Sophisticated, simple, and with an heirloom quality of history to it, we love this wedding inspiration shoot. Sealed with a Kiss Events, the designer of this shoot, says: “If I were to paint a picture of romance it would be two lovers in an old world European garden.” With soft hair and makeup, flowing dresses, and organic, textured florals, we think this is the perfect way to end 2015.
Here’s to 2016, dear brides – wishing you all the very, very best as you plan your sweet weddings and beautiful marriages!
More from the photographer, Hannah Suh:
“The first time I visited the mission style campus of St. Vincent’s School for Boys, a sprawling Catholic Church and School tucked into the hills of San Francisco’s North Bay, I felt like I was transported a distant European countryside estate. The stone work pathways and long lanes flanked by trees reminded my so much of Italy and I knew right away that I wanted to build a shoot around this old world classically romantic setting. So along with Lara from Sealed with a Kiss events, we dreamt up a shoot that would reflect the elegance and timeless simplicity of this beautiful setting.”
