An intimate House on the Hill wedding
Whether she admits it or not, every bride (AND groom, for that matter!), has an idea of what a dream wedding looks like. For Devon and JonEric, they dreamed of a small and intimate House on the Hill wedding with as much DIY (do-it-yourself) as possible. With the help of their friends and family, they were able to pull it off. With hand-painted decor, lights strung outside the venue, and floral arrangements crafted from a friend - everything turned out just as they had dreamed.
The perfect Austin, Texas wedding venue: House on the Hill
Perched high on a hill with a stunning view, House on the Hill was the perfect venue for the wedding of their dreams. A small ceremony, a romantic dinner for two, a charcuterie spread, corn hole, and an outdoor dance surrounded by family and friends, this wedding was an absolute dream to shoot. As if that wasn't enough, the delectable array of cupcakes and treats from Nothing Bundt Cakes was the cherry on top of a perfect day!
Wedding planning advice for a DIY wedding
When asked for any wedding planning advice, Devon said that their 18-month long engagement gave them plenty of time to collect liquor and wine bottles for their DIY centerpieces. The couple also told friends and family to collect bottles, which brought down the cost of the wedding. You’ll see these centerpieces in the photos, but I can honestly say that I have never seen so many incredibly crafted DIY decor pieces at a wedding. From letter boards, photo frames, chalkboards, party favors, and floral vases - this wedding was a do-it-yourself inspiration and I had such a blast being a part of their special day!
