The most laid back, easy going couple of the year award goes to Jessica and Ryan. They didn’t sweat the small stuff and handled some of the bigger curve balls with a cool, calm and collective style. A thunderstorm and temporarily lost wedding ring (watch out for holes in your pant pockets guys!) would have sent some of the nicest gals into psychotic bridezilla mode. Not Jessica and Ryan. The wedding took place indoors (which turned out to be way cooler in all of our opinions) and the ring was found. Working with couples like this just makes me so excited to do my job and give them my absolute best.
Also, Jessica and Ryan got hitch at a pretty damn cool photography studio out in the hill country, called the Studio at Fischer. This was the venues first wedding and it was really quite an amazing space. In addition, this bride was lucky enough to have one of the most incredible design talents here in Austin as her sister (Olivia Sharratt from Liv by Design). Kinda lucky to have a wedding planner in the family. And, for me, this wedding was a breath of fresh air. Its was modern, edgy and indoors with not a single mason jar to be found. Which is such a stark contrast to the vintage, rustic chic weddings that are all the rage right now. Don’t get me wrong, I love those too, but it was nice to see something different. Especially because that is not every brides style, like this city girl who lived out in L.A. for a little while.
This is one of my favorite photos!
Check out these two giving each other the ‘eye’ during their ceremony…so cute!
I love their big long head table. It had such great atmosphere!
Right after Liv gave her speech, she went over to give her sis a big hug but this big table had gotten in the way. It was actually a great moment.
Oh, and the couple preformed a tango which was awesome!
Congrats, I am sooo happy for you both!
Q. Bride: What is your favorite memory of the day?A. Seeing and spending alone time with Ryan before the ceremony for our first look photos was the most memorable moment. I loved sitting at our amazing head table with all of our friends too!
Q. Groom: What is your favorite memory of the day?A. Seeing Jess for the first time during our “first look” photos and hanging with the boys right before we walked out for the ceremony.
Q. Bride: What advice would you give future brides?A. Relax, have FUN and be present in the moment!! The day will not go 100% as planned but it will all work out for the best so just relax and enjoy your special day.
Q. Groom: What advice would you give to future grooms?A. Hold on to the rings! My best man lost Jessica’s wedding band which was later found but definitely a not-so-fun scare.
