Google+ Big Sky Wedding Inspiration by Anna Smith and Keestone Events - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Though a big part of my job is creating editorial shoots, to be honest, I’d take a real wedding over a “faux” one any day. There’s just something about the joy, love, and ease at a real celebration that’s hard to replicate! That’s exactly why I love the photos we’re sharing today, however. Even though though no one actually said “I do” on the day they were taken, they’re undeniably full of joy and make me smile just to look at them. I hope they do the same for you!

Hugs to Anna Smith for these photos and Keestone Events for styling the details!

From the planner:

The concept behind this styled shoot was to create a mix of both vintage and Southern elements, with a whole lot of charm thrown in. The bride is someone who grew up with horses and is an equestrian. Incorporating her horses into the shoot was an absolute must, as they have been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. Movement was a big theme in the shoot, from the soft grass blowing in the wind to the airiness of the bride’s dress. Watters did a fabulous job here, pairing two separate pieces into one ethereal, dreamy dress! We really wanted to showcase how agile yet majestic the horses are, and to bring the entire shoot back to nature. The venue we were at, Big Sky, was perfect, as it has acres and acres of fields as far as the eye can see! We wanted to keep the color palette soft and muted to let the couple and their horses speak for themselves.
