It isn’t everyday I get to meet a soon-to-be-married couple that doesn’t mind defying wedding day traditions and norms. While most engaged couples opt for a traditional church ceremony and hall or ballroom reception, some are determined to mix things up by highlighting natural beauty and their love for the wilderness in the setting of their big day. After all, who says you need four walls and a dance floor to have the fairy tale wedding of your dreams?
Inspired by a not so conventional bride and set up in an open field surrounded by tall trees, this outdoor wedding photoshoot showcases a naturalistic atmosphere and a laid-back, laissez faire appeal. Offering a mix of rich colors, fresh foliage and rustic undertones, the woodsy landscape used during the photography shoot makes the perfect venue for a free-spirited gypsy, a peace-loving hippie or Bohemian beauty to tie the knot with her Prince Charming. The outside setting is also easily replicated, which means you can have this type of field wedding anywhere and everywhere (with proper permission, of course).
And though the countryside backdrop steals the show in this outdoor wedding photo session, I really wanted to also bring attention to the vendors that made all of this possible. From the sprawling floral sprays, the blooming bouquets and the lacy flapper-style dress to the retro-inspired props, the wooden barnyard accents and the golden leaf invites – Every little detail was carefully considered when designing this whimsically unique wedding-scape.
We had tons of fun setting up and shooting this wedding photography set, so I hope it has provided you with some inspiration for the theme of your own celebration. Like what you see and imagine saying “I Do” in an outdoor setting such has this one? Take a moment to check out the vendors that have worked so diligently to make sure this wedding photo session went off without a hitch. Myself and all of these hand-picked vendors are dedicated to delivering the wedding of your wildest dreams no matter the location. Let’s turn that vintage vision into a modern day reality!
