Free-Spirited Fall Vow Renewal

anniversary shoot

With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, what better way to get in the holiday spirit than with a super lovely fall vow renewal, brimming with pretty ideas for fall brides or last minute holiday decor! Captured by Frenzel Studios, this editorial is full of fun, homespun details that would be easy to recreate for your own celebration. Think birch branch wreaths repurposed as plate chargers and lovely pinecone-filled cloche dome centerpieces, just to name a few! And I’m totally smitten with the lovely fall-inspired floral design, which incorporates some unexpected elements like cotton seed pods + pheasant feathers. Here’s a bit more from Jessica + Luke, who celebrated their first anniversary right around the time of the shoot:

Our shoot was a cool opportunity for me to think about my wedding with a different theme and atmosphere, utilizing the gorgeous property at Cedarwood. We created a beautifully romantic, autumnal and intimate setting in the wild grasses of the nature preserve; it felt like we had run away in late October to elope in a secluded, grassy field in the Irish countryside!  Luke and I had so much fun feeling like newlyweds again and will treasure these memories and photos forever.
