Morning anticipation is one of our favorite parts of a wedding day—it lives in the hours before “I do”, where brides and grooms reflect on everything past and all that is yet to come. There’s a special kind of magic in the occasions where one life gives way to a whole new future, and it makes for some of the more beautifully contemplative moments. Drawing inspiration from these quiet reflections, Taylor Dawn Design envisioned a bride in the peace before her nuptials, and Rustic White Photography captured the vision beautifully!
From Stylist & Planner Taylor Doehrman of Taylor Dawn Design:
“Early in the morning, before our stunning bride meets her groom, she longs to steal a few moments to herself to sit in the stillness before her most anticipated day begins. Up on a mountaintop, she is reminded that she is free. She is waiting and yearning for her beloved, but in this moment, she is completely content with herself.
In her stunning white gown, she twirls and sits and ponders and finally lies down, enjoying every second, truly feeling desired and elegant. Her groom waits. She is beautiful and breathtaking. Her hair courses gently in the breeze as she lets it move across her face, breathing in the fresh mountain air. Complete with her bouquet, mimicking the warmness of the sunrise, our bride is ready. She dons a stunning, simple headpiece of the most delicate gold flowers as she moves along with the wind on the mountaintop. She gazes as the scene below her, knowing that for the rest of her day, she will cherish these moments. Now, she is ready to meet her groom.”
