I’m not exaggerating when I say the view at Rockwood Lodge in Highlands, NC, took my breath away. The combination of the most luxurious log cabin you’ve ever stepped foot in and the Blue Ridge Mountains filling your senses was unreal. You feel as though you’ve hopped across the pond to the scenery of Ireland. It is refreshing and crisp and oh-so-lovely.
That idea of crisp mountain air in the spring really inspired the rich colors and the feel of this shoot. I wanted to showcase how mountain life isn’t always rustic and heavy, but can easily lend itself to opulence. Joining forces with some brilliant wedding vendors, we combined shades of moss green and sky blue with lush florals and springtime plaids. Styling this shoot made me feel as though I was waking up to spring after a long, winter slumber – not quite ready to give up my plaid throw or cup of tea on cool mornings, but ready for the hope that Spring always brings.
Spring can’t get here fast enough, but this will suffice for now.
