After a romantic proposal shared with close friends and family (and seven years of dating, even through a difficult illness), Jami and John started planning their incredible wedding. Jami wanted a garden party with a glamorous side, but not at the sacrifice of comfort and relaxation. The result is this gorgeous Austin, TX event with chic details that lend to the wedding's warm, sophisticated vibe. The couple kept some of the usual wedding traditions, but also didn't hesitate to stray from the traditional when it made sense. Jami chose to wear a gold dress instead of classic white, and John just couldn't bring himself to part from his jeans.
