Since only 2% of the population are redheads, that makes us basically unicorns. Just of course had to mention something about ginger love since I am a ginger too and this shoot features a gorgeous redhead. Aislinn Bailey and her team dreamt up a love story that inspired this charming Jekyll Island elopement inspiration shoot at Horton House. For the shoot the model wore our long sleeve lace bohemian wedding dress by Ti Adora paired with our all-over lace Adele Amelia veil. To see more of this romantic shoot head over to Dear Gray Magazine or scroll down! 

I absolutely love the love story these talented ladies made that inspired the shoot and so just had to share. The shoot featured calligraphy by Darling Devotion that helped to tell the story. 

"She woke before the dawn, the wind whispering promises in her ear. As she gathered her things to begin the day, a letter dropped from her dressing table. "Meet me where our eyes first met." Upon arriving at the shell of a home that had been a part of her family's story for generations, she noticed a gown staring back at her on the far wall. Next to it, a map, a book, and a bouquet of fresh flowers.

As the morning light began to break, she followed the map that was left by her beloved to four books hidden in plain sight, waiting--for their pursuant--to be read. It was him, alas, professing his love for her through lyric. The books, when placed next to one another, created a poem that would reveal where he was awaiting her: "You are the moon dear one, and I the sea."

The sand was cool beneath her feet and the wind gentle as it lifted the folds of lace and fabric of her dress into the breeze. He was there, waiting for her, waiting to begin their lives together."

When looking at these pictures I couldn't help but be so intrigued by what this Horton House is... so of course had to do some research so I could share some background -- the building is one of the oldest standing tabby structure exteriors in Georgia. The building was a warehouse that Horton, one of General James Oglethorpe's military aids, built to help produce crops and supplies for troops. On the site there are ruins of Georgia's first brewery, cemeteries and more. The spooky ruins featured beautiful walls and made such a stunning backdrop to this dreamy story, don't you think?

But seriously, how gorgeous are those curls in the sun? Their fiery glow is mesmerizing. 

I love the ancient map they had for the shoot - so positively beautiful!! 

I have a long love affair with all-over lace veils. I just think they are the most beautiful veils around and this veil by Adele Amelia is no exception. It's such a statement jaw-dropping accessory for any bridal look. I also loved the florals by Cotton Social. The bold colors create such a nice contrast against the neutrals of the Horton House and the champagne color of the Ti Adora dress.
