Virginia Wedding Inspiration- Nature’s Beauty

Styled shoots are a creative way for photographers, stylists, and other wedding pros, to show off their talent and visions to inspire readers for their own wedding planning.

Today’s featured shoot is the second version of an Indian styled shoot featured several weeks ago and was the vision of a group of talented wedding pros led by Exceptional Events by Elisa and Butterfly Photography. 

The Scoop:

Inspired by the breathtaking natural setting at Luray Caverns in The Shenandoah Valley, the shoot was put together by an amazing team of wedding pros to capture the natural and organic elements of the caverns and the venue’s property.

Luray Caverns is the largest caverns in the eastern United States, yet walking through feels more akin to an unearthly experience.

What we love:

The ethereal beauty of caverns, provides a unique backdrop for an unforgettable wedding experience for you and your guests.

Afterwards enjoy the gorgeous outside setting to host your reception.

The choice of the model’s dress, flowers and decor, gives a decidedly bohemian vibe and is the perfect compliment to the natural setting.

And that DRESS! Swoon!
