Short & Sweet Chapel Dulcinea Elopement

Last weekend I shot an elopement at the Chapel Dulcinea at the Wizard School. It's a free wedding venue provided by the oddly named business school - a beautiful open air chapel sitting on the edge of a cliff. Click to enlarge images.

Chapel Dulcinea is beautiful and overlooks Texas hill country.

As you approach Chapel Dulcinea, you follow a winding path through beautiful landscaping.

It's tradition for couples to ring the chapel bell immediately after getting married.

This signifies that another marriage has been performed at Chapel Dulcinea.

Sophia & Danny - Colorful Bookish Anthropology Wedding in San Marcos

Danny & Sophia's wedding was a very personal, very special celebration. From their ceremony location - their home, filled to the brim with bookshelves and sweet artwork - to their special family hug during the ceremony, everything was infused with their individual personalities. Danny's love of cameras was represented through the many Instax prints and Sophia's anthropology background showed in their choice of dessert - an anatomically correct chocolate skull - complete with flower crown. Click to enlarge.

Kera & Travis - Colorful Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center Wedding

I photograph a lot of weddings, so I don't usually get super emotional during the ceremony. But I cried happy tears when Kera & Travis got married - and I'm just the photographer! Typically quiet Travis shouting "I LOVE YOU" at the top of his lungs just did me in - there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Kera & Travis had one of the most personal weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing. Every detail was infused with their personalities, from the custom cake topper that Kera made herself to the bluesy music they wove throughout the day. Click to enlarge.

Ashley & Mai - Harry Potter Forest Wedding in Austin, TX

Ashley & Mai's love for Harry Potter and all things magical is only surpassed by their love for each other, as it is easy to see in their lifestyle portraits taken in their home (and featuring Ally the cat). They had an intimate wedding ceremony (just the two of them!) in a natural setting in north Austin on the most beautiful evening. Their improvised vows were said from the heart, and you can easily read the joy and happiness in their eyes. Click to enlarge.
