If you’re in need of a gorgeous setting for a wedding or a shoot, there’s really nothing like stepping outside of the box (literally) and heading outdoors. Chelsea Q. White Photography and Ivory & Lace Events headed to their nearest dreamy waterfall, took one look at it, and the ideas for this shoot began to form. To contrast the rugged look of their surroundings, they went for softness everywhere: in the styling and in the muted colors with little pops of brightness thanks to the florals by Moss Floral Design.

From the photographer, Chelsea Q. White Photography: Both Kristen (of Ivory & Lace Events) and I wanted to create a romantic, intimate editorial centered around this gorgeous waterfall just north of the Texas-Oklahoma border. With such beautiful and raw scenery, we wanted to keep the elements minimal yet romantic and organic – something a bride could easily attain if she opted for a low-key wedding celebration.

We imagine our bride, SaraBeth, setting the scene with details like linen napkins and delicate escort cards. The Truvelle gown was the perfect combination of feminine and yet unfussy for a wedding in the outdoors. Her tousled fishtail braid and sweet makeup enhanced her girlish style yet looked natural enough that she could’ve done it on her own. The wild, unstructured flowers added a hint of bohemia to the shoot. We loved the way Moss Floral incorporated the raw silk ribbon from Silk & Willow in the bouquet and a few pops of color in the centerpiece in an otherwise muted environment. As SaraBeth prepared for the big day, we imagined her penning a heartfelt love note to her beholden, the one for whom she waited at the waterfall.

From the planner, Kristen of Ivory & Lace EventsDuring the Christmas holiday last year, I did a lot of hiking with my husband and it turned out to be a huge source of inspiration for this shoot. I wanted to create a look that drew heavily on nature and the natural beauty of the environment that I witnessed during hiking. I wanted an atmosphere that was as elegantly otherworldly as it was natural. The organic beauty of Turner Falls was where we drew inspiration from and was really the cornerstone of the shoot.

There’s no better way to capture a beautifully natural environment with bountiful blooms, free flowing water and long-lingering light. We paired blush-hued florals with soft green foliage and long branches loosely nestling them together in a way that made them seem like they were spilling out of their vases. The long silk ribbon blew in the wind as if to mimic the flow of the waterfall. The gown offers a soft look which was elegantly paired to the ethereal texture of the rocks and surrounding elements. The highlight of this shoot is captured through the colors of the waterfall and the delicate palette that was carefully chosen to balance out the rough terrain of Turner Falls.
