Lonestar Oaks might just be the dreamy elopement spot, at least that’s what the Murratti’s thought when they celebrated their elopement on a breezy Tuesday morning.

There is no such thing as a stereotypical wedding anymore, and that’s been a long time coming. I’m ALL for traditions, don’t get me wrong, but if a tradition doesn’t make sense to you, then why do it?

If these past two years have taught us anything, it’s that life is way too short, time flies, and family matters most. A simple lace gown, a relaxed linen jacket and a beautiful bouquet created by Simplee Cone 

 was all the adornment these two needed. Sometimes we get wrapped up in all the wedding bliss and drama, but this was 100% a pure celebration.

The Murratti’s were the calmest and happiness of any bride and groom I have photographed. If there were any wedding nerves, I couldn’t see it. They were both ready and excited to take another step together in life.

In one hour, we celebrated a union, took some stunning just married portraits in some epic locations at LoneStar Oaks, cut a delicate cake and toasted to their happiness. Away they went in a limo, off to Wimberly to an exclusive retreat in the hill country.

Now that sounds like a most perfect day to me.
