Being a photographer and a wedding blogger, seeing any type of styled shoot made my heart happy. To actually coordinate a styled shoot? That made my heart even more happier. Since the launch of my wedding blog, Le Magnifique, I've had this urge to coordinate a styled shoot. So after many months of planning and brainstorming, I put together a talented team of wedding professionals to help bring my vision to life. I wanted to create something soft, romantic, pretty, and sweet. Something that featured soft colors and lots lace.
The wedding gown was a Kitty Chen Couture gown (style: Ruby) from Mary Me Bridal in Orange and it was just breathtaking. If you love lace, you'll love this gown. Delicate embellishments covered the gown from top to bottom. The gown even had a detachable bolero that featured buttons in the back that gave the gown such an elegant look. The girls over at Mary Me Bridal are just the sweetest! The veils were created by the very talented Kathy Banner of Veiled Beauty who after seeing my inspiration board for the shoot decided to create brand new veils that would reflect the vision I had in mind for the shoot. The veils alone made me want to have another wedding for myself! Nicole at Bella Bloom Floral Design created such a beautiful and romantic bouquet and floral headpiece. Nicole always does such a beautiful job with floral design! Jen Simpson from Jen Simpson Design created such sweet invitations. Nina from The Rico Collective did a phenomenal job with hair & make-up. Better than I could have imagined! Alycia and her mom, Mychele, from Timeless Love Events brought the most amazing settee I ever did see! And the chandeliers? They brought those too! They actually made the chandelier with the cage and lace for the shoot! And the jewelry? Swoon. They brought those too. Last but not least, Valentina of Valentina Glidden Photography did an amazing job photographing this entire shoot. Valentina is always such a pleasure to work with! The shoot turned out better than I had imagined and am so grateful to have worked with such talented people!
