For my first wedding of the year, I was honored to photograph Debbie & Randy's beautiful wedding at the gorgeous Buda venue, Le San Michele. As soon as I stepped on the property, it felt like I had left Texas and transported to France. Or what France looks like in my imagination, at least! I was actually the first to arrive and took the opportunity to explore the house and property.
Being a connoisseur of color, I adored the blues and golds that showed up everywhere.
Debbie's vintage/romantic wedding dress is from Unbridaled, a quirky and unique bridal boutique in Austin.
I always love the moments when people arrive and greet one another happily and/or tearfully. Those quiet moments before the craziness of the wedding are always so sweet.
In order to get family photos before the ceremony, Randy & Debbie spent a few moments just with each other. No matter how often I photograph these moments, I never get tired of them.
In the quickly fading light, we got a few natural light portraits.
All the beautiful flowers were put together by Randy's sister.
Quick, before the ceremony starts, let's run back outside for the sunset!!!
Isn't Le San Michele just beautiful?! I'm such a sucker for those lights.
The first dance was slightly chilly, but worth it to be under all the sparkling lights!
For the reception, everyone enjoyed catering by Mandola's and cake by Central Market.
Congratulations, Debbie & Randy!
