I can't seem to put my finger on it, but something about this Austin affair has me grinning from ear to ear. It might be the precious way that Anne & Robert met at summer camp as children, or the fact that they realized their shared adoration and made their relationship a priority through college, or the fact that Mekina Saylor Weddings is one of the bride's closest childhood friends, or the original vows they wrote to each other from a compilation of others that they look up to, or the total overall gorgeousness of their entire wedding day. Whatever combination of those things, I'll tell you that it sure is sweet and you don't want to miss a single minute of it!
From the photographer...
Anne & Bobby met as children in church camp in Raleigh, NC. However, it wasn’t until years later when they realized they shared dreams for the future and a multi-tiered attraction to one another and began dating. They attended college in Texas and desired to have their wedding where they had begun to build their lives together.
Under the Austin oak trees at The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge, these two committed to each other to not only be husband and wife, but best friends. Anne and Bobby decided to take tidbits from Christian couples they admired most from their community and make their vows into something they’ll remember forever. Their wedding was intimate, beautiful, and meaningful for them as well as everyone involved.
I have been lucky enough to know Anne for 20 years. I couldn’t have asked for a better man for my childhood bestie to marry. I was not only honored by shooting her gorgeous Austin wedding, but I was a part of it as one of the maid of honors. I am so proud of my friend and the man she has chosen. They are two of the most sincere, giving, and loving people I have ever met and it brings me such joy to share their beautiful wedding with you.
