I'm in love with this romantic bridal inspiration shoot. I wanted to show brides that you can have a comfortable and simple look on your wedding day that still feels like you.

Getting ready for your wedding day can be such a special and intimate time if you want it to be. Whether you're surrounded by your girls or just putting yourself together, it's the beginning of you on your best day. This is actually my favorite part of the wedding day if you can believe it!! I love pulling brides aside and taking some timeless and delicate photos to capture this time forever. I want you to freak out about how amazing you looked on your day every time you see the photos.

With the help of some amazing local Portland vendors, we were able to create two beautiful bridal looks. A little bit modern, a little bit boho and a lot of romance. Arranged For You florals came through with TWO gorgeous bouquets that added so much to the looks. The accessories were so good, I seriously can't decide if I love the Sara Gabriel veil more or that gorgeous Emma Katzka crown. Thanks so much to Portland's a&bé bridal shop for loaning the dress for the shoot and for styling the looks! 

When you're planning out your bridal look, make sure each piece makes you feel like you. Schedule a time to do a makeup and hair trial with your MUA and redo it as many times as you need until you're totally happy! That's what trials are for!! I'm totally the kind of person that would feel super guilty about asking for more do overs so if that's you too, I feel ya, girl. Try on your dress with all of your accessories until everything feels totally right. 

You don't want to look like a stranger on your wedding day, you want to look like your best self.
