Woodbine Mansion Wedding & Bridal Portraits
We are totally awed by this new wedding venue in Round Rock, Texas. The Woodbine Mansion is set to open its doors for their first event in June. The historic mansion built in 1900 has undergone massive renovations with new owners (while keeping with the beautiful nuances of its original architecture). They did a phenomenal job of preserving as much old history as possible, so the mansion feels like you’re stepping back in time when you cross the threshold of this grand home. An ornate iron gate ushers guests into the estate, and gorgeous white columns stand tall at the front of the mansion. Even with its stately grandeur, the property and home feel welcoming with the bright colors, lighting, and vibrant landscaping. Its beauty is truly alluring.
What this Means for Your Wedding
The estate sprawls out over 1.5 acres of lush land and has served as a Texas Historic Landmark since 1973. The Woodbine Mansions accommodates both indoor and outdoor events, and their private gardens are breathtaking for celebrating in the open air. For more formal events, they offer two spacious courtyards for outdoor entertaining with an elegant gazebo and garden trellis. Inside, both the first and second floors of the mansion are available to guests, including FIVE private changing rooms! Your vendor will love this venue, too, as they’ve incorporated vendor green rooms – they really have it all!
Even though they aren’t quite open, the owners gave us the pleasure of using their mansion as a gorgeous backdrop for these two bridal portraits. We’re very excited to highlight this venue and these radiant brides on our blog!
Annie’s bridals were taken in March when wisteria in full bloom under the patio pergola. If you’ve never witnessed it, springtime is the most glorious season around the Texas hill country. The heat hasn’t hit, and everything looks so full of life and colorful! And the day couldn’t have been more perfect. The flowers paired with her fitted white gown and updo looked like something from a dream. We love the sheer lace sides of her dress! She looked stunning. When she smiled, we were blown away. Annie is so beautiful inside and out, and we couldn’t be happier for her as she gets ready to tie the knot!
For Cristine’s bridals, we started off in the black and white tile sunroom. We LOVE this unique combination—soft light illuminates the entire room through adjacent walls filled with floor-to-ceiling windows while the black chandelier and tiles add some elegant contrast. Just as the sun was starting to set, we moved to the front steps with the white pillars and giant rhododendron tree as the backdrop. The soft glow of the sun spread out over the veranda, and Cristine looked so lovely in her white ballgown dress. Of course, you gotta show off the Louboutin heels if you have them!
Cristine’s mom came along to help out, and I couldn’t help but document some sweet candid moments between the two of them as we moved from location to location. Their relationship is obviously really special. I have a feeling these photos will be treasured just as much as her bridal portraits. It was so much fun getting to document such special photos for special ladies.
What an honor to be among the few first photographers to shoot here! After relishing in the beauty of the estate during our time there, we wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes one of the most sought-after venues around North Austin. We can’t wait for the grand opening, and wish them much success with the first event and the many that will follow!
