This planning was all too great! Jax and Lloyd invited their closest family and friends to a "birthday/engagement party." Little did their guests know the night would end with a new set of Mr. & Mrs. A surprise wedding was planned all along!

This event took place at the Hummingbird House in South Austin. This venue was beautiful! I couldn't help but capture the details of the delicate flowers and statues that surrounded the property. The couple sure did not disappoint- each guest arrived and was greeted with a glass of champagne. The kids stayed entertained with yard games and even pony rides!! There were lots of laughs to go around.

It wasn't until Jax and Lloyd brought everyone into the dinning hall that they made their announcement. I have to say, seeing the reaction from the brides father was priceless!! The couple had pulled it off! They quickly got changed and had one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've witnessed. The vows the couple wrote to each other was so sincere and true. Jax and Lloyd said "I do" with their kids looking up to them... It was a beautiful moment.

The reception did not lack. It was my first time seeing a live belly dancer. All the guests could enjoy their dinner while watching an incredible dance arrangement.

I was also privileged enough to take this couple on a 2nd photo shoot for wedding portraits. This took place at Laguna Gloria a few weeks after the ceremony. Once the gallery was completed, I eagerly pushed send as this was such a fun collection to give!
