One of my favorite pieces to weddings is the gobsmackingly beautiful bridal fashion. From modern to classic to gorgeously glam bridal style, there are so many brilliant ways to go! Philippine wedding photographer Jessie Villegas of Capturing Smiles Photography recently teamed up with a few other amazing local vendors to craft 4 wonderfully romantic glam bridal looks that show, with just the right touches, how utterly stunning and perfectly glam one can become! Whether is loosely curled flowing locks or hair that is sleeked back with a bold lip and smoldering eye by the beauty team of Len-Len Anaya and Kevin Abdala, each look has its own personality! While beauty is every bit the show stopper, let's be honest, its the gowns that command the glam bridal style! Each dress, whether lace applique or flowing tulle, came from FIONA CLARA by Alma Mae Roa, offering up a delicious buffet for the eyes to work with! While we play no favorites, there is certainly no shortage of glam bridal style to inspire today!

I've got a bit of a girl crush today, more specifically a serious hair crush going on! Vintage bride inspiration can take on many gorgeous forms, often allowing literary characters to carry out hearts away. One such vintage romantic is Anne of Green Gables, with her Victorian sensibilities and appealing yesteryear fashion. Philippines wedding photographer Capturing Smiles Photographer recently teamed up with stylist Lifecrafts and Pixie Dust to breathe life back into this old tale, re-imagined for a modern vintage bride. The fashion is perhaps the most notable part to their inspiration shoot, with a high neckline wedding dress featuring elbow length sleeves and signature ruffle flourishes. What transports this vintage bride into the modern arena is the beautiful makeup and otherworldly hair of model Gellie Valmoria. Whether is wild and free or loosely held back in lazy braids, I think you'll understand my girl crush in no time! The beauty to the modern vintage bride is the ability to take elements from the past that inspire us, fusing them with modern feel & styling. Its one thing to be vintage, its a wholly other to perfectly blend the eras!

The beautiful thing about putting together a styled shoot is that the world is literally your oyster. Dream it up and execute, that is all that is required to make a bit of magic. Such is the case of the skillful crew of Virginia wedding vendors that came together to craft not one but two dreamy wedding looks, showcasing gorgeous inspiration for a unique plantation wedding. Set at the Historic Berkeley Plantation along the James River, the lush background of perfectly trimmed hedges & pebble lined red brick mansion served as the perfect jump off point for the team. A sweets table was erected with a chic botanical mother earth feel, from the texture whipped wedding cake topped with succulents to the garden rose accented garland of green. To inject two different perspectives into a plantation wedding, a duo of looks were crafted for the bride from a modern gone slightly boho feel to one of more fashion forward fashionista spirited bride...

In an effort to kick off the 2015 wedding season on a clean gorgeous slate, Utah wedding photographer We Are Roz teamed up with local vendors Swoon Vintage Rental Co., Jocelyn's Floral, and Julie Thomas Style to showcase the beauty of a stripped down yet completely chic bride with a perfectly clean and natural look. In an effort to simplify things, the crew drew inspiration from the organic charm that Eucalyptus. A simple set was erected with a few choice items and collection of earthy greens, showing that it isnt always quantity that has the most impact. The result is a uniquely sweet stripped down bridal session that allows a bride to be au natural all while being just as well styled and gorgeously chic.
