Rustic Elegance: Romantic Woodland Styled Shoot

Happy almost-Valentine's Day! As an eternal hopeless romantic and lover of all things pretty, there's nothing about this psuedo-holiday that I don't love, from the candy to the cards to the color scheme - which is why I was thrilled to share this romantic styled shoot just in time for V-Day. Though the rustic and elegant tableau that Nikita Lee dreamed up for the photos below wasn't necessarily created with Valentine's in mind, the shoe sure fits. Rich reds and dainty pinks pop against the wooded background and muted details, while little touches of glamour like gilded plates and a beaded gown add just the right amount of romance to an otherwise rustic affair. Keep scrolling to see what the photographer had to say about this beautiful day!

From the photographer:

"Inspired by the beautiful woodlands of Oregon and the desire to create a delicate, unique and luxurious display of how rustic and elegant design details can walk hand-in-hand. Each piece and vendor was carefully curated to create this beautiful editorial. I am so grateful to all the talented women who were involved. Designing and photographing this was such a dream!"
