A Wedding Shoot Inspired by Hit Movie, Legends of the Fall

Did you ever watch the movie Legends of the Fall? (I can’t believe it came out 23 years ago!) The raw beauty of that film always stuck with me… so when Jeremiah and Rachel Photography and Greenwood Events sent over this inspiration shoot that SO perfectly captures that ranch life, I knew it was a sure win for those of you planning rustic fetes. It’s one you’ll want to spend some time pinning my friends, promise.

From Jeremiah and Rachel PhotographyThis past September, we had the privilege of collaborating with Greenwood Events and The Resort at Paw’s Up to work on a shoot that had been on our hearts for years. We had a vision of showing Montana in it’s best light, romantic, wild, passionate and untouched. We adore the story Legends of the Fall, and Tristan’s fight against himself. It might be a tragic story, but the happiest he is in that movie is when he’s with his true love, Isobel. And that’s where this shoot was born from. The Resort at Paw’s Up is one of the most beautiful places in Montana, and just being on the ranch was awe inspiring. Darci and Arden of Greenwood Events tapped right into our hearts and created this entire setting, even making a field of wildflowers for our lovely couple.

This Couple Recreated Their Wedding Day 4 Years Later

Kristina and Parta married back in 2012 but didn’t end up with the photos of their dreams. Instead of the typical anniversary, they decided to re-create their wedding day, including their two children and close friends in the celebration. Paper Diamonds planned the prettiest wedding re-do you’ve ever seen and Nadia Hung captured the photographs they’ll treasure forever.

From Paper Diamonds… I’ve had the pleasure of knowing both Kristina and Parta for awhile now and they have the most beautiful children you will ever meet. They married atop the cliffs of Uluwatu in 2012 and sadly, didn’t get a chance to have a bridal shoot or receive images that they loved. I was thrilled when they allowed Nadia Hung and I re-create a special day, with her small family and her best friends.

The day started in the magical Ubud with Kristina and her bridesmaids. Kristina exudes a classy feminine energy and the gowns from Gwendolynne really matched with the statuesque beauties. We paired the gowns with local designer Ali Charisma and Tulola Jewellery as well and were thrilled to be able to incorporate some local and cultural aspects.

Jill from Jill Loves Lace, flew in from Taiwan to create the beautiful florals for all the bouquets and arrangements. We went from mountains to cliffs in one day and it really couldn’t reflect Bali and it’s beauty any better. There is nothing more Bali than the rich greens of Ubud and the golden sunsets when perched on a cliff.

Intimate Amalfi Coast Wedding with a Fireworks Finish

The simple beauty and intimacy of this day reminds me a bit of my own. Of course, I didn’t say I do on the stunning Amalfi Coast… but I fully embraced candlelight, loads of blooms, like these from Myrtle et Olive, and an unforgettable fireworks finish. Jemma Keech snapped it all up so perfectly with Marco Caputo Films, and you can find the rest in The Vault!

From Joy Proctor DesignJem & Brodie were married at the historic Duomo di Amalfi in the sweet seaside town of Amalfi, Italy. Joined by 40 of their closes friends from Australia, they celebrated with a four course Italian meal and reception at the Hotel Caruso in Ravello. After the reception the guests made their way to the terrace to watch fireworks.

From the Bride… The dream for our wedding was a small, intimate affair, focused on family, friends and food! We met seven years before we got engaged working as a cashier girl and fruit and vegetable boy. We knew if we married in our home town it would need to be a large wedding so a destination wedding was perfect. Where else than the spectacular Amafli Coast with it’s picturesque villages, coastal mountains and turquoise sea. We spent a sun drenched week with our nearest and dearest, eating pizza, drinking lemoncello, visiting Capri and enjoying la dolce vita. For the wedding, the styling was really important to me. We knew we would need a stellar wedding planner to coordinate all the details for us. Enter Joy Proctor. I found her on Instagram, she had styled a shoot at the Belmond Hotel Ravello and it was just exactly want I had wanted. So very quickly we had the venue and the planner picked! Joy was a dream. Her impeccable taste, attention to detail and network of vendors made every detail perfect. The stationary by Written Word Calligraphy and the florals by Heather from Myrtle et Olive were better than we could have dreamed. It rained on the day but Joy didn’t miss a beat, she was calming, positive and swiftly moved our outside wedding inside. Without Joy I would have been a stressed-out mess, l trusted her so much I handed over all the decision making to her, so I could focus on my friends and family and husband to be. She turned a room in the hotel to a candle and flower filled dining room. Our jaws dropped when we walked in!! Our guests feasted on four courses featuring the best produce from the Amalfitana Costiera. Brodie is catholic and we really wanted to be legally married on the day by the priest. It is much easier to have a symbolic ceremony and a legal one in Australia but we were really glad we went to the effort. We met the local English speaking priest Father a year before and luckily he agreed to marry us in the Duomo di Amalfi, a spectacular 9th century cathedral in Amalfi. Our photographer Jemma Keech is Australian based too but I desperately wanted her to shoot the wedding over selecting a local Italian vendor. I was concerned about language barriers when it came to explaining the look we wanted to capture. Add in a husband who hates his photo being taken and it was worth every cent. We had our engagement shoot with her and Jemma somehow made him feel comfortable, even making him laugh. She did so again on the wedding day, and every image is one to be cherished. All the guests loved her! My dress was also found on Instagram, and I flew to Adelaide to met Paul from Paolo Sebastian. From the moment I stepped into his chandelier-lit studio I knew I had found the dress. He was so wonderful and caring as was his divine team. The whole process was so fun! He even included a hand written note wishing us well which I read on the day. I felt like Cinderella. The wedding was a fairy tale and we were trilled so many of our friends & family came from all over Australia and Scotland for the day. Brodie’s best man went the extra mile, flying over for only 48 hours in between commitments. We will never forget the incredible party we had, the people, the food, beautiful Ravello and (finally) becoming husband and wife.
