Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center was the reception venue Haley and Michael chose for their outdoor garden Austin wedding, and the dreamy setting was a vision come to life for this sweet couple! So many pretty details amidst gorgeous florals by Bouquets of Austin in the outdoor evening air was pure romance. You must see this gorgeous gallery!

Haley and Michael met while living in the same dorm during their freshman year at Texas A&M University. They spent a little time studying together that year, but reconnected in graduate school. She had just returned from a trip to New York City and he had recently accepted a job there. Discovering this connection, they grew closer and he asked her out. The pair shared a memorable first date – Haley spent the first 30 minutes finishing an assignment! – but they quickly became inseparable.
Michael surprised Haley by proposing at their favorite spot in Central Park on a chilly February day. Over the years, the couple would visit the spot for a picnic, listen to their favorite songs and enjoy the views. As they listened to music during this visit, Michael suggested Haley pose for a photo facing the skyline. When she turned around, she saw him down on one knee – an image she will never forget!
