Kirsten and Neil's Wedding in Redbud Hall at Texas Old Town in Kyle, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/6/kirsten-and-neils-wedding-in-redbud-hall-at-texas-old-town-in-kyle-tx We said it before and we'll say it again.  We love going to Redbud Hall.  It is so cute and cozy...and we've been there so often it just feels like a home away from home.  We love Redbud even more when we get to spend our time there with people like Kirsten and Neil.  From the very first moment we met them, they treated us like family.  They were always so kind and fun to be around.  I don't know if I saw either one of them without a smile on their faces.  Kirsten and Neil's reception was especially fun!  People danced all night long.  Before all of their special dances, Kirsten shared a bit about her relationship with each person with whom she was going to dance.  It was very sweet and such a personal moment.  It was a great addition to the evening.  At the end of the evening, Kirsten and Neil enjoyed a bubble send off with their friends and family.

 

Thank you, Kirsten and Neil, for being so kind and for including us in your day.  We wish you many years of happiness together!

Emma and Gavin's Wedding in Stone Hall at Texas Old Town in Kyle, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/6/emma-and-gavins-wedding-in-stone-hall-at-texas-old-town-in-kyle-tx Emma and Gavin's wedding day was great!!!  We met the girls at Stone Hall early in the day for some getting ready pictures.  Everyone then made their way over to St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Austin for Emma and Gavin's wedding ceremony.  They decided not to do a first look, but did want to have a second alone together to pray before the ceremony.  We found a place right outside the church (and in the shade) where Gavin would stand and not see Emma.  It was such a cute moment as they held hands and laughed and prayed together.  After their ceremony, we spent a few minutes taking family pictures and then everyone made their way back over to Stone Hall. 

 

When we got to the venue, we spent a few minutes with the wedding party and then everyone headed inside to cool off and enjoy the reception.  Dinner was great.  Toasts were great.  Dancing was great!  Around sunset, we got to spend a few more minutes with Emma and Gavin outside taking pictures of just the two of them...well...the two of them and their super cute baby boy!!!  We were so glad that we had time to squeeze in some family pictures for Emma and Gavin.  The rest of the evening was spent celebrating with their friends and family!  Emma and Gavin left their reception through a cloud of bubbles only to find Gavin's vintage truck decorated from bumper to bumper.  It was really cute!

 

Emma and Gavin, thank you so much for sharing your sweet family with us and for making us part of your wedding celebration.  We wish you all many, many years of love and happiness together!

Amber and Adam's Wedding at Belle Oaks Inn in Gonzales, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/6/amber-and-adams-wedding-at-belle-oaks-inn-in-gonzales-tx Amber and Adam’s wedding day had all the charm you’d expect from a true Southern wedding.  The gals began their day with brunch at the historic Belle Oaks Inn while the guys went skeet shooting on the family ranch.  When Julia and I walked through the front door, the house was filled with joy and happiness.  Amber had done such an incredible job preparing every last detail that everyone was relaxed and enjoying the day.  As the ladies began their hair and makeup, Julia and I explored the elaborately decorated rooms of the white-pillared estate house and the grounds that surrounded it.  We were mesmerized by the unique beauty of Amber and Adam’s venue.

 

When it was time for the ceremony, we navigated the small-town streets of Gonzales to the First Lutheran Church, where Adam’s family has served and worshiped for several generations.  Amber’s father gleamed with pride as he officiated his daughter’s wedding, and the importance of family and faith could be felt in every moment of their beautiful ceremony.  As Amber and Adam exited the chapel, the chariot that awaited them was none other than a brand new, white Corvette Stingray - yet another perfect touch to their perfect day.  I’m sure it must’ve taken all the restraint Adam could muster to keep from opening it up on the quiet little streets of Gonzales.

