Truth be told, I’m a sucker for the ‘getting ready’ shots. The sweet moments of anticipation, a graceful portrait of a bride in her dress and a flower girl’s expression of awe at the whole pretty process… it never fails to sweep me off my feet. So when Audra Wrisley sent over this vintage shoot focused on those peaceful ‘getting ready’ moments, I knew I’d be in for a treat. With gorgeous gowns from Kelsey Genna and heavenly florals from Petals & Promises, LLC, this gallery is packed full of lovely.
From Audra Wrisley Photography… I’m excited to share this ‘Getting Ready’ inspired shoot with you today. Featuring vintage lingerie and highlighting the soft, romantic ‘getting ready’ part of the wedding day, our shoot was set in the beautiful Loft 600 in Washington DC. The stunning Kelsey Genna gowns were the perfect culmination to the shoot, incorporating a beautiful mix of vintage styles and delicate details.
From Petals & Promises… The color palette we chose to feature were the very feminine blush pinks as well as deeper hues using floral selections that can be found in the modern version of the Traditional Garden that often includes cutting gardens.
