As industry experts, our hope is that shoots like these will inspire and encourage brides to make their wedding reflect their own unique, distinctive style. Below is a a recent shoot I planned to show off an intimate modern folk wedding that is a little off of the beaten path.
Shaker Village is a historic gem in the heart of Kentucky’s rolling hills, and the inspiration for this shoot. The simplicity of this 1800s building provided the perfect source for our moody, folksy vibe. Our ceremony nook resides in an intimate attic space, furnished with pampas grass, brass candlestick holders, taper candles, and layered vintage rugs. Both the ceremony nook and the dining area were only lit by window and candle light, adding to the simplicity and romance of the shoot.
Our bride held a textured bouquet which was filled with bright caramel antike roses, white peonies, dried hydrangea, white sweet pea and white ranunculus, wrapped with a golden-yellow dip-dyed ribbon, amongst her soft Ti Adora gown. We chose a simple ribbon-tie for our groom and a brown tweed suit. Textured stoneware, amber champagne flutes, fresh jams, intricate hand-embroidered napkins, and scripted egg escort cards filled the tablescape. This shoot honors skilled craftsmanship, both old and new, putting a modern twist on simplistic folk.
