Why to consider the Harwelden Mansion for your Bridals
For starters, I can’t get over how absolutely stunning Shannon is, and how amazing her bridal session turned out! One of the reasons I love shooting at the Harwelden Mansion, is because each bride can truly make it her own, and we’re able to get these effortlessly timeless photos. And as you can see, Shannon’s bridal session captures exactly that!
Though her wedding was at the Philbrook, she wanted something a little different for her bridal session. Both the Harwelden and Philbrook are equally matched for their history and elegant atmosphere. And not to mention, both are staples in the Tulsa community as some of the finest architectural structures; so it’s no surprise that Shannon chose this location for her bridal shoot! We are huge fans of weddings at Harwelden Mansion. We love the venue and the staff equally.
How Shannon Made the Harwelden Her Own
As you scroll through all these images, you can clearly see subtle transitions of the aesthetic in every room. The contemporary design in the bridal suite is just the right amount of decadence with a modern twist I absolutely love that white and pink room! But as Shannon made her way to the grand staircase, her presence completely changes. Altering her look from a modern bride to a classic one from the early twentieth century! That’s one of the many reasons the Harwelden is such a wonderful spot for bridal portraits or any event.
Of course, the main highlights of this venue, are the grounds themselves! I find it impossible to not get beautiful photos with so much luscious greenery and that manor look. As Shannon twirled on the front steps, she loosened up more and completely owned her presence there! Especially as she posed at the top of the stairs– I still can’t help but think of the scene from the end of Cinderella, as she makes her grand exit with her Prince.
