0065_JASays Amanda, “I knew that St. Mary’s Cathedral was where I wanted to get married at a very young age.  After John and I became engaged, we looked at various Catholic Churches in Austin, but we could not get St. Mary’s out of our mind. We were thrilled when we received the news that we would have it for our wedding day, 6/28/14. We quickly decided on The Four Seasons for our reception venue. It was beautiful and elegant, and served as a perfect backdrop for our big day.

0007_JA 0093_JA 0303_JAI picked out a few dresses that I wanted to try on. I had two that were my favorites and so the manager took some dresses away. I specifically looked at the one I was going to choose and said I didn’t like the lace pattern. After going back and forth on the two I had left, my mother, who could see I wasn’t sold on them asked them to bring back the dress I said I didn’t want. With reluctance, I put it on, and I knew! I knew that I didn’t have to try anything else on. I think the more dresses you try on, the more confusing it gets!

We had lush white flowers and candles that gave the whole room a warm glow the whole evening.  My dress was an all lace, ivory gown that I paired with diamond and pearl drop earrings.  My mother wore them on her wedding day, and they originally belonged to my great-grandmother. The day could not have been any more romantic, spiritual, and fun!
