Amazing Engagement Pictures by Whitney Lee of Whitney Lee Photography

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

Hi everyone! Well, I suppose it’s clear that I’ve been a little distracted from the blog since the beginning of the year… my apologies! As you know, my boyfriend and I got engaged over the holidays, and it’s been quite the whirlwind trying to get the wedding all planned. Add some significant hand surgery (long story - involves falling on a cactus! I’m doing great now!), and things have just been a little nuts.

Since the moment we were engaged, I’ve been excited about having engagement (and wedding!) photos done by Whitney. She is the owner and head photographer extraordinaire of Whitney Lee Photography here in Austin, TX, and she’s also officially becoming my family. You see, she is the lovely mother of my fantastic soon-to-be stepson.

My fiance and I wanted something a little different, a little more “editorial” for our engagement pictures, so we decided to go with a Mad Men-inspired theme. The lovely folks at the Highball graciously let us shoot at their fabulous venue, and we got all dolled up 60’s style for the photos. Whitney was absolutely amazing, taking two people who have a proven history of being ridiculously unphotogenic and creating these gorgeous works of art. I hope you enjoy them - we certainly do!

Ben & Leah’s Wedding

Last night, my fiance and I celebrated the marriage of our dear friends Ben and Leah at the lovely Hamilton Twelve outside of Austin. After a beautiful ceremony, we enjoyed the amazing Austin weather at the outdoor reception and danced the night away with friends and family.

Ben and Leah asked me to create their wedding cake(s) a while back, and it was such a pleasure and honor to design something special for them. Rather than the classic bride and groom cake combination, the couple wanted to have multiple coordinated cakes that were each unique in design. I created three cakes, including one that was inspired by the lace pattern in the bride’s dress. The topper on the green cake was actually designed and created by the groom! The cakes were split between our Lemon-Raspberry Dream and Southern Red Velvet flavors.
