Bridal Session at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

Truth be told, my one and only wedding regret is failing to book those bridal portraits. It’s that oh-so-special time to twirl around in your dress and capture that downright gorgeous “glow” before the Big Day, but thankfully I now get to live vicariously through shoots like this beauty from Feather & Twine. It’s everything a bridal session should be, and you can click right here for soooo much more.

From the Bride… I was never the girl who dreamed about her wedding growing up. I’m terrible at decisions and wedding magazines stress me out, but when I got engaged it’s like something altered my DNA and I became the most decisive bride known to man! I saw a dress on Pinterest, stalked the links until I found the designer, called a store and a few days later I bought it.

When I put it on after my last fitting, I felt wonderful. It was so comfortable and flirty. I love the outdoors, so I knew I wanted to do my bridals somewhere unique and in nature. We settled on a nature preserve in Plano and had the most wonderful day. My desire for the day can be summed up in three words: natural, lovely and fun. Kelsey and Talon made it that and so much more. Yes it was windy and I was eaten alive by chiggers, but it was the first day I really felt like a bride.

Walking down the aisle is such a clear and perfect memory for me. I was incredibly calm and comfortable, which surprises me to this day. The dress made me feel so elegant and allowed me to focus on what really mattered that day. I’m thankful I found a dress that was comfortable and made me feel like me. It will always be my most favorite outfit choice :)

From Ivy WeddingsStacy and John had an intimate southern wedding at the bride’s childhood church. Stacy’s vintage taste was reflected in her choice of dress, shoes, hairpiece, and bouquet. The bride sprinkled details throughout her wedding and reception that reminded everyone of the couple’s elegant, classic sense of romance. Stacy and John’s wedding day turned out beautifully, and the Texas weather played along perfectly with a warm, sunny afternoon for the wedding, and a cool, breezy evening for the reception and the fun goodbye for the bride and groom!

From the Bride… Our wedding was a fairy tale.  It was a medley of family and laughter and, of course, love.  We hoped that the culmination of all of the planning and prayers would present an adequate illustration of the merging of two very smitten people.  It was a bit wild, certainly whimsical and, when possible, glittery.  And, all in all, it was decadently sweet just in the simple fact that at the end of the day we walked heart to heart and hand in hand into a little taste of happily ever after.
