Nothing says spring quite like lush florals and pretty pastels, and this slice of stunning is filled with plenty of both. Jessica Gold Photography captured beautiful bouquets, fancy floral crowns, and gorgeous BHLDN gowns, all in a gallery I’m sure to revisit time and time again, here!
From Jessica Gold Photography… As winter comes to an end, this shoot had us dreaming of spring! First, we love the neutral tones displayed through the details. Between the blush, golds, greys, and other colors, we adore the palette that brings the feeling of a spring wedding. This is seen through the bridal party fashion, invitation suite, shoes, accessories, and more! As for the tablescape, we love the wood and mismatching chairs accented with simple greenery for chair backs. As for the display of the table, we have a simple beige table runner, candle holders, and a lush centerpiece. The centerpiece is the eye-catcher of the table, complimented by other details. For each table setting, we love a personalized menu for each guest, tied with a ribbon and some greenery! And as for the china and wineglasses, gold is never out of style! To continue with gold, we love the gold wedding cake! What better way to celebrate a spring wedding than with a gorgeous floral-accented gold wedding cake?! The florals absolutely take our breath away; nothing says spring like lush and gorgeous florals! We love the use of peonies, tulips, and greenery to fill the floral arrangements. As for the bridal style, we love the blush wedding dress and grey bridesmaids dresses to finish the look! To finish the bride’s look, her gold hair pins accent her elegant bun and bring together her ethereal look. As for the bridesmaids, what else says spring other than beautiful floral crowns?!
This beautiful day? It’s gorgeous. The kind of gorgeous that can only be planned by the talented In Style Weddings & Destinations and features one of the sweetest love stories you’ll ever read. Think two young loves going their separate ways, only to be reunited years later over a song and a memory. It’s a fairytale beginning to what is sure to be an epic love story. See it all captured by Amanda Hartfield right here and the sweet film from Jacob Bondesen below.
From the Bride… Bradley and I both were born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. We met when I was seventeen, a senior in high school, and he was one year into college. His little brother and I were friends, which brought me to his parents’ house one Super Bowl Sunday. We dated a couple years and into my sophomore year of college, and then went our separate ways. Our paths took us in different directions as I eventually moved to Denver, Colorado and he stayed in our home town and worked on starting his own business. He was at a Texas country concert and heard a song that reminded him of me. The next day, he called me. It was like we were never apart. Soon after, we made plans to meet in Austin for dinner. Our relationship was rekindled and less than nine months later he proposed while visiting me over Valentine’s Day weekend in Denver.
This ultimately brought me back to Texas where we spent several months planning our long-awaited wedding (I had wanted to marry him since we first met). We wanted our wedding to reflect our journey and crooked path toward our special love story. We decided that it was only appropriate that we get married standing underneath Texas Oak Trees in the Hill Country right outside of San Antonio. We got married on the seventeenth, the age I fell in love with Bradley. Lost Mission was the timeless venue we had been looking for. We also had Texas Country singer Jeffrey Charles play an acoustic set at our cocktail hour. Music had been such a large part of our relationship and we knew it helped tell our story.
Since Colorado was the backdrop of much of our “falling back in love” moments, we knew we had to incorporate it in our wedding. We picked (biodegradable) fake snow as our send off, which was one of my favorite moments of the night. Seeing all of our family and friends waving goodbye and sending farewells, was such a huge moment for us. We walked with gratitude as each guest played such an important role in our love story.
Of all the moments woven into a wedding day, it’s the quiet getting ready captures that make me weak in the knees. A beautiful woman being transformed into a Bride just hits my heart the right way. And in between all those layers of flirty fabric and soft curls lives an undeniable anticipation, which Mint Photography completely encompassed in this Terradorna session. It’s dreamy and downright gorgeous, to say the least.
From Mint Photography…This styled bridal session was inspired by the beautiful Lazaro gown we got our hands on from Serendipity Bridal. We wanted to keep the look of the session clean and light filled, just highlighting the intricacy of the dress and the beautiful accessories by Olivia Nelson. We’re obsessed with neutral walls and window light so we loved that Terradorna had the perfect spot to capture images like this. We love the idea that a bridal session can be kept minimal but still insanely beautiful.
This wedding is gorgeous; drop-dead gorgeous, actually. But behind all of the breathtaking details is an amazing story that will make your heart happy. It’s two sweeties saying “I do” in classic Texas style with a sweet surprise from the groom’s family, all overseen by the lovely Sarah Reed from Let’s Do It Vows. Soak in all of the pretty captured by Al Gawlik here, and the sweet film from Photohouse Films below.
From Let’s Do It Vows… Rosalyn, an American, and Christian, a Swede, were originally married in his home country. However, they wanted to also have a wedding in Texas, so they could celebrate with their US friends. Due to various factors, Christian’s family couldn’t attend the Texan ceremony (or so he thought!). The couple thoughtfully planned all the details, and Rosalyn planned one more … to surprise Christian by flying his family over to join in the celebration. The ceremony was going as planned, when mid-way through, Christian’s two brothers and their families entered, surprising everyone (except the bride and a select few who were “in the know”) and bringing the bride and groom, and many other guests, to tears! This wedding was a perfect illustration of a beautiful bride’s generosity and a couple’s love for each other and their family. Watch the amazing video for the full story!
From Mint Photography…We styled this “wedding day” at one of the newest venues in Belton – La Rio Mansion. We wanted to highlight everything this venue had to offer – from the beautiful spanish inspired architecture to the abundance of gorgeous nature surrounding the property! I mean how perfect is the sunset behind the “ceremony tree”?! The sun could not set in a better spot at this amazing location! We wanted to keep the color scheme light and minimal, providing just enough color to pop off of the whites and greens in the location itself. We love how the images came out and we can’t wait for brides to start booking their wedding day at La Rio Mansion!
We’ve got quite the treat for you on the LBB Blog today, SMPers—not one, but two shoots from Mint Photography set at the gorgeous La Rio Mansion. To say I’ve been excited to share these beauties with you all week is quite the understatement. First up, we’ve got this engagement sesh complete with a Hayley Paige dress from Blush Bridal Lounge. Stay tuned for the wedding shoot this afternoon!

From Mint Photography…This engagement session was styled to highlight the property of the new gorgeous Belton venue – La Rio Mansion. We took one of our real couples and dressed them up in a short Hayley Paige dress and vintage YSL jacket. The pale pink and navy blue popped perfectly off of the lush green backdrops that this property offers. Not to mention the navy blue blending perfectly with the spanish tiles the property also boasts. We love the light that came in – just in the perfect hazy amount – to warm up this beautiful winter day.
