If You Go Down To The Woods Today

This shoot exudes cool…from the bride and groom fashion, to the gorgeous wicker furniture.

Seriously. Cool. Yep. This shoot exudes cool in so many ways…from the bride and groom fashion, to the gorgeous use of bang-on-trend wicker furniture. Oh, and not to mention the beautiful blue-eyed canine companion.

Today’s feature shoot comes in the form of a quaint glamping tale, set in beautiful Cherry Hill Park in Maryland.

“An amazing group of vendors and I came together to create this moody Glamping Boho styled shoot! Our shoot took place in an eco friendly environment in a secluded Glamping location in Maryland. Our trendy bohemian couple was paired with a sweet blue-eyed husky as they shared pizza with each other around our nature inspired tablescape” Jessica, Event Planner

Honestly, we can’t really think of a better way to spend your wedding day than out in nature, round a campfire eating pizza!

Enjoy!

Boho Vibes at Silver Lake Sand Dunes

All the boho feels, a beautiful nude palette, a gorgeous denim jacket…and disco ball for good measure…

Now if you know us, you’ll know that we are suckers for nude vibes, so when these images from Wednesday Photography landed in our inbox, we squealed only a little too loudly. All the boho feels, a beautiful nude palette, a gorgeous denim jacket…and disco ball for good measure…

The celestial nods in this picture perfect shoot are so delicate and inspired – we’re seeing a lot of demand for crystal and lunar decor; it fits so perfectly with bohemian inspired weddings. We love the black macrame the team have utilised here for the ceremony altar, along with the moon decals interwoven into it. So pretty.

Bridal fashion is relaxed and organic, with a beautiful free-flowing gypsy dress, a denim jacket and an on-trend fedora. The groom wore a relaxed fitted shirt and cropped trouser combo, with a darker denim jacket to complement the rest of his attire. I don’t think this couple could get anyyyyy cooler, do you?

Just absolute wild, bohemian perfection! Well done to all involved – credits below!

Real Wedding: Meghan & Eric

We love a mix of classic chicness and rustic country, which is why we love Meghan and Eric’s big day.

Sometimes it’s nice to mix a little bit of classic chicness to a rustic, country wedding. Which is why we love Meghan and Eric’s big day, shot by the ever so talented, Nick Nguyen. Letting their venue, the Brodie Homestead, speak for itself this lovely couple kept things tasteful, laidback and full of emotion for their guests.

Meghan’s BHLDN dress set the tone for her wedding day…light, uncomplicated and completely effortless…much akin to the styling for the remainder of the event. The bridesmaids wore navy to complement the groomsmen, and the flowers were a mixture of lush greenery, white peonies and roses, and white scabiosa heads. Nikk, the photographer, explains more…

“Shooting Meghan and Eric’s wedding at Brodie Homestead was such a great experience for me. The Austin, Texas venue they chose was absolutely adorable! As a renovated barn turned wedding venue it had the perfect combination of rustic and elegance. But the venue wasn’t the best part by a long shot.

Getting the opportunity to work with Meghan and Eric and be a part of capturing their special day was by far my highlight! It’s wonderful people like these two that make it easy to forget you’re actually working. After witnessing their fun and playful interactions with each other you can’t help but feel relaxed and at ease. It was evident how perfect these two were for each other by how they were able to fully be themselves and how being themselves only encouraged the other to do the same.

This truly was an unforgettable experience for me and even though it was super hot, the temperature didn’t slow anyone down for a minute! If you take a look through my blog you’ll see that Meghan and Eric’s special day was a breath-taking day filled with a lot of tears and laughter.” Nikk Nguyen

Anniversary Shoot: Jacklyn & Nick

Jacklyn answered a callout for a styled shoot, desperately wanting to wear her dress again!

The beautiful Jacklyn & Nick were married a year ago on the day of this shoot, September 2018. Answering a callout for models for a styled shoot, Jacklyn threw their names in the ring as she desperately wanted to wear her gown again!

Photographer, Ross Kyker, shot the pair at the Sekrit Theatre in Houston. We love the glasshouse images of the pair dancing…beautifully composed and perfectly romantic…what a way to spend your first anniversary!

