From Heather Rowland Photography…This stunning lakeside wedding was the perfect mixture of intimate and elegant. The bride Khaki and her groom Grant made for a beautiful couple and truly set their wedding apart from so many others by emphasizing elements that represented their love, style, and taste. By remaining true to themselves the wedding was simply exquisite yet laid back and extremely personal to this precious couple.
The bride and her bridesmaids spent the morning drinking mimosas and getting dressed overlooking the beautiful Barton Creek resort. Her custom Anne Barge gown was on display and her mom’s vintage veil complimented it perfectly adding a sweet family touch to her bridal couture. Khaki’s invitation suite is by far a favorite of mine and I’d give anything to turn that gorgeous envelope liner into custom wallpaper in my home! It was a unique look that represented Khaki and her ethereal taste so well.
Later that evening the string quartet and chiavari chairs were set for the ceremony overlooking beautiful Lake Travis. As the sun was setting Khaki and Grant tied the knot surrounded by their loved ones on the most perfect September evening. The ceremony was followed by a chic cocktail hour where guests were greeted with a signature cocktails garnished with jalapeños, which made for a nice (and subliminal) Texas touch. Guests mingled on the lawn while the men gravitated towards the cigar bar where cigars were being hand-rolled by professionals on site. Custom matchboxes adorned with the couples name made for a perfect signature touch and take-home favor for guests to enjoy. Beautiful hors d’oeuvres were passed on custom monogrammed cocktail napkins until dinner was announced. Guests then ate family style along the Villa del Lago pavilion lawn and enjoyed southern comfort cuisine under the Texas stars and intimate string lighting.
“The Pictures” a local Austin favorite, set the pace for the evening by playing a wide variety of hit songs both past and present. Guests visited the dance floor all night long while Khaki and Grant relished in the moment in the midst of it all. The bride’s cake was understated and elegant with a bit of an art-deco theme coupled with vintage green crystal toasting glasses, which have been used by Khaki’s family in weddings past. The couple had a classic sparkler exit where they were whisked away by a unique vintage car. This wedding was truly one of my favorite events I’ve photographed to date. It felt so extremely personal and heartfelt while still remaining stylish and upscale.

From the Bride-to-be… Mike and I both went to college at the University of Colorado at Boulder. We had only been dating for three months before we decided to move to Austin together. Some people might say that it was fast, but for us we knew it was the right decision for us and of course our dog, Libby too. After looking for our first jobs, we ended up working together on a Senate campaign for a year and a half. Our boss tricked me into going to the Texas State Capitol for a work event, but when we got to the front stairs, Mike got down on one knee and proposed! We had the whole place to ourselves and it’s the most memorable moment of my life. We have been engaged for a year and a half so we are really excited to be getting married in July. Since we met in Colorado, it has a special place in our hearts and we feel so lucky to be getting married in Vail.

If there were an award for biggest (and most stylish!) bridal party, it’d go to this crew right here. The Bride brought on 17 – yes, 17! – dear friends to stand by her side, and they pulled off mismatched ‘maids gowns to a T. No surprise, the wedding is equally as chic thanks to a vendor crew like Stefanie Miles, Bows + Arrows, Belle Mariee, Marquee Event Group, and the ridiculously amazing Ryan Ray behind the camera. An entire afternoon spent browsing in The Vault? Count us in.

From Stefanie Miles… Kim and Sam were truly one of our most laid back couples in 2015 with a huge love for the dance floor! We translated Kim’s soft and organic style into a modern downtown event space for a fun and fabulous party that could be heard throughout downtown Austin.
The day began with all 17 bridesmaids and 15 groomsmen getting ready for the ceremony – a morning full of laughter and celebration. The entire wedding party was transported to Laguna Gloria for the couple’s intimate first look and then wedding party portraits. Brazos Hall provided a beautiful modern backdrop for the ceremony – lush floral from Bows & Arrows and the fantastic gospel choir set an incredible tone for the fun celebration, beginning in the ceremony!
One of our favorite highlights was the gospel choir singing “Joyful, Joyful” as beautiful Kim was escorted in by her father, and then sending the new Mr. and Mrs. out to “Oh Happy Day”! It was truly a meaningful celebration of love and joy. The reception downstairs kicked off with a laid back cocktail hour before dinner, and In10city kept the entire crowd on the dance floor the rest of the night!
