Jennifer & Stephanie's Austin wedding, presented by Whitney Lee Photography

obb6With all the talk yesterday of finding the perfect suit for a lesbian bride, I figured today was the perfect time to share Jennifer & Stephanie's wedding with you, as shot by Whitney Lee Photography in Austin, TX. Stephanie lucked out with her dapper suit — her bride-to-be made it for her! See, that's what happens when your partner is a seamstress. Let's all be jealous of Stephanie for a brief moment.

These two got married in March of 09 at The Barr Mansion in Austin, TX, and the details Leah captured from their wedding are just beautiful.


Not only did she have a sweet custom-made suit, but Stephanie's converse were embroidered with their wedding date on the heel:

The two brides walked each other down the aisle … and their brother and sister served as the wedding party, keeping it really personal.

They included a sand ceremony as part of their vows … this is a great option for folks who aren't into a unity candle or unity cocktail:

This idea is brilliant — rather than a guestbook prone to the ravages of time, they asked guests to sign small stones instead:

And in keeping with the clean, organic themes of the wedding, the parting gifts were little potted bamboo plants:

Their first dance was to Jimmy Soul "If You Wanna Be Happy for the Rest of your Life":
