My daughter Sami has been a member of the community at Sky Candy Austin for quite some time. She takes classes, teaches classes, and performs in shows. A while back she introduced me to a friend of hers from Sky Candy, Eve Richter (now Eve Richter Dinnan). Eve had a wedding in the planning, and was going to include a circus aerial performance in it.
Okay - she wasn't going to include a performance. The wedding was a performance.
Eve and Raymond (a.k.a. R2) love each other deeply, and clearly love circus and aerial work as a very close second.
This wedding was a rare treat for me, as I knew a number of the performers and attendees. Equally delightful was seeing about eight people I have known for years as attendees, some of whom I haven't seen in the flesh in more than 10 years. Apparently Eve and I share some overlapping circles of connection.
The wedding was held at Tillery Place, which is an open space behind a plant nursery. It's a beautiful space surrounded by trees.
Here's a first look at the event. There'll be more coming. I'm still loading everything onto my computer - we had two photographers and a videographer and it's a good thing we did!
