As Seen In: Blithewold Mansion Wedding Inspiration in Bliss Celebrations Magazine

I love the return to elegance that we are seeing in bridal. I was thrilled when the Blithewold Mansion was selected as the venue for the editorial shoot, as I knew it would be the perfect back drop to the elegant theme that the creative team envisioned. The Blithewold Mansion has such a stately feel to it, that it called for a classic and elegant gown. I selected the Ansel gown from Carolina Herrera Bride, as its silk striped skirt provides a classic New England feel and its beaded neckline makes it perfect for a black tie affair. I paired the gown with black bridesmaid dresses from Amsale and Theia. Each bridesmaid had their own elegant look, dressed in lace, sequins and tulle. The bride’s reception look was one of my all time favorites! It was a sheath with an ostrich feather skirt paired with an embroidered over coat from JLM Couture. The vintage inspired cage veil from Bijou Van Ness was the finishing touch! I was thrilled to collaborate with a dream team of talents to bring the creative vision of this shoot to life!
