(SAN ANTONIO) – Hines, the international real estate firm, is pleased to announce Flower Vault, an interactive photography installation, will take temporary residence at the RIM, San Antonio’s 1,812,492-square-foot power center. On cue for the holiday season, Flower Vault opened Monday, November 26th and is located at 17610 La Cantera Parkway.
Known as an Instagrammer’s playground, Flower Vault is a creative photography studio that offers patrons a unique opportunity to take photos inside beautifully curated, flower-themed rooms designed as interactive backdrops for family portraits, social media posts, holiday cards, and product showcases. The Christmas-inspired installation at the RIM will have five rooms to help guests snap that holiday picture that everyone wants.
“We are very excited to have such a unique venue at the RIM for the Holiday season. We encourage everyone to come and interact with and experience the Flower Vault. It’s a great opportunity to create memorable images suitable for social media or a really nice picture frame,” said the RIM General Property Manager Chris Oviatt.
Founded by San Antonio-based husband and wife team Robbie and Sarah Forrest, Flower Vault began as a pop-up photo shop on the city’s North Side. Increasing popularity demanded a second location, now open in Houston.
Co-founder, Robbie Forrest added, “We’ve been blown away by how creative and inspiring our guests can be: they take amazing pictures and have a blast doing it!”
In addition to serving as a coveted space for social media users, Flower Vault has also played host to bridal portraits, children’s birthday parties, corporate events and marriage proposals. The installation will be open every day through December 31. Tickets are available for $20 per person for an hour in the space. Since the whole family is invited, kids 10 and under are free with their parent, and pets are $10. To purchase tickets, visit https://flowervault.com/. Visitors are encouraged to tag @FlowerVault and @theRIMSA in shared photos. Be sure to follow both on Instagram for updates and giveaways.
