In July I photographed a fantastic wedding ceremony at St. Albert The Great Catholic Church which culminated in a fantastic reception party at the Renaissance Austin Hotel at the Arboretum in North Austin.
St. Albert The Great is a beautiful church, but I have to say that I was blown away by the amazing party that ensued at the Renaissance Hotel. And the Renaissance Hotel is amazing in itself. When you walk in you immediately see that the interior is almost entirely lit by natural light that cascades down from the ceilings high above. You feel like you are inside a snow globe, since the entire hotel is encased in a high (100+ ft?), semi-transparent ceiling.
The reception ballroom was beautifully decorated in red and white. Tables and chairs featured fancy linens and lace. No details were spared, from the champagne glasses to the table decorations. By all accounts, everything was perfect.
Both the bride and groom come from Puerto Rican families and many family members came from Puerto Rico for this special event. In addition, the bride and groom arranged for live Salsa music to be performed for everyone at the party. The energy in the room was overwhelming. At times there was almost no one sitting because every person attending was out on the dance floor moving to the Salsa rhythms.
It was a wonderful experience for me to see such a loving couple come together with their families and have such a meaningful experience. Plus, I love salsa music so what’s not to love.
My team designed a fantastic wedding album for the couple, which you can view below in it’s electronic version. The album was just approved for printing and I know that they’re going to love it. I love it too!
