Natural + Elegant Wedding Inspiration

This inspiration shoot is so achingly gorgeous, so ethereal, there may be no words to do it justice. Entitled Gossypium–the Latin name for the cotton plant family–this stripped-down, elegant session was created for The Little Workshop, held in Southern Virginia and orchestrated by the incredible Michael and Carina Photography. Taking cues from nature and the cotton field at their venue, The Lewis Dream HomeGossamer first styled and outfitted an intimate bridal boudoir session and then progressed to sunset portraits in the fields of cotton and a rustic but sophisticated tabletop with florals from White Magnolia Designs and hand-lettered place cards by Written Word Calligraphy. The stunning ivory and greenery bouquet was beribboned by Silk & Willow, and Stephanie Knight‘s gorgeous hair and makeup was done by Lora Kelley. We could not be more in love, and are honored to share the absolutely perfect images from Michael and Carina Photography!
