Allison & Matt | Winter Wedding at The Houstonian

Allison & Matt share one of those funny stories the kind you see in the movies where the guy and the girl just keep missing one other. The audience knows they are destined to be together and once their paths finally cross, the sparks will fly and they'll live happily ever after. That is their love story, and it's one for the books. 

On a beautiful January afternoon, Allison & Matt were married inside the beautiful Westminster United Methodist Church in front of their closest family and friends. Their reception at The Houstionian created the perfect urban oasis for a night to remember. Decorated in a beautiful neutral floral palette and organic greens, the ballroom glowed in the romantic candlelight. The live band set the tone for the night as guests enjoyed an evening filled with joy and an abundance of laughter.

We are so thankful to have documented such a beautiful celebration and wish for them nothing short of everlasting happiness. - XO. MJF

Kathryn & Ty | Urban Barn Wedding in Austin

Kathryn & Ty are just the sweetest. Their love story started in 6th grade with a passed note just like the George Strait song "Check Yes or No." 10 years later they came together again, and the rest is history, knowing all along that it would end up this way.  Both of them are fun loving, thoughtful to those who surround them, and devoted to one another (even willing to forgive the other's shortcomings - she's an Aggie, he's a Longhorn).

On a warm November evening, Kathryn & Ty in front of their closest family and friends exchanged marriage vows inside the urban Brodie Homestead. Dark wood, TX limestone, and stunning crystal chandeliers brought a romantic elegance to both the wedding ceremony and reception. The tables were adorned with candlelight and yummy Fall, organic florals completing the look. Their celebration was filled with love and laughter as guests danced into the night ending with a beautiful sparkler exit. 

We are so grateful to be a part of their wedding and wish them a lifetime of happiness. - XO. MJF

Ally & Adam | Organic Backyard Wedding in Austin

Ally & Adam are the genuine article. They share an undeniable sweetness and devotion toward not only one another, but to those fortunate enough to know them. You can see it when they look at each other, and you can feel it when their loved ones raised a glass during the evening's toasts. *Please note: the Father of the Bride's speech is a tearjerker.

On a gorgeous October afternoon In front of their closest family and friends, Ally & Adam made it official in a traditional ceremony at the Central Presbyterian Church in Austin. Striving for more than just a typical reception they worked along with their fabulous wedding planner to create a joyful, unforgettable experience for their guests. And what could be more elegant and personal than a "backyard" inspired reception at the Four Seasons?

With a setting on the banks of Lady Bird Lake, their beautiful wedding reception was an intimate, garden-inspired affair. The tables were adorned with yummy organic, neutral, and peach florals. In attendance was the cutest and furriest guest of honor, A & A's pooch Daisy. Their celebration was one for the books. The evening was filled with laughter and fun as guests danced went well into the night.

We were blessed to work with such a fun, thoughtful pair and we wish them nothing short of a lifetime filled with happiness. - XO. MJF

Samantha & Russell | Romantic Affair at Lost Mission

Samantha & Russell are such a sweet pair. They are both fun, thoughtful and filled with an obvious love for one another. We were fortunate to document their rehearsal dinner the evening prior to their wedding and witness first hand (through laughter and tears) how adored they are by their nearest and dearest. 

The following day, Samantha & Russell in front of their closest family and friends exchanged marriage vows in a service officiated by one of Russell's best friends at Lost Mission in Spring Branch. From there the celebration paired a moody candlelit, romantic dinner with a super fun dance party led by the In10City band that ended with an absolutely magical bubble exit.

Stephanie & Jared share a beautiful story. Having been friends since childhood and reconnecting as adults there is a sweetness that exists between them. Each brings something unique to their partnership- his warmth and her sense of adventure. They are rich in love, family, and friends. On a beautiful evening in October, they wed in an urban glass house near the woods in downtown Houston for a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah adorned with organic florals and Family Heirlooms. The celebration continued with a gorgeous reception under a ceiling of eclectic chandeliers where a live band kept guests dancing well into the night at The Dunlavy.
