Making brides feel confident and beautiful is our main goal, and we want to show every single bride that she can make an incredible fashion statement with her wedding day look. We felt that the bridal world was missing images of curvy brides in gowns that aren't your typical A-line silhouette, so for this shoot, we wanted to show that amazing, high-end bridal fashion inspiration is not at all limited to one body shape or size. It's designer bridal inspiration, that just so happens to be with brides sizes 14 and above.
We went for a dark, moody, high-fashion look for the shoot, with a blank slate backdrop at Realm, incredible florals (including a black painted cloud installation) by Lace and Lilies, dramatic makeup, and vintage Vogue-inspired hair. An unexpected, feminine cake by Wildflower Cakes and delicate calligraphy by Mia Stone Designs rounded out a design that was a little edgy and editorial, but still totally approachable.
