I’ve always said it’s the couple that makes the wedding. When a bride + groom put their individual touches into the details of their day, it’s always special. Wenny + Stephen poured their hearts + souls into this wedding. I’m so happy I had the privilege to be there! These two choose to have a destination wedding right here in Austin. They currently live in New York (check out their fun Lower East Side engagement session here) and wanted to come back to the place they met. With so many amazing DIY details, this wedding has a modern, artistic edge. The bride + groom began the day with a traditional tea ceremony at The W Hotel in downtown Austin and later moved to The Allan House for the modern wedding ceremony. It was heartwarming to see all of their family + friends celebrate them.
