Lauren and Jon’s casual Austin wedding was filled with Texas Hill Country charm. The couple said “I do” beneath the large, twisting branches that have become a highlight of Mercury Hall weddings. Mercedes Morgan Photography captured every romantic detail, from Lauren’s curly up-do to the handmade crepe paper bouquets in shades of blush, coral, and fuchsia.
Lauren and Jon
Mercury Hall, Austin, Texas
I think the unofficial theme of the wedding was casual elegance, if you can call that a theme! We were getting married at a modern venue with a bit of an Austin Hill Country vibe. It was the perfect amount of comfortable yet classic. My mom made all the wedding and ceremony flowers by hand from crepe paper; this was an incredibly meaningful and elegant touch.
We hired a local group called Typewriter Rodeo that types custom poems on the spot based on any prompt. The poems were uniquely personal and memorable keepsakes for my guests. I was happy that so many people mentioned how much they enjoyed the personalized poems and what a sweet idea it was.
Also, I LOVED when Jon and I got in the middle of a dance circle and tore it up to “Uptown Funk.”
The Couple Recommends:
I would certainly recommend Mercedes Morgan Photography for being so easy to work with, keeping me calm, and producing fantastic work that speaks for itself. I didn’t have to worry about them capturing the right shot, I had absolute faith.
I would also highly recommend Mandy Millican with Modern Whimsy Events. She is organized and on top of everything, not to mention she also offers a wedding day yoga package for bride and bridesmaids which was glorious and really set the calm tone for the day.
