Wenjing + Sung | University Christian Church + Westin Hotel | Austin, Texas
Back in April we had the great fortune to photograph Wenjing and Sung’s engagement photos, so we knew we were in for a special treat when we were lucky enough to again photograph them, this time for their wedding!
Wenjing and Sung chose University Christian Church as the site to say their I-do’s. The church is an amazing example of architecture, and when combined with the gorgeous University of Texas campus was a stunning choice of venue. The weather was a perfect fall day, and shortly after lunch the bride, groom, and their parties arrived to get ready.
The bride and her bridal party awaited the ceremony in the church library, which also had a lovely sitting area. Stella Huang helped Wenjing and her party to look their absolute best with hair and makeup. Meanwhile, the groom and his groomsmen hung out downstairs and eased their nerves with a few games of pool. Soon after it was time for everyone to take their places.
The ceremony was full of touching moments, and within moments were husband and wife. This may have been the most excited couple we have worked with to finally be pronounced husband and wife and we could not be happier for them! Post-ceremony we took advantage of the scenic campus for some group shots and then headed off to The Westin Hotel in the Domain for the reception.
The reception was elegantly decorated by the Westin staff, with beautiful floral arrangements, cake and lightings provided by Nhan Pham. The bride and groom as well added numerous personal touches that made the event perfect. The bridal party danced its way into the reception and the party was on! Everyone in attendance was full of joy, and anyone who saw Wenjing and Sung’s first dance could see how deeply in love they are and how truly happy they are to be together.
Dinner was followed by toasts and a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, after which DJ RJ Johnson got the party truly jumping with a perfect mix of classic and current tunes. Most of the room was on the dance floor, and everyone celebrated the new couple in style.
We are so grateful to Wenjing and Sung for having us be a part of this truly joyful celebration. We wish them a bright and happy future, although we know that as long as they can remember that first dance, they will be just fine!
