Boho Inspired Wedding

Cattleya Chapel

A boho-inspired muted-toned whimsical wedding at Cattleya Chapel in Vero Beach.

This amazing inspirational wedding shoot was put together by a great team of vendors. I have been wanting to photograph a wedding at Cattleya Chapel for such a long time, and when the stylist, Kathy Peterson, invited me, there was no way I could say no.

Cattleya Chapel is such a charming outdoor space because it is bright, open, and whimsical but still has a rustic, relaxed feel. And if you love macrame, earth tones, and all things boho, then this is the perfect wedding inspiration for you! You can read all about it on my featured venue highlight page!
