Emily Dickinson "To Make a Prairie" Inspired Styled Shoot

June 29, 2018


This dreamy styled elopement was inspired by Emily Dickenson’s Poem “To Make a Prarie ” which speaks sweetly about honeybees. They wanted everything from the calligraphy to the table scape to instantly remind people of bees and honey. We love the rich color palate they’ve chosen for the shoot, and the ways the rich honey color compliments the pale pink ranunculus, simple golds, and creamy linens. 


Every detail is so perfectly intentional, and captures the nostalgic feeling of the praries. We can’t get over this authentic 1970’s prairie style gown and the intricate lace detailing, in contrast with brides simple, classic makeup and relaxed up-do, and the way so many pieces looks like something right out of a gorgeous history book. They took such a vintage look, elevated it, and brought it into this century in the most romantic and classic way. 


Their gorgeous venue is the sweetest for elopements or intimate style weddings, and is an absolute dream for the bride who loves vintage details. Add in the gorgeous draping tablescape, the use of cascading florals, and a cake complete with real pieces of honeycomb, and we could not be more in love with this look. We can’t wait to see more from this talented group of vendors and creatives!
