Allison and Jordan were supposed to have their beautiful wedding with all their family and friends this spring until the shutdown happened. Like most couples, they decided to move their big celebration to the following year but wanted to get married anyway. So I traveled to their home in North Austin, entered their backyard, and was ready to photograph their very sweet nuptials during a fresh spring drizzle. Jordan’s parents drove into town and his dad was able to marry them both. Allison’s friends sent over a bouquet for her to hold and they did their best to make their backyard the perfect setting for their micro wedding. These weddings are going to be such incredible stories to tell years later when we look back and this crazy year of 2020 and this pandemic. Every couple planning a wedding or wanting to get married at this time is facing an incredible challenge. But no matter what their decisions are, they are all gaining a focus of what truly counts in all this which is each other. Shortly after they were married, had a glass of champagne, Allison turned to Jordan and said, let’s go inside and play some Doom now! Ha!! I am looking forward to photographing their wedding next year at Escondito Golf Resort in the Texas hill country with the amazing Verve Events.
