The soft colours of this beautiful mountain meadow bridal by MEGHAN ELISE are such a striking contrast with the black gown from ABBYBELLA COUTURE. The textured bouquet by PENELOPE POTS FLORAL DESIGN incorporated some pampas grass to reflect the breezy movement in the meadow.

Meghan tells us, “There is a beautiful meadow tucked away in the little mountain town that I live in – Idyllwild, CA. I've lived in Idyllwild almost my entire life and just discovered this location this past year. When I first saw it it gave me goosebumps, and ever since, I've been dreaming about a shoot here. We created a sweet little picnic area for two amidst the forest with an old abandoned stable as a backdrop. Inspired by traditional invitation suites we decided to create a sweet little “Proposal Suite” and, for an added touch of romance, wax sealed calligraphy love notes for “reasons why I love you.
