South Austin Elopement
How adorable are these two lovebirds? When Beth contacted me about photographing their surprise elopement, I was so excited to have the opportunity to slow down + be a part of such an intimate ceremony. Rather than have an extravagant affair, Beth + Devon decided it would better suit their personalities to have a more intimate wedding, so they eloped. They chose the cutest south austin bungalow that they found on Airbnb. The house was modernly decorated with touches of vintage quirkiness that matched their own style perfectly. They fell in love with the studio where they decided to have their ceremony. The space had so much natural light and Beth said it reminded her of a “little chapel”. One of my favorite things Beth shared was how her first crush was on Abraham Lincoln + wouldn’t you know it, her little “chapel” had a portrait of Abe sweetly looking over her shoulder as she married Devon. They toasted one another with Benjamin Franklin’s favorite cocktail, Milk Punch. Beth loved the history behind the cocktail since she herself spent many years in England. In lieu of wedding cake, we took a walk down to Gourdough’s for some tasty wedding doughnuts. Beth also made her own bouquet using dried flowers from a shop on etsy.
This South Austin Elopement is one of my favorites. I hope you love it as much as I do! Thank you B+D so much for having me!
