When Valentine’s day is right around the corner and you’ve got a great team of vendors and a red-headed model on board, you get a beautiful, romantic inspired styled bridal shoot. The idea behind the shoot was to show off the many ways to put together a bridal look.
In all, there were five different look, each one just as beautiful as the next and accessorized perfectly. With each look, there was a new hairstyle and new jewelry to go along with it that complimented the dress.
The backdrop for the shoot was the salon that provided the beauty services for the bride. The space is often used as a getting ready space on wedding day and we can see why. The natural light, airy feeling, exposed brick wall and perfect outdoor spots made it a dreamy location to shoot at.
With each look, the bride carried the same lush bouquet made up of hydrangeas, roses and peonies. When choosing the color, the bride’s hair and skin tones were considered and the soft colors and neutral colors were the perfect choice.
“Our model had gorgeous red hair, so we also chose blush pinks and light corals that were complimentary to her hair and skin tone,” explained the shoot’s photographer, Victoria Grace Photography. “Our local florist was able to see a picture of our bride beforehand and was able to pick flowers and colors that made both the bride and the flowers look incredible.”
The first look was a thin strap, low V-neck, A-line gown. The bodice was a white flower print over a nude color and had a full train. It was paired with a dainty gold chain necklace that had a few dark stones trailing off. Her hair was half down and curled with a braid pulling the other half of it back. It definitely had more of a modern feel to it, with a romantic touch.
Next, the bride slipped into a lace gown with illusion straps. The cream lace was over top of a tan color slip, giving the dress a little bit of a unique color. The back dipped down low and had button accenting along the backside. The bride switched up the jewelry to another dainty gold chain, more of a choker style, with small clear stones all the way around. The clear stones matched the oversized hanging diamond shaped stone earrings. A pearl embellished veil was added to the bride’s hair and gave us some major vintage vibes.
Then, there was an off the shoulder flutter sleeve white lace gown paired with a loosely curled low do and we can’t help but think of a Medieval princess with this look. Maybe it was the pearl embellished gold wire headpiece or the pointy stones on the necklace, but we are loving it!
The next look was a little more traditional with a fitted lace dress. The show stopper on this dress was the open back and flower lace pattern. A rhinestone hair piece was added to a low do and gave it a whole new look.
Last but not least was the favorite and featured dress of the shoot.
“The featured dress was a vintage one-of-a-kind designer gown, that had a boho style and was perfectly paired with her hair and makeup,” said Victoria. “We chose a messy braid and baby’s breath for her hair and most of the photos were taken outdoors.”
Between the shot with the veil blowing in the wind against the red brick wall and the white wooden door and the shot on the stone steps with the oversized barn wood doors and the last shot with the cute little green and yellow colored door and windows we can’t decide which is our favorite.
Meanwhile, inside there was a spread of food waiting for the bride when she returned inside. A local neighborhood Italian restaurant provided a few different charcuterie boards to choose from. This shoot was all about options, after all!
