Bridal Attire: Fabulous Frocks
cThe peaceful and rolling pastures of the property made us feel like we were tucked away somewhere no one else knew of. Minimalistic wintry aesthetics mix a canvas for the adoring newlyweds, toasting to their deep commitment in the details; rich, decadent chocolates, layers of golden ambers with dinnerware and marble slated grey-blue textiles.
The dress is a sleeveless, ivory colored, A-line silhouette with a small train and deep neckline. The released pleats at the waist allow for an hourglass effect (I love how modern the cut is on Elizabeth).
While strolling the property, we were inspired by the naturally growing red camellias and knew we had to incorporate that splash of color in the mix. The florals were composed of a mix of foraged and fresh blooms including: fragrant eucalyptus, pampas grass, cotton pods, juniper, and camellias. They appear as if they are straight form the gardens! Cotton and hydrangeas are an ode to the south, and the greenery reminds us of winter firs in Georgia.
The bride wore a romantic side swept up-style with an effortless type of aesthetic. The groom, Chris, had a more tousled and rugged look.
These elements were accompanied by soft snows falling at the end of the shoot. A rarity in Georgia!

Whatever you have, and whoever you are, make it beautiful: A long neck, freckles, smile lines. Strengthen your “imperfections” and celebrate them. Make them your trademark. Just don’t be boring! Because you’re not.
Celebrate every detail. Don’t let the world dictate what’s special about you. Trends and fads come and go.
My inspiration for the post was Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. She was editor-in-chief of Vogue. The documentary narrates the story of her rise to fashion “empress.”
“It’s not about the dress that you wear, it is about the life you live in the dress.”
All are beautiful. And all are uniquely themselves.
