Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and this styled shoot from Maple and Elm Photography, Organized Styles, and Felicity Blooms makes us wish it was even closer. Gorgeous floral design, watercolor touches, and heaps of pinks and reds are just the tip of the iceberg here — take a look for yourself!

From the photographer, Maple and Elm Photography: Most brides choose a rustic theme if they want an outdoor garden wedding, but with copper tones and a little bit of marble, it changes the whole feel. We also had our bride wear a beaded crop top and a chiffon maxi skirt that made her look modern, yet whimsical. We did a few DIY projects, such as the dyed ribbons throughout the styled shoot (bouquet, chairs, and ceremony backdrop), dyed the napkins, as well as painting the backdrop. We chose a rustic wood table with modern red chairs from Witty Rentals to tie in the garden/modern theme. We wanted the flowers to be whimsical but fun so we chose deep reds and pinks. This shoot gives brides a fun modern touch to a very popular garden wedding style.
