A simple Autumn inspired elopement styled shoot at See Canyon Fruit Ranch, a wedding venue nestled between the hills of San Luis Obispo and Avila Beach, was complete with a classy tea party, beautiful views of trees and an apple orchard, along with a brilliant fall color palette. This fun shoot was coordinated by Charlotte Covington, had amazing florals by Thistles and Thorn Floristry, and was photographed by Kristin Raynor Photography.
Can you describe your vision for this shoot?
From the photographer, Kristin Raynor: "We wanted to style an elopement that incorporated beautiful autumn vibes, a unique and private couple, and perfect scenery. The ladies at Cup & Carriage and Charlotte Covington Events did an amazing job of bringing Fall feels and colors into our story. The Bride and Bridesmaid, are true best friends. They, plus the handsome groom are all they needed for their special day. Surrounded by an apple orchard, green lawns, vintage furniture and gorgeous florals, this is the perfect inspiration for any unique couple looking to celebrate their forever true love and simply enjoy each others company and revel in the start of their forever."
As one who contributed to the design what was your inspiration?
I am constantly inspired by the outdoors and natural settings. I love colors, and the garden and orchard inspired me very much.
Describe 1 or 2 details that you were the most excited about.
I was most excited about the Bridal Tea party the girls had before the ceremony. The tea party was complete with wonderful tea and pastries. The BHLDN gown was also perfect for her and just gorgeous.
