Virginia Wedding Inspiration – Garden Fantasy

Styled shoots are a creative way for photographers, stylists, and other wedding pros, to show off their talent and visions to inspire readers for their own wedding planning.

This week’s shoot is a garden dream wedding brought to life with nature; including chic foods, stunning florals and even live animals in a gorgeous botanical garden at The Atrium at Meadow Lark.

The Scoop:

Here’s what the design team behind this shoot had to say:

  • We wanted to do a bold spring colored inspired spread that incorporated some elements that are a little different to show that spring doesn’t need to only be pastels including:
  • Interesting exotic animals
  • Focus on the Grooms
  • Fun foods
  • Nature Inspired
  • Whimsical Garden
  • Unique & Colorful
  • Fresh & Delectable

What we love:

The vibrant colors put us in a happy mood recalling beautiful spring days, the decor is blended perfectly with the Atrium’s backdrop.

We love that there is a focus on the groom, check out that funky coat which pairs with the vibrant colors. Often the groom gets overlooked on the big day!

Bringing nature to life with exotic animals, puts this shoot over the top!

  • Undoubtedly good article. I am always curious to find out another expert opinion. The author provides his individual point of view which is good to compare with the top financial advisors I usually follow on They are always giving such a full detailed analysis that I couldn’t even imagine it’s possible to find something new. Thanks for the information.
