Vintage charm meets whimsy romance in this wedding inspiration dreamed up by KSS Photography. It all started with a vintage Beetle named Sally, which sparked the idea for this autumn on the farm styled shoot. Kiamarie Stone was inspired by wedding details you don’t commonly see (like a vintage send-off car) and paired that idea with whimsical romance. The end result? Beautifully curated details upon details that we not only can’t get enough of, but inspiring ideas that you can tailor for your upcoming wedding. If you love pretty pastels with an aesthetic that evokes the beauty of nature, this editorial brought to life by a very talented team of vendors will be right down your wedding aisle.

It goes without saying choosing the right location is important for setting the tone for any event. The Inn at Fernbrook Farms created a picturesque ambiance across its 230 acres of beautifully manicured grounds and hidden gems to capture portraits.
The elegant BHLDN and Hayley Paige gowns were perfect to carry out a traditional style, while the YSA Makino gown turned out to be a showstopper silhouette with off-the-shoulder cap sleeves, intricate beading, and a detachable tiered skirt in sherbet tones. The guys might have worn all black bow ties, but each sported a different look. From a classic all-black suit to a contemporary white jacket with black trim, and even a checkered jacket for a modern twist, the menswear was everything but boring.
Botaniq Blooms blended seasonal, locally grown flowers with classic roses for a lush, pastel bouquet. The bouquets incorporated organic garden roses from Grace Rose Farm in California, seasonal pampas grass and cream solidago, delphinium in shades of blue, tweedia, eucalyptus, and foxglove grown on BB Flower Fields—the floral designers’ farm.
Take décor to the next level by choosing one or two striking details to become a focal point. Display a calligraphy scroll—like this one lettered by Lace and Belle—on a vintage rental piece, create a cozy atmosphere with lounge furniture, end tables, lanterns, signage, or have your vows written on acrylic, which you can display in your home after the wedding.
Naturally, portraits wouldn’t be complete without some adorable farm animals to steal the show. Chickens, goats, cows, and even a bunny brought out the playful side of the models and made for some super adorable photos.
