A simple forest wedding reminder

Posted by

Amidst all the geeking out over wedding porn of details and decor, I think it's always good to remember the beauty and magic of a simple, heartfelt wedding. Behold:
forest wedding

I know we feature a lot of weddings full of fabulous design and ideas and art and fashion and music and magic. And while the details can be fun for some of us some of the time, I love photos that remind us all that when it comes right down to it, really all you're going for is this moment:

Finally!
Because in that moment, it doesn't matter what the color scheme was or which shoes you bought or how clever your invitation wording was or how well-thought-out your reception playlist was or how coordinated your bridesmaids' fascinators were. All that matters is that it's you and your partner, celebrating this thing that you've created — this love that you've found together and are committing to share with each other.

That's all that matters.

  1. I am 16 days away from my big day and it is so easy to get stressed out over all the little details. This is EXACTLY what I needed to see today and will be going back to it again and again in the next 2 weeks. ♥ it!!!

  2. Love it! My fiancé and I are having our wedding shindig in a simple stone amphitheater in the forest, on top of a mountain, no added flowers or ornamentation (and consequently no added stress). Nothing is better than being surrounded by the simple beauty of nature and your loved ones!

  3. Our wedding took place at a beautiful cabin in the Mt. Hood wilderness…We left with rain following us all the way there the day before the wedding and as soon as we stepped on soil on the cabin grounds the sun said hello and stayed for the big event and for 5 days thereafter…our honeymoon spent backpacking the Mt. Hood forests…it was magical.
    Thank you Ariel!!! You inspired much of our day! All handmade by me and loved ones…sigh.

    The day we headed home and back to reality…it started raining. I love our soggy, mossy and green home! And thank you Ariel!!
