A year ago I had the opportunity to shoot this beautiful styled fall wedding inspirational shoot. The weather was perfect and the mountains were absolutely bursting with fall colors. I completed this last year just in the peak of busy season and got caught up in a whirlwind of weddings, engagements and photo shoots… and didn’t get a chance to post these!
So, considering its a beautiful fall wonderland out there, I figured now was the perfect time to share.
We met on a bluff overlooking a meandering canyon and set up all the lovely fall details in the tall golden grasses among stands of oak trees. I’m completely in love with the florals…STILL! The loose, oblong bouquet was full of red and white dalia, garden rose, peony, and ranunculus and was hand tied with lovely fall colored silk ribbons… Dreamy! The horse had his own flower ‘crown’ or maybe its called a garland? Someone let me know in the comments, but it was magical!
We cannot live, except thus mutually
We alternate, aware or unaware,
The reflex act of life: and when we bear
Our virtue onward most impulsively,
Most full of invocation, and to be
Most instantly compellant, certes, there
We live most life, whoever breathes most air
And counts his dying years by sun and sea.
But when a soul, by choice and conscience, doth
Throw out her full force on another soul,
The conscience and the concentration both make
mere life, Love. For Life in perfect whole
And aim consummated, is Love in sooth,
As nature’s magnet-heat rounds pole with pole.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1806 – 1861
