Earlier this week we took our readers on a tour of Hacienda El Carmen (here, here and here!) host to the inspiring Jose Villa Workshops for the past ten years. It’s where last fall, photographers eager to learn from the best of the best, Jose Villa himself, joined together with top notch vendors to shoot scenes that I continue to pour over six months later. So for this special edition of our Must See LBB moments we’re looking at some of the all star LBB members who played a part in all the perfection that took place.

I love classic Southern celebrations but add in an amazingly chic dress and now we’re really talking. This Austin Scarlett masterpiece is one for the books and we’ve already pinned to our boards to ogle at for weeks to come. It’s the icing on the cake of this whole wedding planned and designed by Ooh! Events, and captured for our lucky eyes by Clay Austin. See it all in our Vault right this way!

From Ooh! Events… Sarah and Pablo met in New York at a party. Pablo walked in and Sarah was determined to meet him. The rest is history – his original plan was to only be in New York temporarily, but when he met Sarah his plan changed and their love story grew in the Big Apple.
Sarah’s family has a place in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and they wanted to choose a place that was just “Sarah and Pablo” so they landed on the grandeur and beauty of a Sunday wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation on October 25, 2015.
