There have been times in my career as a wedding photographer that I realize I will not easily forget- and this wedding was definitely one of them. So much love and thoughtfulness was poured into this day by both the bride and the groom- not one aspect of their wedding day was unintentional (thanks to Cassidy's astounding organizational skills) - and so when they chose us to document it all, we were pretty honored and excited. 

Michael and Cassidy are pretty much the coolest- they have cool jobs (she works for Whole Foods' Whole Kids Foundation and he is a is the head butcher at foodie hotspot Dai Due) and live in a cool city (Austin, duh). But more than that- these two are so astute at bringing people in and loving them well. Cassidy grew up in Lubbock and Michael is from New Jersey- and it was so much fun to watch all of their people and histories mix, mingle and celebrate new beginnings and new family. There were real tears and belly laughs during their ceremony, and I believe it is because these two are truly loved and celebrated.

Llano Estacado was the perfect setting for this Springtime fête- and not only did we have beautiful sunlight but also a great West Texas sunset. I'm about to overshare on photos- don't say I didn't warn you! 

Congrats, Donnellys!
