Into the Woods Wedding Inspo…what a gorgeous forest elopement shoot featuring lush greenery and yards of lace! Vancouver Island is famous for its rainforests and natural beauty, just waiting for lovers to exchange vows.
The sun-dappled scenery is the perfect backdrop for a newlywed oasis. We can’t say enough about the gorgeous gowns by a local designer. She Wore Flowers. The gown pictured above is called ‘Willow’ and comprises two different gowns; a silky golden nude charmeuse inner slip dress and the separate lace outer layer. The leg slit adds a tiny bit of sexy to the bohemian look. A second gown aptly named ‘Midnight Primrose’ as the colors seem to change ever so slightly as the tulle falls and gathers as you walk. A dress specially designed to dance away the night under the stars! We admit it’s hard to tear your eyes off the bride, but the groom holds his own in a relaxed charcoal grey suit.
The upscale boho decor is perfect in this forest setting. Blown-colored glass, pampas grass, and unique pillows are wonderful places for the newlyweds to canoodle. The choice of delicate lace for the table is offset by multiple ivory and blush dishes, antique glasses, and gold cutlery + taper candles—a lush look for the naturally beautiful venue. And the dessert table features delicious looks and a sign that announces it all!
Into the Woods, Wedding Inspo marries the classic and trendy into a lovely fusion of boho forest. Looking to recreate this look for your nuptials? Even if you have a more traditional venue, find a local spot of forest for your photos and set up a similar vibe for photos. Or choose to go full-on with a wedding in the woods!
