We did it! FRIDAY. Another week has come and gone and we are more than halfway through September. Um seriously, it’s sort of creeping me out how fast time is flying these days. Andy is traveling for work, so it’s just me and E until Sunday but we’ll be making the most of this beautiful weather with some running, (hopefully) a trip to H Street Fest, and a visit to the Satellite Room to say farewell to some good friends that are moving to St. Thomas (yes like the island. yes I am jealous). Hope you guys have a FANTASTIC weekend too! A heads up that next week will be light on posting as I gear up to head to CT for my brother’s wedding (which I am officiating !!!!! more to come on that !) and a short surprise vacation to follow for my husband’s 30th!

Then September is over. Insanity.

But enough about me – I have a gorgeous styled shoot for you today. The vendors wanted to take an outdoor setting, which most go rustic with, and use translucent and sleek details to instead give the apple orchard a modern wedding design. I LOVE when couples & designers mix genres like this. Just gorgeous. PS- Don’t forget that our supercoolawesome giveaway with Makeup Meltdown ends TODAY! Enter here.

The inspiration behind the shoot was sheer, translucent, and modern in a natural setting. The focus was set on the over all beauty of the venue and the purpose was to inspire brides that less is more and sleek modern details can accentuate the natural backdrops of southern venues. We used a clear acrylic table with copper hairpin legs set with translucent china and ghost chairs in an apple orchard. The ceremony site was set as a night time ceremony with ghost chairs and candles to overlook a valley.

Our goal was to inspire brides to think outside the box when it comes to outdoor venues to invoke the idea that outdoors does not always have to be rustic.
