This enchanting styled shoot from Alex C Tenser Photography is a romantic scene set in the woods of Richmond with the addition of heirloom and vintage pieces. I'm particularly a fan of the beautiful boudoir they created!
An heirloom-filled woodland wedding inspiration shoot in Richmond, VA
An interesting part of this shoot was the idea of breathing life back into sentimental, vintage pieces. For example, the wedding dress was my mother's cotillion gown that was modernized and altered. The jewelry and groom's tie were the model's grandparents'. All of the furniture and settings are vintage finds, but mostly hand-me-down items from family. I wanted to show how brides can incorporate their family and aspects of tradition into their day in a slightly different way. Aside from just inviting the family as a guest, make them feel like they are wrapped up in the event! – Alex
