We have always felt the weddings that are the most beautiful are the ones that are a true reflection of the couple. There are no rules that should be followed, and the selection of every detail should be a labor of love. This haunting shoot is a reflection of the wonderful results that can come from being true to yourself.
From floral designer Nicole Land of Soil and Stem:
This is a recent editorial from my time in New Zealand for my Collected workshop series.

It's customary for Chinese couples to have their wedding photos taken in advance of the wedding, leaving them plenty of time on their wedding days to enjoy the company of their guests and really revel in their celebrations. Today's couple, Janes and Osson, decided to fall suit with this tradition, taking their elegant pre-wedding photos in California (their wedding recently took place in Hong Kong!).
