Bridal fashion is an awesome beast.  As our eyes are only directed to the bridal world for a very short period of time {from our engagement to our wedding} in our lives, we don’t often see the evolution of style within bridal as seamlessly as we do with day to day wear.  Believe it or not, crafting the complete wedding day look these days is perhaps one of the more powerful forms of expression out there.  There are such a wonderfully delicious range of accessories to compliment the vast selection of gowns these days, everything to allow you to take on the perfect persona that you are aiming for.  Today’s styled bridal shoot is an absolutely wonderful example of how one gown can flawlessly become three unique personas, all equally feminine & powerful.  There is the softer, floral, more bohemian side complete with stunning crown made of choice blooms.  Next up is the gal that wants to honor tradition yet craves a more sophisticated fashion forward touch in the form of a veil come bridal headscarf.  The third and final look is that of refinement & class with all the modern touches of current fashion with the slightest nod to old school Mad Men fashion luxury.  Fashion is a tremendous expression of oneself and your wedding day should be no exception to this, in fact it should be the perfect highlight to all you love!


A Word From Damaris Mia at Le Magnifique about the shoot …

“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 Collectivedid 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!”
