New Hill Country Wedding Venue – Altstadt Brewery in Fredericksburg, Texas
October 16, 2018

I’m so excited to be the FIRST to style and publish a shoot at this new amazing Hill Country wedding venue- Altstadt Brewery in Fredericksburg, Texas!
This place is just amazing. It’s a beautiful modern Bavarian space like no other in the Hill Country that fits so perfectly with the historic German tradition of the area. The owners spared no expense on the lavish details. The ornate wood carving on the fireplace, the beautiful windows and archways on the many patios, and all of the beautiful gold details. We actually did this shoot while the venue was still under construction, so we didn’t have the opportunity to get as many wide shots as we would have liked. However, I think these images will be enough of a teaser to entice you to visit in person and see the grandeur and taste the beer! Check out their contact info on my Hill Country wedding vendors page to set up a tour!

Viridian did these wonderfully textured centerpieces and that amazing greenery installation. Really, I honestly don’t think I’ll be able to picture this fireplace without the greenery now…

How do I form my Wedding Guest List?
September 16, 2018

I get asked this question really often when working with couples. Hill Country weddings are a little different than say Dallas or Austin weddings. Typically they are smaller and more “destination-like”. If you follow the rules and formula below you’ll end up with a really close number to use for your budget and give to vendors! First, divide up the guest list. No matter who is paying for the wedding, the general split is 50% bride & groom invites, 25%…
