Because of Covid, I haven’t met many of my couples for this year in person. Violet and Garrison are the exception because Violet actually booked me way back in February 2020, when I used to meet people in my home meeting space. I met Violet through Sam and Sean’s 2018 Science Center wedding (Sam was a bridesmaid in Violet’s wedding).
There were so many cool elements of this wedding including – Violet’s mom made her sweetheart table macrame background, while her dad constructed the archway and he made a mushroom table that looked incredible(he’s a retired biology teacher). Violet did a boho look where the colors were “fall sunset” – rose gold, terra cotta, rust, blue, steel, mustard – I wasn’t sure how it all came together but it did. Violet’s sister-in-law served as a “groomslady” – that was unique and we like the non-traditional wedding parties!
Violet told me her colors and theme – earthy, boho, a little rustic. She also mentioned “mushroom” and I assumed that meant tan was one of their colors. Nope – Violet had little mushrooms as décor all over her home and she even brought me some foraged mushrooms to use in her styling kit flat lays. That’s on me not understanding, but what a cool theme and look and element!
The forecast called for rain all day and when I went to Violet and Garrison’s earlier in the week to scout, there were hardly any fall colors. Five days later, the fall colors had really started and there were some great images to be made! We started off with a first look and then the wedding party joined us in Garrison and Violet’s field above their home. I also loved this willow tree at their venue!
The ceremony was able to be held outdoors and the party continued inside the pavilion! It was such a wonderful day and I felt so inspired by Violet incorporating her personality and aesthetic into the day!
Note to the couple:
Violet and Garrison, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
