This fall and winter, Shannon of SHD Photography gathered these gorgeous ladies to model among this gorgeous scenery and these stunning backdrops. These images will leave you itching to get into your gowns and celebrate your wedding day. What’s your bride style for your wedding day?
Every since I can remember I loved watching award shows… no, not to see who gets awarded ‘best new actor’ or what show won ‘best TV drama,’ but because you get to see so many amazing gowns walk the red carpet. This year the Golden Globes did not disappoint. From pops of color to plunging necklines, the 2013 Golden Globes presented some striking dresses, and awarded us with some extraordinary wedding gown inspiration.

I have talked about this before, but the Midwest has not quite grasped on to the Southern tradition of bridal portraits. Most brides just take a few solo shots on their wedding day (hey, I did). And, you can’t complain when the photog snaps a few simple shots like these.

Not all brides dream of a long white gown – a white gown for that matter. But back to the long part.
When your wedding backdrop and “feel” just don’t equal having a long wedding gown. Don’t feel like you have to have one. Short dresses are just as fun, and sometimes sexier. And, who doesn’t love a sexy bride?

One of the best elements of a wedding day, other than the obvious (the happy couple) is catching a glimpse of the bride’s gown. Her gown says so much about her personality and her style. It’s no wonder more often than not, girls are staying true to their style.

Nearly two months ago, a good friend of mine (and bridesmaid) tied the knot with the Pilot’s old college roommate. Kate happens to be a photographer here in St. Louis, but she is originally from South Carolina. From the day I met her, I fell in love with her honesty and Southern charm. And, while I was beyond thrilled to share her special day with her, I was just as excited that she chose a wedding gown that truly fit her personality to a “T.”

Kate and her husband happen to be on their honeymoon this week – so I hope the two of them are living it up in Hawaii for the week.
I woke up the other morning to quite the flurry on Twitter. Granted, this news was shared a few days ago, but news has yet to really spread like wild flower.
You see, Vera Wang has recently made a new partnership announcement. No, none of her existing gowns, or current lines are going anywhere. Vera will continue to design gorgeous, drool- (and swoon-) worthy gowns that we will continue to lust over. However, she will be teaming up with David’s Bridal and releasing a new (and affordable) line of wedding gowns.
Starting in Spring 2011, David’s Bridal will begin selling Vera Wang designs that will be sold for under $1,500. Yes, you read that correctly.
Since designs are still in the works, no sketches or pictures of the line are available. BUT, Vera recently revealed her Fall 2010 line at Bridal Fashion Week in New York not too long ago. And, no post is a true post without gorgeous photos (of gowns, in this case).
