For brides with a wild heart, there is no way their weddings are staying indoors. Under the stars, under a canopy of trees, and under the watchful eye of the woods, there is a beautiful wedding to be had. While a huge trend right now is to bring the outside IN, we know that somethings are best in their pure and natural form. In a recent photo shoot with Autumn Silva Photography, we styled a gorgeous mid-summer dream. It included a bride, a few of her friends, and the great outdoors. We couldn't help but think that this would be the perfect building blocks for a wild-at-heart bride who wants to make her wedding one with nature.
- Bride -
For this shoot we styled the bride in head-to-toe lace. While it's easy to think that a lighter-than-air bohemian look would be the perfect fit, we thought that a more traditional lace dress would contrast beautifully with the great outdoors. The delicate lace compliments nature's rough textures perfectly. Our pick was #2157 by Mikaella Bridal
- Bridesmaids -
For the bridesmaids, we chose colors that played off the natural setting. While many brides choose different shades of the same color for their bridesmaids, we find that choosing complimentary colors that fit the entire feel of your wedding provides a more dramatic effect. We mixed Pewter, Eucalyptus, and Mocha, all colors by Wtoo Bridesmaids.
- Beauty -
The hair and makeup for this shoot was done by local vendors Lexi Lee Hair & Kelly Schubel of Lustrous Beauty Studio. To match the styling, they mixed the natural with the dramatic by pairing loose up-dos with dramatic eyes and luminous skin. The perfectly undone and polished style was a breath of fresh air.
- Floral -
The beautiful floral bouquets pictured above are from local vendor Feisty Flowers. They utilized greenery and muted colors to enhance the color of the dresses and harmoniously balance the green of the outdoors. For a wedding like this, we say let your florals run wild. A crown of greenery or an overgrown bouquet won't look like too much when you are surrounded by the wilderness.
- Decor -
Borrow as much from the great outdoors as possible for your Midsummer wedding. Details like re-claimed wood and floral vines contrast perfectly with lux touches, like velvet chairs for your guests during the ceremony. Although it goes without saying, fairy lights are a must have.
