A Modern, Country Style Shoot

Carri Fras |  September 12, 2017

Karla Neu of True Color Photography wanted to collaborate with her friend, Kelsey Hann, and her new rental company, Simply Elegant Events. Together, they dreamt up a modern, country styled shoot at Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn, desiring to add a new twist to a classic style. “Kelsey really took it from there with her expertise in wedding design. She rents out the most amazing farm tables, so we thought those would work perfectly!" Karla says. "From the soft floral designs layered with geometric candleholders, vintage goblets, succulents and a modern menu, everything went together in such a lush way!”

There’s nothing quite like the atmosphere of a wedding. Whether you are someone who is focused solely on the celebration or zeros in on all the details that make the ceremony and reception uniquely the couple’s, being able to partake in something that truly represents two individuals beginning their life together is something that can’t go unnoticed. It is, after all, an important aspect of the day!
