Fun Austin Wedding: Kim + Robbie – Part 1

bride and groom

Kim + Robbie’s wedding is pure fun! They love  being in the moment with each other, and their favorite memories are their parties – being surrounded by friends + music! Pair that with rad design by Jesi Haack Design and awesome photos by Studio Castillero and they had one big amazing party!

Here’s what Kim said about their vision, “Our wedding was our party, so how could we make it as bomb as possible? If we thought it was crazy, we did it. We made it Napoleon Dynamite themed; dinosaurs roamed the tables; my bridesmaids wore sequined chevron dresses; we burst through a giant heart as our entrance; we passed around shots for our toast. We did everything and anything that made it feel like us. We’re not a traditional couple, so we concentrated on giving our guests a rad party to remember.”

Surprisingly, my favorite moment of the day was the ceremony and our vow exchange. It's always been difficult for me to express my feelings, so the thought of expressing my love for Robbie in front of a crowd was especially daunting. On our day though, I felt so much absolute love and appreciation, it was refreshing to be completely vulnerable and to show our love to our families and friends.

Lavender Wedding Inspiration

Designer Malvina created this gorgeous lavender inspired shoot at a French Country estate – well, it’s actually at Lakewinds Country Manor in Ontario Canada, but it feels like France! She imagined a wedding where guests would stroll through the wooded grounds (champagne flute in hand) to a bountiful display of local cheese and meats. After that they would then come upon a gorgeous dessert display. And can we talk about the vine adorned swing the bride is relaxing on?! So dreamy…

Here’s what Malvina had to say, “The intoxicating smell of the lavender, the wooden pergola dripping with wisteria, gorgeous birdcages overflowing with flowers and the antique silver candelabras create a setting where the guests know they will not want for anything. This shoot is about natural beauty, enjoying the summer, awesome local food and ultimately Canadian chicks dreaming of Provence….”

Malibu Nature Preserve Wedding: Ashley + Brad

wedding signs

Ashley grew up collecting tadpoles and going on hikes as a kid. When she and her fiancé Brad decided to wed near Los Angeles, they hoped to find an outdoor venue with the same whimsical vibe as Ashley’s childhood stomping grounds. :) The Malibu Nature Preserve was just that! While it’s located just off the Pacific Coast Highway, it feels miles and miles away from the typical LA venues.

Here’s what Ashley said, “I tried to foster an environment that was familiar and honest. So I used basic materials like paper, metal, wood, glass and cement as my base design elements for DIY projects. Found branches, pinecones and moss coupled with folksy patterned fabrics adorned the tables, adding texture and color.”

Thanks so much to Amanda K Photography for the lovely photos!
