Weddings, at their core, are celebrations, so we really can't think of a better theme than popping bottles! Lauren Potter wanted to capture the vibe of a modern wedding but incorporate a few vintage elements that never go out of style. The bride and groom were elegant without being too buttoned up in a blousy champagne satin gown and timeless black suit. And the crisp white lines from the greenhouse frame mixed with the view of the outside made for the perfect fusion of man-made meets Mother Nature.
Photographer, Lauren Potter, was inspired by the charm of Chapel House Estate, specifically their greenhouse.

On top of the styling, we're also in love with these moody, high-contrast shots that capture the quintessential cloudy day in the countryside.

Having a real couple was really important for this shoot so I could capture the couple's real love connection in the photographs.

Pretty Please by Katie created a natural and beautiful bridal look with a gorgeous half up half down, adding braids and plaits to showcase the model bride's long Rapunzel-esque hair. The dress color was champagne with a satin finish and long sleeves for a modern vintage look.