 

Upon their return to Belle Oaks Inn, Amber and Adam enjoyed a private dinner upstairs before rejoining their guests for celebrations.  One thing’s for sure - these two certainly know how to dance! They were actually moving and spinning so fast that I had to increase my camera’s shutter speed for the first time ever!  Amber also kept us on our toes with all of the adorable expressions she made throughout the night - like her reaction when Adam accidentally threw the garter before the guys were ready. We’re so glad we caught that one!

 

Julia and I were truly honored to be a party of Amber and Adam’s wedding.  And even though it was probably the longest wedding day we’ve ever had, we loved every moment and had a wonderful time.

 

Amber and Adam, we wish you both many years of love and happiness together!

 

John and Julia

Alicia and Mark's Wedding at King River Ranch in Johnson City, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/5/alicia-and-marks-wedding-at-king-river-ranch-in-johnson-city-tx Heading out to Johnson City the morning of Alicia and Mark’s wedding, we had a feeling that everything about this day was going to be perfect.  The mid-day wedding was a welcome change of pace.  During our drive from Austin, we enjoyed some of the best views in Hill Country.  However, the serene beauty of King River Ranch was easily the best view of all. When we arrived, we finally had the pleasure of meeting Alicia and Mark in person for the first time. Alicia was looking adorable as can be in her bride’s robe with perfect hair and makeup.  And Mark was easily the most relaxed groom I’ve ever seen on his wedding day, already dressed and watching cartoons with their three little girls in the groom’s suite.  Within a moment of arriving, we could tell that their special day was all about family.

 

When the couple finished getting ready, we headed outside with Mark for their first look.  A few moments later, Alicia emerged from the Bridal Suite looking absolutely stunning.  As she walked towards Mark, Julia and I quietly backed away to allow the bride and groom a proper moment alone.  We can’t remember the last time we captured such a beautiful first look.  It was honestly impossible to take a bad photo of this great looking couple!

 

King River Ranch has one of the most spectacular ceremony sites you could ever hope to see, nestled low in a valley surrounded by rolling green hills.  Wedding photographers are all business during the ceremony, focused on our responsibility to capture every moment to the fullest.  But every once in a while, we have the privilege of capturing a wedding so special that we have to stop for a second to be fully present in the powerful moment before us.  Alicia and Mark’s wedding was truly one of those occasions.

 

John and Julia

Jessica and Brock's Wedding at First Baptist Church and Texas Old Town https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/5/jessica-and-brocks-wedding-at-first-baptist-church-and-texas-old-town There was so much that we liked about Jessica and Brock's wedding!  First and foremost, we loved that we got to know such a sweet, young couple.  Jessica and Brock are so fun and positive and we love that they started their lives together in church.  A few months before their wedding, Elena and I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Jessica at Landa Park for her bridal session.  It was just the three of us and it was so great getting to know her better...and taking beautiful pictures!  We're so glad that we can finally share some of them!

 

Their wedding day was perfect!  The ceremony at First Baptist Church San Marcos was beautiful.  After the ceremony, everyone made their way over to Texas Old Town for the reception.  Jessica and Brock had a lot of activities planned for the evening so the timeline for the day was pretty tight.  We only had a few minutes before they were announced into the reception for pictures of the couple.  But, their pictures are a great example of what an experienced photography team and a super cute bride and groom can accomplish in a very short amount of time.  We LOVE their pictures!  Jessica and Brock's reception was full of fun, laughter, and dancing!  It was so great to see everyone having such a great time...and without booze!  It was a great testimony to the kind of lives that Jessica and Brock want to lead.  Well done!

 

Jessica and Brock, thank you for choosing us to be your photographers!  Elena and I had a wonderful time and wish you many, many years of love and happiness together!

