Mint Equestrian Kendall Plantation Wedding

If this is the result of a well timed downpour, I hope that every wedding in 2014 is preceded by a great, big rain storm because the light, captured by Mint Photography, is quite possibly the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen. And it shines perfectly on this stunning, stunning wedding!

From the phtographer… The romantic affair took place at the beautiful Kendall Plantation. A gem of a venue that sits in the bill country of Boerne Tx. Their details were adorned with soft shades of pastels, timeless details, and a backdrop that will make you ohh and ahh. What was so magical about this day was it poured all day long and minutes before the ceremony the rain cleared and we were left this beautiful perfect and even light. Enjoy!!

Texas Hill Country Wedding at Don Strange Ranch from Ryan Ray Photography

We’ve been chomping at the bit over the long weekend go get this week started on SMP, particularly because this pretty little number by Ryan Ray was first on the lineup of lovely. Thankfully the time has come to share the pretty, so we don’t have to wait a moment longer to soak up all the sweetness of this Texas fête. One little scroll through all the gorgeous images and you’ll see why we had ants in our pants to get it on your screen – and believe it or not, there is so much more to swoon over right here!

From the Bride… The most important aspect of our wedding was being wed before God with all of our friends and family there in support. As long as that was our focus, we knew the wedding itself would be beautiful. We had many more guests than we originally anticipated, so we tried to keep the ceremony and reception intimate with as many personal details as possible. These included all of the groom’s favorite deserts at his cake table, honey from the county his parents grew up in for favors, a picture of the bride’s grandfather sewn to her bouquet, a family Bible as the ring pillow and a stone altar that was transported to the family ranch for generations to come to enjoy. Our ceremony was held outdoors in the Texas Hill Country and we could not have been more lucky with the weather in May! The creek was running, the clouds rolled over right before the bridal processional, and the breeze was perfect. While most people look forward to the reception, we will never forget our wedding ceremony!

Boerne Wedding at Kendall Plantation by Archetype Studio Inc.

There is something so sweet about a soiree filled to the brim with southern elegance. It’s one of the reasons we can’t get enough of SMP Texas – y’all do southern elegance like no other! This pretty party captured by Archetype Studio Inc. is the perfect example of classic style meets southern charm, and we couldn’t love it more. With a pretty as can be color palette, florals galore and homemade margaritas as the signature cocktail (which the Groom made the night before!), this is one full gallery of images that can’t be missed!

And before we send you off into the weekend, here’s this adorable duo’s fabulous wedding film by Weiss Eubanks Films

From the Bride… Brian and I knew instantly that we wanted to get married in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, and at the same time, we wanted to bring a sense of elegance to the countryside. We found our venue Kendall Plantation before they even started building it, but we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. Southern elegance mixed with Texas Hill Country charm — what could be better? We chose navy and pink as our color scheme because, naturally, I love pink, and navy is such a classic color. I just loved the combo especially the way pink can just pop next to the navy (hence the hot pink bridesmaid shoes!). Shopping for my dress was easy. I knew within a week of getting engaged it was the one — when you know you know! I loved the way it was very form fitting and simple with just some beading on the belt and on the side where it gathers.

After a year and a half of planning, there was still lots of stress all the way to the very end, but there were also many great friendships formed and tons of memories made in the process. Our wedding to us was — charming, upbeat and unforgettable. It was everything we could have imagined it would be and more. One of the most meaningful things to me at the wedding was getting to walk down the aisle with my dad, who nearly lost his life this last year. He spent five months trying to learn how to walk again. Getting down those steps was his biggest goal and well accomplished! Another really meaningful thing to us was getting married by our pastor, who also married my parents many years ago.

I loved that there was such a large abundance of flowers everywhere, from the ceremony outside to the tabletops of the reception inside. My bouquet was everything I had dreamed about since I was a little girl — a tight collection of white roses and peonies (my favorite). Our guests were greeted after the ceremony with our signature cocktail drink of strawberry margaritas  — which Brian made himself the day before — served in mason jars with navy and pink striped straws. My maids of honor and bridesmaids surprised us with a hilarious Ice Ice Baby rap/dance instead of the traditional speech, which totally caught me off guard but was beyond hilarious and perfectly matched my personality. The band then kicked off the night with a bunch of oldies dance music, and the photo booth with its hilarious props was a continuous hit all night! My favorite memory of the evening was looking into my future husband’s eyes during the ceremony and not being nervous at all about taking that step but just getting lost in his stare and thinking about how happy we are.
