once upon a dream: fairytale bridal inspiration

Once Upon a Dream from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty has to be one of my favorite Disney songs of all time and Lana Del Ray’s reimagining of it for the new movie Maleficent has got me hooked.

That classic, romantic, and beautiful song – Once Upon a Dream – was the catalyst behind today’s gorgeous bridal session inspiration shoot by Esther Gallarday Photography!

From Esther – “The inspiration for this shoot was the theme of Once Upon a Dream, and I wanted to incorporate subtle hints of a fairytale. Using thrifted china, a tea set, and antique book pages as an element on the table, we created a nod to princesses and knights without a clichéd look.

We kept the bridal look simple and natural with soft makeup and used a color palette of gentle pinks, dreamy golds, and subtle pops of deeper colors to a touch of magic to a wintry day in northern Indiana!”
