Organic Cotton Plantation Wedding

Feb 18, 2016

For this organic cotton editorial, I wanted to create a blank canvas that would stimulate the imagination of the viewer, allowing each to see themselves as the bride to be, preparing for her wedding day on her family’s plantation. In this moment of solitude, our beautiful bride is able to reflect on the day to come and remember why everyone in joining in celebration of her approaching nuptials. Far too often, the wedding day flies by without a chance to remember the promises we are about to make until we are face to face at the alter. It’s imperative that every bride has time to herself on her wedding day, whether that be in the seconds before she puts on her dress, or as she catches her breath before walking down the aisle — and as a wedding photographer, I try to prioritize this need whenever I see an opportunity arise.

 This engaging vision was brought to life at a private plantation in southern Virginia. The bride wore a simple lace gown by designer Nha Khanh that was complemented with delicate vintage jewelry and a stunning floral arrangement by One Sweet Day in May. Her natural beauty was highlighted with makeup done by Glamour by Gigi. The shoot was tied together with gorgeous handwritten invitations on Silk and Willow paper by the talented Jenna of the Littlest Paperie.
