Rustic Charm Meets Modern Bride
I love when worlds collide, especially in bridal styles. This shoot at the Vintage Heart Farm captured by May Carlson beautifully encapsulates how a rustic-romantic ceremony can also be modern. Muted florals, farm animals, a rusted old truck and a gorgeous gown? Yes, please! There's something about fruit and foliage that truly adds to a vintage setting... and a quill pen of course! These elements are incredibly chic and match the effortlessness of our bride's beauty by Glam on Demand. The elegant stationary by Isidore Augustine completes this old world feeling while the gorgeous ring by Nicole Mera adds a structured (and dazzling) component to an overall organic theme. When I think of old world romance, a horse is essential! Whether prince charming is riding in, or in this case nuzzling up to our maiden, there's something about the idea of galloping in a meadow, wearing something much too fancy, that transports me back to a time where candles were used for light and love letters were sealed with wax stamps. I guess you could say I'm a romantic! Sometimes simple is perfection when it comes to flowers and décor. I love how The Vintage Bouquet kept the colors muted and earthy; it perfectly coordinates with the minimal style of the tablescape and the 3-tier cake by Charity Teague Confections. In fact, The Vintage Bouquet did an excellent job planning and designing this entire shoot! This gorgeous bride wears the stunning Merlot gown for this romantic affair. Charming and simple, this gown is made of ivory crepe and has delicate, tulle flutter sleeves finished with a scallop trim. The ivory and silver floral applique along the neckline and waist add just a touch of shimmer and are the perfect details for a minimalist gown. Whether you're a dirty boots, messy hair kind of gal, or a letter-writing, sipping tea kind of lady, you can't go wrong with a gorgeous gown and simple accent details for your wedding. Oh also, a sweeping train (and a kitten) are always a good idea!
