Let it Flow | Rockin’ the Long Bridal Veil

By, February 18, 2016

Debating whether to rock a long veil on your wedding day? For modern brides, a veil is now an optional embellishment, and a matter of personal preference. However, the wearing of a veil is a longstanding bridal custom, dating back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans. After seeing the photos below, you may be inspired to honor this practice, or to put your own spin on it.

As photographers, we are in favor of brides keeping this tradition strong! Veils are accessories that we can play with, and use to take images to new heights. The daintiness and sheerness of veils add texture to wedding photos, and help us to create dramatic and romantic compositions.

Out of the many different veil lengths available, today we are spotlighting chapel and cathedral veils. A chapel veil reaches the ground, while a cathedral veil extends even further, and spreads out beautifully behind the bride. The dramatic length of these particular veils allows us to create striking portraits that would otherwise not have the same effect. What bride wouldn’t want to channel her inner model and totally rock a “veil in the wind” shot?

Check out our collection of long veil portraits and prepare to be “blown away” ;)

Guess the Dress #2: Mon Amie Bridal Salon

By, February 10, 2015

This week’s mystery dress is presented to you courtesy of Mon Amie Bridal Salon in Costa Mesa, California. This premiere bridal shop has been putting brides in dreamy gowns since 1976, including our lovely bride Jessica!

On her wedding day at the US Grant, Jessica donned the lacy strapless number shown here. With its billowing tiered ruffles and form-fitting shape, the dress gave Jessica an amazing flamenco vibe. To complete the look, she added a long lace scalloped veil, and accentuated her waistline with a stunning floral and rhinestone tie-on sash. But let’s not get distracted. The big question still remains – who designed this dress?  Answer our quiz question below to find out!

Who is the designer of the wedding dress shown here?

Answer: This gorgeous wedding dress is by Pronovias – and Mon Amie Bridal Salon still carries it! :)

Mon Amie Bridal Salon is a spacious boutique that carries gowns and accessories for the entire bridal party. Along with all of the designers listed above, you will find a selection of designer gowns by big names such as Sarah Nouri and Blush by Hayley Paige. We talked with Beth from Mon Amie, who believes this season’s trends will include airy ballgowns, caplets, and dramatic necklines. She also said that many brides are requesting dress options that depart from the traditional white. So you can expect to find these styles and more in store.

Here’s what Beth had to say about visiting Mon Amie:

Keep an open mind! There are thousands of designers that make beautiful dresses, and while you may have a specific style in mind for yourself, sometimes an unexpected dress will steal your heart.  Definitely try on the dresses you are drawn to, but also take a chance.

Once you have found the dress, stop looking. You love it for a reason!

Check out the images we captured of the beautiful dress that Jessica fell in love with, and be sure to visit their boutique.  There is a reason they’ve been in business for over 35 years!!

Beverly Hills Elegance

While Beverly Hills may draw some popular names, nothing can steal the show like a dashing groom with a stunning bride!

On the street outside the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where Kelly and Julio tied the knot, the two lovebirds stopped to snag a kiss. What a magazine-worthy moment it was! With Kelly’s long veil blowing in the wind, this classic black and white image is surely one to frame!
