Amber & Kenley’s Wedding ~ Chapel Dulcinea Photographer

Weddings

They met in highschool freshman year. Kenley asked her to homecoming dance—her first date—and she blew him off. After four years of highschool drama, the relationship got real and then real-er when he proposed. They decided to host a fun weekend for their closest family and friends here in Austin that began with rehearsal dinner at the Salt Lick. The wedding was at Chapel Dulcinea followed by a reception dinner at Trattoria Lisina in Driftwood, a very short drive from Southwest Austin.

This is the sweetest thing I’ve seen any couple do at a wedding: in lieu of sand or candles, they painted a little canvas together. I hope it sits on their mantle forever.bride and groom paint together ~ Chapel DulcineaFree wedding chapel Austin  ~ Austin Wedding Photographer ~ Mercedes Morgan Photographybride and groom paint together ~ Chapel DulcineaFree wedding chapel Austin  ~ Austin Wedding Photographer ~ Mercedes Morgan Photographyabout to kiss ~ Chapel DulcineaFree wedding chapel Austin  ~ Austin Wedding Photographer ~ Mercedes Morgan Photographythe long first kissthe wedding party ~ Chapel DulcineaFree wedding chapel Austin  ~ Austin Wedding Photographer ~ Mercedes Morgan Photographyamber and kenley newlyweds ~ Chapel DulcineaFree wedding chapel Austin  ~ Austin Wedding Photographer ~ Mercedes Morgan Photography

Mercedes! I was gushing to myself about the bouquets and the tones and then I got to the photo of the bride's father (I assume) wiping away tears and I gasped out loud. AMAZING. That was just beautiful.
