Zach and Lori just had their wedding on a temperate Austin day ( upper 90's) on the top floor of the Austin landmark The Oasis. For those who have never been the Oasis is a restaurant/bar/live music venue whose draws include stunning landscape and statuary, margaritas and the best view of the sun setting over Lake Travis. They have over 30 different decks from which the views are fantastic. Lori and Zach's ceremony was held on the top deck of the Oasis just as the sun was nearing the horizon. There was just a sprinkling of clouds and just enough haze in the day to get some really great color in the sky. The flowers by Carie of Always and Forever were gorgeous in shades of green, red, magenta and yellow. Lori's mermaid styled dress had a froth of sheer organza for the train which to me perfectly fit her personality and hairstyle...soft curls with the colorful orchids pinned in (which perfectly matched the bridesmaids magenta knee length dresses) She just glowed with happiness and tears as she and Zach became husband and wife. Family and friends had gathered from as far as New Jersey to enjoy their nuptials. The dinner put out by the Oasis chefs was wonderful (especially the pecan encrusted snapper...yum!). After cake, drinks, dancing and some tearful and wonderful toasts they exited to their stretch limo in a hail of well wishes under an arch of sparklers. Enjoy Hawaii and we cant wait to get together when you return.
