stacy+matt – the plantation house 05.22.10

Stacy and Matt had a super sweet wedding at the The Plantation House with the ceremony at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church in Pflugerville this past weekend. Stacy has to be one of the most relaxed brides I have ever seen and Matt has to be one of the most down to earth men I have ever met… THESE TWO are perfect together.  Stacy and her mom did such an amazing job with all the details and I loved the colors. You’ll have to come see the CANDY BAR on the next post. I do have to honestly say I missed Latte… THANKS for all the trust I hope you LOVE these photos as much as I do!

cecelia+eric – vintage villas austin wedding 05.08.10 Part2

When I was thinking of what to write about Cecelia and Eric the first thing I thought of was what an amazing laugh Cecelia has and how cute it is that she sticks out her tongue when she’s excited. Eric is not only one of the most down to earth men I have even met he is also truly in love with his bride and he’s not afraid to show it. I had an amazing time at their wedding… why… because once again I was reminded how lucky I am to have this wonderful job. I wish you guys only the BEST!!! You are genuinely amazing and I’m extremely lucky to have been a part of your day! I’m in love with these photos and as I was editing them I felt soooo happy the rain just teased us, Thanks for everything and THANKS to Stephanie from BZ Events! Here is a link to their engagement photos and a link to the wedding and reception photos or you can just scroll down.
