From Sydney – Ashley was beyond amazing to work with and captured the most special moments that did NOT look cheesy or posed at all! This was super important to us as our wedding was a very intimate event and the love, family, and friends are what mattered most to us. Our pictures turned out amazing and she got everything back to us so quickly! She also loved hanging around with our dogs and all the other pups that joined the party 🙂 Could not recommend enough.
How did you two meet/love story?
Sydney and Michael met on April 1st, 2016. It was a warm Friday evening in Austin TX, Sydney was on vacation visiting two of her best friends in the state; she had been staying with Carly, a college roommate and mutual lover of all things Harry Potter. Michael was in Texas for work and decided to extend his trip to visit an old New York City friend that had relocated to Austin. Hotel prices were out of control and he decided that an Airbnb would be the best bet for his weekend in the South. Not shy to a good time, Michael found Carly and Kate’s listing with the tagline “Work hard, Party harder”. The picture of two cute girls sealed the deal and the room in their home was booked. Upon rushed arrival to the home on the busy Cesar Chavez Street Michael was met in the kitchen by Carly, Kate, and Sydney. The three ladies were having wine in anticipation of a night out. Eyes locked and introductions were made (Sydney distinctly remembers hearing an Irish accent that later must have been her imagination). The weekend that followed was filled with bike rides along the river, great food, mustang rides, hikes, mountain views, and new tattoos!
We wanted to share something intimate with our closest people and true to how we met and got engaged, we decided on renting an Airbnb to host everyone for a weekend.
We chose everything for this weekend based around relaxing and having fun with our closest people. This will most likely be the only time in our lives where these people are together and relaxed at the same time with us.
Do what you want! Do literally whatever you want to do with your person, you are planning the most special time in your entire life with your person so do it how you want and don’t stress. Your thought process should be “this is what we are doing because me and my person feel so in love with doing it that way”.
