The Veranda Styled shoot
Filled with sumptuous floral, glamour, and opulent elegance, this shoot was inspired by a garden-style themed wedding featuring a palette of rich hues of pink blush, dusty rose, warm ivories, and ornate greenery. When we think of a garden, we think of fairy tales, romance, magical, and whimsical vibes. We wanted to bring that vision to life, and our team of talented vendors perfectly captured the beauty in this styled shoot photographed by Shy Laurel Photography and coordinated by Graceful Moments Weddings + Events.
The scene took place at The Veranda, the original “castle on the hill,” nestled in a lush green haven in the heart of San Antonio. The 1931 estate house built of local stone is encompassed by an artist cottage, an airy-covered pavilion, and rolling, oak-lined lawns.
The bride looked flawless in a Justin Alexander champagne colored ball gown by Olivia Grace Bridal. The beauty team, Rebecca of Lone Star Beauty B.A.R created romantic lush blonde curls, and Viva La Glam completed the bridal look with a soft blush lip. The bridesmaids wore on-trend, mismatched gowns by Bella Bridesmaids San Antonio that can be worn in either in spring or summer. The groom wore a handsome three-piece gray suit with a dusty rose tie from Rex Formal Wear
We were taken aback with the garden-inspired centerpieces that adorned the tablescape by from His garden. The invitations made by Aly Am Paperie kept with the garden theme by using blush and rose overtones.
And, no sweet tooth was left unhappy with a pristine white, four-tiered cake decked with perfectly placed florals created by Little Muse Cakes and Catering. The signature drink, poured by Spice of Life Catering, brought a personal flair to this bar.
