Prospect House Wedding | Jillian + Joshua

Q:  How did you meet?

A:  Josh and I met through Austin Sports & Social. My company pulled together a kickball team, and I worked with one of Josh's high school classmates. Turns out, not all our trusty co-workers showed up for our first game, so we needed extra players to avoid forfeiting. My co-worker called a couple of his buddies, including Josh, to come play on our team. We all went out to celebrate the victory of our first game. Josh and I shared a moment at the jukebox at Pour House (R.I.P Pour House) and over some Mexican martinis at Trudy's, and the rest is history.

Q:  Tell us about your wedding details

A:  Prospect House was the second venue we toured, and we knew as soon as we walked in, we were getting married there. The feeling was similar to how we felt when we walked into the home we ended up purchasing together. We assumed that if we got married in the hill country, we'd have to go the rustic barn house route. Prospect House is a beautiful juxtaposition - a modern, architectural masterpiece in the middle of the hill country, so it was the best of both worlds for us.

Q: What was your favorite part of the wedding day?

A: Our favorite part of the wedding, by far, was our first look. An hour before our ceremony, Josh and I saw each other and read our vows in private, while my girlfriends and our mothers peeked from a distance. I walked up behind Josh and embraced him. The moment I wrapped my arms around him, I felt a sigh of relief and felt as if we might float away together. The day-of nerves are inevitable, and we both felt them all melt away as soon as we came together. Not to mention, the photos during this emotional exchange were priceless.

"Lisa did an amazing job capturing our wedding. We didn't provide a shot list, and we got everything we wanted and more. She's truly an artist, and we'd recommend her a million times over."

Thank you Jillian and Joshua for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

The Prairie | Julia + Hank's Wedding

Q:  How did you meet?

A:  "We met the first week of college at a party and were immediately drawn to each other. We remained good friends for a couple years and started dating at the end of our Sophomore year. We have been together for almost 7 years :)"

Q:  Tell us about your wedding details.

A:  "We knew we wanted a destination wedding in a small town so everyone would be together the entire weekend and it would be a little retreat for our guests. I knew the Prairie by Rachel Ashwell was the one when I saw the amazing white barn and an open field to the side of it, perfect for our outdoor ceremony. I liked that it was in the country side but still had an elegance to it as Rachel Ashwell is the queen of shabby chic. I loved the juxtaposition of the classic feel in a southern setting. It was truly a dream and our vendors did an amazing job!

Q:  Tell us something funny about the event or the two of you.

A:  "We waited until after our wedding reception to fill out the wedding certificate...but everyone was too intoxicated to figure it out. It turned into a dilemma of everyone trying to read it and tell us what to sign but it sounded like gibberish to all of us at that point. We signed it in the morning :)"

Q:  Anything else you'd like to add?

A:  "Lisa Woods and her assistant did the most amazing job capturing our wedding day. There are so many good pictures we are having trouble picking out our favorite ones for our wedding album!"
