I adore the idea of a bridal shoot. Every time I come across a beauty like this one from Amber Vickery Photography I wish I thought to do the same when I was tying the knot. It's a gorgeous collection of images this bride-to-be will cherish for a life time (and who doesn't love an excuse to wear a floral crown from Petal Pushers?), and you can see them all right here.
From Bride to be...With a wedding in June, I drove up to Austin for a Bridal Shoot a few months early. I spent the morning getting my hair and make-up done before going to the florist's studio to pick up my floral crown. It was horribly hot that day, but you couldn't tell it from the photos. My photographer, the incredible Amber Vickery, totally pulled it off. Our venue, Vista West Ranch was vacant and I got to play dress up in the Bridal Suite like it was my wedding day. Suddenly, marriage became my reality. I had been so busy planning that it hadn't hit me yet. The moment I stood in front of the arbor at the ceremony site, my mom starting weeping and remembering me as a little girl. It was so surreal, a picture perfect moment.
