Wedding prep can be an endless stream of details and scheduling, but in the end it all culminates into one single day, a single morning of donning your wedding attire and stepping boldly into a whole new chapter! Today’s feature is about just that: a stunning bride taking her few moments to dress for her big day. It’s in these stunning frames of slipping on her shoes, and sipping a beverage, or else taking a moment to quietly rest in bridal bliss, that punctuate the often overlooked pre-“I do” minutes that usher a woman into marriage. Our scene unfolds through the mind and lens of Shanell Photography, a gorgeous tapestry of Violet Rose florals and the fine talents of Cali O’Rourke Calligraphy. Every detail comes alive, every nuance another beautifully intentional note of loveliness to exceed the last. This, my friends, is a truly stunning picture of the modern bride!
