I truly love each wedding I shoot, but every once and a while I get the privilege of shooting a special one. I've known Zack since I was three, and clicked immediately with Julia when she moved to Dripping Springs in middle school. We all love learning, nature, and especially oak trees. I remember when they first started dating during sophomore year of high school, and can't believe it's been 8 years since then! Through four years of college on opposite sides of the country, Zack and Julia's relationship stayed strong and grew stronger, and they were just as giddy together on their wedding day as they were sophomore year of high school.
Their engagement shoot was also one of my favorites and was published on Bliss Bridal magazine's blog. I love each of their families dearly and feel so blessed to be a part of their celebration at Green Pastures in South Austin.
You all know I'm a sucker for sentimental details, and this one may have topped them all. Julia's grandmother gave her several pieces of jewelry when she was little, and when Julia received them, she decided not to wear this beautiful pair of pearl earrings until her wedding day.
Seriously, I can't get over how gorgeous Julia is!
The guys were more of hams than the girls were! We had some fun :)
Julia's mom is a musician for the Musical Discovery Chamber Players, so the whole day was filled with lovely live music.
Love the octopus cake toppers! Green Pastures made the lovely and delicious cakes!
I LOVED Le Photo Booth's set up, with a unique backdrop and online uploading system.
We stole a few minutes away to take some photos under the awesome chandelier Julia found before Zack & Julia's friends and family sent them off with a chorus of bells.