Rubi and Nick's Wedding at The Milestone in Georgetown, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/5/rubi-and-nicks-wedding-at-the-milestone-in-georgetown-tx Elena and I had such a great time at Rubi and Nick's wedding.  They are such a sweet couple and it was so fun watching them celebrate with their friends and family all day.  We arrived early and were able to get all groom/groomsmen and bride/bridesmaids pictures done before the ceremony.  After the ceremony we spent a few minutes with family and then headed inside to avoid the heat.  Once the sun began to set, we headed back outside with Rubi and Nick for their pictures.  They are so relaxed and easy to spend time with...and cute as can be!  Taking pictures of them was a joy!  

 

Rubi and Nick danced the night away with their guests.  Nick even did a little extra dancing for the garter toss!  He did such a great job making that part of the evening fun and different!  At the end of the night, the newlyweds ran off through a cloud of bubbles!

 

Thank you, Rubi and Nick, for including us in your celebration!  We had a wonderful time with you both and wish you many, many years of love and happiness together!

Krupa and Kartik's Wedding at Radha Madhav Dham in Austin, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/5/krupa-and-kartiks-wedding-at-radha-madhav-dham-in-austin-tx Elena and I were so excited about Krupa and Kartik's wedding!  We had been talking about it for weeks.  We had such an awesome time with Krupa and Kartik during their engagement session and knew that their wedding would be so interesting and exciting.  What we love most about Krupa and Kartik (and we saw this from the very first time we met them) is how sweet and kind they are to each other.  Every little look.  Every little smile.  They are just so cute!!!  Part of our goal is to capture the emotion of the day and to document the relationship of the bride and groom.  Krupa and Kartik made our job so easy!

 

This was our first ceremony at the Hindu temple Radha Madhav Dham.  The entire day was so interesting and such a change from what we normally experience at weddings.  From the moment we arrived until we left at the end of the day, everybody was so, so nice to us.  I don't think we've ever spent a day with a nicer group of people.  Everyone was so happy and accommodating.  I couldn't count how many times someone asked us if we were enjoying ourselves!!!  It was like the primary goal of Krupa and Kartik's friends and family was to make sure that Elena and I had a great time!  Well...no worries there.  Everyone was just so kind and joyful...we couldn't help but enjoy ourselves!

 

It wasn't just Krupa and Kartik's guests that made us feel welcome.  The couple never failed to ask us how we were doing and if we needed anything.  They fed us...twice!  Krupa and Kartik were so sweet the entire day.

 

There ceremony contained so many interesting elements.  The day started with Kartik in one room and Krupa in another.  Then the ceremony continued outside.  We made our way back inside and Krupa and Kartik were then together with their parents and the priests.  There was constant movement, constant change, different people involved in different aspects of the ceremony.  At some points in the ceremony, guests sat down and watched.  At other times, everyone crowded around the bride and groom with their telephones and cameras taking pictures.  At the end of the ceremony, we spent some time taking family pictures.  It was so neat to see how excited everyone was to get a picture with the newlyweds.

 

Krupa and Kartik, we are so thankful that we got to be a part of your wedding celebration!  You both are such kind and thoughtful people and Elena and I are so appreciative of your willingness to let us experience your day with you.  We wish you many years of love and happiness together!

Jena and Stefan's Wedding in Redbud Hall at Texas Old Town in Kyle, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/5/jena-and-stefans-wedding-in-redbud-hall-at-texas-old-town-in-kyle-tx We're so glad that we got to spend a day at Redbud Hall with Jena and Stefan!  They were so kind to us all day long and really went out of their way to make us feel at home.  Jena was a real trooper!  She had a walking boot on her right foot and she stuck with us the entire day.  We were so impressed with her tenacity!  From the moment we showed up, Stefan was busy making sure everything was just right for the wedding...and everything was perfect! 

 

Right before the ceremony started, we found out that we had a new photography assistant.  Stefan's nephew was just about the cutest thing we've seen in a long time.  He had his camera out and he was ready for the ceremony to start.  After their cute ceremony, we spent a few minutes with family.  We then made our way inside to get out of the heat for a bit.  Later in the evening we came back outside with Jena and Stefan (and our new little helper) and took some really cute pictures of the newlyweds.  After that there was cake and dancing.  It was great!

