Larissa & Allen Married - Sailboat Wedding on Lake Travis Austin, Texas
Sep 14, 2016 | By: Francois Photography
Larissa and Allan have been together for four years - a second marriage for both of them. They wanted their wedding to be a small, intimate gathering of the family and friends that believed in them, loved them and encouraged their union. And... they wanted to be married on a SAILBOAT while their guests watched from a BALCONY at the Lakeway Resort - 50 feet above Lake Travis. Naturally, this was a wedding I wanted to photograph. Everything about it was special. Even the invitation set the tone for this unique happening. Guests were encouraged to "Dress to Impress" in navy and white.
So it was just me - the photographer, a captain, the bride/groom, an officiant, and two witnesses on the sailboat. The weather was perfect and we all got a little sunburned. The guests watched and listened to the vows via a cell phone. To ensure I was able to photograph the sailboat from a distance, they even arranged to have the groom's son shuttle me in a motor boat while we went from the dock to the ceremonial site. After the 15 minute ceremony, we sailed back to the dock and joined the guests for cake and champagne on the "Back Porch" of the resort.
A perfect day, perfect wedding for a perfect couple.
