Much as we spend winter anticipating the new life of spring, a bride spends her morning anticipating the coming union with her groom. Years of dreaming, months of planning, the moment is finally almost here. Giving of yourself to someone for the rest of your life. That eager anticipation yet calm assurance was our inspiration for this shoot, photographed in the gorgeous Goodstone Inn. Rather than designing details and props, we focused on the bride. Simple. Sensual. Natural. The greens in the room and the ivy outside inspired a neutral color palette. Soft, natural lighting added a sense of elegance and grace. We chose bridal lingerie and wedding accessories that didn’t distract from but enhanced the bride’s natural beauty and blended in to her surroundings.
