Back in the fall Joy Thigpen traveled up to shoot at Early Mountain Vineyard with Eric and Lora Kelley in anticipation of the beautiful, spring weather to come. With delicate flowers and vintage lace as their inspiration, they created a lovely setting perfect for any spring time wedding. Although baby’s breath gets a bad rep in the wedding world, I think it can be an absolutely lovely choice when sourcing flowers to sprinkle down the aisle. It’s delicate enough to keep things light, but without getting lost up against the grass.
