This incredible Fall shoot by photographer extraordinaire Alea Bebenek of Alea Lovely Photography is just subtle enough to evoke the changing season without that overload of warm color eclipsing the fashion and decor.  There's a hint of Fall focusing on the rustic textures of grassy fields and dormant twisting vines and tree branches,   This is definitely my idea of  Fall in every sense of the word.  Here's what shooter Alea had to say about putting this project together, "We shot on Longview Mansion’s grounds that had a lot of rustic structures we could work with along with the great overgrown grass. With the vision I had to shoot it I just couldn’t find a dress that matched the feeling of what we were going for so I made the dress to capture the very whimsical direction we were headed for and used color in the dress inspired by the  trend of using color. The florist used her great-grandmother’s amazing pink antique depression glass as centerpieces and accents to the flowers and cake. The cake decorator used a brush-like texture on the buttercream to give it a nest-like look. The furniture rentals used were great rustic pieces like old wooden crates, old dress trunks, rusted keys and this great wide bottom over-sized chair that looks like it came straight from the set of Alice and Wonderland. The pergola was a great accent location in front of the water for something a little different."

Hello, Amy-Jo,
Different brides have very different tastes. But you are so brilliant in catering to so many different types of bridal taste. Two examples are Rustic Fall Inspiration Shoot and Invitation to a High Tea wedding. They are very different from each other, but I am certain that a bride with a taste for either would be so happy with what you have prepared.
I cannot believe that many bridal designers are as brilliant and as talented as are you.
The gowns worn in both of these events are just so lovely, in their different ways

It's an amazing piece of photography. I sometimes think why people prefer to have a shoot in the woods or a place close to nature? Is that the theme they choose of something that brings them close to the god's creation?
