Tiffany and Mat’s Chateau Bellevue wedding was exactly what the couple wanted: an intimate celebration followed by an epic party!
Tiffany and Mat met seven years ago. His cousin married one of Tiffany’s good friends. At that wedding, Tiffany and Mat danced together and Mat later asked Tiffany for her number. Shortly after, they moved in together. Then two years later, they moved from Chicago to Austin.
During a recent family photo shoot, Mat got down on one knee and asked Tiffany to marry him. And now they’re ready to tie the knot at their Chateau Bellevue wedding.
Happy Wedding Day
Because most of Tiffany and Mat’s friends and family are from out of town, they chose Chateau Bellevue for its location. They wanted their friends and family to not only be able to celebrate their wedding day with them, but also to see downtown Austin as well.
The day has finally come. Tiffany and Mat got ready at their own places and headed over to the venue separately.
At Chateau Bellevue, Tiffany’s two sisters and mother helped her get into her grandmother’s original wedding gown.
Hairspray was constantly sprayed onto the gown to try to keep the lace from falling apart.
When Tiffany’s grandmother arrived onsite, she helped the bride finish getting ready in her wedding dress.
To Have and To Hold …
Family and friends gather to watch Tiffany and Mat say their vows.
Mat literally jumped from behind the doors and into the ceremony site, in true Mat-style.
Moments later, the doors swung open and Tiffany stepped out. She took a moment to take it all in. With a huge smile on her face, she ran to the end of the aisle to meet her groom.
And they’re officially married!
One request that Tiffany made was to capture a huge group picture of everyone at the wedding:
Followed by family portraits:
Couples’ Portraits around Chateau Bellevue
After Tiffany changed into her reception gown, we walked around the venue for their portraits.
I love Chateau Bellevue so much. Not only for its history, but because of all of its backdrops. There isn’t one spot that isn’t beautiful!

The moment these two have been waiting for … their party!
For the last hour, everyone was given headphones for the silent disco. With these headphones, they could choose from three different stations and rock out to their own party. Or join another group with the same station/headphone color as you!
Congratulations, Tiffany and Mat! Thank you so much for allowing me to celebrate with you and capture all your sweet (and epically fun) memories!
