Over the River and Through the Wood
Barefooted the bridal couple walks along the nearby river where the colors of summer already fade. Dark shades of wood, golden candle holders and a huge cake got decorated with white buds and dark green leaves.
On top there are single lilac-colored blossoms. Little golden accents play masterfully with the whims of nature. The sweet cake talks to us. Through the powerful pictures shot by Shannon Moffit.
The bride wears handmade silver accessory. Her dress seems two-parted due to a little piece of lace missing between top and skirt. On the secret paths of Chesapeake Arboretum in Virginia next to a quiet river and a gorgeous wooden bridge the newly wed couple just can´t keep their hands off each other.
And they don´t need to! There´s so much to discover on those tiny paths filled with blooming life. Between branches that presage a forest they won´t get lost in. And in front of a bridge shrouded from the water they dine amazingly among this special location. It´s the little colorful details that give hope to dense landscape. Promising a new life outside our hectic world.