Aegean Rue de Seine at Laguna Gloria

We’re loving these beautiful couple portraits and the focus on the stunning Rue de Seine dress.

What do you get when you cross the boho Rue De Seine dress of your dreams, with a swish grooms suit from Bonobos? Well, this inspiration shoot, that’s what! Submitted by the wonderful Nikk Nguyen, and shot at Laguna Gloria, we’re loving the beautiful couple portraits and the focus on the gorgeous, intricate details of the stunning Rue de Seine dress.

“Pulling this shoot off was a dream for me as a wedding photographer. Laguna Gloria is one of the most beautiful venues in Austin, Texas and I’ve been looking forward to this boho inspiration shoot for a long time now. To say that I’m happy to see the finished product couldn’t be more of an understatement; I’m ecstatic! This shoot had all the feels, soft, romantic and edgy all in one and to be able to capture it during sunset was a dream come true!” Nikk

Nikk explains that the inspiration for this shoot was ‘a piece of cake’ thanks to the Aegean-inspired gown from Rue De Seine. From the fringe details to the intricate lace patterns, the team were passionate about capturing the dress somewhere as natural, free-flowing and bold as the dress itself and what better place than Laguna Gloria!

“Our stylist and coordinator, Lynsie from Pearl Events, was an absolute master at pulling everything together. I was an awe watching how she took a captivating idea and turned it into a beautiful reality. Everything from the florals, to the tablescape, to the venue itself was an integral part that made this shoot work!” Nikk

Warm & Cosy at Slot Doddendael

Full of gorgeous colours, an open fire and beautiful candles, this styled inspiration is warming our cockles!

OK…so the weather here in the UK has taken a real turn for the colder…what is this!! So when this warming, cosy shoot from the Netherlands landed in our inbox, we had to snap it up to help warm our cockles back up!

Full of gorgeous, autumnal colours, an open fire and beautiful candles, this styled inspiration is all that we need right now. The bridal styling is super chic, clean and elegant, and the groom-style is super dapper and bang on trend. From the food to the florals, the furniture to the amazing dessert table, we are salivating beneath our blankets!

“Normally the best time of the year to get marry is late spring and summer. But there is so much prettiness in autumn/winter weddings. Rich colours and the warmth of the fireplace are key ingredients in this styled inspiration. Autumn/winter weddings feel so much more magical, don’t you think?” Nailia, Best Day Ever Events

Sweet Love at Maple Bay Manor

Love is in the air…yes, it’s Valentines Day, but this shoot has not a cliche in sight!

Love is officially in the air…yes, it’s Valentines Day. And whether you’re celebrating Valentines, Galentines or Palentines this year, we have a straight up, ‘classy with a twist’ love-fest to share with you today. Think bold reds and rich, sickly sweet desserts. Think hearts and roses but not as you know them…

Submitted by awesome planner Kim of Borrowed & Blue Events, this wonderfully emotive shoot held at Maple Bay Manor in Canada is giving us all the feels of the loving season.

“We wanted to create a Valentine’s based shoot that was different; something romantic but boasted elegance. We decided to go for a deeper red mood board with soft touches which I think helped create something unique. The dress used is a locally custom made dress along side the jewellery which is also locally and custom made by Emma Glover Designs” Kim

I think thats the tough thing about Valentines…i.e. not creating something which is totally and utterly cliche, or has been done before. This team brought a vision to the table, and executed every inch of the shoot with respect and finesse, which means the overall tone looks and feels very mature, elegant and refined, rather than garish, in-your-face Valentines day.

From the textual bouquet, featuring anthurium and amaranthus, to the cake and desserts which included gentle nods to the shoot theme, the finer details of this beautiful shoot really help to create a story and a build up to seeing the models appear.

“The biggest challenge for this shoot was gathering our vendors so close after Christmas had ended. We actually changed the date to push it later in the month of January to accommodate how busy everyone has been. “ Kim

The bridal look focuses on elegance and pure, simple beauty; natural makeup with pops of browns to complement the brides lovely complexion, and a relaxed yet structured hair style dotted with pretty little red roses to finish.

