Melanie and Austin were referred to us by Crystal with Crystal Occasions, one of our favorite wedding coordinators. They were planning a super fun wedding at TerrAdorna, one of Austin’s most unique wedding venues. The bride and the groom were both working at Disney World over the summer when they booked us, so we didn’t get a chance to meet them until a couple months before the wedding. Having met at UT, Melanie and Austin make a such sweet couple. They are both such creative people, and we knew the wedding was going to reflect that. The wedding turned out to be SO much fun! Everyone was in such a lighthearted move when we got there, as you can see from the getting ready pictures. You definitely need a selfie stick to take a picture of eight bridesmaids with a cell phone! Good thing we were there to take some pictures too! Besides a pretty intense wind, the weather was perfect. This was our first time photographing a wedding at TerrAdorna, and we loved exploring the venue. The touching ceremony was performed by one of their good friends and brought tears to quite a few eyes including mine. They not only professed their love for each other, but they professed their devotion to Christ in a beautiful, winsome way. It was all hugs and smiles after the ceremony, then came a fabulous Italian feast from Mandola’s and ice cream from Amy’s Ice Creams. After that the party really got started thanks to Greenbelt DJ. But the highlight of the evening was definitely the guests slamming Melanie and Austin with this fantastic turquoise and yellow biodegradable ecofetti. It brought back fond memories of shaking bird seed out of my gibson girl updo on my honeymoon. We wish Melanie and Austin a lifetime of happiness together!
