How did you choose your venue: Sacred Oaks?
We originally planned to do he wedding in California in wine country at a vineyard but it was overwhelming and expensive, I saw a picture of Camp Lucy on Facebook late one night and started looking at the pictures of the venues and called the next day to book it because of how stunning it looked. We have not even gotten to visit yet! After we got to Austin and see the space I was even more in love than after I looked at the pictures.
Describe your decor and how you chose it?
I wanted to focus and highlight how beautiful the natural scenery was but then wanted to add in some elements of dark. I love weddings done in all neutrals or soft pinks but I wanted something different. Also I tried to remember that this was a portrayal of both my husband and I so I wanted to keep it away from being too pink or purple. Also I like to pretend like I have more gypsy in me than I really do so it was a mixture of some of that bohemian flair but also very traditional in ways. Our wedding designers/planners were able to take snippets of picture I had saved and pull the whole look together. When I showed up on the day of the wedding I was blown away by how everything came together, it was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
Why did you choose me, Jenny, to be your wedding photographer?
We chose you to be our photographer from looking at your beautiful portfolio and then the rave reviews. We asked around and always came back to the same answer of who was best to capture our perfect day!
What was one of your favorite moments from the your wedding day?
One of my favorite moments was the first look with my dad. It was so special and emotional, which is out of the norm for both my dad and I, but something about that made it really sink in how big of a deal everything was and how it was a shift in our lives. It is always sweet to see him get teared up and just made me happy to know that he was happy with the partner I had chosen to go through life with and add to our family. Drew and I are so close that every part with him was fun but that is how it always is.
What was your favorite image from your wedding day?
It is a picture of drew and I under the arch with my bouquet. It is so beautiful and captures how wonderful and beautiful the whole scenery was. Drew looks so handsom 🙂 also it shows off my bouquet which was one of my favorite things!
Did any of your other vendors go above and beyond for you?
Wendee! Omg the flowers were to die for and they were beyond anything I could have imagined! Flowers were one of my most important aspect and I was blown away. They were so BIG!
