Our Favorite Wedding Venues: Zilker Clubhouse (Austin, Texas)

Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s day, about 75% of our couples get engaged and book their wedding date with us. The past few years, the most common question we have been asked is about booking a venue – because many of our brides actually book with us before they have nailed down a venue. It’s always exciting to work with clients who value photos so much, and we’ve been brainstorming a way to help make the venue search easier.

One of our new 2017 website features will show some of our favorite Texas wedding venues. We’ve decided to give you a sneak peek, so every few days we’ll be sharing one of our favorite venues!

To follow along with the venue sneak peeks, join us on the fanpage!

To all of our new brides and grooms, happy planning! We hope this makes one of your decisions a little easier!

Our first favorite venue feature is the Zilker Clubhouse in Austin, Texas. For intimate weddings with a southwest flair, and an open-air reception overlooking the Austin skyline, this venue is perfect. It’s a great option for brides looking to tie the knot just a little outside the hustle of downtown, but still feel the magic!

Dallas Wedding Photography with Traditional Tea Ceremony | Elizabeth and Brian |

Some people say that your wedding day is the biggest day of your life. What we have learned over the years is that it’s not the events rushing by on that day that give it such depth – its the buildup of all those wonderful little moments that brought those two lives together. When we met this couple, we knew that their wedding would tell a beautiful story that both celebrated the journey that brought them together, and the future they were starting hand in hand. She laughed as she told us about the first time they met… When we got to know them on their engagement session, we couldn’t help but notice how he quietly gazed back at her with a look that said everything: he knew that the day he found her was the luckiest day of his life.

Meet Elizabeth and Brian.

The wedding day started with the tea ceremony. Elizabeth got ready with the ladies at her parent’s home, and Brian arrived in style with his parents and the guys, bringing the traditional gifts and roasted pig. The beauty of the tea ceremony, from the lighting of the candles, to the couple sharing tea with the family, was the perfect celebration of two families becoming one. Afterwards, the intimate backyard ceremony began, just steps away in the beautiful family garden…

And, of course, how lovely are these Jimmy Choo heels?
