garden-inspired bridal boudoir

From the designer Candice, CM Events “This bridal boudoir shoot was held at the gardens and greenhouse of the Oatlands Historic House in Virginia, which was the perfect setting! The beautiful garden provided inspiration for the romantic and flower infused bridal boudoir session.”

“With this editorial I wanted to provide inspiration on how brides can style their getting ready photos, by incorporating an elegant and artistic boudoir and telling a story showing the love and excitement felt the day of the wedding. Who wouldn’t want a morning full of sweets, love letters and floral accessories?”

“The shoot begins in the greenhouse with the bride enjoying breakfast and reading love letters especially written for her on the wedding day. The bride to be then reads over her vows and imagines the marriage journey she is about to take. Finally, the bride changes into her gown for portraits in the the garden!”

“For the floral designs I used roses, tulips, ranunculus, sweet peas, lisianthus, and scabiosa in shades of pink, orange and purple. Fresh flowers were used in every aspect including the flower crown, bouquet, cuff, and necklace. Custom Crafted provided the gorgeous calligraphy on all the love letters, notes, and stationery suite.

Cathy Ebrada provided the chic and flowy gown and the tasty macarons were made by Sweets by E while Joanna of The Highlight provided the beautiful makeup look and Melissa of Lissa Ryan Photography captured the shoot on film perfectly!”
