Hear a little bit more about this gracefully gorgeous shoot, from the creative folks behind it…

From The Photographer, James Saleska

This styled shoot was part of my desire to create clean and natural photos of a simply styled bride.

It was an awesome experience to work with a fully professional team and shoot this gorgeous dress and bouquet. The apple orchard helped enhance the natural beauty of the bouquet and simplicity of the dress.

From The Florist, Parsonage Flowers

We chose very soft, muted tones that included white peonies, little silver spray roses, sahara roses, blue thistle, scabiosa pods, and eucalyptus.

We wanted the bouquet to be mostly made from fresh, draping greens to give it a very organic look.

Isn’t it enchanting? Classic, yet rustic, is what so many brides look for in their wedding day style – and I love the idea of couples holding lanterns in their pictures!
