While there are many parts of my upcoming wedding that I’m looking forward to, spending the morning with my favorite ladies is by far one of the most exciting. Love & Light Photographs captured this joy and the gorgeous gowns from Two Birds Bridesmaid and Gabriella New York just make it all even better. Between Sleep and Awake filmed the fun and this gallery has me more excited than ever.


From Love & Light Photographs… One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is the time spent getting ready with the bride in the morning. Chances are, your friends have traveled from near and far to be with you… and let’s face it – it’s the ultimate time to be a girls girl. Everyone is getting their hair and makeup done, champagne bottles are popping, and you are reminiscing about the old days – the days before you met the love of your life. This girl time is so special and I wanted to create a styled shoot with exactly that vibe. This super cool loft fit the bill with it’s modern yet rustic decor, tons of natural light, and a big farm table with lightbulbs strung over it to bring everyone together. Amy Kuschel’s chic gown from Gabriella Bridal was simply perfect for the scene, and I loved adding fun pops of color against the chambrays and blues that provided the backdrop. Anne of Blade NYC just GETS it. The bride’s bouquet is everything and I had so much fun photographing it in this chill yet chic environment. I hope it inspires brides to think about a special getting ready location that is meaningful to them. To take a second and cheers her favorite people in her life who ALWAYS have her back. To breathe a few deep breaths before walking down the aisle… hope you love!
