 I wanted to style a Bridal look for this week's post (after all we are in wedding season). Perhaps it's due to my recent fix of Etsy & Pinterest browsing, filled with so many adorable ideas for a vintage-feel outdoor wedding that has left me inspired. Whatever the reason, I knew I wanted to shoot my laid back bride in the woods for a rustic, romantic feel; so I grabbed my sister/photographer, my model with her mandolin in tow and away we went.
