Kirsten+Brian : Married

Date: May 17, 2008
Photographers: Mariae*, Hali* & Thurston*
Venue:
Casa Blanca on Brushy Creek
Band: Alpha Rev
Cake: Sweet Tempered
Catering: Lonnie with Casa Blanca


The next day after Keely+Kyle's wedding, Kirsten and Brian tied the knot over at Casa Blanca on Brushy Creek. This was the first time we have ever been out to this venue - and I love it for several different reasons! It's a beautiful, peaceful little area...and it was only 5 miles from my house. :) But mainly because it was a wonderful little place. So, the one thing we always ask for with our couple is their wedding day itinerary.......well, when Kirsten sent me hers, it was filled with "Kirsten set up flowers....Kirsten decorate arch..." and sure enough when we arrived at the wedding venue - Kirsten was helping set up everything (even though she had a coordinator!) - when she should have been in hair and makeup! But, seriously, how spoiled were we to get two weddings back to back filled with the most amazing wedding details - both of them so unique and a great reflection of the couple's taste and style. On that note, you probably have guessed that this post is going to contain a TON of wedding details....but first...let's start off with the bride and groom....

The entire time during pictures, Brian was sooo excited that he was about to marry Kirsten that he kept telling his guys how he's marrying Kirsten today. Way cute! And here's Kirsten - looking absolutely gorgeous in her mother-in-law's lace wedding veil.

The first of many details.....

I heart wedges!!! And how cute is this flower basket for the flower girl???!!

The ceremony site. Kirsten and Brian made the arch themselves when they couldn't find an arch that didn't actually "arch" at the top. I love how the garlands hang down..........
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

At first, I was going to shoot the wedding dress indoors...but everything about Kirsten's wedding and all her details..were so organic - very "Anthropologie" that I had to sneak her dress outside.....I did have to shoot fast though since Brian was on his way. :) Hali shot the second picture of Kirsten peeking out the window - watching the wedding procession....and I love how Hali was also able to capture Kirsten's stepfather watching her.....definitely one of my all-time favorite pre-ceremony picture.

Walking down the aisle. Kirsten and Brian did untraditional wedding ceremony music. They selected music from the "Vitamin String Quartet" - a classical take on modern music. This is seriously something worth checking out if you have never heard of this before.

Brian's expression at seeing Kirsten......

How cute is this?? I love love love this look that Brian is sneaking over to Kirsten... :)

The ceremony..........and Kirsten sneaking a glance over at Brian.

Wedding vows...and the second image was taken when the song "Hallelujah" (with personalized lyrics) was being sung..............it made them smile...
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

...and cried...
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

...and it was all this guy's (Casey McPherson) fault! Seriously, his voice is amazing...and Kirsten just told me that his band Alpha Rev plays locally in Austin all the time. Definitely worth checking out!
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

First kiss. :) So, I totally love this idea that Kirsten did for the wedding. It appears that she asked her family members to borrow their cake toppers and wedding pictures...and then displayed at the reception...
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

Here's one with a wedding photo and a topper. This actually made me wish that I did a traditional cake topper on my wedding day.

The wedding rings in a bed of rosemary...

The girls....
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

...and the boys - Number 1-6. Yes. I give people numbers. I'm only good at remember the bride's name...and maybe sometimes the groom's. :)
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

...and a fun picture. I love how everyone jumps differently and with so much personality!
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

During cocktail hour....the guests lounged here.......
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

...and listened to him on keyboard....
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

...while he sang. Yes, they had a mini-concert during cocktail hour. Their wedding was that awesome.
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

See...I told you they lounged...
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

Not only did the guests get to enjoy amazing music as well as a cool little lounging area...they also got gifts for doing so!!! :-P.

First dance. Kirsten and Brian danced to Oasis's "Wonderwall." This was the first time I heard this being played for a first dance song....and I love how it suited them perfectly. Here's Kirsten.
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

And here's Brian. I don't think I've ever seen a couple more wrapped up into each other during the first dance as Kirsten and Brian. This sounds weird, but I felt as though I was intruding on a really private moment here. It was really beautiful to watch.
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

....even more details. There's lots! Stalkers, I warned you already!
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

The last dance.

Right before they exited, Kirsten and Brian's get away car (a Bentley) pulled in...and I grabbed them for a quick photoshoot. It's not everyday a girl gets to have a Bentley in her pictures. :)
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

And here's the actual getaway. I shot this image blindly when the car was driving away...not really expecting more than a picture of a car driving away. When I got home and viewed the image, I was soooo thrilled to see them kissing in the back seat during the getaway!! :) (Note to future brides+grooms: it will make me really happy if you can just keep kissing and kissing in the car until out of view of your photographer.) :-).
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

So, I've never posted something like this on my blog before, but I thought this may be a fun little thing to do occassionally. The first image is almost straight out of camera - the exposure have been corrected a bit - and most likely this is the image that we show as "proof images." The second image is a "finished" image. This is typically what I see in my head when I'm shooting.
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

Here's another "before" image...
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian

And here's the "After" image....... (what can I say, I love negative space.)
Pink Posh Kirsten and Brian


Kirsten and Brian, the day couldn't have been more perfect. Besides all the wonderful details that was a dream to shoot, it was made even more wonderful watching you two exchange secret little glances and document the love that is so obvious between you two. Thanks for inviting us in. :)

    Thank you so much for this preview of what's to come. I love the narration of the details. All of the pictures are wonderful. I love your creative vision, kirsten is sure to love the "afters".
    I was the MOH & I must say that Kirsten and her Mom did an amazing job putting every detail together. It was most certainly the most naturally beautiful wedding i have ever seen.
    One more HUGE kudos and this should be quoted in your testemonials for referrals. There were 3 photographers with the Pink Posh team for this wedding. You all did a wonderful job in capturing the great moments and details and were completely non-intrusive. We were late to take pictures and you gave us no grief and flew threw the rest when we finally got to do those! Thanks for making Kirsten's day that much easier! You all were great!
