This Austin wedding has it all: the perfect love story, a gorgeous couple, amazing friends and family, good food, and an epic party! What more could a couple ask for?!
First Comes Love, Then Comes Engagement ….
Remember how Megan and Jameson met? No? Well, head back over to my post on their Zilker Park engagement session to read about it here.
After meeting, these two both just knew they were meant for each other. So while they were visiting family in Minnesota, Jameson popped the question.
During a snow storm, the two came in from the freezing weather. Jameson bent down to help Megan take off her snow-covered boots. He began telling her how much he loved her and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. And, with her mom, dad, siblings, and best friend as witnesses, he asked for her hand in marriage.
Now they’re ready to take the next step and get married at their Austin wedding!
Lilac and Champagne Austin Wedding
November 13th, 2021: Megan and Jameson’s big day. All of their lilac and champagne visions and wedding planning are finally coming together. But, more importantly, they are going to become Mr. and Mrs.!
These two attend church services at Riverbend Church so it was only appropriate that they had their first look and wedding ceremony here.
Their First Look:
I love that they gave each other twirls so they could really take each other all in!
The dapper groom rocking the textured suit and lilac bow.
Have you seen a more beautiful bride?!
We interrupt the stunning couple’s portraits for family and wedding party pictures …
Jameson gave all of his groomsmen matching sunglasses and watches. So, of course, they had to sport them on the wedding day!
The Riverbend Remembrance and rose gardens was the perfect backdrop. With the roses in full bloom, it provided a really cool contrast to the Fall weather. The Autumn leaves were beginning to turn and fall off the trees, while the roses were lush and full of life. It was definitely the dreamiest spot for Megan and Jameson’s portraits.
And they’re off to prepare for their “I do’s.”
Austin Wedding Ceremony
Since they didn’t need the whole, gigantic Riverbend church for the amount of guests that were attending, they opted for the cute and intimate chapel instead. It couldn’t have been more perfect!
Despite having a first look prior to the ceremony, Jameson couldn’t hold back his tears when Megan walked down the aisle with her two fathers. I absolutely love the sweet moment when Megan wiped the tear off his cheek.
“The wedding sand ceremony, which is also referred to as a unity sand ceremony, is a wedding tradition wherein two small vessels of sand are poured into a third vessel.” (Wedding Frontier)
The Newlyweds’ Reception
After the happy couple officially became husband and wife, we made our way to the Austin Marriott North. The newly renovated hotel had all the components that Megan and Jameson wanted for their lilac and champagne wedding.
And the wedding party has arrived:
Time for their special dances:
Megan shared sweet dances with both of her fathers.
Jameson and his mother’s turn!
And ended the special dances with an anniversary dance to celebrate her mom and stepfather’s anniversary:
Toasting to the happy couple!
Megan’s talented sister designed and baked their wedding cake. I love when couples include intimate and personal details!
Time to Partayyyyyy!
Taking a break from the dancing, the married couple decided to include a few other traditions: the shoe game and the bouquet and garter toss:
What Jameson didn’t know was that he was about to get iced!
It was an absolute dream of a wedding to be a part of! Thank you, Megan and Jameson, for allowing me to be a part of it!! Congratulations on your union and wishing you both the most amazing life together!
