Floral Design

Little Farmhouse Flowers did such an amazing job. This sustainable company grows their own flowers. She brought the perfect organic touch to this day!

The beautiful tones of color reflected on the water. Therefore, I particularly enjoyed the light over the rugged rocks. I took these images on my favorite film stock kodak portra 400.

Indeed, this modern take on a wedding gown is so chic. However, it is still in a way timeless. For instance, the trend of puff sleeves seems to come and go. In addition, the two piece design brings a youthful feel.
