this shoot took place in a lush hydrangea garden here in seattle, washington. i am so in love with this styled bridal session! i get mad flower-fairy vibes from it all. i would absolutely get married in a garden and wear this flower crown on my wedding day. :) arden has gorgeous dark red locks and bright blue eyes (doesn't she remind you of amy adams?) a beautiful and unique mint green lace dress from free people. my favorite from the entire shoot are the first two images, i love the primary colors! also, can we talk about her whimsical flower crown?! courtney combined blue bells, succulents and a variety of wildflowers and eucalyptus greens to achieve this trendy headpiece and bouquet.
