From Mint Photography… Melanie and Frank’s wedding took place at one of the most unique venues in the Austin area, Le San Michele. We love the mix of architecture and nature that this venue provides. Melanie’s bridal style was impeccable. She looked beyond elegant. The whole day was styled impeccably, and this couple was the sweetest – we couldn’t be happier to have been a part in capturing everything!
From the Bride… Leading up to our day took a lot of planning. Our first objective was to find that perfect venue for a garden wedding. We knew that we wanted something timeless and vintage, but finding the right kind of venue was a task. We decided on a venue that best described Versailles meets Sante Fe. We love to travel and lived abroad, so the atmosphere that was created fit our personalities and lifestyle perfectly. We rented various lounging areas that set up the relaxed vibe but something that matched our colors, which were blush and lavender. My husband made our seating chart which was a peg board made into a door. Our guests picked a key and then found their table, in which laid a matching door knob. He is so handy! We did have limited floral arrangements; we only really used them for our arch way, centerpieces and of course boutonnieres. To save money the flowers were primarily seasonal and color coordinated. I mixed my bouqet with succulents which my husband and I fell in love with. If I were to give any advice in planning this theme is to have very subtle accents of color and decor.
