Todays real wedding comes from the Historic Airlie Estate in Virginia. Colleen and Shannon’s wedding took on a “garden romantic” theme which was a reflection on the couples desire for romantic elegance amongst nature. Delaney Dobson Photography was on hand to capture their special day and tells us a little bit about it…

“The floral inspiration was drawn from the the Colleens childhood spent in Australia, while the stationery was all created by the groom’s watercolour artist mother. The beauty of the couple and their story coupled with modern bridal styling creates an absolutely breathtaking collection of images that I am so happy to be sharing with you all.

Elements that are of particular note from this wedding are the stunning florals, which I promise includes the most breathtaking floral hair braid worn by the bride’s “flower girl” sister, a gorgeous Lazaro gown coupled with Jimmy Choos for the bride, and a round of skeet shooting for the groom and his men on the historic property. The groom wore his father’s top hat from his own wedding and then learned a dazzling first dance with his wife choreographed by the bride’s mother.”

Many congratulations to Colleen and Shannon on their beautiful garden romantic wedding. We wish them both a lifetime of happiness.

Much Love
