Secret Garden Inspired Bridal Portraits at Cairnwood Estate | Part Two of Styled Shoots Across America

My second shoot from Styled Shoots Across America was absolutely enchanting. The Secret Garden inspired Bridal Portraits at the Cairnwood Estate, in Bryn Athyn, PA, truly made you feel as though you stumbled across a secret garden.  In the corner of the light green colored room was a huge display of greenery that made its way out to the center of the room giving way to a beautiful display. The floral arrangement and design by Cassandra Shah Flowers, was crafted in such a way that it gave the illusion of a magical tunnel leading you to a secret garden as you walked towards the corner of the room.  

In addition to the jaw dropping floral display, the wedding bouquets were just as beautiful. I loved the variety of flowers that added a bit of texture, while the different flower hues tied everything together. A pink vintage couch in another corner of the room was also decorated to look as if it were a deserted sitting area in the middle of an enchanted garden. 

Secret Garden Inspired Bridal Portraits

The stunning Bride wore the most perfect fairytale, garden wedding dress from Styled Gowns. The dress featured intricate green vines and white flower detail on the top portion of the dress. The lovely detail slowly faded as it gave way to the tulle train that flowed out around her. Even the bride’s earrings from Elizabeth Bower Official tied into the garden theme with large flower diamonds and smaller diamond leaves and flowers dangling by her neck.  The entire creative team worked together to create a stunning garden inspired set for the bridal portraits that was breathtaking! The theme was perfectly woven into every aspect. 

If you are currently planning your wedding, I hope these gorgeous images spark inspiration and help you design your dream wedding day!
