Susanne and Ryan were married at Mercury Hall in South Austin this past January. I have photographed many weddings and events there over the years, and I love every time I get a chance to go back. It’s such a great venue for a celebration near central Austin.
The couple originally found me through A Practical Wedding, a blog dedicated to helping couples plan their wedding. If you haven’t been to the APW site yet, you should definitely check it out. The couple’s wedding had a laid back vibe with a few Jewish traditions such as a chuppah, glass breaking, and a hora (chair dance). There was live music from an amazing local country band. There were many Grateful Dead cover songs done by the band, too. Spike Gillespie was the officiant, and the afternoon light was simply gorgeous. All and all, I’d say it was a successful wedding celebration. Congratulations, Susanne and Ryan!
