From Mint PhotographyKara and Bill’s gorgeous black tie wedding was a stunner in so many ways! Kara looked like a modern day princess in her Lazaro gown. The detailing on the bodice and the full skirt was breathtaking and we love how she paired the gown with a soft classic look for her hair, so chic! The floral was amazing and the perfect color scheme to keep things elegant and blend with the country club beauty. From the overall style and perfectly soft color palette of the wedding, to the gorgeous setting and sunset on the golf course, it was a magical day. They finished out the evening with one of our favorite bands performing for the reception and as you’ll see it was one heck of a party!

A Chance Meeting in a New City Turned Into a Happily Ever After

Whether or not you believe in fate, this love story is proof that meeting “the one” often happens just when you least expect it. Take the bride Molli who had just moved to a new city and, prompted by her dad’s advice, struck up a conversation with strangers at a local burger bar. One of those strangers later turned out to be her husband, Zach. They planned a wedding at the Allan House and you can dive into the pictures from JP Pratt Photography.

Their love story.. Newly graduated, Molli moved to Orlando, Florida for a new job. It was a new city and she didn’t know anyone in town. Lonely, and seeking community, she called her dad asking for advice. In all his fatherly wisdom, he told her to find the best “hangout” spot in town and wait to meet someone. She took his advice and ended up at a local burger bar! After sheepishly sharing her dad’s advice with the bartender, he pointed out a group of locals who shared a career in the same industry as Molli – sports. She got up the courage and walked over, introduced herself, and became friends with the group. Little did she know, she had just met her husband, Zach, and all of his closest friends!

Zach went to school in Austin and took Molli to visit his alma mater while they were dating. She quickly fell in love with the city and they even adopted a dog and named him Austin! Zach’s work took them to Utah and he proposed on the Snake River Overlook at the base of the Grand Teton Mountains. As they began to plan their wedding, their choice on location was obvious… It had to be in Austin, Texas! It was so clear how in love Molli and Zach were on their wedding day but it was also so incredible to see how loved they are by their friends and family.

Guests traveled from 18 different states and even Italy to celebrate these two! They had a beautifully intimate ceremony under a canopy of trees at The Allan House just outside of Downtown Austin. Following the ceremony was the outdoor reception which was accompanied by an incredible live band and loads of dancing. Everything from the greenery, peonies and ranunculus floral arrangements to the basketball shaped peanut butter cake pops, and the fresh lemon curd and raspberry filled cake screamed Molli and Zach. My favorite detail about their day was their grand exit. As they left for their honeymoon in Italy, their guests waved Italian flags as they ran to their getaway vehicle – a pedicab!

Whimsical

From Nicole Berrett PhotographyThe bride Jessica is one of my dear friends. She herself is a very talented photographer, and it was such an honor to be there to document her special day!! She hired a wonderful team of vendors, and then put so much trust in each vendor to use their own creative voice, and it just came together like a dream!!

From the Bride… JJ and I met in college, and he asked me on a date our sophomore year! I wasn’t too smitten after the first date though, and I still feel horrible to this day! I don’t know what was wrong with me, I know now that was the man of my dreams! He was so patient to wait for me, and when we started dating a year later, we fell in love very quickly. After college we spent three years as a long distance couple, so getting married meant the world to us. We were so excited to finally start our lives together, and love getting to walk through life with each other.

Picking a favorite moment from the entire day is impossible. There are too many moments from the entire weekend that mean too much to me. If I was forced to pick one, exchanging gifts with each other was so special. That was one moment that wasn’t photographed, and we’ll always have just for us. The words and gifts we shared with each other were so meaningful, and I can’t imagine that moment being any sweeter. But there are so many favorite moments in general. The first look was incredible, and I will never forget that. I also loved saying our vows, walking down the aisle, just being pronounced husband and wife, eating dinner just the two of us, and getting up on stage and singing like an idiot at the reception!

My biggest advice to all brides is to do your wedding for yourself, not for others. With resources like Pinterest and social media, it’s easy to want things for your wedding that feel pretty, but may not represent yourselves. Don’t forget that your wedding is a celebration of your relationship and future, don’t get too caught up in the “looks” of your wedding. Trust me, I completely understand wanting a beautiful wedding, and I am so blessed to have had vendors that delivered my dream. But the dresses and flowers and colors don’t mean anything if your heart doesn’t remember what really matters. Some days you just need to put down the magazine or close your laptop, and tell your fiancé how much you love him.
