Natural + Elegant Wedding Inspiration

northwest nature inspiration

Today’s lovely styled shoot, photographed by Jess Hunter, captures the rustic, wild, + untouched beauty of the great outdoors, and blends it with layers of understated elegance. When integrated with intention, the juxtaposition of these two opposing styles can act as the prettiest foundation for a beautiful + romantic outdoor wedding. Wouldn’t you agree?!

The table decor by Vintage Ambiance expressed the theme to a T. And textural feel of the overgrown floral arrangements, designed by Kelly of Botanique, really popped against the foggy, muted scenery. Get ready to swoon over all the prettiness…

The focal flower in this beautiful bouquet was acidanthria (common name peacock orchid), and it was accented with rust amaranthus, fern, evergreen + snowberry sprigs. Super in love!
