Love was in the air for Jacob and Claudia during their fairytale Hotel Ella wedding. These two are undeniably a perfect match! They are a breath of fresh air and a joy to be around.
They met on a dating app during COVID. It was the first date for both. They met in a parking lot and sat in separate cars chatting through the open windows. The rest is history
Imagine a classic, elegant wedding, with a modern twist. Imagine your guests seated under the trees of the historic Hotel Ella sipping champagne as they watch you walk down the aisle in a stunning ballgown. Imagine a reception that feels like a party from another era as waiters serve wine and plated dinners to all your guests. Well, Jacob and Claudia didn’t have to imagine any of it because it’s exactly how it was. Stefanie from Your Wedding Your Way planned the perfect day for this perfect twosome.
Hotel Ella is a unique and beautiful venue nestled in the heart of downtown Austin, and its elegant and timeless architecture has been preserved since it opened in 1929. The historic hotel is a luxury wedding venue in Austin with remarkable service and luxury accommodations. The second story porch with its majestic columns and views of the city streets was the perfect location for Claudia and Jacob’s timeless portraits.
