Paris In The Country: A Styled Wedding Inspiration.

Afternoon my loves. I have a humdinger of a post to share today… this styled bridal shoot is crammed with so much beauty I. heart. every. single. detail. The colours are heavenly, the dress is dreamy, the venue is gorgeous and the flowers are exquisite… I also adore the charming little story of our blushing bride that accompanies the shoot… read on.

The story…Paris in the country...

While studying abroad in the city of love, our bride was swept off her feet by a Parisian whose charming disposition won her over in a few hours of conversation.

With each passing day they became more fond of each other’s company, and he taught her to live as a true lady of Paris.

As her program neared to a close, the pressure of their time together forced them to consider the future of their relationship.

In the evening of her last night there, illuminated by moonlight and framed by the Eiffel Tower, he proposed his hand in marriage, to which she gladly accepted.

A humble girl from rural Virginia, her only wish was that they could hold the wedding in her hometown.

With a newfound appreciation of the culture that had brought them together and the family she was about to become a part of, she choose to integrate Parisian influences and design throughout the wedding celebration.

An amber and blush color pallate resonates throughout her florals, accessories, and menu choices. Katie Stoops Photography captured and inspired the day’s theme. The Goodstone Inn in Middleburg was the perfect venue for its rural county landscape. Bouquet and floral arrangements fitted with handpainted fiddlehead ferns were deisnged by Holly Heider Chapple and were captivating. Those perfectly pink, Macaroons were made by OCakes, and I think we all can agree YUMM!

    Oh my! This is literally the prettiest shoot.

    Although I think I’d quite like to prance around in a pretty dress and that house *every* day off my life, not just my wedding day!
