Bridal Portraits

The Retro Bride With Romantic Infusion & Flirty Attitude

Retro… is ALWAYS in style.  No matter the decade, no matter what is going on in the world of fashion & design, retro will always be a gorgeous option.  To go retro is to honor the fabulous designs & styles that came before us, to envelope yourself into another era.   This bridal session from Nicole Ryan Photography  hits that nail beautifully on the head.  Bride, Cailin McElrath, along with Nicole headed to the wonderfully dilapidated chic Lustre Pearl  for her retro infused session.  Donning a smart pale aqua lace dress, a mix of cowboy boots & heels, topped off with a bold red lip and the perfect pill box hat, the transformation was complete.  While I will always be a heels girl, I must say, I utterly adore the look when styled with the cowboy boots, there is something about that mix that is harmonious perfection to me!  The beauty to Cailin’s look is its versatility, divine for a bride or for your bridesmaids.  The pill box hat is however the pièce de résistance of the look and with fascinators as front and center as they are these days, it simply proves good fashion is always in.
