Into the Woods: An Elegantly Earthy Shoot at an Illinois Forest Preserve

Momoko Photography and Foraged Floral explore a greener side of the Chicago area in this earthily ethereal wedding shoot, set at a tranquil forest preserve just outside of the city.
“Oftentimes, when people think of Chicago, they think of urban lofts and city views,” says Tiffany Siladke, Foraged Floral’s flower whisperer. “For this editorial shoot, which focuses on the finespun bridal frocks of Grace Lee-Lim, we decided to travel to a forest preserve in Libertyville, a northern suburb with a decidedly small-town feel.”
The woodland setting offered a softer, more natural backdrop that beautifully complemented the delicate, diaphanous quality of Lee-Lim’s gossamery gowns and Foraged Floral’s fresh, airy designs, filled with crisp white blooms and gauzy greenery. A neutral palette reflected the surrounding colors, with subtle hints of muted gold for a glimmer of old-world glam.
