From Petronella Photography – “In the North, we trash the dress. But in the South, they celebrate the dress.

It’s a tradition in the South to take bridal photos a few weeks or days before the wedding. The bridal session is the perfect chance for the bride to get into her wedding dress, have a hair and makeup trial run, and capture beautiful photos without all the stress of the wedding day.

Building on the Southern tradition of a bridal portrait session, we were inspired by timeless elegance, romantic escapes, and exquisite details to create this vision. Playing with the cool tones of pale blue and ice from the headpiece, vintage bracelet, and gorgeous wedding ring, we contrasted the color palette with shades of purple from pale lavender to richer plums.”

More from Petronella – “We shot this bridal session at the Eau de Pal Beach Resort in Florida and the windswept waterfront provided a lovely palette for our colors.

The hair and makeup highlighted the Dupioni silk Romona Keveza strapless ball gown perfectly and the mirrored metallic menu and chargers were a fabulous backdrop to showcase the range of flowers; from pale lavender roses to tulips, orchids, and purple lisianthus.

The bride’s ombre bouquet starts with a base of lavender hydrangea and amnesia roses, and builds into dark pink and purple tulips. Pulp Pours, which specializes in custom cocktails, joined in the fun by crafting an acai-based martini, rimmed with purple sugar of course!

And not to be outdone, Chef Dana of Desserts by Dana (who you might remember from TLC’s Next Great Baker) provided the elegant four-tier fondant wedding cake, decorated with a variety of textures and an elegantly draped gold bow.”
