Every bride-to-be has her own idea of what constitutes the perfect wedding ceremony: Some prefer simple, easy, Town Hall transactions, while others dream of over-the-top, theatrical weddings (like this “Little Mermaid”-themed one).

If mermaids aren’t your cup of tea, though, there are other options. Perhaps you’d like photographer Jessica Zais’ wedding shoot inspired by L.M. Montgomery’s classic novel “Anne of Green Gables.”

It’s basically every bibliophile’s dream come true, but the beautiful details make it fit for any romantic bride.

With the help of Stage Right Etc., Zais and her crew recreated classic scenes from the book in a picturesque corner of Kelowna, British Columbia.

This is something you have to see to fully appreciate, so check out these stills from the shoot below and prepare to swoon.

Bailey Woodward and Yanni Papadopoulos as Anne and Gilbert.

Handpainted signs served as decor.

Books also served as decor, to symbolize Anne’s love for literature.

Mini carrot cakes were made by Sweet On You designer cakes.

Of course, there was a nod to the book’s famous raspberry cordial scene.

Fun Fact: The models are real-life lovers, too.

The pond and rowboat were “must haves” for the shoot, according to Zais.

This sign is a reference to Anne’s charming name for Barry’s Pond.

And this one’s a reference to the tunnel of flowers Gilbert brings Anne in the book.

Zais refers to this as “a twist on the Lady of Shalott scene,” her favorite.
