Timeless Autumn Wedding Inspiration


A beautiful plantation venue with a tree-lined driveway and expansive grounds forms the perfect backdrop for this classically elegant wedding inspiration! Add to it some lush fall hues, a delicious table of seasonal pies, a timeless long sleeve wedding dress and the most dapper 4 legged ring bearer, and well, you pretty much have the wedding of my dreams…..

Timelessly Elegant Fall Wedding Inspiration

I know most of you are seeing the first signs of Spring, but here in New Zealand the leaves are starting to turn and I for one couldn’t be happier as it is my absolute favourite time of year – especially for a wedding! And today’s shoot is the perfect showcase of why – the soft Autumn light, the yummy looking seasonal desserts and of course that gorgeous dress!

Anyway, to tell us a little more about it, here is photographer Terri Isenhour with a few words, “This shoot was inspired by the southern aspect of this beautiful plantation in Gordonsville, Virginia.  The main house was built circa 1774 and inhabits all the history you can imagine when first stepping foot on the grounds. The trees cascading over the long driveway going down to the main house were a perfect frame for this shoot. 

The gown showcased a sheer lace with delicately covered buttons and a sweeping train. To top off this elopement was a decadent southern red velvet cake with a hand made sugar magnolia and the lattice mini cherry pies are like the “cherries on the top”.”

Everything is perfection, but I confess it is that oh-so-cute fur baby in his bow tie that steals my heart every time I look at him!
