Tag Archives: same sex wedding
Cody & Brandon met at an outdoor summer music series beloved by all Austinites called Blues on the Green. And as they say… the rest is history. The couple’s Austin same sex wedding at modern wedding venue Prospect House was total spring wedding perfection! Event planning by Platinum Wedding and Events made the day run smoothly and beautifully. The grooms helped each other get dressed, topping of their suits with colorful handkerchiefs, matching rainbow socks and succulent boutonnieres. As guests arrived by shuttle, they were greeted by a delicious Antonelli’s Cheese Shop platter… yum!
On the most beautiful spring day, each groom was walked down the aisle by both of their parents. The modern white frame with hill country views served as the simple ceremony backdrop. When the guys first met, they also bonded over the fact they both loved the Sofia Coppola Blanc de Blancs Mini champagne cans. So obviously, that had to be featured for guests at the reception!
As music lovers, the couple made sure to pick a super fun band for the reception, The Nightowls. Cody & Brandon danced to the classily romantic “At Last” by Etta James for their first dance. The band kept the dance floor packed all night, with the exception of a quick mini-donut exchange courtesy of the adorable hot pink Little Lucy’s mini-donuts trailer. The last dance “Shout” played by the band had everyone in a dance party frenzy. What an incredible wedding! Huge congratulations Cody & Brandon!

When you are greeted at Star Hill Ranch by a large taxidermy buffalo, you know this is going to be one awesome wedding! Alongside their best friends, Scott & Matt got ready together in the grooms cottage. I love it when couples get dressed side by side, and help each other with the finishing touches of their snappy blue suits – it’s just makes for such intimate and romantic photos! We wandered around the sprawling property for couple’s photos, before signing the marriage certificate surrounded by their family in the little white chapel. The ceremony took place down by the pavilion, with a mix of chairs and long wooden pews for guests. Instead of a traditional aisle down the middle, this modern couple opted for long rows and a hilarious sign saying “Sit on the grooms’ side”. The couples’ proud mothers walked them down the aisle arm-in-arm, and Matt’s uncle acted as officiant, declaring “Scott, I now declare you married to my nephew!” Guests then mingled over signature Whiskey & Pimm’s Cup cocktails while Scott & Matt rang the church bell and celebrated! Guests were treated to an extraordinarily delicious al fresco dinner by Gourmet Gals under the string lights, and stunningly creative fruit-infused floral table arrangements by friend Travis Ward. We stole the newlyweds away for a quick sunset session, and I am so glad we made it happen, because the photos are just pure magic! A live band kicked off the first dance, which then evolved into Mother-Son dances about half way through… so sweet! Silhouette artist Cindi Rose created single and double-couple silhouettes as guest favors and to be glued into a custom guest book. What an original and unique idea! Since Scott has a background in theater and lighting design, and some of the Ilios lighting techs were ex-students of Scott’s, the reception lighting and colors were fun, punchy & plentiful! After dancing the night away, the couple exited to bubbles and the cheers of loved ones. Big congratulations Scott & Matt on your picture perfect Star Hill Ranch wedding!!!
