A few weeks ago, Kim and Jordan were married. With both a beautiful couple, wonderful ceremony and super fun reception to boot – I don’t think the day could have been more perfect! Kim put so much thought into every part of the wedding, especially the details which I had a blast photographing. I feel so fortunate to have been asked to participate in their special day, and I hope the pictures show this.

I loved that Kim chose to get ready at her own home. It made for some awesome pictures, and also makes the whole process much more comfortable and convenient for the bridal party.

Soon it was time to head over to the venue – Vintage Villas on Lake Travis. Even despite the cloudy day and drought we were in at the time (since over), this venue offers gorgeous views of the lake. Additionally, they have hotels and lodging which makes it convenient for both the night of your wedding as well as out of town guests.

In case you didn’t see this picture in my teaser post a couple weeks ago, I had to include it again. This is definitely one of my favorite shots from the day. Kim was just STUNNING.

Flowers were amazing – created by Bouquets of Austin.

At the end of their ceremony, Kim + Jordan did a dove release. It was the first time I’ve ever experienced it at a wedding and thought it a really cool tradition! These are homing doves, so I was happy to learn that once released, they are trained to fly right back home :)

THEN it was portrait time!! Kim bought her ladies (and guests) these awesome parasols which I just HAD to use in some photos. They made for great props.

Then it was party time! In that this was a daytime wedding, Kim and Jordan’s family and friends really know how to party! DJ Chicken George was in attendance and rocked the house! He’s by far my favorite DJ in town!!

Their first dance was choreographed (I think they did it on their own) and so SO good!

Jordan is a musician and some of his friends and former band mates surprised them with a performance of Al Green’s Simply Beautiful – I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room (myself included).

A couple of ring shots:

Can you see me?

Instead of a cake, they got yummy treats from Hey Cupcake!

And lastly, a farewell with bubbles!!

Thanks again for choosing me as your photographer Kim + Jordan! I wish you nothing but the best life together :)
