Crystal + Matthew’s Wedding: Vintage Villas at Lake Austin | Austin, TX

March 14, 2011

Three weeks ago, Jeremy and I headed up to Lake Travis’s Vintage Villas for Crystal + Matthew’s wedding. I had been super excited about their wedding ever since meeting with Crystal and getting to know more about them and their vision; handmade fabric flowers with button centers, a button-and-bird cake, a rainbow-colored button necklace, and a beautifully crocheted yellow shawl from her mother. Crystal and Matthew’s day was a celebration of all things fun, colorful, meaningful, and them ~ very them!

Crystal handmade her bouquet, weaving together brilliant spring flowers with handmade button medallions.

I LOVED Crystal’s rainbow-colored necklace! The bright, candy colors showed off her fun-loving personality perfectly.

February weather can be unpredictable around the lake. However, fluffy clouds and patches of blue sky made appearances throughout the day. What a gorgeous place to be married!

Their ceremony was very personal. They each wrote their own vows to each other and included some their favorite quotes: “Oh! The Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss, the Apache wedding blessing and an awesome quote from Firefly! Yes, they quoted Firefly!

“Love. Can know all the math in the ‘verse but take a boat in the air that you don’t love? She’ll shake you off just as sure as a turn in the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down …tell you she’s hurting before she keens. Makes her a home.” – Capt. Malcolm Reynolds

Did I mention it was a windy day? Well, it was a windy day. Crystal and Matthew made the most of it by laughing it away. Aren’t they adorable?


These are Crystal’s handmade fabric + button flowers. They adorned all of the reception tables and then at the end of the day they were passed out for each guest to take home. I scored one too! So pretty! Crystal also gave us a locally-made jam from Confituras (which Jeremy happily kept for himself).

Wait for it…

…wait for it….

Bubble Blast!

I really like this article on your website. There are plenty of photography websites that are awful out there, yet this is simply not one. This style you’ve installed certainly enhances the feel and compliments this article wonderfully. I am going to revisit and discover some more of your efforts. Thanks a lot!
