As soon as Courtney and Ryan left our house after their wedding consultation, Elena and I turned to each other and said, "They are so sweet and so cute! Their wedding will be a piece of cake!" A few weeks later, Elena and I were sitting in church at First Baptist Church San Marcos and Elena pointed at a couple sitting in front of us and said, "I think they are our clients." Sure enough, it was Courtney and Ryan! It's a good thing Elena and I were behaving ourselves. :-) It was very nice to see them again.
When we arrived at Sage Hall, we found Courtney in her room getting her hair done. She and her bridesmaids were all so quiet and calm (at least on the outside). Our job is so much easier when we get to work with brides like Courtney! Ryan and the groomsmen showed up and they were joking and laughing with each other the entire time. There was such a positive atmosphere at this wedding and we loved being a part of it!
Courtney and Ryan did such a great job of scheduling their day. They chose to do first look pictures. They met each other on one of the bridges outside of Sage Hall. The staff at Texas Old Town does such a great job of making sure that the grounds always look fantastic. The bridges scattered around the property are all such a great place for pictures. Courtney and Ryan's first look was cute...and emotional! That's just the way it should be. After their pictures together, we had plenty of time to take almost every single family picture before the ceremony. It was so nice to have all of the 'official' stuff taken care of before the ceremony. After they were officially hitched, all we had left was just a couple of pictures and then it was on to the reception.
Andy with Austin Classic DJ was on hand to ensure that Courtney and Ryan's reception was tons of fun. He did a great job of keeping everyone on the dance floor all night. At one point, we stole Courtney and Ryan from their reception and went and took some really cool sunset pictures. We were so thankful that they agreed to give us a few more minutes to take these pictures. They turned out really great!
Courtney and Ryan, thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding! We had a wonderful time with you both and wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
