Bird Island Lake Ranch Wedding | Katherine & Austin

December 19, 2017

This is it, my friends! Our final wedding of 2017, and it’s a beauty!! Katherine & Austin began our year with their January engagement session, and close the year out with their wedding day – how blessed we are to work with such an amazing couple!

Katherine & Austin had threats of rain on their wedding day – let’s be real, if you have a wedding in Florida, there’s ALWAYS a threat of rain – but Jon and I could not stop saying how absolutely perfect their day turned out to be! December to February are the months that make us miss living in Florida! Warm but not hot with just a hint of breeze. Would you like me to stop talking about the weather? Okay, I will, but if you haven’t been to Florida in winter, GO!

We loved all the thought and details that went into this wedding – the nods to Austin’s home state of Texas, the reception lined with different stations such as hot drinks, s’mores, writing date night ideas, pictures, all encircling a fire pit and some of the BEST Southern food I’ve tasted in a while! And possibly my favorite touch – Katherine & Austin memorized their vows. Such a simple touch, but this is our fifth season of weddings and I’ve never seen that done before! It added such sweet significance to that moment, and if you are going to memorize ANYTHING about your wedding day – why would you not memorize your vows and be able to call them to mind easily as you begin your life together! I was so impressed and motivated to do the same with mine!

I’m so excited to share our favorites from our final wedding of 2017! Enjoy! Katherine & Austin, we are SO excited for you both! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day!

How PRECIOUS are these monogrammed pajamas for getting ready?!

Daddy first looks are simply beautiful.

We had SIX, count ’em, SIX #jlbrides at this wedding! That deserved a picture!! Three past, one present, and two future!


We are so honored to work with such a talented creative team. Thank you to all for your beautiful work!
