Aubony and Ben were married recently at Villa Antonia, in scenic Jonestown, Texas. It was a classic affair with all the perfect
touches. Buttercup yellow was the color of choice for the day and I loved how it was carried throughout. Bridesmaid dresses
and the groom and groomsmens ties, hand crafted yellow poofs lined the aisle, yellow fabric draped the ceremony pergola,
yellow flowers in the bouquets and to top it all off the cupcakes were dotted with yellow frosting. It was lovely.
Here is a list of the folks that helped make the day perfect:
Congratulations Aubony and Ben!
Anna and Tripp were married a few weeks back on a beautiful day in Wimberly, Texas at Old Glory Ranch. The ceremony
took place at sunset alongside a rushing creek underneath enormous cypress trees. After their first kiss as husband and wife,
Anna and Tripp were driven off down a dusty road in the bed of a white vintage truck. So romantic.
The folks at Old Glory were responsible for the beautiful flowers and table arrangements. I loved the use of fruit, gourds and
vegetables that brought the feel of the fall season to the setting. Stardust Pastries did an outstanding job with the cake, and the
gift bags of the french cookies, macarons.
Others that made the evening a success:
and of course all Anna and Tripp’s friends and family
Congratulations Anna and Tripp!
So yes, this was an East Austin backyard wedding, but not just any backyard. This yard belongs to Annie and Dylan. Dylan is
d.crain landscape and construction, and his work is simply fabulous. I have seen work he has done all over town, but some-
thing about his own yard sparkles. Beautifully integrated with the indoor spaces, lush with fruit trees and eclectic with all sorts
of found objects, succulent arrangements and towering structures.
But enough of that, Annie and Dylan got married! I was flattered when they approached me to be their photographer, and even
more excited when they asked me if they can use one of my paintings on their invitation. Wedding day photos started at the
Hotel St. Cecilia, and then onto the house where friendly dogs roamed about and cats slept on beds and the festivities were
Dress was Austin summer casual and cool towels were thoughtfully made available. A wonderfully saturated orange was the
color of the day, used on the invitations, boxes of monogrammed matches and flower leis made of marigolds, that were used during
the ceremony to bond the new family. DJ Manny was there setting the mood, and La Condesa set up, serving some very yummy
food and drinks.
Congratulations Annie and Dylan!
This beautiful bride is Christy. We had the distinct pleasure of being able to photograph her at the Wildflower Center in May.
You might remember her from the blog post I did of her Save the Date card, (http://stellaalesi.com/wordpress/?cat=80). She
and her fiance JC are currently residing in Dubai, but she came back to Austin for this portrait session and to prepare for the
The wedding took place this past weekend at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. If you have never been out there, you really
should make the trip. No matter what time of year it is, it is always beautiful. This was late June, so the echinacea and indian
blankets were blooming.
JC and Christy had a fairly large wedding party, 28 in all including themselves. A good friend served as officiant, and wore
a custom made stole with their names, wedding date and an image of interlocking rings. I loved the seersucker suits the
groomsmen wore, and the adorable, colorful skirts of the bridesmaids dresses. The ceremony took place inside the gallery, which
has a spectacular view of a field of native grasses and large Live Oaks. Keeping with the season Kurant Events served peach
cocktails. They also created a French Fry station; five different kinds of fries with at least as many types of salt. Yummy!
The reception took place in the courtyard with plenty of mingling and dancing. And as a special treat, the groom’s sister and her
band the Boo Who’s, played a few songs, and happily they rocked!
Congratulations Christy and JC!
