Bridal beauty comes in many forms, and we have been blessed to feature some true stunners on their big day! Yet, the truest beauty is that of a bride who lives in the certainty of her affections and welcomes each bright and blessed (and yes, sometimes unscripted!) moment of her wedding. A bride should be equal parts fluster and complete delight, cast in butterflies and dipped in absolute certainty—but most of all, she should feel more herself, more alive, and more truly at peace in those moments as ever. Bridal style is a reflection of that. When a bride readies, she adorns herself for a new and exciting chapter with the sweetest companion by her side, and to be anything less than the truest embodiment of oneself would leave the soul wanting.
Today’s feature is a quiet exploration in bridal beauty featuring the styles of Blanc de Blanc Bridal. With its stunning details and sweet embellishments by Twigs & Honey, it paints a picture of grace perfect for the elegant bride with a taste for fine blooms!
A word from the photographer, Jim Chiesa:
“This shoot was for the Blanc de Blanc Bridal Lookbook. I wanted a minimalist aesthetic for this shoot to highlight the gowns. I partnered with some of Pittsburgh’s best vendors. With floor to ceiling windows providing plenty of natural light and a neutral color palette interior, the bridal boutique was the perfect location for this shoot.”
