Romantic creek bridals with plum & berry florals

Illinois Bridal Inspiration

By Magnolia Rouge

Take one stunning ANNA CAMPBELL wedding gown, a textural beauty of a bouquet by FLOURISH & BLOOM EVENTS in warm plum and berry tones and some exquisite images by KRISTIN LA VOIE PHOTOGRAPHY and you have the recipe for bridal perfection! A perfectly 'undone' hair do by BIANCA SANSOSTI ARTISTRY completed the vision.

Kristin had this to say about the shoot, "Every girl grows up wanting to be a Princess at one point or another. Every girl dreams of a picture perfect wedding, complete with tons of dreamy bridal portraits. In reality, we don't become Princesses, and we definitely don't get enough time in a wedding day to create as much lovely art as we would like. Insert bridal session. In the midwest, it is not as common to partake in a separate bridal session as it is in the southern US. What makes them so special, is that you have the freedom to choose a new date, location, and even tweak your bridal look. This shoot was inspired by all of these things. Switching out a traditional white slip for a nude bodysuit, the stunning Anna Campbell embellished gown is immediately an editorial eye-catcher. Since bridal sessions typically take place on LAND, we opted for a unique take with the streaming creek at Leroy Forest Preserve (a dreamy, outdoor haven). With a "deconstructed bridal' viewpoint, our team started with a romantic, messy 'do by Bianca; an effortless look to match the wild and organic bouquet by Jill. Halfway through, the bride transformed into the princess of the Creek, which was truly mesmerising. A literal dream come true!"

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? This would definitely be when Ricky surprised me with not one, but three songs that he had rehearsed with a few of his friends. He had changed the lyrics to already well known songs to describe our love story. He give the most sentimental and meaningful gifts and the time that he put into this wedding gift was exactly that. chup anh cuoi tron goi He was also scarily in his element performing and gave an extremely entertaining performance. On his third song I started to wonder if he was going to hijack our wedding and sing for the rest of the night!
