Villa del Lago wedding Austin TX – Krissy & Joe – Austin Wedding Photography

May, 5, 2016 / 0 comments

WOW!  Krissy & Joe’s gorgeous wedding at stunning Villa del Lago was absolutely incredible!  We start with some of Krissy’s bridal portraits around the Villa, followed by the wedding day highlights.

With scenic views of Lake Travis in the background, Krissy & Joe exchanged vows on the beautiful overlook under perfectly sunny skies. 

After the ceremony, it was time for group photos in front of the jaw-dropping waterfall, followed by pictures of the happy couple around the gorgeous villa (are we in Texas or Tuscany?!).   Later that evening, with that gorgeous sunset, we photographed a few more portraits of the happy couple as the sun quickly dipped below the horizon.  Loving friends and family helped the newlyweds celebrate the night away with lots of dancing, followed by a sparkler departure. 

And if you want to become a really good dancer but need dance lessons first, call Krissy’s dad :)

Congratulations, Krissy & Joe!

Published – Maren + Derek – Texas Hill Country Wedding Photography – Monique Lhuillier Wedding Dress – The Knot

May, 2, 2016 / 0 comments

Such a gorgeous Texas Hill Country wedding!  We’re so excited to have it selected for feature publication on The Knot!  Maren & Derek met in Barcelona while working for the same modeling agency.  With Maren’s busy modeling career including features in Vogue and campaigns for Victoria Secret and Alexander Wang, we fast forward several years and now this NYC-based couple is celebrating their beautiful wedding in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country!   Maren’s beautiful dress by Monique Lhuillier was absolutely captivating, so we set aside a few minutes after the ceremony for an impromptu bridal session at dusk.  The magical Texas sky was just perfect with its softly lit hues.  Wonderful families and friends celebrated the night away under a classic starlit night, capped off with a sparkler and antique Jaguar departure.   Travel tip:  The next time you’re in Brooklyn, be sure to visit Derek’s restaurant The Heyward (you gotta love his groom’s cake featured below!).   Congratulations, Maren & Derek!
