“The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies.” —Laura Ingalls Wilder

We wanted to cherish the pioneering spirit and uncultivated nature of the American Plains and the fascinating sense of reverence they bring. The expansive grassland of the prairie evokes a feeling of invited loneliness and adventure, a time long since past. The bride waits in anticipation amongst the golden wheat covered landscape and gazes to the horizon.

We chose a palette of warm neutral hues and soft accents of gold and mauve, inspired by the patina of the enchanting walls of The Trinity Institute. Simple shapes and weathered textures are paired with organic lines to emulate the wonder of walking through rustling waves of grain. Heirloom accents adorn her delicate ensemble and windswept hair. She is wonderful, fierce, and a feminine all her own.
