We love the clean-lined look of the Scandinavian design behind today’s gorgeous editorial by Chestnut & Vine, who were inspired by childhood memories of wandering through the hillsides of Southern Germany as they came up with the details to incorporate into the setting. Working with Josh Gruetzmacher and Be Hitched Event Planning and Design, the team set out to evoke the quiet elegance that comes from European countrysides, and also draw upon their love for European-inspired design.
Chestnut & Vine says, The gorgeous setting of Chalk Hill Clematis — a working flower, olive and honey farm nestled in the hills of Sonoma County — was like a mini Europe right in our backyard. That balance and play became a central theme to all details of the shoot — such as our bride wearing a relaxed, timeless LOHO Bride gown paired with modern designed Bryr Clogs. We highly value artisanal production and craftsmanship, and are proud to say that all of our products were picked from local vendors and artisans (including floral materials picked directly at the farm!). The images that resulted from this shoot are alive with the love that all of us bring to the table for our couples, day in and out.
We adore this simple, relaxed ceremony site, with green + white florals by Chestnut & Vine working alongside the natural, wooded backdrop.
How pretty is this simple Elise Hameau 3/4 sleeve dress?! So perfect for an early Autumn wedding!
We love this shoot’s fresh palette of gray, copper, ivory + blue!
And the pretty paper goods by Sweet + Crafty were a great fit for simple, easy going tablescape.
Scandinavian sweets and a gorgeous, modern white wedding helped end the shoot on a perfect note.
A big thanks to the team below for sharing this lovely editorial today!
