Last minute bookings are always the best! It seems like fate brings us together. :) Sam is seriously the cutest bride!!! She contacted me about 2 months before the actual BIG day. When we showed up to shoot the wedding her and her sister were relaxing at the bar with a glass of wine just getting into the day (yep, she's my girl!) We hung out with them there and then off to the suite to do getting ready pics. My great friend Michael of came and second shot with me. He went and hung with the boys and I stayed with the girls. It was such a fun getting ready session, it was just Sam and her sister and Sam's 2 little girls that are absolutely precious! The ceremony was so sweet and simple and then a fun little reception with an awesome meal (thanks again for inviting us to have dinner with you! uhhh! yeah, it was awesome!!!!) Then we ended with some pics down on 6th street. Sam and Richard don't live in Austin but you can tell their heart is here, I guess that is why we bonded so easily. Here are some of my favorites from the day!

The awesome vendors!
Venue:The Driskill
Florist: Last Petal
Harpist: (Ok, she is awesome! I need to get her info so please check back for an update)

I brought some props from our photo booth to just do an impromptu session, since I knew there would be some kids around and thought they would have fun with them. Yep we all had fun!
