How did you choose your venues: Smith Family Chapel and Barton Creek Resort?

My family grew up vacationing at Barton Creek, and I fell in love with this place at an early age.  When Andrew and I decided we wanted a destination wedding, Barton Creek was on the top of my list.  Andrew and I came to visit, and he fell in love with it too!  The Smith Family chapel was the perfect little chapel near Barton Creek and the beautiful Austin stone and charm was what drew us to have the ceremony there.

Describe your decor and how you chose it?

We wanted to go for a traditional and timeless wedding.  We stuck with an all-white color pattern in our florals and decor, with personal touches.  

Why did you choose me, Jenny, to be your wedding photographer?

When we found Jenny online, we instantly fell in love with her style and photography approach.  We told Jenny that we truly felt like she captured special moments, rather than creating them for photos.  Her pictures from our wedding day really melted our hearts.

What was one of your favorite moments from the your wedding day?

I think Andrew would agree that our favorite moment was when those church doors opened and we got to lock eyes for the first time on our wedding day.  I get chills now thinking about it!!!

What was your favorite image from your wedding day?

Our favorite image is the one where we are leaving the church after just being pronounced husband and wife.  Our faces reflect the pure joy in our hearts, and Jenny genuinely captured it in this photo.  We even gave this photo to our families for Christmas.  

Did any of your other vendors go above and beyond for you?

ALL OF THEM!!!  Our wedding planner, Becky, photographer, Jenny, and florist, Abby, became our new best friends.  Couldn’t have planned and coordinated a more perfect day for Andrew and me.

Do you have any tips to share with other couples?

Try to be as present and possible and soak in every minute of your wedding day.  It will go by in a flash, so take in those joyous moments!
