When photographer, Serena, of Love by Serena, stumbled upon Cold Saturday Farm in Finksburg, Maryland, she immediately wanted to create + photograph something there. With the holidays quickly approaching, an editorial embracing simplicity, elegance + natural elements – mixed with the rich colors of the season – felt just right. Teaming up with Celebrating Love by Marcie and aiming to produce a scene with an ethereal vibe, Serena’s vision for the shoot came to life in the most beautiful way. The perfect inspiration for winter brides or holiday soirées, we think!
Floral swings are seriously one of our most favorite things!
Serena shares, Marcie is constantly inspired by nature – especially by what is currently in season at the local market. She incorporated the deep scarlet red of pomegranates, cranberries and pears, along with the rich purple shades of grapes and plums. The sheer, flowing table runner and beautiful hand dyed silk floral ribbons from Silk & Willow complemented the softness and simplicity of the wedding dress.
The cake table (with a pretty naked cake by La Cakerie) was designed to seem as if it was a part of the woodsy setting – placed amongst the red and yellow leaves from the passing of autumn.
Thanks so much to Serena + the talented team below for getting us into the sweetest holiday spirit!
