Shannon + Jason

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

Shannon, an art curator turned bar owner, 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 and colors 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.