The groom, looking smart in his dark grey suit and pale grey tie, added a pop of colour with his boutonniere; while simple, included nods to the stunning bridal bouquet, with hits of red and green.

1F2A4311-2

The real standout of the shoot was the striking foliage filled heart arch…masterfully built with long, trailing ends, under which the couple exchanged rings and spoke their vows. Set against a stunning view for a backdrop, the couple in their beautiful attire were romantically framed by the unique heart arch concept…a total winner in our minds.

“The arch absolutely surpassed all expectations I had. Taylor, the photographer had approached me about doing a Valentines based shoot and had sent me over an image of this heart shaped arch. I showed it to my husband who decided he could make it out of rebar and Calvin at Pacific Coast Metal Craft could weld it together for us. When he brought it home I was blown away, but once we set it on the dock at Maple Bay Manor and Annise from Bespoke Blossoms added the greenery it was easily the strongest and most original part of our shoot” Kim

Hats off to an incredible team, who managed to create such a perfect and tasteful ode to Valentines Day.

Festive Elopement Vibes at Big Bear

Warm your hearts with this Big Bear styled elopement

Merry Christmas Eve! Can you believe it’s Christmas Day tomorrow?! It’s come around so fast. We’re definitely feeling the Christmas spirit here at Wed in The Wild and are really enjoying the abundance of reds, greens and snowy vibes filling our Instagram feeds…

We’re massive fans of texture when it comes to weddings…from styling to multi-textured ensembles for the bridal party. So when Alyssa from AMA Designs got in touch with this styled shoot, we leapt at the chance to publish it.

From the super textural florals and the various macrame dreamcatchers hanging from tree branches, to the bridal ensemble with layers of lace, silk chiffon and fur, this shoot is a beautiful homage to the festive period set in the mountain forests of Big Bear, California.

The flowing red skirt of the bridal gown is light and airy, and we love the vibrancy of the colour juxtaposed against the natural tones for the forest. It really sets the tone for the shoot, with the florals and the macrame working in perfect unison with the garment.

With her hair up in an elegant bun decorated with festive foliage and florals, the bridal model’s face was kept fresh and natural, with a gorgeous pop of colour on the lip.

Camylla+JordanShoot-34

Camylla+JordanShoot-47

We’re completely digging the macrame hangings; huge fans anyway, we love the colours that have been utilised, as we’re so used to seeing the fabric in it’s natural tones. Used as a frame to stage shots, it’s great to see macrame being utilised as a prop beyond a table runner or a ceremony backdrop.

Camylla+JordanShoot-59

Sometimes a simple shoot speaks volumes. Sometimes a few props are all you need to really leave an impression. We love how this team in particular have made full use of nature and the surrounding area to really sell the fantasy of a Christmas-themed elopement. Everything just works so beautifully, from the minimal, elegant stationery, to the beautiful fur stole worn by the bride.

To us, it’s Christmas vibes, nailed.

Real Wedding: Rebecca & Michael

Don’t let this summer wedding fool you, it’s full of festive vibes…

It might be a summer wedding we’re showcasing today but there are so many beautiful festive vibes at work here…from the beautiful berry purple of the bridesmaid dresses to the stunning festoon lighting at the venue.

We love Rebecca Carpenter‘s work, so when she got in touch with Rebecca and Michael’s big day, we literally bit her hand off. Rebecca’s work is so honest and natural; her effervescent personality is intrinsic to how she gets the best out of her couples and we can see just how much of a good time they have working with her. And Rebecca and Michael were no exception….

“They were so warm and friendly from the moment they booked; we kept in touch via e-mail and whatsapp! When I showed up on their day it felt like I was meeting an old friend when I met Rebecca. Her family and bridesmaids were so welcoming, fun and positive to be around.” Rebecca

Rebecca&Michael-74

Rebecca&Michael-55

As you will see from this real wedding, Rebecca is great at capturing both the big picture and the smaller details; from the couples chosen fragrances and stationery, to little details on the wedding breakfast tables. It’s the little things couples often forget, and so this is a really important part of wedding photography.

