Jennifer & William


Jennifer and William’s March wedding at the Four Seasons in Austin, TX had an elegant and modern feel with nostalgic details. These two now live in New York City, but they met in Austin and both attended the University of Texas. Their reception featured several fun details in honor of their time living in Austin. I flew to NYC for their engagement photos and I knew from there that Jennifer and William’s wedding day would be incredible!

For their wedding, Jennifer knew she wanted a timeless gown that felt effortless and comfortable. Her wedding dress was the first dress she tried on and she knew it was perfect! It checked the boxes of being unique, but still simple and elegant!

After getting ready, Jennifer and William did a first look outside followed by wedding party photos. Champagne is Jennifer’s beverage of choice, so elements of champagne were sprinkled throughout their wedding day like her bridesmaids in champagne-colored dresses! At the reception their table escort cards were placed in champagne corks. Right after guests took their card, there was a champagne cart to grab a glass to kick off cocktail hour with! 

Their wedding ceremony took place inside the Four Seasons hotel. Black and clear acrylic chairs filled the ceremony space and candles lined the aisle to create a warm ambiance. Jennifer and William exchanged their vows beneath a breathtaking chuppah covered in white baby’s breath flowers.

During their reception, loved ones and wedding party members gave incredible speeches that filled the room with both laughter and tear-filled eyes. As the dancing began, Taylor Pace Orchestra blew everyone away. They kept the dance floor full the entire night, which is exactly what Jennifer and William wanted! 

Some of their favorite wedding reception details were a tribute to their time in Austin, which is where they met. Their wedding cake had a U.T. burnt orange center. Inspired by Austin City Limits, their after-party theme was a play on their newly shared last name, “Bernstien City Limits”. Their late-night wedding snack was catered by Roppolos Pizza which is a pizza place on 6th street they frequented in college. Seeing these details come to life made the night really special for Jennifer and William!

The KHP Experience

This is what Jennifer and William had to say about their experience working with me: 

“Kelly and her team could not have made us feel more comfortable. . .She perfectly balanced guiding us through the photography sessions when it made sense, while at other times sitting back and just capturing authentic moments. We also greatly appreciated her encouraging us to do an engagement shoot, and her even traveling all the way to NYC for it. It was so much fun!”

I loved all the time I spent with Jennifer and William from exploring favorite places in New York with them through celebrating their wedding day! Congrats to the Bernstiens!
