There’s a theme of natural beauty in this Southern styled wedding shoot. The pastoral location mixed with delicate pastels and modern style offers a different interpretation of the typical Southern look.
Set against the backdrop of a bright and sunny day with billowy clouds floating by, the bride and groom find their place on a rustic Texas property.
The groom is contemporarily styled with an off-white button down shirt and a navy tuxedo jacket and matching pants. His boutonniere features golden crespedia and baby eucalyptus.
The bride wears a thin-strapped V-neck dress featuring a wrapped-style bodice and an A-line skirt. Her hair is styled in a casual updo with a pretty pink flower accessory.
Her bouquet is a colorful assortment of flower choices from pink roses, golden crespedia, and baby eucalyptus.
Her makeup is light and natural, perfect for the gentle sunshine and outdoor location.
Walking hand-in-hand beneath the trees, the bride and groom are enveloped in nature. As they walk about, the sunlight seeps through the branches with radiance.
The style of her skirt is perfect for spinning, twirling, and catching the moderate breeze.
A tablescape is set beneath the vibrant orange trees. Two white appetizer plates are ready for the elegant assortment of meats, cheese, berries, and nuts. The bride’s bouquet is placed on the table for a lovely touch of color.
To cap off the shoot, a two-tier cake features both ruffled and smooth finishes in white buttercream. A cascade of baby eucalyptus and pink roses provide an unfailing floral note to the shoot.
The Southern style of this shoot isn't made possibly simply by the location, the fashion choices, or the colors. It’s by the gentle representation of the slower pace, the warmth, and the charm of the South we’ve come to know.