You may also recognise the Royal Mail ‘something for you’ notecard which went a little Instagram viral when Rebecca posted it onto her grid. Like we said…it’s the little details that make a wedding day truly complete.

Rebecca&Michael-81

Rebecca&Michael-113

Rebecca&Michael-169

When thinking back to this beautiful real wedding, Rebecca remembers if being one that really stuck out for her in 2018…

“I know this sounds like a cliche but the whole day was just a photographers dream. I loved it all. The weather was incredible, the bride and groom were madly in love, their little girl Bluebell was present, they had the most stunning flowers, there were the beautiful and hilarious bridesmaids, and of course, there was the loveliest church ceremony.” Rebecca

Rebecca&Michael-291

Rebecca&Michael-472

Rebecca&Michael-515

Rebecca&Michael-527

This couple really did cover all bases with their wedding planning…every aspect of their day was detailed and tailored to their life and their loves…from food and drink, to decor and even the games that they played during the wedding breakfast…

“Rebecca and Michael thought of everything – The Mr and Mrs Game led by the Bride’s brother was created so that all the guests were involved and were able to interact. There were details the bride and groom really thought hard about, such as the strawberries and cream stand, pimp your processco stand, a harpist and a fabulous cheese tower.” Rebecca

We love the table plan…a whimsical fairytale/literary plethora of the couples favourite stories, and each table was themed around the table plan. We also love all the little details around the barn venue, from the festoon lighting, the little paper lanterns and the photo wall showcasing the couples time together.

Rebecca&Michael-557

Rebecca&Michael-665

Rebecca&Michael-622

Rebecca&Michael-643

When it came to photography, Rebecca had a blast with the couple and their guests.

“I had so many ideas for photographs that day and sometimes you do get resistance from people. However, Rebecca and Michael, her bridesmaids and the wedding guests in general were down for anything and everything! From setting off confetti canons during bridal prep, to jumping fences and going into a field for celebratory photos are some of my favourite moments of that day.” Rebecca

Rebecca&Michael-719

Rebecca&Michael-782

Rebecca&Michael-922

Rebecca&Michael-1023

When it came to challenges on the day, Rebecca explained that the curse of the sharp sunlight struck…every photographers nightmare…

“I think the biggest challenge that day was that the sun was scorching which never really makes for the best photos. Eyes squinting and harsh shadows never make for the prettiest of photos, so I decided to hold off doing the couple portraits until later in the day when the light had settled. It was a bit of a gamble when a wedding is busy and flowing, but I explained to the couple that for the best results we wait until then and I’m so glad they trusted me!” Rebecca

And so are we, because the couple shots and celebratory bridesmaid/bridal portraits are just to die for! Well done Rebecca, and huge congrats to the beautiful Rebecca and Michael.

A Mind-Blowing, Cheeky Medora Shoot

A cheeky end to this visually stunning shoot set in the wilds of Medora.

When we saw this shoot kicking about on the incredible Blaine Finneseth’s Instagram, we knew we had to get it in the bag. Not only is it set in the most incredible landscape, but the hats and flowers had us at the proverbial ‘hello’.

Blaine is a North Dakota-based photographer, with a passion for capturing perfect moments. Specialising in weddings and graduating seniors, Blaine’s love getting to know people and utilising that familiarity to get the best out of client sessions.

Combining a killer team for this stunning shoot, Blaine captured not only raw emotion but lots and lots of fun with this dramatic conceptual project. And watch out for the cheeky shot at the end…

We love that so many rules were broken with this shoot…because why should we to play by the rules when it comes to weddings? From the groom attire, the hats, the jewellery and the smoke bombs, every detail is deeply personal and visually showcases how far you can push your wedding day concept to align with your preferences as a couple.

We heart an unconventional wedding.

By far, out favourite aspect of Blaine’s concept is the colour palette; whilst we usually see red tones paired with plums, silvers and greens, we love that the team utilised oranges and yellows to pair with the rusty red of the grooms blazer and the silks of the bouquet. Such a perfect pairing with the surrounding landscape.
