By the sheer nature of their location alone, woodland weddings have a certain magic to them. Whether the over arching theme is something that of botanical elegance or perhaps something a little more folksy and bohemian, the forest setting offers couples the ability to be whatever it is they want to be. A team of Ohio wedding pros got together to put on an indie inspired woodland wedding that was influenced by acoustic love. Whether late fall or early spring, the styled shoot serves as inspiration for that of a minimalist wedding with a slight touch of BoHo flair. Featuring a color palette that complements their quiet surroundings, hues of blush, forest green and pale blue bring just the right touch of color. Details such as the lace table runner covered in foresty greens and skyscraper like candles and the marbled softly hued wedding cake...
A misnomer that needs to be abolished, is that a country wedding can only be done one way. The beauty to today's utterly dreamy bohemian wedding is that it is all about elevating a country affair. Inspired by a romantic bohemian wedding with whimsical influences, a team of Pacific Northwest wedding pros set off to create a wedding of polish and sophistication. Dairyland serves as the perfect backdrop, a locale injecting just the right rustic flavor with the platform for elevated style. Utilizing a wide range of materials and textures, the team created experiences throughout the property with the keystone piece being an incredibly cool triangle backdrop. No bohemian wedding would be complete without a world of dripping greens, something From the Ground Up Floral delivered in spades from the asymetrical swag detailing in the ceremony decor to the gorgeous hand-tied bouquet. This styled shoot is a sweet love song to how a setting is just a setting, you can make it all be exactly what you want it to be.
Inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, a team of local West Virginia wedding pros turned The Carriage House into a wonderfully romantic winter wedding. Working with rich textures like fur and velvet, a complimentary color palette of deep reds and blush pinks were selected to breathe life into their winter wedding. A stunning vintage soft pink tufted couch from The Mustard Couch created the most gorgeous portrait opportunity, perfect for canoodling. Wanting to taking a playful turn, an outdoor reception table was set, lined with rich greens dotted by organic detailing such as picturesque pomegranates. Really giving off the romantic storybook feel is combination of stone locale in the Carriage House plus our bride's stunning long sleeved full skirt Hayley Paige. Maybe its just me, but this is the kind of winter wedding everyone goes nuts about!
There is an undeniable beauty to the light that falls just as the sun is setting, a light lovingly referred to as 'Golden Hour'. A warm honey hue cast all around, the light in just the right place within the sky to create dreamy halos. A time of year when golden hour is especially delicious is the end of summer, a time when fall ever so slightly begins to peek through. Wedding photographer Rachel Fugate wanted to harness that earthly beauty, putting together a romantic styled shoot at the Historic Rock Castle that evoked a dark early autumn forest wedding feel. Riding the line between a indie style meets haunting sophistication, the shoot serves as a love letter of inspiration to those looking to stylistically be their own. Another key element at play that makes the dark forest wedding so successful is the hearty earthy nod found in elements like the two tier wedding cake adorned with blooms and berries, and an utterly to die for hand-tied bouquet by Hannah Jones. Each capitalizes on elements derived from the earth, displayed in such a way that their true beauty and rich falling loving hues become stars all their own. This late summer forest wedding is the stuff winter dreams are made of, the kind that leaves you swoony in the head for the beauty of things to come.
