Eva & Tyson

Eva, Senior Organizing Manager of Sierra Club &  Tyson, Registered Nurse at St. Davids Hospital * Photographer: Lauren McGlynn (APW Sponsor) * Soundtrack for reading: “That’s The Way Love Goes” by Janet Jackson *

The Info—Photography: Lauren McGlynn / Venue: The French Legation Museum in East Austin /Caterer: Me So Hungry / Officiant: Best friend, Lindsey Barnes / Flowers: Cheri Grant at the Gala Gal (centerpieces by Eva & friends!) / DJ: Edwin Morales / Dress: Made by local Austin Designer Chia Guillory / Shoes: Seychelle “I dos” / Earrings: Michelle Goni (bridesmaid) family heirloom/ Suit: Hugo Boss / Shoes: Cole Haan Wing Tips / Bridesmaid Dresses: J Crew (Starla’s was handmade by Grandma Vicki!) / Groomsmen: Banana Republic

Other cool stuff we should know about: The wedding was very much a community affair, from hundreds of handmade fabric flowers sewn by friends and family, to the Dads hanging all the lights the night before, to the officiant who is one of our best friends! A local designer made the dress, and we bought the fabric from this great little fabric specialty shop, Silk Road Textile, which is located at a great little art studio in East Austin. The food was from an East Austin specialty food trailer, and they served up Vietnamese Bahn Mi sandwiches which were a hit! The DJ was one of my oldest friends from college, and he tore it up! Our families got along amazingly, and we danced the night away.

One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Ceremony and celebration of love, through and through, that turned out to be one hell of a party.

Favorite thing about the wedding: Eva—It’s so hard to chose just one favorite thing, but if I had to I would try to sum it up by just saying all the love in the air (is that one thing?)! Tyson and I felt every minute was amazing, our families loved each other, our friends came in from different parts of the country, and it was just all around a big giant party to celebrate our love! Tyson—I was really excited to see Eva, because I had not seen the dress yet and it really was perfect. It was the best day of my life and the most fun! The dance party at the Longbranch Inn was absolutely amazing!

    Eva looks SO GORGEOUS. So does her husband. Damn attractive couple! This wedding looks so beautiful and so happy… so happy for both of you.

    I also have never noticed this before, but I looove the tag “non matching bridesmaid dresses.” Must. Investigate.

  • I just noticed that the first two links to Lauren lead to APW 404 errors (although the sponsor link at the end works!)

  • carrie

    Ummmmmm. YOU GUYS ARE GORGEOUS! Sorry to get shouty, you just are. :-) Congrats!

  • I think this is absolutely my favorite wedding of all the ones you’ve shot Lauren. Just something about it makes me so so happy. I especially love that shot of them dancing with him grinning into her neck. Looooove.

  • I’m glad Lauren was able to travel to Austin to shoot Eva and Tyson’s wedding. The photos turned out so good.

  • Cass

    You guys are VERY good looking. I’m obsessed with the bride’s hair style.

    Love the pictures. Especially at the beginning. It’s nice to see people’s real houses and neighborhoods in pictures. I feel like the impluse is to stage everything, but this is so much better to me.

  • k

    It appears that every single person at your wedding has some serious STYLE going on; from the flower girls to the bridesmaids to the guests’ hairstyles to the matriarchs in their Sunday best. Gorgeous couple and beautful shots.

  • Ivy

    Oh! Oh! OH! This was so beautiful. The way the couple just looks at each other you can see the love.

    Simply beautiful!

  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I’m watching Eva and Tyson on an episode of House Hunters. I recognized you right away . . . you guys are officially APW celebrities.

    (Also, your new place looks lovely!)

  • a groovy wedding celebration! they probably hired the best DJ out there. Anyway, I heard that Minneapolis wedding DJs are good too. They have been in the business for so long so there’s no doubt that they will be able to provide a superb service. And to think that DJs play an important role in weddings, to keep the guests grooving and entertained, only the best must be hired to experience the best wedding ever!

  • Fantastic wedding photos. All details are so nice. This is one very, very nice wedding. Thanks for sharing.
