Austin is known for its music festivals and talented graphic arts scene, so when Brian and Marsha decided to get married, they pulled their wedding inspiration from Marsha’s favorite Austin City Limits poster. After contacting the same artist, Writ Large, the couple was able to design a poster that stood as the theme for their wedding. Bright, warm florals dressed Brazos Hall, creating the perfect scenery for the couple to exchange vows. And, making this an all-around awesome Austin wedding, Jake Holt Photography captured incredible photos of the newly married couple!
Brian and Marsha
Brazos Hall, Austin, Texas
Our love for one another can best be expressed through a soundtrack. So, in a way, we created our own “music festival” of sorts. In 2012, I purchased an Austin City Limits Music Festival Poster. I loved the artwork, and we built much of our home décor around the poster. About 1 year before the wedding, I decided I wanted to contact the artist who had created this poster. Andy Gregg and I worked on creating a wedding poster together, and as the poster was created, so was the wedding around it.
We didn’t want the night to end, and when it came time to leave, all of our family and friends gathered outside to give us a sparkler send-off. All of the dearest people in our lives, their faces brilliantly lit for us to see, we made our way through the tunnel of fire and out to where my Dad was waiting to drive us away in his 1967 Green Pontiac Firebird. The top was down, we climbed into the car, and I looked back at all of our loved ones and yelled “I want to do this every weekend!!” – as we made our way down 4th street, we all began to cry. As we turned south onto Congress, I looked back at the Capitol and it began to rain. Cold pissing rain. And it was beautiful.
