From Mandy Forlenza Sticos – “Our inspiration shoot evolved around the question: ‘What would a woodland nymph do the morning of her elopement?

Daydream while lounging with a good book, snack on wild flowers and forage for a woodland bouquet – just simple, wood nymph living.

My hope was to create natural, sunlit images that evoked a serene bride-to-be awaiting her betrothed in a simple foliage crown and our photographer, Fiona Melder captured exactly that!”
