It only took one date for Raleisha to know Matthew was “the one”. In a loud atmosphere, she could barely hear him and went back and forth in her head on whether she should leave or tell him the truth.
We’re thrilled to showcase this charming southern wedding, styled shoot at The Mansion at ColoVista. The historic colonial-style mansion sits on 700 verdant acres, offering couples breathtaking views of the Colorado River and all the modern amenities essential for a seamless and stress-free wedding day.
“Brett proposed in the most thoughtful way I could imagine,” explained Kirsten while reminiscing on her sweet San Antonio, Texas engagement. Brett popped the big question in the first place they said, “I love you.” The couple enjoyed the intimate moment together before joining their family and friends for a surprise engagement party at the historic Hotel Emma. Later, Kirsten and Brett would find out her parents spent their honeymoon in the same spot Brett proposed. Then, they began planning their timeless black, white, and blush industrial chic wedding with the expert help of Scarlet Rose Events.
Despite growing up over 7,000 miles apart, it was destiny that brought Andrea and Vincent together. Andrea grew up on a farm in Kansas, eventually leaving the countryside to pursue a career in the hotel sales industry in New York City. Similar reasons brought Vincent to The Big Apple. While he grew up in Belgium, a career in the hotel industry also brought him to New York.
When Vincent first moved to the city, one of his coworkers suggested he meet up with Andrea who used to work there too and could offer some great insights. Vincent agreed, and the coworker called Andrea to set everything up (what a great matchmaker, right?). Initially, Andrea had just returned from the Kentucky Derby and wasn’t much interested in grabbing drinks the very next Monday. But, she finally caved and agreed to meet this mystery man.
Escape the hustle and bustle of Houston and join us in the beautiful Texas Hill Country for this romantic style shoot at Camp Lucy! The stylist for this shoot, wedding planner Scarlet Rose Events, honored Camp Lucy’s rich history with a delicate color palette of subtle blues, pinks, and creams to complement the gorgeous stonework at Ian’s Chapel (a restored Catholic church imported from Vietnam) and the natural, lush greens of the hill country. Anna Kay Photography brought our shoot to life with its signature style of capturing architecture and creating a soft, inviting atmosphere.
