Real Weddings: Lori + Jonathan

Everything about Lori and Jonathan’s wedding is pretty much perfect. We have puppies with handmade ribbon collars and leashes, the most beautiful DIY flowers, a light and fun color palette of yellow and gray, and an Austin, TX wedding venue that is so unique and different. And on top of that, Heather from Eclectic Images outdid herself with spectacular photography, capturing every little detail and special moment!

Lori’s gals were decked out in gray bridesmaids dresses by J Crew and wore yellow shoes of their choosing and yellow flowers in their hair.

Not to be outdone, Jonathan and his groomsmen are dapper in their Chuck Taylors and the couple’s three pups sported yellow ribbon collars and leashes.  Aren’t they precious?!

The venue, The Plant at Kyle, is located just outside of Austin, TX.  It’s an open, architectural space that allows for indoor/outdoor events.  Lori and Jonathan held their ceremony on the lawn and adorned the trees with yellow paper lanterns.

Heather captured some incredible portraits, and you know I’m including lots of them – especially the ones that include their three babies!

Lori and Jonathan created every detail of the day themselves and all of the decor fit in perfectly with the backdrop of The Plant at Kyle.

I love the reception set-up, so casual and laid-back, set outdoors under fairy lights in the perfect Texas weather!

  1. Nice color scheme! And great pictures that really captured the joy of the day. On one of the last photo’s the father of the bride seems to have a direct connection to God! : ) That is very special picture.

    Wonderful!
    I am looking into that place to get married! If Lori has time to talk, I would love to talk to her about her wedding!
