Austin, Texas | A Romantic Day in the Texas Hilltops | Richard and Caitlin

We started our day off at bride Caitlin's Parent's home in the hills of Jonestown, Texas.  The drive on the way to their home is a gorgeous drive, sprinkled with expansive views of the river.  The bride and bridesmaids spent the morning together in the guest house.  There were mimosas and breakfast pastries and everyone laughed and talked about their memories together.  The morning was full of soft light from the large windows and the view out of the back patio was breathtaking.  Caitlin's mother and bridesmaids assisted her in putting on her gown.  A beautiful spring gown with a mixture of lace and tulle.  She put on her wedding shoes, necklace, and earrings and her wedding party helped with the remaining touches.  

Richard waited patiently in the yard overlooking the river.  Rain trickled down softly on his transparent umbrella and he smiled with anticipation.  When his bride emerged his smile grew even larger.  Their first look was a romantic meeting beneath two umbrellas.  The groom was sure to keep both umbrellas covering his bride as he marveled at how beautiful she was.  Her natural blonde curls were set in place and her dress was flawless.  He whispered lovingly about how beautiful she was in the soft spring light.  Her bridesmaids and groomsmen looked on from the windows as the couple shared their first moments together before the wedding.  

We made our way to the Villa Antonia to prepare for the ceremony.  We spent some time photographing the bride and groom together.  We barely had to pose them.  The couple was so wonderfully in love and the shoot went smoothly.  The wedding ceremony was performed in the venue's chapel.  The bride and groom wrote their own vows.  Each vow was so thoughtful and well written.  The crowd was full of teary-eyed and sniffling patrons.  The remainder of the evening went smoothly.  The couple shared a slice of cake and spend hours dancing with their closest friends and family.  Their final song of the night was Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and they made their grand exit in a tunnel of guests wielding golden sparklers.
