When You Own a Coffee Shop Your E-Sesh is Really, Really Cute.

Georgette and Brian, you two are THE cutest and I’m completely obsessed with your entire engagement session. Really, does it get any cooler than a coffee shop (of which you own) love sesh? I think not. Followed up by snuggling in the prettiest of fields with a fluffy white pup… can’t. even. See the entire gallery of gorgeous crafted by Sophie Epton in The Vault!

From Sophie EptonWhen Georgette and Brian told me the concept for their engagement shoot, I was so ecstatic! These two are the coolest, so I knew their engagement was going to be just as spectacular. Brian owns the most adorable coffee shop in San Antonio (and had been running it for six months!) and so it was truly fitting that we started our session there. It was such a joy-filled, fun shoot; I photographed as Brian whipped up lattes and snuggled with his future bride amongst the roasted beans and copper coffee machines.

A week later, we all traveled over to Driftwood to one of the most fantastic Hill Country venues- the Greenhouse at Driftwood. Georgette and Brian dressed up for the occasion (in suit and the dreamiest of blush BHLDN dresses) and they even brought their sweet pup, Peanut, along for the ride. We hiked amongst rocky terrain over to the most magical river, danced in the glowing grass fields at golden hour and even had a chance to go inside the infamous cacti greenhouse at the venue. It was so amazing to combine these two concepts and looks into one incredible, personal engagement session that truly showcases these two as a couple and their journey together.

A Fresh Take on An Industrial Wedding With Serious Pops of Color

I’m never surprised when a graphic designer becomes a bride and her wedding is AMAZING. There’s something about a designer’s knack for aesthetics that always translates to pretty and this day is certainly no exception. It’s a fresh take on the industrial chic style with unexpected moments like ghost chairs for the win. Go see the rehearsal dinner in the gallery, along with every capture by Michelle Boyd.

From Michelle Boyd PhotographyTaylor and Adam were married on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at the historic Hotel Emma in San Antonio. (The hotel building was originally The Pearl Brewery’s Brewhouse, which was built in 1894.) Taylor and Adam have special ties to the hotel because both Adam and the bride’s father contributed to its construction.

For the overall design of the space, we drew inspiration directly from the hotel, which combines old world elegance, and a mix of industrial and modern touches. We brought in luxe, patterned linens from La Tavola and ghost chairs for dining. Sprout designed lush florals (seriously, those bouquets!) which added pops of soft, pretty color throughout the space.

The bride is an incredibly talented graphic designer, and she designed all of the paper goods for the day, which included an illustration of the landmark hotel that they love. (Not to mention letterpress for days, gold edge painting, wax seals, and Frou Frou ribbon to bundle each suite together!) Their day-of paper goods also featured modern, acrylic touches.

The hotel itself has a huge culinary emphasis. One of our favorite details from the evening is the gorgeous marble-clad, fully functioning display kitchen, which we flipped three times to use throughout the night: First for sign-in, then for cocktail hour (the chef prepped and served appetizers from this space!), and finally for an incredible dessert display, complete with three cakes and hundreds of assorted pastries.

Following dinner, toasts, and desserts, The Night Owls opened the dance floor and kept everyone dancing (and singing!) until Taylor and Adam’s sparkler departure. After a quick wardrobe change, they joined the after-party where Matthew Rubio with the Flashdance played to a packed room until the early morning.

Working with Taylor and Adam and their families was a dream. They are kind, talented, and so very in love. So thankful for the incredible team behind this day that pulled together to achieve every thoughtful, beautifully executed detail for this sweet couple.

A Day With Earthy Floral Greenery Done So Right

It’s hard to believe that Lauren & Jon planned their celebration from afar. Knowing that fact alone we’re in awe, but add in a romantic palette, earthy greenery, and one majorly elegant gown and our jaws drop. Oh and the stationery goods were designed by the Bride – ah-mazing, right?! Loft Photography and Brad & Monica Wedding Films filmed every second to share and we’ve got it in The Vault!

From Loft Photography… We swoon over weddings with thoughtful details strewn throughout the day, and Lauren & Jon’s day had just that. A romantic color palette, earthy greenery and florals, gorgeous stationery and elegant gowns are just a few of the elements we loved about this wedding. And Hotel Havana was the ideal backdrop for this fun-loving couple as they prepared for their wedding festivities. Lauren, being the talented graphic designer that she is, created all of the stunning paper goods herself. And we love the minimal & ethereal table centerpieces at the reception, which perfectly complimented the delicious family style catering from Royal Fig. We must admit, we’re a little envious of Lauren & Jon’s dance moves, they tore up the dance floor thanks to a little help from London Calling! These two planned their wedding day from afar, and we think they nailed it!
