From Mint PhotographyWe 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!

La Rio Mansion Styled Engagement Session

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 PhotographyThis 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.

From the Bride… We met in Monterey, so it seemed natural to get married there. Our vision came from knowing what we wanted the day to feel like, and we went from there!

From Jen RodriguezThey incorporated lots of burlap, vintage suitcases, bunting, etc. to bring out the vintage chic feel that they wanted. The couple was married at the charming Old Whaling Station and after the ceremony the guests were escorted to the reception space with music.

Elegant Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding

Every time I set sights on Lowndes Grove Plantation, I get a cozy, warm feeling inside like I’m at home. Call it the Southern hospitality or just how darn gorgeous this venue is, but it’s captivating for sure. And when you throw a team of talented vendors in the mix to craft a downright beautiful wedding day? It’s all over. Aaron & Jill Osteen gracefully captured this elegant soiree and you can feast on every bit here.

From Aaron & Jill OsteenHave you ever wondered what it would be like to attend a beautiful quintessential Southern wedding?! Well, pull up your chairs, because you’re about to get a sneak peak into one of our favorites to date! Stephanie and Chad envisioned their wedding day with hospitality in mind, so they enlisted the help of the incredibly talented ladies at Pure Luxe Bride, to bring their vision to life! They wanted their guests to feel as if they were coming to a wedding at their family’s historic Charleston home, welcome to move about as they pleased! I’m 100% sure they pulled off their vision! I’ve never heard so many wedding guests rave about the decor, the house, the views… it seemed as if every corner I turned, someone was saying they wished they could come back and relive this night every year! What a wonderful compliment, huh?!

The entire house at Lowndes Grove was open to their guests to roam around during cocktail hour! Most could be found sipping drinks on the porch while the incredibly talented 3 piece jazz band serenaded them on the 2nd floor foyer! The weather was warm, the sunset was to die for, the guests enjoyed sets of rocking chairs in the cigar lounge by the water, their reception tent was draped in white linen and chandeliers, the tables were set with gold silverware and gold rimmed glassware, the beautiful menus were graced with hand sketched pictures of the venue, and magnolia and olive branch table runners ran the entire length of the longest tables I’ve seen to date! The 3 course seated dinner was incredible, the beautiful white bar and tufted gray couches allowed guests a chance to get out of their seats and mingle with other guests! The band played Big Band music all night long and had the dance floor hopping!! A vintage rolls royce swept Stephanie & Chad off to their after party downtown… and what more can I say! It was just PERFECT, and we’re so happy for Steph & Chad because we know it was perfect for them too!

Stephanie and Chad’s wedding was stunning! It was magical! It was oozing with Southern charm… and in our eyes, it was perfect… and there’s nothing more we could want for such a sweet, generous, thankful, and gracious couple like them! I’m not sure we stopped smiling all night that night and we’re still dreaming of their wedding day and the chance we had to be with them on the day they committed to forever together! Congratulations!!

From A Charming FeteAs we’re experiencing freezing cold negative temperatures in the Midwest we wanted to channel spring “through the Glasshouse” (at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens). We captured the natural beauty of our model in this warm rainforest-like environment with layers and layers of lush foliage and playful, bright colors all through the film lens of Lauren Gabrielle. The delicately beaded bridal gown by Sarah Janks is so soft and dreamy yet showcases the most intricate design details. A bright bouquet full of lavender, hot pink and white ranunculus and the most decadent dripping peachy/orange sweet pea pops against this gentle palette. We wanted the second gown to be all-out colorful and fun. This blue patterned and flowy Donna Morgan gown was such a perfect and unique counterpart to the bouquet. We styled the hand painted macarons and cake on vintage blue glass mosaic trivets. We set the table with botanical vintage china place settings complete with a tinted amethyst champagne glass. The rock ledges, climbing vines and waterfall provided a perfect backdrop, a botanical oasis.
