Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. The warm breeze on my skin at the beach at the end of the day is one of the best feelings ever. My love of breathtaking beach sunsets, inspired me to design this modern style shoot. To all the upcoming brides this year, I hope it really inspires them with ideas. My vision started when I saw this beautiful jumpsuit at Amanda’s Collection Bridal Store. This piece is so amazing, modern and super comfortable to wear all day. It had all the traditional elegance we love about beach weddings. The modern style kept it fresh and youthful.
When talking to a sweet friend of mine and also a great photographer Jussara Potter, she gave me the idea of using a white bike and blue flowers for the bouquet. My mind started getting more and more excited about this shoot. I realized that I do have a vintage bicycle my husband gifted me a couple years ago. The only problem – it was red. When I am on a mission, my mind does not stop. Next step was hands on action. I bought some cans of matte spray paint and before I knew it the red was gone. The transformation was simply beautiful! What an excitement:)
After I finished with the bike, I started looking for flowers for a full bouquet. I wanted a romantic touch and full bouquet with cream soft shades. When I saw the blue passion fruit flowers, they caught my eyes immediately. Now was time to start planning the whole shoot. My model was Emily Conboy, such a great friend of my daughter. Next step was to get in contact with my favorite make up artist and hair stylist. Peggy Boodro, from ‘You. Only Better Make Up Artistry’ did her magic with the make up and Anna Neves from Flawless Bridal Lounge did an outstanding job with the waves in Emily’s hair. I love working with them because they truly bring my vision to reality 100% every time and never overdo in any aspect.
The beach scenery couldn’t be more perfect, and being there enjoying all this beauty, made me realize one more time how beautiful the simple things are. Now… Enjoy!
