Working with the traditional East Coast venue, the ANDERSON HOUSE in Washington, DC, North Carolina wedding photographer LINDLEY BATTLE and the creative team but wanted to take an artistic and unique approach to the venue that frequently hosts traditional East Coast weddings.

LIndley tells us, "Using minimal but intentional florals by SWEET ROOT VILLAGE, a gorgeous bridal suit from Australian designer KAREN WILLIS HOLMES, and a real couple that got married during quarantine (but never got to have a proper wedding) as our models, we created this shoot. In keeping a minimal but authentic focus on design, architecture, and genuine emotions, we didn't use a planner or stylist for this shoot but instead drew from the existing elements for simple but poignant photos.

The inspiration was drawn from the novel of The Great Gatsby, creating the feel of an opulent and carefree party in a breathtaking manor house, but our hope with the impeccably designed suit was that the bride would take the role of the Gatsby inspiration."
