Xtine & Steven

Xtine (pronounced Christine) and Steven met us for their engagement portraits just a week prior to their wedding. In fact, Steven was to have his bachelor party later that same evening. We had a lot of fun doing their urban portraits though it rushed them to select their choice for printing. Their wedding day dawned a little rainy but then cleared for a beautiful sunny courtyard ceremony at The Mansion at Judges Hill in Austin. With the merging of their 2 cultures there were lots of ceremonial aspects to their reception beyond the formal dances. During the reception Xtine changed from her strapless gown into her Mother’s Vietnamese wedding dress (not many of us are able to wear our Mother’s dress) and visited each table with Steven.She then changed to a short bridal party dress for the toasting and general dancing. Afterwards, Guests gathered at the front of the mansion and cheered them down the stairs and off to start their new life. Ring ExchangeFirst Kiss
