Michelle and Dave | Destination Wedding in Austin, Texas

“Love is omni-inclusive, progressively exquisite, understanding and tender and compassionately attuned to other than self.” ― R. Buckminster Fuller

Today is all about Michelle and Dave.  And their stunning wedding at the remarkable Barr Mansion in Austin, Texas.  Michelle first contacted me last year shortly after we completed the Nice People Giveaway.  She told me a story about Dave that ended with him loaning his truck to a pair of complete strangers for a whole weekend because their car had broken down on a road trip.  So, right away, you know they are awesome people. Over the course of the last several months, as I got to know them, I learned that they are two people who are full of kindness and affection, and pretty dang funny too.  Ok, really funny.  There was a lot of laughing at their wedding.  And anybody who brings their dog to their wedding is way cool, if you ask me.  Also, I should mention that the venue they chose, Barr Mansion, is the nation’s first certified organic event facility, which means that not only did they have the most gorgeous wedding you’ve ever seen, but it was extremely environmentally friendly too.  See, I told you they were awesome.  Take a look and see for yourself…picture of marine groom at barr mansion wedding-1picture of marine and groomsmen at barr mansion wedding-1newlywed photo with dog-1

And that is how the most awesome couple you’ve ever met makes the happiest wedding you’ve ever seen.  I really want to thank Michelle and Dave for choosing to have me be a part of your amazing day.  It was so much fun getting to know you over the last few months, and I’m really gonna miss you guys.  Congratulations again, and I hope you had the best honeymoon ever!
