There are lots of things that make our hearts skip a beat: pastoral outdoor settings, gorgeous gauzy gowns, earthy and elegant flowers, to name a few. Well, this rustic but glamorous inspiration shoot from Katie Stoops Photography has all three and then some! Shindig Weddings & Events set up the stylish scene on the grounds of Belle Haven on the James in Scottsville, Virginia. The gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown—a flattering corset style—is such a pretty formal contrast to the lush, casual wildflower blooms by Pat’s Floral Designs. And that ruffled cake dripping with blackberries and cherries? Shut the barn door—Paradox Pastry outdid themselves! Go ahead and steal some ideas from this stunning scene!
