A beautiful old country church, a claw foot tub with bubbly, giant “magic” flowers, an elegant harp, blue pumpkins, a pumpkin spice latte bar, and a fairytale princess come to life – these are just a few of the elements in this beautiful styled shoot. Romance was everywhere in this enchanted photoshoot.
The Hartman Venue is a converted church originally built in 1863 set in the country. It now operates as a venue and bed and breakfast and so many interesting and unique elements; I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for a whimsical, enchanted pumpkin wedding editorial.
I chose a couple who look like a real-life fairy tale princess and her Prince Charming, so they were absolutely perfect for this theme. The fairytale wedding dress, crown and crystal shoes worn by the bride tied in perfectly.
The venue was decorated in blue and white flowers and berries, with accents of white, “blue doll” and teal pumpkins, as well as giant “magic” flowers in off-white, pink and blue. The wrought-iron circular staircase and chandelier were also decorated in vines, flowers and berries.
The couple recently celebrated their 3-year wedding anniversary, and were thrilled to have this second wedding and vow renewal. They shared their vows from special pink and blue velvet vow folders in front of a backdrop of giant flowers and candles, and an aisle lined with pumpkins.
A harpist provided the beautiful and whimsical background music on her gorgeous and ornate harp. She even gave the couple a few lessons.
Another special element of this photo shoot was the pumpkin spice latte bar provided by a local café – the perfect touch to a fall-themed pumpkin wedding for coffee-lovers.
