These creative New Yorkers planned their wedding in Austin in a very personal way. For their reception at the Austin Country Club they used the names of all the special streets signs from NYC (where they had lived and met, etc..) ..for the table displays- they also used cute little frames with the street names as place markers to show their guest where to sit! The drinks- margaritas & martini's!
My favorite was Essex street on the Lower East Side. We lived on Rivington Street for 10 years(both our girls were born there!)
They also had milk and cookies for their guests to take for their drive home!
Richard & Julie were married at St. Austin on the drag- Julie and her siblings all went to UT. The grooms friends and family all came down from New Jersey- we fell in love with his sister and her adorable twins- Maggie and June Carter.
But the funniest part was when the bride threw her bouquet- Jeff and I usually get in two different positions so we can capture all the action- I was photographing the bridesmaid' s reactions when the bride threw her beautiful but heavy black calla lilies , the wet bouquet splashed down between my legs - a new occupational hazard.
Congratulations Richard & Julie!
