Hannah and Luke | Braving the Storm
Barton Creek Resort Wedding
Austin Wedding Photographers | Dustin Meyer Photography
After shooting weddings for 12 years, if there's one thing I've learned it's to be ready for anything. I've been so fortunate to work at Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa for so many years. The weddings held on the gorgeous grounds of Barton Creek have always been absolutely stunning events. With so much natural light in their Pavilion, ceremonies always come out looking memorable and personal.
However, on the day of Hannah and Luke's wedding, the weather had different plans for us. As many of us who live in Austin are aware of, the weather can be extremely unpredictable. Fortunately, because of the Barton Creek event coordinators, there is always a backup plan for every wedding.
Over the years, if there's one thing I've learned, it's that it doesn't matter what the world throws at you on your wedding day. All that matters is being in the moment.
A bride. Her groom. Family and friends. These ingredients are all that's required to make the perfect wedding day.
Being in the moment…
At my own wedding, it rained. And it poured. Our wedding day was held at our small house next to Bull Creek. We planned to have our ceremony down by the pond with our loved ones witnessing the moment when my wife and I shared our vows.
However, it rained. And it poured.
Austin had never had that much rain in 50 years.
But my wife and I barely noticed. We held our ceremony in our little house. Everyone squeezed together in the dining room to be in that moment with us. We could barely hear a thing in our log cabin house with the tin roof echoing the torrential noise from outside.
But when she walked into the room, everything stood still. The rain stopped. The noise dissipated, and our eyes met. I couldn't help myself from quietly crying with happiness.
It is still one of the happiest days of my life.
Come rain or shine, I am yours and you are mine.
