Autumn Rustic Opulence - A Bridal Editorial

Our creative team is over-the-moon to be featured on Every Last Detail.  It's so fun collaborating with talented artists, creating all the pretty.

Autumn evokes warm palettes in harvest settings.  Our creative team is inspired by this in a place where rustic marries glamour.  This juxtaposition of earthen wood and set against ornaments of rose gold.    

The Delamater House estate is ideal for elegance in an outdoor setting.  Sleek chocolate brown barn doors slide to let in the autumn breeze.  A multi-tiered iron chandelier is the focal point in the barn reception area.  Soft white fabric drapes down framing the center of the space. Deep colored blossoms dance on invitation suites by Elli.  They continue through the rich crimson bouquets by HED Events.  This ushers in all the romance.

A bride with her maid of honor share sweet moments throughout a wedding day.  This dear friend floats down the aisle in Bella Bridesmaid’s decadent floor length Adrianna Papell gown. Everly Grace Bridal Boutique dresses our bride in Kennedy by Watters.  A gown glowing in the sunlight as layers of delicate ruffles dance in the wind.  The bride takes a private moment to read a “just before we wed” letter from her groom.  The fine art calligraphy is penned by Larksong Press.

HED Events accents the outdoor chapel space with a rose gold backdrop, adding that touch of sparkle to a romantic natural space. The reception tablescape boasts rich colors, textiles, and gilded elements.  HED puts the opulence in glamour with dripping candlesticks, layered lace and silks. Kristen of Bliss Pastry completely captures rustic glamour with her textured layers of decadent sweetness, while plum and rosy blossoms grace each tier.

When nature and glamour collide, we’re pretty sure we want to be around  for all the loveliness that ensues.

LPGA Wedding Daytona Beach

He began loving her before he could even drive a car. In classes together at a Christian Academy in Ormond Beach.  He knew that she was the one. 

She is full of organizing, and making things happen. He is full of laid back smiles and charm. 
She is full of grace and beauty. He holds her and she laughs with abandon. 

They are young love. 

During the engagement portraits months ago, we strolled the streets of downtown New Smyrna Beach. Both of them telling me their dreams. She laughs saying she's the planner. He smiles and nods in agreement. Both have an easy way with each other. 

On the wedding day, they read letters to their parents. Tears and laughter bubble over in the room. She says she's more like her father. There is laughter in this truth. He speaks kind words to his brother and sister whom he is leaving. There are tears. 

There is love everywhere. Family, friends, and all those in the presence of this day. Love in boundless measure. 

Being a part of such a meaningful and lovely day is everything that I love about being a wedding photographer. 

Wishing Nathaniel and Elizabeth a very Happily Ever After on their journey ahead.

Autumn Rustic Opulence - A Sneak Peek

Back in April I met with a talented decorating team at a local bridal show.  HED Events stood out to me among the masses and I couldn't wait to collaborate with them.

After meeting in my home studio and then many upon many messenger chats later, this shoot came to life.  

I can't wait to show you the feature in it's full glory - so, stay tuned!

xoxo lovelies
