A downtown Austin wedding was a must for Sam and Megan. Because Megan had moved from San Diego to Austin, she has a ton of friends and family coming to their wedding from out of town. So these two wanted to give their guests the best Austin has to offer. And to do this, they needed to be in the heart of the city!
They were “in Megan’s favorite spot, in front of the fireplace. While having a glass of wine, playing Yahtzee, and watching television with their furbaby, Barkley, by their side, Sam took the sweet, private moment to propose. Truthfully, he had the ring and just couldn’t wait any longer!”
The Wedding Day
“The Driskill is recognized as a coveted Austin hotel since 1886. It offers a historic setting entrenched in timeless charm. With a prime downtown location off 6th Street, it is surrounded by Austin’s food scene, nightlife, and live music. They’re also less than ten minutes by foot from historic attractions like the Texas State Capitol Building and Congress Avenue Bridge.” A great place for their out-of-town guests to stay and enjoy all the charming Austin attractions!
As for Chateau Bellevue, it’s only a few minutes from the hotel. This makes for an easy commute for them to say their “I do’s.”The crazy thing about this venue is that you’d never know that it is in the heart of the city. It is abnormally quiet and feels so private.
One of the friends was spying on the bride and crew from the outside 😂:
How beautiful are these hanging floral installations by the Spotted Poppy?!
The groom has arrived!
Sam and Megan’s Wedding Ceremony
And so the ceremony begins with one member of the Royal Dukes Band plays the keyboard.
First to come down is the groom, their furbaby, and the officiant, one of their cousins.
Next up: the flower girls. They had everyone giggling because while one would throw down flowers, one behind her would pick them up and put the flowers in their basket.
I don’t know who was more excited to see the bride: the groom or Barkley!
Barkley seemed to think he was the star of the show. He put on every facial expression possible, and was quite theatrical with his body language 😂
With their first kiss as husband and wife, they’re officially married! 🎉
The Newly Weds
Despite the heat, these two made it, and with a smile on their faces! The excitement and love for one another just radiated:
Some of my personal favorites:
One of their favorite spots is this downtown Austin wedding venue’s magnolia tree. So besides getting married under it, they also wanted some of their couples’ portraits here as well.
Let the Party Commence
A little bustling to help Megan move around easier:
And then they are introduced as husband and wife!
Cheers to the happy couple:
Then the Royal Dukes Band came on stage and got the party on the dance floor!
Congratulations to this beautiful couple! It was such a pleasure celebrating with you both!!!
