Spring was in full bloom in Texas (including one or possibly two Bluebonnets), and it was just in time for Marcus and Jamie’s wedding extravaganza. This weekend affair was four days of fun and togetherness for the couple, and their friends and family were a part of every moment. Right from the beginning, I knew that this would be an extraordinary event.
The guests came from all over the country for this extended soiree. The bride and groom to be, who now live in Saint Paul, MN, greeted their guests to a fantastic grooms dinner at the Salt Lick. This iconic BBQ joint, located outside of Austin, was the perfect place to get the party started.
A short drive down an unassuming dusty road led to the grand Memory Lane Event Center in Dripping Springs. The big Texas skies were the bluest of blue, and sunshine was plentiful on this picture-perfect wedding day. The beautiful bridesmaids wore custom-cut dresses the same hue as the sky, and the groomsmen sported bowties to match.
The idyllic setting was only outshone by the smiles of Jamie and Marcus. Their excitement for the big moment enveloped everyone present, and the love in the air was inspiring. There were tears of joy during the sweet and romantic ceremony, which was presided over by a dear friend of the couple. The strong connection between these two was almost overwhelming as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife.
The celebration that followed the “I Do’s” was a high-spirited gathering of family and friends. The fajita dinner was amazing, and the toasts and well-wishes for the couple produced both tears and laughter. The love that surrounded the couple extended to each and every guest, and that continued into brunch the next morning.
Marcus and Jamie; Thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer. I felt like I was a part of your amazing family, and I will never forget the time I shared with y’all! Congratulations!
