Late this Spring, before the flurry of Wedding Season began, I had the opportunity to work with some of my favorite vendors in the business to create a lovely styled shoot. I asked three of my amazing real brides, Elizabeth, Courtney and Rachel, to showcase stunning original gowns provided by Elizabeth Lee Bridal Boutique. I’ve gotten to know Wendy, the owner of Elizabeth lee Bridal Boutique, a bit over the past few months. She’s warm and kind and thrives on helping each Bride find the perfect, unique dress, just for her. I’m so grateful to have such incredible friends in this business!
Walters Wedding Estates so graciously allowed us to work at The Milestone Mansion and Morgan Creek Barn, in Aubrey, Tx. These venues provide the perfect backdrop, every. single. time. And the staff there is amazing (North Texas Brides, I highly recommend these venues!!). I recruited friend and frequently partner in crime, Ana Rodriquez, of Inspired by:, to design florals and table decor. Other talents, Ros B Beauty, Hair by RylliAnn, Curious Type. Co, Moonlight Cakes and Chad Ham Designs all contributed greatly. A full list of vendors is below.
Rain came that day, so we primarily shot indoors. And… I took so many pictures, I’ve got to blog this in multiple posts. 🙂 Oops! lol!
Let’s start with some of Elizabeth, wearing the Ardi Lee gown.
Yup, I got in the frame. It happens once in awhile;). L to R: Ana, Elizabeth, Me, Chantel
Elizabeth, I hope this is just the start of a great many shoots together. You were perfect, as usual.
