If the graces of Spanish romanticism and deep abiding reds aren’t a recipe for elegance, then elegance itself certainly has me at a loss! Kassie Burns of Kassie Ana Photography dreamt of a timeless inspiration with just these in mind, and with the help of some truly incredible talents, the vision was soon brought to life. It has all the tender trappings of exquisitely classic taste, the kind of bridal style which warms the soul with tranquil passion!
A word from the team:
“The inspiration for this bridal session came from the effortless elegance of the everyday brides of Barcelona and Madrid. To showcase the style of the Spanish bride, we carefully selected the gown, accessories, hair, make up, floral and invitation design.
Shot on the winding scenic paths of the downtown Naperville River walk, Kassie Ana Photography captured such beauty with the early autumn greenery as the perfect frame.
Provided by Simply Luxe Bridal of Alqonquin, IL, the lace detail and simple silhouette of the Altelier Pronovias Vicenta gown was absolutely flawless. To truly capture the style of the Spanish bride, incorporating an embellished headpiece was a must. This golden piece by Malis Henderson Bridal was the perfect accessory to compliment the velvet ribbon-tied romantic hair styled by Tamara Holden Hair. We kept our lovely model Vlora fresh faced with neutral tones and a berry lip as the focus created by J. Costa Artistry.
To incorporate an earthy vibe, the prairie-inspired bouquet designed by Dirty Boots Flowers of Chicago was the key element and perfect pop of rich berry to our mainly neutral palette. The heirloom inspired invitation suite handcrafted by Andrea Creative Co was fresh, clean and organic, encompassing the neutral tones with precision.
With a pairing of unique elements, this talented team of Midwest vendors brought to life a look that is both stylish and elegant and we hope it will inspire brides everywhere.”
