Scandinavian Styled Shoot

Scandinavian Styled Shoot - St. Vrain, Colorado.

With a desire to emphasize the beauty of a simple wedding, this styled shoot at St. Vrain in Longmont, Colo., is industrial, yet cozy. Scandinavian touches and handmade details create a personal, one-of-a-kind experience. And a much-in-love couple brings out the best in the space with their timeless and authentic spirits.

Using St. Vrain’s whitewashed backdrops as inspiration, the invitation suite features unique details like modern calligraphy, translucent stationary, and a white wax seal. It’s the perfect combination of contemporary and classic.
