Hailey Yeager of Pretty Planner Weddings & Events just has a way with weddings. Probably because she isn't simply thinking about decor. She's thinking about the moments, the story within and the incredible beauty that follows. And this shoot is just that..a tale of travel, of moving forward, of gorgeous, tangible love with color and color and color for days. With photos by Elisabeth Arin, there is so much more right here.

From Hailey Yeager of Pretty Planner Weddings & Events... There’s something about marriage that plays into my sense of adventure. Saying “I do” means embarking on a journey, facing the unknown together, and bravely moving forward into forever. In the spirit of travel, adventure, and journeys, Audrey Chaney of Botanica Floral & Event Design and I began dreaming up a travel-inspired shoot for the bride and groom that want to infuse a sense of curiosity and wanderlust into their wedding.

This styled shoot showcases how elegant travel-inspired details can be, and how vibrant colors, organic textures, and a bohemian vibe can be juxtaposed to create something magic.

I chose Park Winters for our shoot location because it’s in the middle of nowhere… because when you come upon it, you’re immediately overcome with the feeling that you’ve found something really special. And lastly, because arriving at Park Winters evokes the same feeling that you get when you’re traveling with the one you love, where you share an experience and form a memory that you know will stay with you always.

The estate, with it’s ancient trees, untamed flowering shrubs, and lush foliage served as the perfect backdrop for exotic, bright florals tucked into eclectic brass vessals, colorful glass goblets, bites infused with mango, key lime, and forbidden sticky rice, and a dip-dyed cake topped with gold elephants. We added a striking bohemian bride dripping in delicate lace and the prettiest gold accents, vintage trunks for a hint of nostalgia, geode and Buddha place settings, whimsical invitations, and eclectic layered tapestries into the mix, and the result was something both strikingly unique and completely transportive.

A special thanks to our lovely model (and real bride) Shawni, and all of the awesome creatives involved in making this shoot happen!
