We’re thrilled to feature this fine art-inspired wedding captured by Kate Elizabeth Photography. From the breathtaking cathedral ceremony to a romantic reception full of blooming florals and greenery, Katelyn and Curt’s wedding was filled with dreamy spring vibes. Read on for all the details of this early spring wedding.

On February 26, 2022, Katelyn and Curt wed in a traditional church ceremony in Austin, TX . Katelyn walked down the aisle in an elegant off-the-shoulder gown while bridesmaids donned floor-length silk gowns complimenting the bride’s lush bouquet of sherbert-colored florals. “The most spectacular moment of our day was walking down the aisle towards my husband. Both of our hearts were pounding, and we were running on adrenaline, but everything was incredibly surreal. There were 100+ friends and family sharing this moment, but I swear in those few minutes, all I could think about was how lucky I am. And it truly felt like we were the only two people on earth,” says Katelyn.

Following the ceremony, the couple celebrated with a reception at a stately historic mansion nestled in downtown Austin. Verdant vines, whimsical floral arrangements and warm candlelight decorated the elegant reception space. After dinner and dancing, the couple enjoyed a decadent three-tier white wedding cake adorned with pink, orange and white blooms and golf-inspired “cake balls” by the talented team at Sweet Treets Bakery. To conclude the evening, the bride and groom exited under a shower of dazzling sparklers.

Burgundy, Navy, And Ivory Fall Wedding By Kate Elizabeth Photography

After a chance meeting while celebrating Cinco de Mayo, Jessica and Andrew immediately hit it off while bonding over Sperry’s. Jessica noticed Andrew’s white Sperry’s and blurted out that she had the same shoes but in cheetah print. This led him to ask “who wears cheetah” so naturally, Jessica recites the next line of the Selfie Song and they’ve been inseparable since. “Our meeting was ridiculous, and throughout that entire night, we recited the Selfie Song obnoxiously, laughed, and talked about everything and nothing,” recalls Jessica. “It felt like we found the perfect person at the perfect time.” At the end of the night, Andrew asked Jessica for her number a street over from where they would, later on, have their fall wedding at. “I’m a massive believer in fate, and I knew there was a reason we met.”

Just as fate intended, the couple tied the knot in a dreamy outdoor garden ceremony surrounded by 120 of their loved ones. For the reception, velvet place cards in a color palette of navy, burgundy, and ivory and velvet linens played a critical role in their fall wedding. “The color was a representation of the type of entree that had been picked,” explains Jessica. “My mother’s name in Vietnamese translates to velvet, so I wanted to pay homage to that. EB Inc. Event Rentals & Design was able to make my velvet dreams come true, and we were able to have ivory and red velvet linens for our tables.” Guests dined on steak churrasco and lemon rosemary chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and haricot verts before hitting the dancefloor. To pay homage to Jessica’s Vietnamese culture, the newlyweds surprised guests with a Lion Dance performance and Jessica wore a traditional Vietnamese dress. Jessica and Andrew’s biggest obstacle while planing their fall wedding was having to narrow down the vendors they went with. Says Jessica: “I really built some amazing relationships with the people in the wedding industry and there is so much talent and love that fuels into our special day. I wish I could’ve hired everyone I met at the I Do! Soiree.” Join us in celebrating this sweet couple and swooning over their gorgeous fall wedding, all beautifully documented by Houston wedding photographer Kate Elizabeth Photography and Houston wedding videographer Reverent Wedding Films. Congratulations, Jessica & Andrew!
