Looking for some fabulous fall or outdoor wedding ideas for the beautiful Virginia countryside? Then look no further than today’s rustic chic wedding inspiration photographed Lindsey Zovko Photography who beautifully captured a bridal portrait session at the The Market at Grelen in Somerset, Virginia. The inspiration for this bridal session was a bird charm dating back to the Civil War that the bride wore around her neck. With that in mind, the wedding vendor team went minimal on decor and rich in color to mimic the look flawlessly. You know we love the fall here in the DC area and this inspiration is perfect for a fall wedding especially with the rustic bridal bouquet that is overflowing with autumn wedding colors. We can’t get enough of the rolling hills and stunning Virginia landscape that set the scene for a calm and relaxing bridal portait session.
From Lindsey: Her bridal look was vintage inspired, and it was all designed around a beautiful bird charm that dates back to the Civil War. The charm was such a gorgeous heirloom piece that we knew it needed to stand out. Therefore, we went with a simple, but unique wedding gown that is an original, custom made creation. The low neckline of the bridal dress allowed the charm to shine, and the versatile back was perfect for allowing the bride to transition from a warmer ceremony to a cooler evening reception. Her hair was kept loose and free, and the bridal halo was just the right piece to complete her sweet, vintage, relaxed look.
The Market at Grelen, one of the largest tree nurseries in the state of Virginia and a gorgeous wedding venue, recently added a beautiful bridal suite onto their property. This bridal shoot was meant to showcase the suite and give inspiration for utilizing a beautiful dressing space on their wedding day.As for the flowers, the colors were chosen to compliment the bird charm, and the organic nature of the bridal bouquet went perfectly with the flow of the gown.
