Real Wedding: Rae Ann + Sean in Austin

Today’s wedding feature is filled with theatrical elements, thanks to the groom’s theater background. Captured by Cory Ryan Photography, Rae Ann and Sean were married in mid July in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony in Austin, Texas. The couple’s wedding invitations billed the event as “Sean + Rae Ann’s Big Time Wedding”. Their good friend introduced the wedding like a improv comedy act, with characters cast one by one. Rae Ann was cast as the bride and descended the stairs to much applause. Following the traditional ring exchange, a bridesmaid handcuffed the happy couple together right before their exit! With four children between them, Rae Ann and Sean made sure all their kids were intimately involved in the day. A bright and bold color palette of pink, orange, purple, and green makes a strong statement in the reception room.

Real Wedding: Melissa + Bart in Jersey City

This is such a beautiful family-centered wedding captured by Meridith Desmond Photography. Melissa and Bart were married this past July at Maritime Parc in Jersey City, New Jersey. This modern venue has fabulous natural light and gorgeous views over the Hudson River. The couple was able to wander through Liberty State Park prior to the ceremony for a few pictures with Bart’s two children, who played an integral part in the wedding. A simple, elegant color palette of red, white and black was carried throughout the details. I especially love the coffee mug favors!
