Lynne and Mark's Intimate Scottish Wedding in Austin, Texas


There's something special about getting to witness a long distance relationship lose the distance. Mark is from Texas, and Lynne from Scotland. Lynne and Mark met while studying for the same masters degree in Edinburgh. After their degree, they had to go long distance for a year and a half. Many air miles later, Mark proposed to Lynne under the Century Tree during her first visit to the Texas A&M campus. Several weeks before the wedding, Lynne made the move to Texas to begin their married life together.

Lynne and Mark planned on having a destination wedding but ended up deciding to pick a destination that was within driving distance. Chapel Dulcinea sits in Austin, TX, on the edge of the Texas Hill Country. Lynne mentioned to me that she fell in love with its European architecture and romantic vibe. It really is unlike anything else that you find in this part of Texas.

I love that they decided to add a bit of Scottish charm to their wedding, and had the men and ring bearers don kilts. Texas and Scotland came together beautifully at this little outdoor chapel in Austin.

With only family in attendance for this intimate wedding, Lynne and Mark had their reception at a private home in the Westlake Hills. We took a few minutes and stopped along the way to take some portraits at a quiet little spot in an Austin park. This is always one of my favorite times of the wedding day. I love the opportunity wedding portraits provide for a Bride and Groom to get away from everyone, take a breath, and have a little alone time on a hectic day.

So many congratulations to you, Lynne and Mark! I am so happy for the two of you and wish you many years of happiness in love and in life.
