Friday Feature - Vintage Shoot

We are all about fabulous styled shoots and this vintage themed one is no exception to our adoration. This shoot was inspired by photographer, Cheyenne Kidd’s love for vintage and antiques. 

Cheyenne grabbed some passionate vendors and together they created the beauty that is this vintage shoot. The Greenhouse Picker Sisters spearheaded the styling and put their creative hands to work. The end result was stunning. 

From typewriters to wooden barrels, the rustic elements really complimented the desired feel. The gold plated dishware only added to the vintage vibe and the centerpieces from Pine State Flowers made the table pop with just the right amount of color. And let’s not forget about the beautifully crafted cake that oozed elegant simplicity.

We are always so excited to be involved with styled shoots and we’re flattered that Cheyenne chose Mims as the location for her vintage oasis. 

Kudos to our rockstar vendors:

Friday Feature - Erika's Bridal Portraits

We loved hosting the beautiful Erika for her bridal portraits. She picked some of our favorite spaces inside the house and out on the grounds to capture the beauty of her gown. 

The keyhole in the back of her dress flowed elegantly with pattern of the front door and the color of her roses popped beautifully against her gown. 

Along with Kate from MKM Photography, Erika was able to float through the house and choose the perfect locations for her bridal portrait session.

Friday Feature - Cassie & Ranganathan

We always love when we can be a part of couple’s big day, but we especially love it when they happen to be friends of Mims. Such is the case of this week’s #FridayFeature. We were so excited to host our good friend, Ranganathan Rajaram (aka DJ Rang), and his lovely bride, Cassie, on their wedding day.

Joined by an intimate group of family and friends, Rangathan and Cassie celebrated in a simple and elegant way. They choose to have the ceremony in the middle of our ballroom underneath a gorgeous chandelier and floral arrangement. The natural sunlight poured through the house, adding to the dazzling glow that highlighted the couple’s excitement. 

After their ceremony, the couple was joined by their family members to take photos. The beautiful colors in their guests' attire complimented the bride and groom's decor and atmosphere. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this day?!

Cassie and Rangathan serve as a perfect example of just how beautiful weekday wedding ceremonies can be! Thanks for choosing to spend your day at Mims! 

And a big shout out goes to Tesh Parekh at IWP Photography for capturing the big day!

Friday Feature - Megan's Bridal Portraits

We love when brides come into Mims and make the space completely their own! That’s what our bride Megan did during her bridal portraits shoot. 

She excitedly took charge and used each room in the house to capture her gorgeous gown, hot pink shoes, and infectious personality! 

From standing regally on the staircase to lounging on a settee, Megan took advantage of the natural lighting and whimsical atmosphere of Mims. 

This bride also knows how to have a good time and wasn’t afraid to make some goofy faces to add to her collection. 

Megan is always full of laughter and we enjoyed hosting her and her fantastic photographer, Amaris Photography!
