Styled Bridal Shoot in Maryland
These days, it’s all about venues with character and this styled bridal shoot at the William Paca House and Garden in Annapolis, Maryland, is one that celebrates Colonial America with a timely take on wedding visions. Much of the appeal of this shoot rests in the bold bridal accessories and florals, which create an unmatched wedding scene. It’s fitting for a garden wedding that the invitation suite presents beautiful blooms. The bright flowers splashed on the parchment are a lovely precursor to a garden affair.
A simple silhouette for a bridal gown is perfect for this type of event. A fussy or overstated style would take away from the bride. This strapless design allows her to truly shine. And a sparkling pair of heels certainly helps, too!
The garden is truly an oasis, an inviting scene outside of the William Paca House.
All the focus is on the bridal accessories. A bold bouquet full of dark pink, light pink, and white flowers, along with ample greenery, is held together with lovely satin ribbons.
A garter is made from sheer fabric and a beaded embellishment for a romantic touch.
And to dress up her strapless gown, she wears a beaded accessory across her shoulders for a regal twist on the usual jacket or shawl.
The amount of texture provided by the roses, hypericum berries, amaranthus, white hydrangea, and ivy in this bouquet makes a lasting impression.
The bride cuts a graceful figure as she descends the steps of the historic house.
Outside, her white gown, sparkling accessories, and colorful bouquet truly stand out with brilliance.
The unique trellis offers a characteristic frame to the bride’s appearance as she stands under the gentle sunlight.
Her vintage ring is another importance accessory that ties in well to the overall ambiance of the day.
With her long blonde hair flowing freely past her shoulders, the bride looks relaxed and confident amid the characteristic structures of the Colonial Era garden.
The garden offers ample places to pause and admire the beautiful greenery and plant-life. The geometric design of the pathways is ideal for serving as an aisle, too!
It’s the details that make this styled shoot a standout.
If you want to envelope yourself with the beauty of the 1700s, the William Paca House and Garden is a great spot for inspiration. Create your own history at this enriched venue in Annapolis.
