Open your eyes to a watercolor sky. Open your hands to the gentle breeze from the lapping waves. Open your mind to a different kind of beachside ceremony. This styled shoot in Flathead Lake, Montana, embraces the brilliant colors of the fading sun to create a vision that is truly one-of-a-kind – where mountain meets beach.
The bridal style is one of soft hues and bold accessories. A blush gown with draped sleeves catches the wind and sapphire jewelry catches the eye. The bouquet is grand, teeming with colors of blush and lavender with a stroke of green.
A gorgeous arbor fashioned together with branches and floral arrangements adds the ceremonious touch to the natural scene.
The shore becomes a mirrored canvas as the graceful table is placed right in the sandy surf.
Traditional blue china, vintage glassware, and a gorgeous centerpiece ties the details together.
And while most couples include noteworthy quotes in their wedding day celebrations, this styled shoot leaves you with this thought from E.E. Cummings – “viva sweet love.”

Weddings have long been associated with the color white but this styled shoot takes the traditional color and adds a modern interpretation. A whitewashed canvas with a small inclusion of greenery makes this look a clean, simple alternative.
The bride wears a white linen dress with small floral details along the sleeves for a charming, low-key wedding day look.
Set in a white room with a white bench, the only color included in this shoot is the greenery. From the arrangements, to swags, to the bridal accessories, the simple selection is remarkably impactful.
The bride playfully accessorizes with some of the greenery provided. She wears a crown of stems atop her tousled brown hair, then she frames her face with a loose sprig.
To keep with the casual nature, the groom wears a simple white button-down shirt and light blue pants rolled at the ankles.
The ornate windows of the location make for an elegant backdrop. The bride poses next to a wooden ladder with generous greenery arrangements on both sides crawling up the walls.
She opens the windows to reveal the streets below and even pauses to admire the activity.
The groom joins her and embraces the romantic scene, lifting his bride in the air and gazing into her dark eyes.
This styled shoot offers a glimpse into how easy it is to create a beautiful wedding scene with a clean concept in mind. A stark white venue beautified with a few green arrangements creates a unique look that is a present-day nod to tradition.
