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!"
