This styled bridal shoot was so much fun to play with! There were several vignettes set up including a boudoir shoot, two separate bridal shoots, detailed shots with cool silvers and blue undertones, a cocktail area with warm rose gold accents and one with champagne and dark berries and metals and lush greenery,
The rainy day Chicago brought us gave our incredible photographer the most gorgeous cloudy day. The natural light through those huge windows is seriously too pretty for words! The florals we played with were the most exquisite, butterfly and Japanese ranunculus, Spring’s finest hellebores, billowy garden roses, arching sweet peas, breathtaking double tulips, and winding vine. Our vintage vessels were the perfect touch to the space!
How incredible is the detailing on the back of Willow’s wedding gown? It’s the most perfect ethereal dream! This gorgeous shoot was featured in Glam and Grace and its sister shoot was selected for print by Dear Gray Magazine! We’re on Page 110-115!
This whole shoot was curated by our amazing photographer, Tiffaney Childs, and the team even got lucky enough to borrow two antique and absolutely unique wedding rings for this shoot. Not only did they provide inspiration, but they accented all of the details so stunningly. It certainly gets you thinking about what wedding ring you would like when it’s your turn. That’s why I am glad there are websites like https://gemaandco.com/collections/wedding-bands to have a good browse on for more inspiration. You can’t have too much!
From Tiffaney Childs
“This Parisian inspired shoot came together with the help of such an amazing team of creatives that could share my vision of delicate lace, daintily scripted love letters on handmade paper, and a light drenched loft filled with luscious florals. Often, I escape the hustle and bustle of daily life with a cup of tea and my dreams of travel. I have longed to visit Paris and see all of the dreamy sights, intricate architecture, and cobbled streets. Paris has this romantic, elegant allure to it. I wanted to create a feminine boudoir session where a bride could just imagine herself looking out of the window over Rue Saint Dominique, with the sweeping views of the bakeries on the street and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.”
