Created by Jack & Grace Events and Kristina Staal Photography, this uber romantic styled shoot at the beautiful Montgomery Pinetum in Greenwich, Connecticut is full of softness and tenderness. From the lovely palette of the softest blush to the lovely couple that is so obviously in love, to the delicate details, this wedding inspiration evokes an ethereal and serene quality we simply adore.

Wedding Inspiration, Greenwich, Elysian Bride

When I envisioned this styled shoot, I knew I wanted to combine an ethereal and whimsical feel with the gorgeous nature and ruins of Montgomery Pinetum in Greenwich, CT. Aoife and Lauren of Jack & Grace Events and I teamed up to bring this vision to life, along with so many other wonderful and talented vendors. All of us love the idea of community over competition, so we turned this shoot into a styled “shoot out” and invited other photographers to photograph this gorgeous couple as well! These images are purely mine, but the fun that we had connecting with all of the other photographers and vendors, was one of the best parts of the styled shoot. Alex & Karolina are a gorgeous couple, and Karolina has a beautiful gentleness and elegance to her, while Alex has a defined masculinity. Throughout the shoot, we caught glimpses of their sweet interactions and moments of love shared between them. Their love for one another shines through the images and made all of us smile and enjoy the shoot even more.

When putting together the shoot, we decided to go with a non-traditional dress because we wanted something a little different. We thought that blush would bring a certain romance to the images that a typical white dress can’t always bring, and we thought it would tie in perfectly with the ruins and florals as well. The wedding cake was absolutely stunning, and the florals added the finishing touches to the shoot.
