To wrap up our day of garden wedding pretty, we give you this absolutely lovely photoshoot that the always inspiring team at Simply Bloom Photography sent our way. It take garden gorg to an entirely new level and I think that I could live forever in so many of these photographs. So for all of you garden brides out there, this is a moment where you can kick up your heels, grab a mason jar filled to the brim with lemonade (full disclosure: mine might have a little some-thin some-thin in it) and prepare to lose yourself in the beautiful…

Don’t worry, garden brides…no one in the world would expect you to have a wedding that looks like it’s been torn out of the pages of a glossy. The reason that we will always love photoshoots like this beautiful one by Simply Bloom Photography is that they can give you ideas for color palettes, flowers, subtle details. Little moments of pretty that you can thread through your own wedding day. To put it simply, they allow you to be inspired and to dream a little bit. They aren’t real though and the layers that you will bring to your real wedding will always outshine the perfect styling. Here’s to Garden Gorg.

From Simply Bloom Photography, LLCWith this inspirational photo shoot we wanted to showcase the quaintness of our local botanical gardens, and all the charming nooks that this venue offers for photos. Simultaneously, we wanted to inspire brides to think outside the box with small details such as favors containers (ours were in a lantern) or using a pot as a pie stand. A local botanical garden is a wonderful place for a charming wedding, and if the grounds allow, there are typically countless picture perfect vignettes throughout, not only for photos, but for a quaint and timeless outside wedding.
