Austin Wedding Photography | Shane and Madi's beautiful outdoor wedding

Shane and Madi have a fun story of how they met. They both found each other through mutual friends and finally made a date happen while out having fun in a local bar in Austin. They both love to have fun and spend time with their close friends. Madi has one of the sweetest sisters ever and they are great friends. Madi had to be convinced but after some time Shane was able to win her over. Their fun unique style was evident on their wedding day. They decided to have an outdoor evening Austin wedding under the oak's at the Hill's Cafe. Hills cafe in Austin has been a staple of Texas since 1947 with a rich history that goes back much further. It's a fun venue known for showing some of Texas best country music stars. This set the perfect scene for the beginning of Shane and Madi's beautiful life together.

They started getting ready, each in their own rooms, at the Omni Hotel downtown Austin surrounded by their closest friends and family.

Her beautiful dress was hand picked at the Blushing Bridal Lounge here in Austin.

Florals were handmade by King Florist / Austin Flower Market

I absolutly love Madi's Necklace and Earings! She chose them from Olive and Piper. After the ceremony she removed her veil and wore her necklace as a beautiful jeweled headpiece.

Madi had Shane's pocket watch engraved before their day.

Shane and Madi wanted to keep traditional alive and not see each other before the ceremony. They decided to take photos before the sun went down at one of their favorite spots in Austin. Butler Park. Outside it was very cold since a rare cold front came in that afternoon. We did our best to stay warm as the wind kept a chill in the air. We photographed the men first, so as not to ruin the surprise. Then the ladies came after.

They all had a moment where they looked at each other and said "sunglasses on?" while they all nodded in agreement and said "yeeeah.. Sunglasses on!"

I loved seeing Madi's beatuiful smile on her wedding day. Her sister kept her laughing and smiling about their inside jokes. She helped us all keep our minds off how cold the wind was.

We were happy to head to the ceremony where we could all get a little warmer.

The sun had started to set as everyone was ready to start the ceremony.

Priceless moment of the Grooms face as he see's his bride for the first time.

Since they both met in a bar, both in the past were bartenders, hey decided to have a unique unity ceremony by making a their own cocktail. They call it the Shadi!

One special thing about an evening wedding is to be able to photograph with sparklers. Their coordinator and I surprised them with this photograph. We asked them to just trust us. Madi told me it was Shanes favorite photo of all. We weren't going to let the wind and cold keep us from such a special moment.

Order the Shadi
