More Details from our Chanel-inspired wedding shoot…

Some of my very favorite details from our Chanel wedding inspiration shoot included the bridal and bridesmaid accessories. The white enamel and gold bangles, the Kenneth Jay Lane oversize flower ring, gloves, lace tights and the big floral headpieces injected the ‘wow factor’ into the bridal and bridesmaid looks. That is precisely why I love styling brides – it truly is an art, and you have to have a well honed sense of balance, taste, color and proportion to get it just right. Every new outfit I set out to create for this shoot felt like an exhilarating new challenge… especially since the store that originally promised us pieces for the bridesmaids fell through a day before and I picked out all new the pieces seen in the shoot in an hour.

Doing a wedding shoot like this once again reminded me that beauty really is all around, and I am so grateful to have a career that I am deeply passionate about. Hope you have enjoyed all the eye candy. Until next time…

XO,
