‘Love Letter’ – An Enchanting Woodland Bridal Shoot
KURTZ ORPIA PHOTOGRAPHY
Exquisite florals abound in today’s enchanting Woodland editorial from Sue Gallo Designs. The gorgeous affair unfolds in a magical Fall forest, with the bare trees and bed of crispy Autumn leaves the perfect blank canvas for the incredible red blooms. With vintage elements including a beautiful long sleeved wedding dress from Second Dance, a velvet chair from Warehouse 84 as well as a calligraphy love letter by Corsivo Calligraphy; all flawlessly captured by Kurtz Orpia….. I simply can not take my eyes of these images!
Just before I let you go and feast your eyes on every breathtaking detail, a few words from Sue about the inspiration behind her vision…“Our love letter creative was intended to have a romantic feel. That of a bride, alone reading a love letter from her beloved, hand delivered to her on the morning of her wedding. But then some thing magical happened when we stepped into our woodland setting off of the Niagara escarpment.
The vision that came to life was more magical, fairytale, almost dream like. The setting was enchanting, seemingly like a magical once forgotten forest realm. Our bride becomes alone, seeking the messenger of a romantic and dreamy love note in left the magical woods especially for her to find. The lonely patch of periwinkle vines, the over turned roots, the lonely less traveled path, the dusk sky and our beautiful vintage gown all play a role in creating this imaginary world. The images captured by our photographer Kurtz Orpia seem more enchanted than we could have imagined. We were truly spellbound! We just hope you find our creative as inspiring as we did, it truly has a special spot in our hearts!”
Isn’t it stunning? So romantic…. I just love the bright red against the muted woodland tones. As always I must say a big thankyou to all of the incredible vendors whose creativity breathed life into this enchanting shoot – you will find them listed below. A special thankyou to the fabulous Sue Gallo (a CVB fave) for her beautiful florals and to Kurtz Orpia for perfectly capturing every detail.
