Bride and groom posed on steps surrounded by summer florals and bouquet

The images from this incredible editorial contain stunning summer inspiration and ideas for brides planning their dream summertime weddings. One of the favorite moments from this butterfly-inspired wedding editorial was when an actual butterfly flew down - unplanned, of course - and landed on the florals as the head table was being photographed!  Make sure to keep scrolling to hear more about this shoot planned by  Hawthorne And Poppy Events and Jenna Mcelroy and photographed by Sweet Valley Photography.  Flowers for the editorial were provided courtesy of Blumen Floral Co. and perfectly complemented the setting of The Arlo.  And don't forget to click on the gallery at the bottom of the page to see all of the pictures from this day!

Many talented vendors were involved to make this session jaw-dropping and one for the books. From the mood board to the day of shooting, everything flowed together so smoothly.
