Photos By: Mint Photography

When your family owns a ranch as gorgeous as this one, how could you resist holding your wedding on its expansive grounds? Mint Photography got behind the camera to photography Shylah and Phillip’s romantic wedding, filled with touching nods to nature and relaxed bohemian style. Aren’t you just crazy about the wildflower floral arrangements?

From the bride, Shylah: A mixture of bohemian and neutral is what I envisioned. I had always wanted to have my wedding on my family ranch that I have lived on my whole life. However, I did not want a “ranchy” wedding. My style is more natural and hippie. Under the trees and lights is the dream I had for my wedding. Natural is the word I heard from many people at our wedding. It was always hard for me to explain the look of my wedding until I heard that word and it explained it perfectly! I love all things natural. I didn’t want a whole lot of color. I just wanted the outdoors to be our decoration. Many flowers we had, besides the arrangements by the florist, were wildflowers from the side of the road we picked the morning of the wedding! I LOVE wildflowers.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? If budget allows, get a wedding planner! It took so much stress off of me and my family. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Also, get a videographer. Pictures are wonderful and all but to have a video to see exactly what all went on is so great to have! Make it different and your own. When a wedding is different than the norm is what makes a wedding super great and memorable. I have Muscular Dystrophy so my brother carried me to my dad at the beginning of the aisle where I was able to walk and Phillip carried me out during the recessional. Many said that made it so special and touching. We said our own vows to make it more personal and as Christians we wanted to wash each others feet symbolizing how we will serve each other throughout our life as Christ did the same in the Bible. All of these things helped it be different than the ordinary.

From the photographers, Allie and Kelly of Mint Photography: This bohemian DIY wedding took place on the bride’s private ranch in Brownwood TX. They found one of the biggest oaks trees on the property and cleared out the space for their ceremony. They incorporated natural, earthly elements to reflect the land around them. The ceremony was especially symbolic. It took place on her grandfathers anniversary and he also officiated the ceremony. They wrote their own vows to make it more personal and one of my favorite parts of the ceremony was the washing of their feet together, which symbolized how they will serve one another throughout their marriage together. The reception was a fun, laid back party. BBQ was served and everyone danced under the stars and lights draped from the canopy of trees.

Surprise Bridesmaid Gifts with Golden Tote!

Let us introduce you to our latest obsession: Golden Tote. If you’re not familiar with it yet, lemme just say this is an addicting, giddyness-inducing way to shop and gift. For starters, is a monthly clothing flash-sale shop that sends you a personally curated tote bag filled with the latest trends. It’s the ultimate fashion mystery grab bag packaged in a pretty tote.

Golden Tote August 2014

The first Monday of every month, Golden Tote releases a new . There are two tote sizes to choose from; a small one for $49 that includes 2-3 items, and a large one for $149 that includes 6-7 items.

Here’s what I picked for my large August tote, and what the surprise items were:


How it works: you pick a tote size. Depending on the size you choose, you start out making your first picks. For the large tote, you choose two items from the site. These items will be included in your tote and will be the starting point of your mystery items. Then you choose a style board, and the stylists will ask you to note in your order if there’s anything you don’t wear, like no purple clothing or no cargo shorts. Fill out your size for all types of clothing and wait a few days for the tote to land at your doorstep. While picking out the two pieces you really love is a whole lot of fun the real excitement starts when you open up your package to find items that you love but maybe never would have thought to try on.

These totes are such unique bridesmaid gift ideas – you can pick a tote size and let ‘s stylists curate a selection of clothing for each of your girls. All you need to let them know is what size each girl wears. We each got a tote, and each one of us selected different items and got completely different mystery pieces that we all love! Their stylists hit the nail on the head on every order. The best part of giving your bridesmaids a Golden Tote is that you can mail each tote to their own addresses. No need to ship all of them to your house then ship them again to each girl.

When this month’s tote arrived at our door the suspense of finding new and lovely clothes was thrilling and addicting. It’s like having your own personal stylist shop you unique finds for the season. Who could say no to that?

Step out this August wearing the . We are loving the black and ivory tucked into a high-waisted skirt and pair with a slim animal print belt for chic bachelorette party look or date night with your beau. For good measure, grab it in coral as well and you’ve got yourself a sweet splash of color perfect for bridal showers. The cobalt blue is a stunner. It’s so perfectly versatile you can wear this to just about any event. We envision wearing ours to an engagement party set in an urban loft or a wedding hosted in an art gallery.

Golden Tote also offers a stocked with jewelry, scarves and even more stylish outfits that you can order as you want them, or add to your tote. Another reason this the ultimate fashion grab bag is that when you order your next tote, you don’t need to worry about receiving repeat items!

Hurry over to to grab the August collection – we can honestly say we are totally smitten with ours!
