A Place in My Heart: An Earthy Spring Wedding Shoot at an Enchanting Oak Forest
Photos By Katie Ricard
By Lauren Kathryn on Mar 2, 2016 at 4:00 am in
The work of Wisconsin-based wedding photographer Katie Ricard, this beautifully vernal shoot bloomed out of a quote by American author Robert Jordan on the transformative, life-giving power of love: “You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones.”
Katie drew inspiration from the earthy colors of early spring, mixing deep, dusky hues with some of the lighthearted pastels that traditionally typify the season. She also played off the magic of the setting: Los Osos Oaks State Natural Reserve, which protects a moss-draped pocket of gnarled, centuries-old oaks near San Luis Obispo, California.
