Sumptuous Gardens and Luxe Gowns


Vale + Vine is wrapping up the week with a sumptuous spring garden shoot by Melissa Gidney Photography featuring luxe gowns and accessories in a stately outdoor setting.  With several outdoor looks to choose from, these slim, elegant gowns work well in a garden setting, offering ease of movement that a ballgown-style skirt would not, however, their ornate trimmings reinforce their identity as anything but simple sheaths.  From bohemian pomp to classical elegance, these highly stylized looks are heightened by the verdant beauty that surrounds them--a perfect pairing.  If you're looking for more shoots featuring gardens and gowns, this shoot in amidst a garden of ruins, or this Vancouver Island garden inspiration published on Vale + Vine would be ideal follow-ups to this feature.  Don't forget to follow Vale + Vine on Instagram and Facebook for the latest news and favourite images!
