We've been basking in all things Elizabeth Messina today on SMP. And this next piece of Kiss the Groom perfection is the epitome of Elizabeth style. Soft, romantic, heartbreakingly beautiful. This is the canvas for her latest workshop which we figured was the perfect way to kiss your day with a bit of bridal inspiration - from the stunning palette to the whimsical details, from the crazy beautiful headpieces by Twigs & Honey to the moments of sheer lace genius - this is wedding done so very right. Oh and did we mention that Elizabeth has decided to give a second book away to one lucky reader? Yep, it's true. So read on my lovelies...and click here to see every last bit of perfection.

Okay, before we get to the super fun book giveaway ahead, we wanted to take a moment to pay homage to the other geniuses that made this workshop happen...the attendees. We've pored over their photographs and as it happens, learning from Elizabeth Messina, sure is some kind of wonderful. Here's our pick for the best photo of the workshop, captured beautifully by Annabella Charles...who, for the record, is as lovely as her images. Which are indeed spectacular.

Okay, now on to the Book Giveaway (!!!), where one lucky reader will walk away with their very own copy of A Luminous Portrait. And it is quite possibly one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen so lucky is exactly what you will be feeling if that lucky girl or boy is you!

To Enter: Choose Your Favorite Workshop Photo from this post. The gallery is here.

Leave a Comment: You can describe the image, leave the title number, upload the image, whatever you want. Just pick your fav!

Big Winner: A Random winner will be chosen on Friday, August 10th

A huge thank you to Elizabeth Messina for opening up her workshop to us today. Elizabeth sees the world as pure and simple and beautiful and we are all better because of it. And thank you for including us in this journey. We heart you forever and ever.
