When a bridal session is as stunning as this one is, you can’t help but smile.  Maybe it’s because the bride is drop-dead gorgeous and rockin’ one seriously amazing Monique Lhuillier gown – or maybe it’s the way she frolics through that breathtaking Dallas field with a beautiful bouquet from Bows and Arrows and a joy that can only be found in true love.  My guess?  It’s a sweet, sweet combo of all of the above.  And the gallery captured by Heather Hawkins Photography?  Amazing with a capital A.  Join me there for more.

From Heather Hawkins PhotographyThis gorgeous bride, Korena, grew up on a small farm in Oklahoma and is now a Dallas-based art director with impeccable taste. After getting engaged in the mountains of Santa Fe, she and her fiance decided to elope to the gorgeous Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California. She found the beautiful Monique Lhuillier legend gown at the Neiman Marcus flagship store in downtown Dallas and teamed up with the florists Bows and Arrows for one stunning, light-filled shoot. It was the perfect Fall day for her vision to come to life before she married the man she fell in love with!
