Though Meredith and Jake were recommended to me by another photographer (yay photog friends!), their wedding day didn't feel in any way as if we had just met 4 months ago. From their first email to me, we connected over a passion to see marriage reflect God's love and beauty. It was such a pleasure to get to know them (and discover all of our mutual friends!) and their wedding truly did show off their joy in the Lord and each other. Their wedding was also the first that I had a chance to shoot at the gorgeous Heritage House, built and run by a long time family friend of ours in Dripping Springs!
I'm a total sucker for sentimental touches and symbolism, so with all the meaningful surprises Jake left for his bride, like this door hanger and lilies of the valley, I was in heaven photographing them all.
Katie of Little Yellow Flower Design delighted us with her sweet and simple, but whimsical florals - she even included green berries in the bridesmaid bouquets and boutonnieres! I love that creativity.
Isn't Meredith just stunning?!
I love that the girls wore skirts and cute tops! It definitely goes to show that breaking wedding norms can totally pay off!
In photographing Jake and his dapper groomsmen, I was struck by what a blessing it is that he could stand up on his wedding day surrounded by solid men who have been witnesses to his character to years.
I am completely in love with Heritage House's reception hall, and Jake and Meredith's simple decor fit so perfectly!
Jake and Meredith also created door prizes and handed them out to the couple who'd been married the longest, had the greatest age difference, etc, which was a fun way to engage with their guests!
I have lots of favorite things about this wedding, but one of them is that instead of cake, the bride & groom had Amy's Ice Cream and personally served homemade cobbler to their friends and family!
