Special photos of the week


An Exciting Fall | Instagram Inspirations

We got so excited to get to the weekend that we flew past our usual Friday Instagram Inspirations! But we’re not as excited as one of the featured photographs in our roundup of great images from the Austin area, as fall approaches. The groomsmen are clearly too glad that the weekend is here, and we [...]

In Honor of ACL, It’s Time to Dance! | Instagram Inspirations

Considering that it’s one of the two most lively weekends in the Austin area, with Austin City Limits Music Festival starting up, we couldn’t help but want to dance. And our Instagram feed is full of couples who, whether in engagement or reception photos, were feeling the same energy. Between the music and the setting, [...]

Que No Paré La Fiesta

Don’t Stop the Party! | Instagram Inspirations

We’re feeling the Fri-yay excitement at the end of a long week. So, rather than concentrate on all the reasons there might be to not have the greatest weekend ever, we decided to focus on what can happen when everything comes together, despite any obstacle, and fun reigns supreme. No week is so bad a [...]


The Green that Grows After the Rain | Instagram Inspirations

While the recovery effort continues with our neighbors along the coast, some things are slowly returning to normal. The rains have come and gone and, in their place, the world becomes ever greener, lush with growth and beauty. Some normalcy has returned, and with the verdant green everywhere, it seemed there was no better way [...]

Texas Stronger

On Behalf Of Our Beloved Texas | Instagram Inspirations

This past week has been a tough one for our home state. As the rains fell and kept falling, it was as though our heart sank further and further into Hurricane Harvey’s rising waters. Texas, as a whole, was and still remains in shock at the devastation brought to our coastal cities. With each city [...]

Weddings Near The Water

Near the Water | Instagram Inspirations

Creekside, river bank or lake shore – as the mercury climbs through the summer, nothing cools down a summer wedding like the water. Between the deep blues and greens it provides and the cool breezes that seem to always accompany their presence, bodies of water lend so much to the scenery and the mood of [...]

Just Here for the Cake

We’re Just Here for the Cake | Instagram Inspirations

It showed up on a sign from one of our Real Wedding features and we couldn’t have agreed more. Sometimes, as great as the celebration of man and wife may be, we’re just here for the cake. And, with such a signature piece of the wedding celebration as a fixture of nearly every reception, we [...]

We’ve gotten more than a few submissions, and will feature them in the weeks and months to come (don’t forget to include #AustinWeddingDay on your inspiring moments!). This week, here are [...]


Going to the Dogs

They’re members of the family, even if there’s no place at the wedding party table. They don’t even have to match the color scheme to be a vital part of the pictures. It’s our dogs. They’re precious beyond measure, and for a wedding celebration, there’s little reason not to include them on the guest list [...]

A Kiss to Build a Dream On

A Kiss to Build a Dream On

It’s a foregone conclusion, that at the end of nearly every wedding ceremony, the world at large grants permission to the bride and groom to show their love in a moment of unabashed sweetness. “You may now kiss the bride.” As rote as the practice may be, the kiss is never cliché, and should never [...]
