Imagine waking up on your wedding day in a French chateau and foraging the grounds for your own wedding flowers. You invite your closest friends and family to join you for an intimate dinner after a sweet and simple ceremony. Wearing a vintage gown and veil, you cherish every moment of your wedding day at your childhood home. This is the story that Ginny Au and her attendees dreamt up during the first two days of her workshop in Dordogne, France, and working together, they made this dream come to life.

From Ginny Au:

These beautiful images from Erich McVey are the second stage of the European workshop. During the creative process, the attendees and myself talked about the environment we are in, looked over the gowns sent form Gossamer Vintage, and devised a story for our photo shoot. The concepts were simple, organic and drawn completely from how the space inspired us. It was my hope to encourage the attendees to declutter their design process, focus on a simple cohesive story and allow that to naturally unfold. The beautiful florals, design and styling in these images are the product of every attendees work, with the guidance and nurture of the creative leaders.
