From Nicole Colwell Photography – “I am obsessed with ivy and when I found out about this ivy covered church I knew I had to do a shoot there! I literally planned this in two days but I think it turned out beautifully.

I wanted a natural simple look because I didn’t want to take away from the beauty of the church, so we did a ‘earthy’ look. The dress is a traditional lace dress and we paired it with a veil with lace accents. The bride wore an ivy/greenery crown that was simple but added to this bride’s look. The sweetheart table was adored with Spanish moss, baby’s breath, and gold-trimmed China. We finished off the details with a cake that was showcased on a tree stump stand surrounded with Spanish moss and topped with white roses.”
