The Secret Garden by Olivia Carson

"And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles."                         ~ Frances Hodgson Burnett ~

This Secret Garden editorial by Olivia Carson, has evoked so many emotions in us. We feel mystery, longing, love and passion. The soft light takes us to another time and place while this beautiful couple allows us to believe in real love. Art that evokes emotion is true art, talent that captures it is immeasurable. You astound us Olivia!

From photographer Olivia Bidleman: Our vision for this editorial gathered some of the most talented vendors from the Seattle wedding market to create a dreamy scene of love and affection amongst a tangled, forgotten, overgrown garden. We were striving for a fine art vibe infused with emotion, golden light, and just a touch of whimsy. An ethereal gown by Rue de Seine, a clean, flawless bridal beauty look by Yessie Libby, and wild florals by Gather Design Company are just a sampling of the talent included within this series. Calling back the nostalgic imagery evoked through the children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, our take on The Secret Garden is one of deep romance and thoughtful, organic details.
