Texas Hill Country Wedding from Christine Sargolog Photography

This Hill Country wedding makes me happy — plain and simple. From the glowing bride to the gorgeous pops of color, it’s like a recipe for a pretty with a sense of homey intimacy woven in along the way. Christine Sargologos Photography captured every  sweet moment to perfection, and you can find it all sitting right here.

From Christine... I could photograph weddings like this every weekend. When I met Kari & Chris they told me they were planning a celebration that would be intimate, fun and authentic. Though they live in Dallas they chose to marry just outside San Antonio at a beautiful family estate near Canyon Lake. Cara Salom, a friend, officiated.

The rambling ranch-style home was designed for entertaining. It has plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to lounge and its modern glass and metal facade sits high in the Texas Hill Country. Perfect for a summer party. With only 50 guests, a mix of family and close friends, Kari focused on a few essentials: delicious food, incredible flowers and the perfect gown. I loved that their entire color inspiration came from Chris’ tie, and that Kari potted all of the succulent centerpieces with her girlfriends. Lending to the relaxed and cheerful mood, Kari & Chris opted for a standing ceremony (complete with their Black Lab, Chole) and one long, shared dinner table for guests. As dinner ended and the sun went down they shared a first dance and some cheesecake. Everyone danced, drank wine, wrote well wishes to the couple and ended the night under the big Texas sky. It was perfect.

Canyon Lake Wedding from Elissa R Photography

We have Elissa R Photography to thank this morning for bringing us the pretty in a seriously stylish way. With its modern feel and color palette, and one dashing duo – this wedding has so many things I adore about weddings wrapped up one in pretty little post. It’s image after image of pure pretty, topped off with a great love, and it’s all waiting for you right here.

From ElissaI loved this black and white wedding shot at the Studio at Fischer in Canyon Lake, Texas last fall. Though there were some classic touches, like the ruffles on the bride’s gown, it was a wedding with a very modern feel — feathers incorporated into the florals, dinner served family-style on each table, and a bold black and white pattern on the invitations and cakes. There was also a ton of dancing and a mariachi band!
