Happy Hump Day, Lovelies!!! Today’s fabulous featured wedding comes from Stephanie Davis of Stephanie Davis Photography, a Texas based wedding photographer. Does Stephanie and the couple’s name sound familiar? It should! We featured the steamy engagement session of Alyssa and Austin back in July- AND Alyssa and Austin’s engagement session was the BIG WINNER of our prestigious Best Feature of 2010 Award!!!! (If you have never laid eyes on this awesome engagement session, please click here to check it out!) We thought it would be fun to follow up one of our engagement features with a feature of their wedding… And we were right! Talk about a beautiful wedding of an absolutely stunning Bride and Groom!!!
Stephanie has been so sweet and accommodating to GSS and we have truly enjoyed working with her on this feature.
Alyssa and Austin were married in October of 2010 at Fielder Road Baptist Church. Alyssa was kind enough to answer a few questions for us:
How did you and Austin meet? Austin and I met through my college roommate my freshman year (his junior year) at Texas A&M University.
How long have you been together? We have been together for almost 5 years now – whoa!
What sold you on your wedding venue? We were married at Fielder Road Baptist Church – this is where I grew up going to church and where my parents were married as well almost 25 years ago. Our reception was held at the Arlington Museum of Art – I loved the idea of having it at an art museum!
Your dress is gorgeous, where did you get it and how did you know it was “the one”? I found my dress at Lang’s Bridal in Arlington, TX. As soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one – I just *felt* beautiful, and I knew Austin would love it as well.
What song did you dance to for your first dance? I Have and Always Will by Dave Barnes.
What was your “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”? Old – my great grandmother’s handkerchief in my bouquet; New – my dress; Borrowed – my sister’s-in-law garter; Blue – my earrings.
How did you choose your wedding color palette? We were married in October so I chose very fall colors – brown, sage green, orange, dark purple.
Do you have any advice for brides that are in the planning process? ENJOY this time. It’s so easy to get stressed over all the details. Your wedding day will go by so quickly – and then it’s over. So take it slow and have fun!
What was your favorite part of your big day? Stephanie suggests to her brides to do what she calls a “First Look.” This is when the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. It was such a sweet, intimate time for just the 2 of us and we have amazing pictures as a result!
