Exclusive ENGAGED! River Valley Inspiration Shoot – Romance & Candlelight – Full Online Gallery

If you are looking to capture a day oozing with romance then this is your inspiration shoot. Shot by Sharin Shank Photography in the gorgeously quaint town of New Harmony, conveniently located just 20 minutes from Evansville, the historic atmosphere and charm are unsurpassed in the region. With picturesque gardens, beautiful old buildings and hidden vistas just waiting to be stumbled upon, New Harmony offers so much, so close.

While New Harmony offers several amazing venues, we chose the hidden gem that is Thrall’s Opera House for our romantic inspiration shoot. A smaller venue, it allows clients areas to set for both indoor and outdoor options.

Events of Harmony knocked it out of the park with their take on romantic, candlelit decor. This is everything that is classic and beautiful. And our models could not have looked better! Outfitted by the team at Beth Carter Bridal, the dress and menswear were perfect for a classic gorgeous look.

The cake by our sweet friend Darla Smith of Daily’s Annex Bakery complimented the color palette and feel of the decor perfectly. We are loving the unexpected texture and fruit on the tiers!

One of our favorite details is the stationery and custom designed map by Bobbi Hammonds of 5 Pink Peonies. For those wanting a weekend getaway experience for their guests, offering a custom map of the area near the wedding is the way to go. We especially love the hand-painted local buildings shown on the various streets.
