The bright color of Sarah and Mario's Mexican culture was at the heart of their celebration.

The day took place at Lost Mission located in the Texas hill country. The property spans over 60 acres, with a Spanish-style chapel and reception hall at the center of the property. Details are what make this venue shine: Intricate oak and cypress wood doors, a revived church bell from a Kerrville, TX farm, church pews restored from the 1890s, and a beautiful reception hall with hand-made chandeliers and floor to ceiling drapes to set the scene.

You could see Sarah and Mario's love within the details of their wedding. Bright pink peonies and soft orange ranunculus filling bouquets and center pieces. Mexican shawls draping the shoulders of the bride and her wedding party. Small succulents on display with hand-written cards to assign seats. And a Mexican textile cake with colorful cacti and florals placed throughout.

The couple had a traditional Catholic ceremony, followed by the ringing of the chapel bell—a Lost Mission tradition for their couples. During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and music from mariachis. After dinner, Sarah and Mario kicked off their celebration with a tequila toast to get the party started!

For this wedding, I shot second for lead photographer, Anna Kay Photography. It was an incredible wedding day put together by Scarlet Rose Events, florals by Blume Haus Events, cake by The Painted Cake, DJ by Lumen Events, and venue and catering by Lost Mission.
