We can't believe Sarah + Ryker's wedding has already happened --it doesn't seem like it was that long ago that we met them in our office on South Congress. The bride and groom had just traveled into Austin to celebrate Thanksgiving, and so we were all in a cheery holiday mood as we sat down to chat with them about their wedding. From our very first conversations with them, what stuck out to us about this couple is their joyfulness--Sarah is always smiling and Ryker has the kind of comedic timing that would steal the show of any hollywood blockbuster. It was no surprise to us that their wedding weekend featured some of the wittiest speeches from the father of the bride and Ryker himself. From their Texas style BBQ rehearsal dinner feast at County Line on 2222 to their Hill Country ceremony and downtown reception at Brazos Hall, this wedding was a sweet buffet of the tastes of Austin. While we are finishing the edit of their full wedding video in our studios, please enjoy this sneak peek of the first moments!
The bride and groom both got ready at Omni Barton Creek Resort. The abundance of natural light in the suites at Barton Creek was perfect for showing off the beautiful textures and details in the wedding dress. A blushing bride's face and skin just seems to glow so much more in natural light! Because their wedding was coordinated and designed by Brock + Co, we already knew we were going to experience a gorgeous visual feast at Brazos Hall. The historic warehouse was converted into a romantic, rustic ballroom with a hammered bronze dance floor that reflected the light of the chandeliers as Ryker and Sarah danced their first dance as husband and wife. Guests gathered around farm-style banquet tables that were laden with stunning gold-dipped crystal. The rustic wooden columns were draped with pink and cream linens, and the bride wore a flower crown as she mingled with guests. It was breathtaking! Sarah + Ryker met at Texas Christian University (Go Horned Frogs!), and so the couple was quick to celebrate TCU at their wedding any chance they had! The groom wore a secret TCU shirt under his tuxedo, and because he competed as an athlete on the swim team, his groom's cake was the envy of any TCU pinterest board---a custom cake of a TCU horned frog with swimming goggles.
