This Austin winery wedding, celebrating two authentically amazing souls, is everything! Not only was the weather absolutely perfect, but so was the couple, their wedding party, family and friends, and wedding venues!
About the Couple
Connor: “a very big, loving, goofy” man.
Stephanie: “a bit more reserved and quiet” resulting in Connor bringing out her fun side, and her bringing out his responsible side.
A very balanced couple!
“When we first started dating, we went on a lot of Pokemon Go dates. Now we do almost everything together. We run/workout together, watch TV, play games on the Switch, shop, hike, and explore together. Concerts are big with us, too.”
How it Began …
“Having met in high school, we weren’t really friends at that time. However, we met back up after college in 2015 at the Firefly Music Festival through mutual friends. We hit is off and dated long distance for a few months before Stephanie moved closer to Connor. Picture ‘New Girl.’ That’s how we lived for an entire year, with Stephanie, Connor, and his three guy roommates.”
She Said Yes!
Although they designed the ring together, Stephanie wasn’t sure when Connor would propose. It happened on their last night in NYC. After a long day of packing, they booked a nice room with a terrace. After unwinding with some whiskey on the rooftop, Connor popped the question. Ten hours later, the newly engaged couple boarded a flight with their cats and moved to Colorado.
Austin Winery Wedding Ceremony
The day has finally come for Stephanie and Connor to get married! And we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!
Let’s start at the beginning with a few detail photos:
Never underestimate the power of the smallest details …
These girls were so laid back. When I walked in, they were all just calmly sitting around the house, some having their hair and makeup done, others just chatting about the day to come. It’s a rare sight to see the ladies (and the bride’s dad) this calm on a wedding day!
Beautiful gown, cute boots, and epically cool socks!
If you know me, you know that I’m a fur and feather baby fan. So when I saw these two cuties walking around the property, I had to get their portraits!
Fly Rides to the rescue to transport everyone to and from each venue:
Once at the ceremony location, the two headed out for their first look:
I.am.obsessed! How beautiful are Stephanie and Connor?!

Someone is feeling good … 😂😂😂
Stephanie gifted her gals with these beautiful bracelets. This shot reminds me of Captain Planet!
And down the aisle they go!
The flower girl and guys made the best grand entrance with their cool fanny packs, and had everyone laughing. I’m loving this new trend of asking close adult friends to be their flower gang!
Can we take a moment to appreciate Amy from Eclipse Event Co. working behind the scenes? She and her team are the absolute best! Looking for a planner and/or designer for your day? I highy recommend them!!
But back to the wedding:
Seriously, this Austin winery wedding ceremony set-up is ah-mazing!
Oh yeah … loving the fist-pumps exchanged by the fathers:
Sunset photos? Yes, please! Especially with those colors 😍
Mercer Dance Hall Reception
After Stephanie and Connor said their “I do’s,” they headed over to Mercer Dance Hall for their reception:
The newlyweds wedding cake was made by the bride’s Nana, a tradition in their family. And what a beautiful job she did!
The cake-topper is everything and such a fun touch to represent Stephanie and Connor’s personalities!
Connor couldn’t wait to get into the cake!
Luckily, Stephanie got there just in time to help cut the cake before Connor could start without her 😆
But nothing could stop him from face-planting the plate, inhaling the piece of cake they cut together 😂
**Don’t worry. He saved her a small bite and made sure to share before they headed out to the dance floor! Now that is true love!**
And now, it’s time to partayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Just like that, the celebration ends and the newlyweds are off to live their married lives. Congratulations to the happy couple and best wishes on all the love and journeys you’ll have together!
