Inspiration For A Sophisticated Modern Wedding Day

 In Advice

With its modern flair and inviting atmosphere, I don’t think there’s anywhere in Texas quite like the South Congress Hotel. Or anywhere in the world for that matter. Likewise, there aren’t any two people quite like Audrey and Matthew. The type of couple that will leave you with inspiration for a sophisticated modern wedding day.

Charismatic Couple

They so easily enrapture you with their charm, warmth, and energy. This gorgeous couple is the perfect combination of sophistication, carefree and hoopla! That’s right, I managed to use the word hoopla. Just wait till you see the photos and you’ll understand.

They fit their venue perfectly with their accentuated mix of class and charisma. The decor and florals were woven throughout the hotel seamlessly. While the dapper attire couldn’t have been more ideal. And right in the center of it all was the stunning bride and groom.

Stopping Traffic

After the ceremony, they decided to hit the streets to get some fun shots around town. Shooting these two on their wedding day was like capturing two A-List movie stars in their element. They were stopping traffic… literally!

These two didn’t hesitate to pose center stage, or should I say center crosswalk. Getting some of the best shots I’ve seen in a long time. And the public loved them! They had people hollering and shouting as they strutted through town.

Modern Wedding Meets Modern Family

Oh, but that wasn’t where the surprising similarities in stardom began. Earlier that night Audrey didn’t hesitate to approach Jesse Tyler Ferguson, one of the actors from Modern Family. He happened to be sitting at the nearby hotel bar and graciously posed with the couple before the ceremony!

Swanky and Fun

You think that would have been enough but the night only got better from there. After the ceremony and the sunset photos around town, Audrey and Matthew headed back to the hotel. It was an unforgettable night filled with delicious food, amazing people, and unbelievable fun!

    I really like those light sticks they had for their reception, I’ve not seen those at a wedding before, and who doesn’t love a sparkler exit! Thank you for sharing this post, it gives some really lovely inspiration on how couples can do things a little differently to fit their style. It really does seem that this couples style came out in their wedding.

    What a well-planned out wedding! Down to a T! Loved the photo “guestbook” idea. And the sparklers! Although I prefer more colourful attire at weddings, this one worked so well with the cut of the clothing. Beautiful wedding!

    This is a dream wedding! The black and white is something I thought would be awkward for a wedding, but I was sooooo wrong. Beautiful pictures!
