Elegant Grand Texana Styled Shoot

joyful bride and groom at grand texana wedding venue in hempstead texas

OBSESSED with this gorgeous, romantic, rustic, chic, all around amazing styled shoot a fellow photographer put together!! All of the models were beautiful, there were REAL flowers, everything was put together and styled so beautifully, and the venue was to die for, I LOVE when places are all white on the inside, literally a photographers dream! Some seriously talented vendors got together for this one! If you’re getting married in the Houston area, DEFINITELY be sure you make it to the bottom of this post to see all the vendors and check them out.

The day was seriously perfect. It was sunny and 75, literally. I was so excited the sun was out. We had just come back in town from our Austin trip, after unpacking the truck and hanging out for a little bit, I headed on over to Hempstead to The Grand Texana, I’d never been there but heard the name, y’all, it’s BEAUTIFUL. It’s on this gorgeous piece of property in the country so the outdoor portrait locations are basically LIMITLESS. As a natural light photographer, I could shoot here all day everyday.

I loved the theme Reed had envisioned and that Olivia executed SO beautifully. The tables were perfect and her attention to detail was obvious, I always love meeting a fellow perfectionist, haha! I also really appreciated the use of REAL flowers, the styled shoots I’ve been to so far are fake flowers, and while still beautiful, it’s hard to take close-up detail shots with fake flowers in the background, in my opinion! Plus it smelled great, bonus!

If you like looking at pretty things, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this post! I know I’m excited about it 🙂
