Austin Wedding Photographers: Lauren + Kris | Villa Antonia Wedding |

From the very first time their paths crossed, he couldn’t forget her. It just so happened that the next time their paths crossed was in a chemistry lab at their university – and this time he made sure to say hi, so she wouldn’t forget him. Their chemistry had just begun when she caught a cold, but he knew just what to do. The secret? Some cold medicine and a stack of Disney movies. His chivalrous ride to the rescue would win her heart, and those Disney movies would win a spot in their love story…

Meet Lauren and Kris.

If you could describe their wedding day, it would be just like them. Easy-going and enjoyable, with everyone having a great time – yet classy and sophisticated. With the help of the oh-so-amazing Stefanie Yandell, they created a day dripping with elegance and warmth, and the bride even had a custom reception gown and bridesmaids’ dresses created by her friend to match her vision of the day. Lauren and Kris, both doctors in training, tied the knot overlooking the beautiful Texas Hill Country by Lake Travis, and together with friends and family they celebrated by dancing into the night.

Their gorgeous day started out at the lovely Villa Antonia, in Austin, Texas. How stunning is her Lis Simon gown?

Lauren and Kris,

Thank you all for letting us document your love and be a part of your wedding day! We’ve loved getting to know you all, and your love for Christ, your family, and your friends. We hope you are enjoying this new chapter together, and we wish you all the happiness in the world in the years to come!

Best Wishes,

Matt and Ivy

 

The story from the bride: 

Kris and I met during a chemistry lab in college.  He asked me if I had been to a friend of his’ house that past weekend. He grabbed my attention at that point and I made sure to cross his path at our friend’s house plenty of times after that.

About a week later I became sick with a cold and he came to my rescue with medicine and Disney movies, which we continued to watch together throughout dating.  We knew early on that we were going to be together for a while, forever in fact.

Kris is in love with college football, maybe a little more than me ;) He loves our puppies Boo and Ellie  as well. He has a newfound love of building things and working with his hands.   He is in Physical Therapy school, finishing in May 2014. I am entering medical school in the fall. I love candy and Disney movies. I am a Texas girl through and through. Two-stepping, country music, and Jesus are all very near and dear to my heart.

We pictured our wedding day as a day of elegance mixed with a genuine, loving, and laid back vibe. Who doesn’t love getting all fancy? But we wanted to be sure everyone was comfortable as well. We went with blush and light grey along with ivory as our colors to give a romantic, classic theme to the wedding.  We are from DFW but decided to have our wedding in Austin because that area has great memories for Kris and I. We planned using a wedding planner, Stefanie Yandell out of Austin to help keep us from driving to ATX every weekend for meetings, tastings, etc.
Our favorite splurges for the wedding had to be : Our photographers, videographers, and the food!
Favorite part of the day: Saying our vows, our pictures right after the wedding, and the reception!
