Happy Monday, cakies. What’s in store for your week-before-Thanksgivings? (Whaaaat.) Hope you’ll be able to squeeze in just a teensy bit of time for the weddings we’re featuring this week, like this Georgia editorial Hannah Forsberg sent our way. She was behind the photography + planning and enlisted a ton of talents to show off how timeless and classically romantic a vineyard wedding could be.
Sigh, The Mrs. Box… always an inspired touch.
They chose Montaluce Winery and Estates because it whisks you away to France without going any farther than the North Georgia mountains.
Hannah explains, As an ode to autumn and leaves about to change, gold was incorporated into the tablescape and the paper goods. Each piece of the invitation suite was lettered in French and I could not be more overwhelmed by how beautiful they are. To top everything off a deep tone of red was included into the bouquet and centerpiece to celebrate autumn. Our bride and groom wore the most stunning pieces. A Rosa Clara gown from La Raine’s Boutique featured delicate sleeves, paired with a dashing black tux polished the entire look of the shoot.
Flawless color palette alert.
There’s something so incredibly timeless and inspiring about vineyards—the heart, and sweat, and effort put in and then the surrender of yourself, of letting all go and trusting and hoping and waiting in every season…Taking each day in, wholly and fully – giving and receiving a whole lot of grace. I think that’s what love is a little bit like, too and I wanted this shoot to be a reflection of that, of surrender and contentment, of being all there. I think so often as humans, we forget how to feel in a world characterized by hurry and so focused on the next item on our agenda, growing a little numb to the big things in life we encounter, and sometimes even one of the happiest days of our lives. I wanted this editorial to be a reminder to all of us, that it’s okay to slow down to feel and remember the little things again, to remember the sweet touches and glances and the hearty laughs, because time is such a precious gift and there’s so much beauty and joy in the little things.
So well put, Hannah. Thanks to everyone below who came together for this shoot!
