A Blanket of Bluebonnets Made for the Ultimate Hill Country Wedding

I have to say Amanda and Craig’s Texas wedding was planned to perfect, thanks to Vintage&Lace‘s incredible vision and talent. But one of my favorite parts of this day isn’t something that could be planned — it’s the bluebonnet flowers, which surrounded Heritage House and made for the most beautiful photos. Luckily, Loft Photography LLC was there to capture it all for us in The Vault!

From Loft PhotographyAmanda and Craig are Austinites through and through, but recently made the move to California for work. It was only appropriate that they came back to tie the knot in the Texas hill country just outside the city they love, complete with a What-a-burger groom’s cake!

Their wedding day was sweet as could be with gorgeous blue tones weaved throughout, and perfectly pink florals by Petal Pushers as a lovely contrast. And it just so happened that the hills were blanketed with bluebonnets for their day – the prettiest backdrop for these two!

An E-Sesh That’s Cooler Than Cool and Red Hot

Know how we told you this engagement session was cooler than cool AND red hot? Well, we weren’t pulling your leg on that one, because this darling duo with Courtney Leigh Photography behind the lens pulled off an e-sesh like no other. It’s downtown cool coupled with uptown glam and it has completely won our hearts over, and we have a feeling this gallery sitting in The Vault will do the same for you.

From Courtney Leigh PhotographyKristen and Eric are such a joyful couple and they’ve got serious style too! They are planning a gorgeous downtown Houston wedding at Hotel ZaZa in March of 2017, so they wanted to incorporate that same city chic vibe into their engagement session! They chose the urban streets of downtown Houston and Rice University campus as their locations for the session and it fit seamlessly with their classy taste! Kristen has a stunning beauty about her and the pop of red on her is just beautiful captured on film! These two have such an infectious joy about them and they were so much fun to photograph!

From The Bride…We always envisioned our wedding to be outdoors. Growing up in the Philippines and coming from simple families, we spent a majority of our time outdoors enjoying anything from parks, beaches, and even our backyards. There is something about being and connecting outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of society. In addition, our frequent trips to Austin and its surroundings made us realize this is where we wanted our wedding to be. Le San Michele, which is in the city of Buda is just 20 minutes from Austin, played a perfect host as it had everything we hoped to have and more. Driving through the gates and onto a gravel filled driveway led us to house which represented simple old world charm. Having an expansive lawn, ample greenery which included a myriad of flowers and trees, and intricate chandeliers hanging within the branches had us imagining what our day would be like from the minute we walked out of the French doors and into the vastness of the vicinity. The only thing left to do at that moment was book our day and hope for great weather.

Having come from very tight knit families we always knew that we wanted our wedding to revolve around the theme of bonds. We involved our family members to help us in every aspect of the wedding so that when it came to the big day they would feel a sense of pride knowing they contributed to a successful event. Till this day, we are still so appreciative of our family as they supported us from the beginning to the end without hesitation. For instance, Ralph’s uncle officiated the ceremony, which turned out to be very heartfelt and full of humor. Monica’s eldest sister and Ralph’ sister in law were the wedding coordinators. To sum it up everyone from both sides of our families played a role.

As for our guests, they traveled as far as Houston, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, New York City, Alberta, Minnesota, Philippines and even the Czech Republic. Keeping with the theme of our wedding, we invited those who truly saw our relationship develop throughout the years. Our story is a little out if the ordinary. Monica came from a military family that moves around. Ralph was raised in Houston TX a majority of his life, but both somehow found each other in their freshman year of college in the Philippines 7 years back. Our family, friends and former classmates were able to see us grow as individuals and as a couple. With everyone so close to us being so spread out across the world, we felt so much gratitude to those who came to share this day with us.

One thing we really wanted for our wedding was for our guests to feel at ease. We ensured this by preparing lawn games during cocktail hour. Children and adults could be seen enjoying themselves in a round of corn hole and crochet. Passed Hors d’oeuvres were prepared by the awesome Catering With a Twist. Cocktails and beer on tap kept the guests mingling, and to top it off we brought two miniature burros for the children to play with. They also made for a great picture opportunity. After cocktail hour, everyone made their way to the stoned patio, found their seats under the hanging garden lights and Catering with a Twist delighted us again with an amazing dinner. We had the best seats in the house as we were able to see everyone’s faces smiling, conversing, and enjoying the music. After the formalities, we were treated to a night of incredible music prepared by Toast Entertainment. Hips were moving, legs were shuffling, and hands were nae naeying. It was picture perfect, and we are so thankful to have Kerry Jeanne capture it all. We still find ourselves in awe at how amazing the pictures came out.

Realizing that everything turned out to be exactly what we wanted , all we can be is thankful to those who were involved. Our wedding was a night to remember not only because of the amazing venue or the serene atmosphere but because it was full of love. Love from our guests and love for each other. We believe that we belong to each other, and it transpired throughout our wedding night.
