As we near the end of fall, this gorgeous, woodsy styled shoot by L. brook events feels absolutely perfect. Obviously, we’re obsessed with the show-stealing fall bouquet by Pollen Floral Design—that pop of a yellow rose amongst the gathered aubergine foliage is unexpectedly beautiful and combined with the dramatic blue ribbons the effect is so romantic. And that textured Sarah Janks dress is perfection. Thankfully, Ashleigh Coleman captured all the gorgeous details with her dreamy film photography style.
From the team: The rich visual dichotomy of deep, moody woods meeting a rock strewn shoreline, coupled with a man’s love for his bride, inspired us to evoke those emotions—ardor, wonder, depth. The varied hues of the coastline with hints of rich and lush seasonal berries also spoke to our design. Thus, an ancient ocean cottage, situated on island point where the Damariscotta River empties out along Maine’s rocky coastline, with its emerald collar of ancient balsams and giant ferns, provided a perfect backdrop for Claire and Maxwell’s love to flourish.
