What would you do if your wedding officiant never showed up? It happened to one of our #EurekaBrides, Ashley, and this is what she had to say: We also had a very unique situation arise moments before our ceremony that the first look was a lifesaver for - our officiant didn't show up. It was 10 minutes prior to guests being seated & we had to make the decision as to who would marry us and how we would proceed. If we hadn't seen each other and hadn't planned to prior to the ceremony, that would have made this situation so much more tense. However, since the first look was already behind us, we were able to visit face to face in the bridal suite and calmly come up with the plan that one of the ordained groomsmen would step in as the minister and marry us! I would have been so upset if we had to navigate that without being able to talk in person, but thanks to Mylah and her love for first looks, it was barely even a hiccup in our day! Her and Zach's wedding at The Terrace Club is featured on Austin Wedding Day and you don't want to miss how else the groomsmen added so much JOY to the day! It's one GREAT wedding day surprise that I will never forget!
When visiting Italy two summers ago, Zach got down on one knee and asked Ashley to be his wife. She said yes and the two tied the knot this past Fall at The Terrace Club. Today, their gorgeous corral and navy wedding is being featured on Austin Wedding Day! Their bridesmaids dresses are some of my favorites! They're the perfect blend of tulle and glam!

Can I tell you a secret? I used to not love bridal sessions... I know, right? I feel like that shouldn't be allowed if you're a wedding photographer in the South, but it was true. I wasn't a fan of them for various reasons, but my mind has been CHANGED! Bridal sessions are a fun time to play in your dress! It's probably your all-time favorite dress and likely always will be! Yes, we'll get a few shots of you in your dress on the wedding day, but they won't be anything like what you'd get at a bridal session! If you don't believe me, click the link in profile to check out Haley's bridal session at The Plantation House in Pflugerville. It's one of my all-time favorite bridal sessions and it won't take you long to see why! She got to play with her dress, see how her wedding day look would come together, and had a test run with her wedding day hair and make-up!
