With the dawn of Fall upon us, the wonders of nature abound. Imagine discovering the treasures of the woodland trails of Montgomery Pinetum, Connecticut this time of year. Then picture an enchanting forest themed wedding that is undeniably pretty with a touch of whimsical. That is just what Kristina Staal Photography delivered with this styled shoot. Taking a naturally breathtaking setting and adding the romantic elegance of a Kelly Faetanini wedding dress creates a bit of added magic for us with the moss roofed stone hut in Cos Cob's clearing as the backdrop. Jack & Grace Events were behind the planning of this wooded wonderland scene with Carrie Wilcox Floral Design and Coppola Creative. It is equal parts classic and romantic and every part dreamy delivering a touch of wanderlust for the bride imagining something a little different as her fairytale.

Enchanting Forest Themed Wedding

The overall idea of this enchanting forest themed wedding was actually a friendly photographer competition - a shoot out of sorts. Bringing together a sense of community. Kristina Staal Photography's images from the day give the editorial a fine art look that focuses on the bride in her Kelly Faetanini from A Little Something White Bridal Couture which of course we adore. Kelly's gowns are the perfect match. Her designs are synonymous with femininity, elegance and exude the essence of a classic soul with a modern twist. Above all she has a wide assortment of styles that are break the mold for brides looking for a stand out wedding dress. The flowing femininity of this style brings a softness to the lush surroundings of the forest. Almost every little girl falls desperately in love with tales of Happily Ever After. This inspiration evokes those same childhood dreams for today's bride, with a whimsical but modern twist. As if in an enchanted forest of a storybook, the natural and woodsy ambience it not only sweet, but completely. One to inspire a magical storybook day, without going over the top.
