If you head west from Austin, pass through Dripping Springs and go all the way to Fredericksburg and then keep going west, you’ll end up in Kerville. But if you drive a little further, you’ll pass through the little town of Hunt and then find yourself in the deep, true Texas Hill Country. You’ll also find yourself at Mo Ranch, a camp along the towering banks of the Guadalupe. After the long drive, arriving at Mo Ranch for Audrey & Mitch’s weekend of wedding festivities felt like an escape from reality: beautiful views, canoes, water slides, and little to no cell service. But while it might have felt that way for the guests and myself, Audrey & Mitch already live a life that is adventure and travel. They don’t need to escape because exploring interesting places with the people they love is normal. Maybe we should all aspire to make our weekends (and weekdays!) so vibrant that wedding weekends can be a continuation of a life we love already.
If you’ve ever met me, you probably know that I’m a gullible person. When Kyndall & Nathan’s wedding day came around, I had only met Nathan via Skype, but he is clearly good at reading people because he tricked me within 5 seconds of meeting him. Let me just tell you, that is always a great sign for a wedding day. Sure enough, their wedding at the Vista West Ranch flew by, thanks to their joyful personalities and hilarious friends and family. One of my favorite moments was when we were taking night portraits and Kyndall suddenly ran back towards the reception so that she could dance to the Nae-Nae. The wedding day was so fun that I couldn’t stop smiling looking back through the photos, and now I’m excited because sharing happy things only makes them sweeter.
