“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--what more could she ask? A few flowers at her feet and above her the stars.” –Victor Hugo
The most enchanted moments of the day begin with the sunrise and we wanted to capture the alluring moments of the morning as the bride readies herself for a most remarkable day. We wanted to capture the intimacy of cherishing the awakening of one of life’s greatest covenants. In reverie of suspended thought, she wanders the estate grounds with quiet anticipation.
Inspired by the delicate hues of French gardens, we developed a palette of dusty blue and pastel tones with hints of gold. The captivating display of stone, marble, and the lush allèe of trees around the estate provided a stunning backdrop both indoors and out and we were influenced by its inherent beauty.
The bride was adorned with delicate texture and embroidered blue details that added a playful touch. This look was charming and romantic with soft upswept hair, a golden crown, and an airy boudoir ensemble. She held a bouquet of flowing pink and blue florals with foraged greenery that added a hint of softness.
