Thurman’s Mansion Wedding : Kim and Mitch

August 1, 2013

Kim and Mitch’s wedding this past November at Thurman’s Mansion was inspired by their Texas roots and the beautiful Texas hill country. The bride wore cowboy boots for her hillcountry wedding. Her Pink Tulip invitations pictured are letterpressed with navy blue text and an illustration of a tree. Here is a picture of the couple's venue, Thurman's Mansion. The groom wore a Hugo Boss suit with a Burberry tie along with brown dress shoes and argyle socks. The groomsmen having fun before the wedding and giving the groom a massage. The groomsmen cheersing to the groom before the wedding begins. The bride laughing with her bridesmaids while they get ready. The mother of the bride helping the bride into her Monique Lhuillier dress.

The outdoor wedding with rustic wood tables and festoon lighting. A chalkboard welcomed the guests at the entrance with an array of flowers done by Unexpected Elements.

Kim and Mitch chose to have an intimate first look to enjoy some moments alone before the busy evening ahead. Portraits were super important to them and having that extra time really allow for us to create a beautiful set of images for them.

Here is the groom about to see his bride for the first time. The groom admiring his beautiful bride. A moment between the bride and groom before the wedding starts.

This image below under the magnificent live oak tree is one of my favorite shots from the wedding day.

The bridal party styling was top notch. Love the grey and navy blue combination.

A bit from the bride:

Were there any special additions to your ceremony that made it unique? Yes.  First, we were married by Mitch’s former boss in the Air Force so the ceremony was very funny, personal, and meaningful. Second, we paid tribute to Mitch’s deceased mother by lighting a candle in her honor. Lastly, because Mitch loves the bagpipes and his mother’s favorite hymnal was Amazing Grace, I surprised Mitch and our guests with a bagpipe player who came out and played Amazing Grace while we lit the candle in his mother’s honor.
What was the best moment of your wedding day? There are too many to choose from! It truly was a dream come true! If I had to pick it would be seeing each other for the first time, watching Mitch’s face when he realized what was happening with the bagpipes, and the 5 minutes after the ceremony when our whole bridal party was cheering and hugging. It was such an incredible day!

About the couple: Kim grew up in Houston and Mitch grew up in San Antonio, they met in a class at the McCombs School of Business while Mitch was in his 2nd year of the MBA program and Kim was in her first year.
