It’s taking place at the heart of harvest….

When Kristina & I got together to create an inspirational shoot, we knew we had to put something unique together to showcase our favorite season – autumn. With the focus on creating a narrative based inspirational feature, together with the vibrant colors and the abundance of harvest to play with, we wanted to tell a beautiful love story through our imagery that we could showcase to a creative bride.

We were imagining ourselves transported to Granada Spain, which boasts of splendid ornamental architecture, spectacular and lush gardens, cascading and dripping water features, rolling farmland and breathtaking views which is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful love story. But, we couldn’t go to Spain thus we brought Spain to us by incorporating the elements of this Mediterranean abode to create the love story of Bree & Joseph.

With simple country luxury as their focus and a farm to fork concept, surrounded by lush gardens and splendid ornamental architecture boasting throughout the property, a dripping water feature and breathtaking views, Park Winters was the perfect location to narrate our story. And this is the love story we like to tell.

A romantic proposition, a fiancé awaiting, a garden at the epicenter, a beautiful farm house infused with Mediterranean accents, this is the backdrop of true romance taking place at the heart of a bountiful harvest. 

Joseph, a farm boy in the heart of Spain who is engaged to be married to the love of his life Bree, is truly an impatient fella. They live in adjoining farms and he has decided to write a letter asking Bree to marry him in a whimsy in the gardens of her family’s estate. The young fella has written a letter to the love of his life anticipating her decision to whisk her away soon.


Bree, a damsel in love, playfully tries to determine whether she should take the leap at once.

With the abundance of fall around, infused with the vibrant colors, mixed with gold tones and wrought iron décor that brings out the Mediterranean vibe and included with the harvest from the farm, this beautiful romantic set up was created to tell a story from the beginning to the end.

She then finally decides that she will meet him at the garden, where he awaits.

An intimate celebration she prepares, which sets the mood for the entire day.



A banquet she prepares for the festivities.

It’s oh so romantic and she didn’t just stop with a tablescape. The perfect bar for two is what she decides she wants to have as well

She has to change to meet the love of her life. And we have all the details for you


From the playful attire to more of a formal Lillian west dress form Always Elegant Bridal she changed into, to meet the love of her life at the steps of the garden.

She is so relaxed in this beautiful lounge made for the couple in love!

Who says candle stands are only for candles?

With so much love in the air the cake encapsulated the abundance of fall

And she didn’t stop there. What is a celebration without Macaroons?

And here she waited at the steps of the garden…


And he whisks her away…..

The whole story is narrated though the eyes of Bree…

Hope you loved it as much as I did….

Till Next time
