Military Weddings that Gives Back – Michelle & Dave, Austin, TX

This Memorial Day we wanted to revisit one of our favorite military wedding features in honor of all those that have served and sacrificed their lives for our country. Bouvier_Myers_Amanda_Summerlin_Photography_Wedding201311031714 So grateful for today’s featured Real Wedding and how it brings honor and love to those that serve our country! Not only is the groom a selfless man of service, this gorgeous couple is also socially conscious. They decided to get married at the Barr Mansion, ‘The Nation’s only Certified Organic Event Facility’, and donated a portion of their budget t a charity fighting human trafficking, The Polaris Project. Talk about amazing! Their wonderful photographers, at Amanda Summerlin Photography, also pride’s themselves on being green and eco-conscious, as well as donating a portion of their profits to one of several organizations. As a gift for clients that book their wedding day, Amanda Summerlin Photography, provides their couples with a Kiva Card (which provided micro loans to entrepeuners around the world). To date they have provided the Kiva community with over 94 micro loans.

Big Fake Wedding Recap: Austin

Laid back, fresh, minimalist. The vendor team, at The Big Fake Wedding Austin, followed the “West Coast Foliage” inspiration board to the T! Taking into account that maybe less really is more, the vendor team started with a blank slate approach to their designs, then added in simple characteristics, pops of color, and leafy, foraged details. The result was a very unfussy, modern event that brought California love to Texas. Understanding I say this for every Big Fake Wedding, but I truly think this one is my favorite BFW’s thus far! Most of the foliage types are sustainable blooms and this vendor list is full of amazing do-gooders, that make our heart happy, including the first featured photographer: Grey to Blue Photography!
