It may be almost exactly a year later but these images captured by the incredible Lynn Dunston are still taking my breath away, all this time later! River Farm in Virginia is a magical botanical garden that sits alongside a gorgeous river. There may be so many bugs in the summer but the dense line of trees and the gorgeous grounds make it all worth it!! We had so much fun styling fruit plates and baskets and making this crazy huge bouquet that was filled with lots of locally foraged foliage and some of our favorite roses from Florabundance in California. There is a richness to the Summer on the East Coast that one cannot find in California. The Summer rains and the lushness and beauty of local flora and fauna is undeniable. You could easily imagine some beautiful women in fantastic wedding dresses similar to what you’d find at winniecouture.com fitting right in. These images are the perfect representation of the climbing vines and lush foliage that can add gorgeous organic textures to any summer garden wedding. If you are planning a Summer Garden Wedding in Virginia definitely must check this place out. Also, can we please take a moment and oooh and awe at this amazing dress from Shop Gossamer!? If you want to feel like a total queen on your day, you can snag the dress here!
