Mission San Jose – TIMELESS BEAUTY
Cool stone walls behind flickering candle light, filligree accessories among rustic ambience, wild flowers on plain wooden tables and a dark-haired beauty in the tender light of sundown – that´s what eventdesigner Without Wax, Katy and Mayhar Design used to create a story from out of this world.
Gracefully and patiently the gorgeous bride waits for her lover to arrive, strolls abstractedly through the abandoned ruins of Mission San Jose and rejoices in the well smelling flowers around her.
Slowly the sun goes down and dunks the incidents into a dreamy kind of light and grants golden sparkling accents a little more elegance than they already had.
Eventdesigner Without Wax, Katy and Mayhar Design revealed some details: „When we decided to jointly collaborate on a photo shoot, we were unanimous in our desire to create something that was authentic and timeless and above all, honored and enhanced the original beauty of the environment. Our hearts fell immediately in love with the breathtaking backdrop of San Antonio’s Mission San Jose. After an initial site visit, we quickly set to planning, basing all color and design direction around the color palette and detailing of the mission itself. We quickly brought on a team of local artisans that we dearly admired and are so thrilled with the gifts and talent that each person brought to the table!”
Taylor Lord is the fantastic photographer behind these breathtaking pictures. Like no other she knows how to capture lights and moods perfectly on camera and is blessed with the feeling for the right moments. Let´s enjoy her photos together…