 

Thank you, Jena and Stefan, for choosing us to share in your special day.  We wish you many years of love and happiness together!

Rose and Nick's Wedding at The Addison Grove in Austin, TX https://www.smithphotographykyle.com/blog/2018/4/rose-and-nicks-wedding-at-the-addison-grove-in-austin-tx Rose and Nick are one of our most favorite couples...ever!!!  They are both so kind and sweet and smart and funny...there was never a dull moment with them.  Elena and I both feel like they went out of their way to make us feel welcome on their wedding day!  What an awesome experience it was for us and a great atmosphere for photography!

 

Several weeks prior to their wedding, Elena and I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Rose and her mother and sister taking bridal portraits at Laguna Gloria in Austin.  Her portraits were all so beautiful and we had a great time with her and her family.  On the wedding day, everything was so laidback and relaxed.  Rose and Nick decided to do a first look and we're so glad they did.  It was such a sweet moment for them and their pictures are beautiful!  After their beautiful ceremony, we spent a few minutes finishing up formal pictures and then it was time for the party to start.  The Addison Grove is such a beautiful venue and the reception hall was perfectly decorated.  Dinner was great and the toasts were all very personal and touching.  And then the party started...

 

Rose and Nick's reception was one of the most awesome celebrations we've experienced!  Tim, with Austin Classic DJ, played the perfect mix of music and the dance floor was packed all night.  Towards the end of the reception, the reception really picked up when dancers showed up and mixed with the crowd.  It was so cool to see everyone kick their party into high gear and finish the evening in style!

 

Thank you, Rose and Nick, for being just the perfect couple for us!  Elena and I had such an awesome time with you and wish you both many years of love and happiness together!

Ashley and Steve were just full of smiles all day.  They laughed and kissed and held hands and laughed some more.  It was such a joy to spend the evening with them!  We can't wait to see them both again!

Neda and Clint invited a bunch of friends and family and it was so cool to see so many people come to celebrate their wedding.  From the time the ceremony started until Neda and Clint left at the end of the evening, it was a non-stop party.  Tim with Austin Classic DJ did a fantastic job of keeping everyone on the dance floor and our photo booth was there to provide lots of laughs and silly pictures.  Around sunset, we took Neda and Clint back outside for a few minutes to get some golden hour pictures.  We loved all of their images and were so thankful that they gave us a few more minutes to take pictures!

 

Neda and Clint, thank you so much for including us in your wedding celebration.  We wish you many years of love and happiness together!

Justine and Eric's wedding was perfect!  They decided to do a first look and their pictures were so cute!  Eric's reaction when he turned around and saw Justine was just priceless and we were so glad that we got to capture that moment.  Justine and Eric's ceremony was inside in the beautiful chapel at Canyonwood Ridge.  After the ceremony, we spent a few minutes taking family pictures and then the party started!  Justine and Eric's reception was so much fun!  There was even a break during the reception for one of Eric's favorite things...cotton candy!!!  This was the first time we've ever seen a wedding with a cotton candy vendor and it was such a great idea. 

 

Justine and Eric, thank you so much for being so kind and fun and for making us feel welcome from the very first moment.  We wish you both many, many years of love and happiness!

Ashley and David decided to do a first look.  Their pictures were so cute and we loved having the extra time that a first look allowed for pictures.  We even had the opportunity to do most of Ashley and David's family pictures prior to the ceremony.  It was so nice being able to get so many pictures done early in the day.  Ashley and David's ceremony was beautiful!  After their ceremony, Ashley and David spent the next several hours eating, talking, and celebrating with their friends and family.  No one was in a rush.  It was just a wonderful time of celebration!  At the end of the night, Ashley and David left through a cloud of bubbles!

 

Thank you, Ashley and David, for letting us be part of your special day.  We wish you many, many years of love and happiness together!
