Ladies! If you are in the midst of wedding planning and are looking for some inspiration for your bridesmaids then you are going to love today’s shoot. Put together by wedding planner and coordinator, Gillian of Willow Weddings, and featuring beautiful jewel toned bridesmaid dresses from BHLDN, the concept of the shoot was to focus on the bridesmaids and their time spent with the bride on the morning of her wedding…..
We all love inspiration that features an incredible couple, but lets not forget about the girl squad who supported the Bride through their friendship, her meeting the love of her life, planning a wedding, and everything in between! These are the ladies who stand up next to the bride on her big day.
I love this concept. The morning of my wedding when I was surrounded by my wonderful sisters and best of friends was so special to me. We laughed, we danced, we sang, we drank champagne (standard) and we cried. I loved every single moment and that time with them will always stay with me. Putting together a shoot that captures all of this is a great idea and should be done more often!
Look out for the gorgeous velvet Kimonos by Wayfarer Bride. They would make such a lovely gift for your bridesmaids to wear on the morning of your wedding.
Gillian talks us through the shoot and all the fab suppliers involved. Enjoy….
Velvet Kimonos, Jewel Toned Gowns and Vibrant Florals…..
I teamed up with Angela Boswell of Wayfarer Bride to style the Bride and her ‘maids getting ready for the day. We wanted to show the popular getting ready robes in alternative lush velvet kimonos while enjoying an intimate brunch catered by Gracious Thyme NYC. Captured by Wilde Scout Photography Co, the ladies get ready at home and share in the excitement this day is finally here!
Out of kimonos and into BHLDN gowns designed by Jenny Yoo, Watters, and Donna Morgan, their transformation is complete. Our bridesmaids don jewel-toned gowns that compliment the vibrant florals designed by Darlington Flowers. The Bride wears Rebecca Schoneveld’s stunning “Yves” gown paired with a handmade sparkling dried gypso crown and cathedral length mantilla veil by Wayfarer Bride. Dramatic winged liner and dark lips by Angela Boswell complete the look.
We all love inspiration that features an incredible couple, but lets not forget about the girl squad who supported the Bride through their friendship, her meeting the love of her life, planning a wedding, and everything in between! These are the ladies who stand up next to the bride on her big day. We hope you enjoy this unique glimpse into a part of the day that isn’t always featured, but is just as glamorous and exciting as the rest of the wedding day.
