I don’t have many regrets from my big day, but after seeing this gorgeous bridal shoot from Emilia Jane at the Cuneo Mansion and Gardens I am super bummed I didn’t think to do a similar shoot. Because these images of this stunning Bride are completely breathtaking, and you can see them all right here.
From Emilia Jane… It was such a joy to collaborate with a stylish bride and amazing hair, make-up, and floral team to put together Katharyn’s bridal photo session at Cuneo. Honestly I believe it’s one of the most beautiful venues in Chicagoland. So often wedding days are too rushed to have enough time for real bridal portraiture. I love the southern tradition of bridal portraits and am trying to bring it north! I just adore when my brides take the time to set up a separate session for photos in their dress. It’s a great excuse for a professional hair and make-up trial too, to see how flawlessly everything fits together.
From Daphne at Loyola’s Cuneo Mansion and Gardens…
Loyola’s Cuneo Mansion and Gardens is unique in that it is not only a historic mansion but also a living museum encompassed by 97 acres of lush gardens. The Venetian style architecture of the mansion and embellished gardens with neoclassical statuary and fountains allow wedding couples to have their fairy tale wedding come to life. The best part is wedding couples have access to take unlimited photography on the grounds of the mansion encapsulating their special day. Also included is the rental– guests have the ability to tour the mansion and view European artwork and tapestries while sipping on cocktails.
