lavender wedding inspiration

Ladies, you are going to love this lavender inspiration shoot from Chelsea of Bit of Ivory Photography! It’s a little English garden mixed with a little American rustic, and it’s all oh-so-perfect.

From Chelsea: “Since going to England I have been utterly obsessed with lavender, especially after trying to get myself to a real English lavender farm and failing. I fell madly in love with the scent, the look, and the feel. Everything. I don’t mean the color… because technically I’ve been obsessed with that since I was a little girl (according to my mother). The plant/flower became my new inspiration.”

“There is something so simple and so versatile about lavender that I find inspiring. As I learned more about it, I wanted to do something with it:  a shoot just for me because lavender became such a personal concept.”

Isn’t this shoot fabulous? I just love it when I see creatives really go for it and produce something so beautiful that is inspired by something so personal! Normally I have a pretty easy time picking out a favorite element from a styled shoot but this time – no luck. The cake, her hair, that lace dress, the bouquet, the gorgeous setting, the way the stationary mimics the barn…it’s all too amazing.
