Enchanting Redwoods Forest Wedding Inspiration Shoot

This enchanting redwoods forest styled shoot was inspired by the classic tale of red riding hood and includes a modern twist. From the burgundy tux to the vintage rentals to the Hayley Paige princess dress to the moody floral arrangements, every detail of this shoot will inspire brides to get married in a forest.

We included natural elements such as redwood ferns, a tree with a natural shelf to host the cake and of course the gorgeous forest setting as a backdrop for all the images. The simple and elegant lounge area was set up in a fairy circle {a natural circle created by redwoods} and incorporates a vintage mirror straight out of a fairy tale with the words “you enchant me” inscribed to tie together the shoot.

While the sweetheart table was set amongst the trees and decorated with gem-tone glassware, gold silverware, long candlesticks and finished with a love seat for two.

For photos that will inspire the modern and moody princess bride, see my favorites below, and find it featured on California Wedding Day.
