Sweet, soft, beautiful. We love this stunning inspiration shoot styled by Joy Proctor and photographed by Sara Hasstedt. We just can’t get enough of all of the delicate textures and movement in these images, and we adore how Jess Wilcox styled the model’s long, luxurious hair. If you’re looking for a classic and elegant wedding, you can easily pull inspiration from this elegant photoshoot.

From Joy Proctor:

With this editorial we envisioned a young girl, walking through the gardens of her parents Chateau on the eve of her wedding.  Her creamy gown, mimicing the nude colors of the stone in the fountain and walls around her.  Thinking about the day before her, as in a dream, she lets down her hair as she wanders through the estate.

I am absolutely in love with that dress, it is soft, ethereal, and stunning! The makeup is fabulous as well, the slight sheen on her lips is perfect.

Featured Simple Wedding Inspiration from Nature

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
