Shannon + Jason

A personal, easy-going wedding with west Texas vibes and east Austin wildflowers.

Shannon, an art curator and designer, and Jason, a graphic designer who runs a youth skateboarding nonprofit, wanted a wedding that felt as easy as a backyard barbecue but also captured their exceptional design aesthetic. They threw a damn fine party at The Long Time, home of Austin’s sandlot baseball team, the Texas Playboys. West Texas minimalism inspired the design, from invitations to furniture to signage. Taylor created a sweeping ceremony installation on a massive live oak using roses, wildflowers, dried palm leaves, and foraged grasses. Guests two-stepped late into the night to the raucous sounds of local honkytonk band Mayeux & Broussard, fortified by tequila cocktails and local beer.
