Classic Bride in a Secret Garden
My gowns tend to attract the non-traditional bride, but every now and then I meet a bride that wants that classic feel, but maybe in a more whimsical way. This couple at White Raven Manor featured in Magnolia Rouge perfectly depicts how even a classic bridal gown can have a whimsical and ethereal twist. There's something about weddings that just makes me feel like they belong in nature. I don't know if it's the way the movement of vines mimic the cascading effect of a veil, or the delicate petals of a rose imitating the softness of eyelashes, cheekbones, and lips, in this case enhanced by Created by Shelby but it is something extraordinary. Honeysuckle and Wine beautifully captured exactly what I try to depict in my work - a world where bridal design and nature collide. The florals by Pampas and Floral have that secret garden feminine feel that make me melt! The blush and ivory blend along with tendrils of fern-like foliage are a beautiful contrast. Keeping the mood classic with roses, but those other elements truly add a whimsical and wild touch! This star of this dreamy moment is our Vintage Vine Veil. Edged in ivory beaded vine embroidery, this is the ultimate romantic, classic veil to complete any bridal look. The delicate edging doesn't overwhelm, it's just the right touch and creates a stunning cascade. The Anais gown is my take on the "traditional" bridal gown. Created with layers of pearl silk, delicate lace, and French embroidered tulle, this gown is dreamy as ever and has the most beautiful movement. The sheer, strapless bodice is hand beaded with organza flowers which continues on to the luscious a-line skirt with a delicate scalloped hem. Perfect for the bride that loves intricate details!
