Welcome to ‘The Land of Milk and Honey’ — a place filled with luxurious beauty, and so much sweetness. Here, jewel-toned flowers cover rugged + wild oak trees and the land provides for all. Inspired by the “milk and honey” metaphor as something that refers to all good things — Adriane White Photography teamed up with Elsbeth Mumm of Wild Abandon Design to craft some deliciously decadent wedding inspiration. It’s sultry, yet delightfully sweet, and as the bride and groom pause for a deep embrace, their love is as thick as honey and as abundant as a never-ending feast.
The team tells us We really wanted to create some magic and let creative energy fly… So we assembled a team and allowed them complete creative freedom to do something that they’d been wanting to create but hadn’t been able to. Their humor, playfulness, and killer taste set the stage for an artistic interpretation of a traditional barn wedding. The idea of “milk and honey” was so rich and would allow us to complement everyone’s unique style. To top it off, we found real-life couple, Sarah + Keith (plus their adorable dog, Yeti), and they really brought the genuine love + attraction that we wanted to highlight.
