, Dayna, has been a floral designer for years, so she brought her vision to the day and Katherine totally went with it.  She told me she loved being surprised…such a unique and relaxed attitude.  Katherine and Benjamin are both laidback, which was probably due to their long distance relationship for THREE whole years.  Wow.  They knew they wanted to bring their Texas loved ones (including Paxton the dog) to Yountville for an intimate (and stunning) celebration.  It was truly a special day and you can see the joy on their faces to finally tie the knot.  Congrats to K&B!

Texas wedding on Ruffled

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

For a little something different, Ruffled is featuring a Texas wedding in plum and gray that we photographed in Austin.  Kathy and Jamey have their own unique style…Kathy even wore a gray wedding dress, Vera Wang no less!  JJ their dog was the ringbearer as they got married at Barr Mansion.  Lots of plum colors, including the bouquets made of feathers and cala lilies.  But first…the kiss…
