the girl and the sea

There really aren’t enough synonyms for the word beautiful to describe today’s exquisite bridal session inspiration shoot from Carmen Santorelli. Titled The Girl & The Sea this editorial is as whimsically and elegantly mermaid-like as they get.

I love calligraphy on fabrics lately and this hopelessly romantic bridal shoot really does that trend justice. The bride-to-be uses it as a shawl and an aisle runner, wrapping herself up and treading lightly on poetry. The entire editorial from the fashions chosen to the floral design is simply ravishing!

See another shoot ( a super romantic boudoir session!) from Carmen Santorelli here.
