This wedding day right here? It brought me back to my very own. Not for the similar peachy blush palette or air of romantic elegance, but for the ear-to-ear grins of anticipation, the hold-me-tight first look kisses, the we-just-got-married! giggles and the moments when you feel like you’re the only two in the room. Those bits are what make up a truly special day (and let’s face it, a pretty tablescape never hurt anyone). Mint Photography captured it all, here in THE VAULT.
From Mint Photography…This might just be one of our favorite weddings of 2015! Ashley and Alex are such a beautiful and memorizing couple. from the moment we met them, It was easy to see how head over heels in love they were. Ashley has incredible style and it showed throughout her wedding details. The atmosphere felt upscale and romantic while still having an understated elegance to it. From the beautiful venue, to the florals, to how insanely amazing her gown fit her…everything about their day was just perfect!

I can’t decide what I like most about this wedding—the sweet watercolor invitations, the precious flower girls and ring bearers, the pretty wedding cake, the gorgeous River Oaks Garden Club or the crazy-in-love Bride and Groom. Luckily I don’t have to decide, because the photos from Mint Photography are totally pin-worthy. See them all here.

From Mint Photography…This gorgeous affair took place at the insanely beautiful River Oaks Garden Club. The detailing of the venue alone makes for one jaw-dropping event. Kayley and Clayton designed their wedding off the beauty and garden style feel of the venue. Delicate touches of pinks and green hues were applied throughout the details of their day giving the event a soft, romantic, and garden-inspired feel. The majority of the wedding was held outdoors, in multiple garden areas throughout the property.

From The Groom… When I started thinking about whom I envision standing next to me when I get to marry my beautiful fiancée, Ashley, I knew that I wanted to ask my groomsmen and ushers in a fun and creative way. I began looking into different things I could do that they would appreciate and enjoy. The goal was to set the tone not only for the wedding itself, but also for the process leading up to the wedding. My goal is for them to have the time of their lives as they help me to prepare for my journey with my wife-to-be. Ashley and I started by going to Manready Mercantile; a place I knew I could find masculine and unique “goods.” While there, I found really cool decks of cards as wells as toothpicks soaked in flavors such as “Six-year-old barrel aged Kentucky straight bourbon” and “Single Malt Scotch.” I also found natural soap with scents like “Bay Rum” and “Cedar Citrus,” and wax-dipped whiskey glasses. Included with these were little bags and stickers with the Manready logo. As I was checking out, Ashley along with the one of the owners thought of the idea to present these groomsmen gifts in Cigar boxes filled with a shredded Wall Street Journal. The owner scrounged up some unused cigar boxes from the closet, and Ashley and I left with a great start to what would become by groomsmen invitation. I added to the box custom bottle openers with each groomsmen’s name and position (Groomsmen/Usher), a book entitled “Stuff Every Man Should Know,” a shooter of Gentleman Jack, and a hand written card formally asking each person to be a part of my wedding party. I enjoyed putting this together for some of the most important guys in my life and I look forward to celebrating our wedding with them by my side.
