In this series, we’re looking into the unique details around the farm and how your celebration will be special with the Must Have Photos at Heritage Prairie Farm.

In part three of our series, it’s time to take a look at one of the most photographed details… the dress!

The “dress shot” is a great way to show off your personality, and Heritage Prairie Farm has so many fantastic places to get that perfect photo. Whether your aesthetic is farmhouse-chic, bohemian, romantic, or more classic, the beautiful spaces at the farm will bring out all of those details.

Photos of your wedding dress can be a number of things. They can be detail or accessory shots, getting ready, bridal portraits, or action photos. There are lots of pretty places around the farm to hang up the dress itself for those glamorous detail photos, but equally as important are the moments while getting dressed in the bridal suite or the bridal portraits.

The herb garden, orchard, bridal suite, barn, and the greenhouse are all fantastic examples of spaces that are great for your dress shot.

Take a look at some of our favorite photos from around the farm featuring the wedding dress:
