I was so thrilled to meet up recently with Christina Lewis of Wedding Warriors. Christina specializes in planning eco-chic, green weddings throughout the Texas Hill Country and resides in beautiful Wimberley. Christina and I tossed back ideas of setting up a vintage inspired wedding shoot in Wimberley showcasing local vendors. I am so happy to have been part of this project and to have met such wonderful people. Christina is my first ever guest poster on the blog!
A Little Bit of Heaven Inspired Wedding Shoot
By Christina Lewis – Wedding Warriors Eco-Chic Events – Wimberley, Texas
A little town nestled between Austin and San Antonio welcomes visitors with a sign saying ‘a little bit of Heaven,’ and for couples getting married here in the Hill Country, it really is. Thinking out of the box, eco-chic wedding planner Christina Lewis of Wedding Warriors and the artistry of Mariah Milan Photography decided to join their creative forces for a whimsical and vintage Wimberley inspired wedding shoot. ‘We wanted brides, especially those with a smaller wedding and budget, to think out of the box when it came to their day.’
If you are getting married in a smaller town like Wimberley, why not make use of your environs for some fabulous and offbeat photos. Mariah and I started the journey at Wimberley Inn, where innkeepers Denese and Dan were gracious in opening the revitalized and absolutely adorable doors of ‘The Greenhouse’ for us. This charming venue on the edge of Wimberley town will be available for smaller weddings soon!
We moved on to Star Antiques on River Road, where owner Lisa, was happy to participate in this creative process that Mariah and I had been discussing for some time and then decided, no more talk, let’s do it! By the way the beautiful chandelier at Wimberley Inn is from Star Antiques.
Keeping it local, the beautiful bridal bouquet was designed by Kari Shelton from WOW Factor. Breathtaking is definitely one of the words that came to mind. Kari also provided a wedding dress for us to use – the one that she wore for her wedding day!
We roped in the talented, versatile and oh so much fun Margo Mead, hair and make-up stylist! Margo is based with the award winning Jco and Company Salon in Austin.
A thank you to our groom, Justin Gadd and to our lovely bride Melissa Wells for their laughter and joy in a downtown Texas adventure.
First let’s start off at Wimberley Inn…. the afternoon light was dreamy.
The green cottage was beautifully styled by Christina Lewis.
We then moved on to Star Antiques… lovely!
A huge Thank You to all the vendors involved!
