While backpacking through the Guadalupe Mountains with some of their best friends, Andrew got down on one knee and asked Lisa to be his adventure partner for life. Loving the outdoors, the couple wanted to incorporated a southwestern aesthetic with many floral details. Their wedding at Mercury Hall in Austin, Texas was filled with pies, succulents, chalkboard signs, and many bright colors! Documenting memories to last a lifetime, Photo by Betsy captured the sweetest first look!
Andrew and Lisa
Mercury Hall, Austin, Texas
Andrew really wanted to go for a southwestern look and I wanted a floral look so I think that we met in the middle. The colors were so important to me, but I was also more than happy to have succulents as our centerpieces and other decor. We both find beauty in simplicity and the outdoors, and I think our wedding theme and decor reflected our love for both of those things.
Our first look was easily the best moment of the day. I loved getting to having some time with him before the wedding and am so thankful that it was all on camera.Andrew doesn’t cry often, but as I hugged him from behind, I could feel him crying. It is a moment that I will never forget. Betsy made it such a fun time where we just got to laugh together and be together on our wedding day. I loved being able to get the nerves and the tears out together before walking down the aisle to him.
The Couple Recommends:
Betsy went above and beyond. I think that she helped set the tone for the day and made me feel so comfortable. We walked away from that day with a new friend. We had so much fun and our wedding party also said that Betsy made taking pictures a fun experience for them as well. On top of all of that, we couldn’t be happier with our pictures! She was fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone!
