This Springdale Station wedding in Austin, Texas was the perfect day.
Being a wedding photographer is my dream job, and I truly love every wedding I get to photograph. Rebecca and Claudia’s boho Springdale Station wedding in Austin, Texas was absolutely perfect! It was so obvious that the couple was completely in love and enjoying their day, and those feelings were infectious to everyone who was there. In the words of the brides themselves, “We felt peaceful, happy, and most importantly present. Even though we expected it (but it’s by no means guaranteed,) we the brides had the most fun at our wedding!”
- Tell us about your wedding!
Honestly, it was a perfect day. I know all brides say that, but it really, truly was. We felt peaceful, happy, and most importantly present. We wanted to have an experience where the people we love the most could get a glance at the world we’ve created for each other. The ceremony was filled with both meaning and tradition: Rupi Kumar’s words really resonated with us, as much as the more transitional texts. The music made us smile, as did all the white, yellow, and orange flowers. Things felt green, and whole. It was a FUN wedding, where our friends never left the dance floor! And even though we expected (but it’s by no means a guarantee), the brides had the most fun at their wedding.
2. What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?
There were all these moments – turning to see each other at the alter. Whispering little things during the ceremony to each other, walking out to Real Love, getting mobbed by our friends and then chastised caused they all cried! And to top it off, dancing was unforgettable – even more so when we busted out in our suits!
3. Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
Wedding planning is hard. It is NOT a joyful time – it tests a relationship in the ways only a year long project can. We felt like we were doing everything wrong, until we finally spoke up to our other engaged friends and realized they were having a hard time too. So all I would say is that it’s ok for it to be difficult. It’s ok to feel overwhelmed by the choices, your families, even your partner. But once you’ve accounted for as many possibilities as you can, you have to let it go. We stopped worrying the Wednesday before – just quit all decision making. And it allowed us to feel calm, and present in just experiencing our special weekend.
