This intimate and romantic bridal boudoir inspiration is featured on The White Wren today! I had the honor of working alongside some of the most talented wedding vendors in the industry at the Michael and Carina Workshop this past April.

“True beauty comes from within. This beautiful boudoir set up was designed by the immensely talented Elizabeth of East Made Event Company. The setting at The Retreat at Cool Spring was very intimate which helped capture true emotion. The use of black and white film really enhanced this feeling as well. I believe it is imperative for every woman to truly feel beautiful from within. Boudoir is a celebration of who you are and the love you have for yourself and that needs to be remembered. Photos help preserve those feelings forever. It was such an honor working with all of these talented vendors.”

“The inspiration behind this shoot lies within the romantic, delicate details of embracing the soft femininity of a bride while celebrating the blooming seasons of Spring and Summer. Pastel and lush florals with a vibrant pop of color, alluring, ethereal design and flowing fabrics within a naturally lit loft space encapsulated the essence of feminine beauty. Romantic hairstyles and natural, gorgeous makeup by Nicol Artistry inspires a classic look to amplify tender beauty. We further wanted to showcase this aesthetic within the bouquets and centerpiece created by The Blooming Bud of soft and vibrant florals as well as simple and classic table scape styling of china and candlesticks by Sundrop Vintage. Guests names and invitations are the finishing touches of detail with fine calligraphy by Alley & Co. This shoot brings together an array of the season’s best attributes along with touches of romantic styles and the organic beauty of womanhood.” – Kayla of Love Sparkle Pretty
