It seems that a setting as stunning as Antelope Island State Park in Utah can’t get more beautiful, but this dreamy shoot proves otherwise. Designer Martha Hatfield pulled from the unique backdrop to create a breathtaking scene for any outdoor setting. The whole thing was captured by photographer Claire Marika.

A delicate DIY wire crown is accessory enough for this ethereal setting…

But of course, a shimmering nature-inspired ring doesn’t hurt either!

Tips for creating a similar bridal look, c/o Martha: Opt for a gown that has an ethereal quality to it to add to the understated elegance of the day. Be sure to work closely with your hair and makeup artist to create a soft look that complements the gown you’ve selected. The final touch? An elegant wire and bead crown that can be crafted in the days leading up to your wedding day.

Martha, on complementing nature: A sophisticated palette of soft neutrals allows for the natural beauty of the blossoms in any arrangement to shine. Wood chairs pair nicely with the neutral color palette and can echo the tones found in your outdoor location. A simple announcement suite, complete with deckled edges, can set the tone of the event for your guests while feeling cohesive with the location, tablescape and overall aesthetic of the day.
