This glamping styled shoot has received so much love! First it was featured on Ruffled, and next, it will be in the Spring/Summer issue of A Low Country Wedding! For the inspiration, we wanted a shoot that took a camp-style wedding, but turn it editorial, with glam features. Coldwater Gardens was the perfect location. They have some amazing glamping tents that are perfect for a romantic weekend away, or even a girls trip! The tents have Queen size beds, mini-fridge, fans, lots of light, and an outdoor shower. It makes camping so much more fun! As a wedding photographer, I love being able to create fun wedding inspiration.
Emily Burton Designs was the event designer, and told Ruffled, “Our idea for this shoot was a young couple who fell in love over annual Fall family camping trips. They decided to elope where it all began, in tents #3 and #5, and shared a beautiful Fall feast with their families. The food was prepared by the families, like it always had been, and served in a campfire setting. Rustic skillets, wooden cheeseboards, and an old wooden table was enough to present their colorful fall food favorites. Instead of dessert, the couple opted for fresh baked breads, cheeses and fruit with home churned butter.”
This shoot is the perfect inspiration for an end of summer weddings, and it welcomes fall with deep colors and lush greenery. Flower General, who provided the amazing flowers, were able to get us some unique blooms. They used flowers like orchids and anthurium, mixed with tropical leaves, and a ton of texture. The colors were deep rubies, soft yellows, and pops of pink.
Ivory and Beau provided the wedding dress and bridesmaids gown, which fit the theme perfectly. The Sonje gown by Daughters of Simone was such a show stopper! It was a slip gown with velvet flocked flowers and scalloped crisscross straps. It was a little sexy and very boho. And the perfect shoes for a bohemian bride? Beaded barefoot sandals! The Jenny Yoo bridesmaid gown was black with a beautiful floral pattern, that tied in with the floral details.
