Helen and Wes’ The Creek Haus Wedding ~ Austin Wedding Photographers

The story of the day Helen and Wes tied the knot at their Creek Haus wedding.

Helen and Wes ~ The Creek Haus Wedding ~ Austin Wedding Photographer

Hang on, scratch that. The “day” was technically a four-day weekend and the wedding was just one of those four epic days. Pretty much the most awesome thing ever: stretch a wedding day into a wedding weekend. Result? More time spent with the people you love and who love you back.

Helen and Wes did a lot of their research well ahead of time and decided that they’d have an amazing getaway-to-the-Hill-Country celebration with their closest friends and family. The perfect venue came in the form of The Creek Haus, one of the newest venues in the Wedding Capitol of Texas, Dripping Springs. Not only could The Creek Haus offer naturally beautiful outdoors—creekside!—for their ceremony and a crazy pretty reception space, but they could also house most of them for the entire weekend. How fun is that? It was just another opportunity for both their families to get together and strengthen their 15-year shared history through Helen and Wes.

Each and every detail of their wedding was not just elegant but mostly thoughtful. Colorful throws were provided when the weather turned a bit chilly. Lush greenery and flowers were featured in the bouquets and boutonnieres as well as the dining tables and the decor throughout the venue. Late night popcorn with personalized bags were set out for guests who wanted a little extra energy to keep dancing the night away. It was all pretty amazing and everything just showed a sense for real hospitality and lots of warm and cozy.

These are the amazing vendors that brought the elegant affair to life:
