Now this is pretty cool. While I was posting about Tomie + Rusty’s Wedding Album here yesterday, their wedding was also being published on Austin Wedding Blog! Cool, right? If you’re getting married in Austin and haven’t seen this blog yet, you should definitely check it out. Rachel who runs the blog loves to post all sorts of wedding ideas, planning tips, lovely pictures, local vendors and events and real Austin weddings to inspire us all. At @AustinWeddings, she also tweets helpful info and articles that any bride can benefit from. I especially loved her recent tweet about wedding pie pops. So yummy!

Big thanks to Rachel for spreading a little June Blossom love around! I appreciate it =) And to Tomie + Rusty for inviting me to share their day with them. It was an honor to capture it all! You can see more of their beautiful and fun wedding day here.

Until next time, stay inspired!

Recently, we had the pleasure of capturing Tomie and Rusty’s Wedding at the Caswell House in downtown Austin. What a gorgeous location! The vintage paintings, woodwork, stained glass windows, and chandeliers set quite a stage for their traditional yet fun event. I wanted to share a few of my favorite images before their gallery officially opens on Friday. Click here to sign their guest book and be notified when it’s unveiled. Enjoy!




Tomie and Rusty are pretty awesome. They chose March 14th as their wedding date and their ceremony began at 1:59PM.  Put that together and you get 3.14159 ~ otherwise known as Pi. Yep, Pi. Their flower girls even had little Pi symbols on their baskets. Now that’s what I call mathematically adorable. ^_^

This is Tomie’s engagement ring. If you look closely, you’ll see that it is the “One Ring” from the Lord of the Rings. Pretty Awesome!

As they were pronounced husband and wife, this happened. So Tomie!

Now I must show you Rusty’s Pac-Man Groom’s Cake – complete with power pellets =)

Tomie and Rusty ~ Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your day. We had so much fun! P.S. The Hokie Pokie will be fully documented in your gallery ^_~

Cheers,
Heather

A few weeks ago, our friends Mel and Paul were married at the Irie Bean Coffee Shop. It was the first wedding the shop had played host to but it totally worked for their ceremony and relaxed celebration after. Plus, they’re regulars =) Being guests at a wedding was fun too but we still ended up photographing here and there. Big thanks to the Irie Bean! Such a pretty place to get married. And can I just say they have the most awesome Green Tea smoothies ever!? Yum!!

Mel made these cute favor bags to hold different colors of chalk so guests could doodle after the ceremony.

I really liked Mel’s ensemble. (very cute)

One cool feature of the Irie Bean’s outdoor area is the cement mixer. It actually has a cutout in the middle so you can walk through it. Mel and Paul almost got married under it but the stage won out.

And this is Mel and Paul’s very short (but sweet) ceremony. Almost whirled by but we caught it! ^_^

Can anyone guess which comic book hero this pays tribute to? (Paul loves his comics!) =D

I have to say it. Mel is awesome. She baked her own fondant wedding cake. (awesome)

Time for cake

Remember those chalk favors? Well, a talented artist friend decided to create this masterpiece in celebration of their wedding. He titled it ~ The Marriage Dragon. Epic!

Yesterday, we photographed Mel and Paul’s Austin wedding at the Irie Bean Coffee Shop. Very cool, very unique, and a very, very fun event!  Going through their images, this one just popped out to me and I had to share it. I love the colors and the hearts! (Chalk is an awesome addition to any wedding ^_~)

More images from Mel + Paul’s Wedding coming soon! Cheers!

Last weekend, we flew up to Michigan for Shirley and Tony’s wedding. They were married underneath an old shade tree strung with tiny white lights and Chinese paper lanterns (so pretty) Because they wanted a fun and relaxed day with their family and friends, they ended up doing things a bit differently (We loved it!) Best of all, since they were married on the 4th of July there were plenty of fireworks and sparklers to celebrate!

Shirley and Tony chose to have their pictures taken at the beginning of their day which gave them more time with their friends and family. It also let us capture this wonderful moment.

Shirley and Tony had their reception and cake cutting after the pictures and a quick rehearsal. Everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves. What a great way to relax before the ceremony!

Since Tony is an independent filmmaker (UFO) and Shirley both acts and produces too, they had some very talented film and actor buds come to celebrate. We decided to unleash their creativity with Guest Cam!

Their poolside reception gave me a cool idea.

As dusk began to fall, a path marked by flickering candles led the way for their guests to the old shade tree. The lights and lanterns glimmered against the evening sky, setting the perfect scene for their ceremony.

Sparklers were handed out at the end of their ceremony to make the evening even more festive and fun!

We hope you enjoyed Shirley + Tony’s preview. There’s much more to see so be sure to come back on August 4 when their Wedding Gallery debuts. Until then, cheers!

We’re so excited to be featured on the lovely paper and wedding inspiration blog, Oh So Beautiful Paper! Nole Garey, a newlywed with a fondness for all things paper, has published a post on Katy + Matt’s Viriginia Wedding. Nole created the couple’s ceremony programs which we made sure to get a picture of. (so stylish!)

I’m totally loving the designs her blog showcases. Did I ever mention how much I went overboard on designing our wedding stationary? Oh my gosh, never again =) But I still go wild over great design whenever I see it. If you’re newly engaged and looking for inspiration for your wedding paperie or just a fellow lover of great design, take a moment to visit Nole’s blog! Seriously, check it out!

ohsobeautifulpaperHappy Thursday!

Katy and Matt were married just outside of Charlottesville at the Veritas Vineyards and Winery. They chose to have their ceremony on the winery lawn overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. (so gorgeous!) Friends and family flew in from all across the country and the world to celebrate. We could feel just how loved they were by everyone who shared their day with them. Katy and Matt, it was such an honor to be apart of your day! We can’t wait to show you the rest!

All of Katy and Matt’s Wedding Images will be unveiled June 25th on our gallery. Until then, enjoy the preview!

I’ve been going through Katy + Matt’s images from their wedding last weekend. While I’m still trying to pick my favorites (so hard!) I wanted to share their First Look with you. Katy + Matt chose to have their pictures taken before their ceremony so they would have more time with their friends and family after. (Very smart!) We recommend this to all of our couples as it seems to help with any pre-wedding jitters plus it gives them a wonderful moment like this one.

More to come from their lovely wedding in Virginia. See you soon!
