Austin | A Travel Diary in Photos (and Captions)

Over Memorial Day weekend, I had the opportunity to travel to Austin, Texas to see one of my very dear friends marry the love of her life. My intention had been to break out my Canon Rebel, which I have neglected as of late. However, I ended up relying instead on my iPhone, using Instagram to track my activities.

The wedding and reception took place at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, which is absolutely lovely this time of year.

I absolutely loved the orchids and lanterns at each of the cocktail reception tables.

At the entrance of the wedding, rose petals of various colors were hanging and spread about the floor — it was enchanting…and I don’t use that word lightly. This is my friend Kevin walking through the entryway.

I was able to catch this woman putting the finishing touch on the lovely cake.

It had been a while since I had visited Texas in the summer, and I had forgotten about the heat. Ridiculous, I know. But true nonetheless. Luckily the bride had planned ahead and offered up these beautiful fans. Alas, I left mine behind.

Understand now why I didn’t pack the Canon Rebel? That’s my Grandmother Betty’s clutch — one of my favorite accessories.

Needless to say — it was an extraordinary wedding.
