I am so EXCITED to FINALLY share the images from a fine art bridal editorial featured in Trendy Bride Magazine! Photographed with a Contax 645 with medium format film, this ethereal shoot was photographed at both the Museum of Science and Industry and Room 1520, in Chicago's trendy West Loop neighborhood.
From the Trendy Bride Feature, "For rustic minimalism, this styled shoot from Chicago, Illinois, incorporates just a few elements for a big impact, including peach blooms, a dream venue, and classic bridal style. With a whitewashed venue, it doesn’t take much to create a standout design. Neutral tones and a few romantic additions round out the look for a truly resplendent vibe.
The invitation suite is classic and simple. It features white parchment, cream-colored calligraphy and a personalized wax seal. The collection also includes the venue’s design."
Studded Valentino shoes are a fashion-forward footwear choice for the bride but her best accessory includes a stunning oval-shaped ring, of course. The asymmetrical bouquet features pink and peach roses along with assorted white flowers in a bed of greenery. The collection is tied with pink silk ribbons for an elegant finish. Three different boutonnieres feature roses, veronica, and berries to coordinate with the bride’s bouquet.
The rustic and romantic vibe of this styled shoot was created with one stunning bouquet, two ingenious locations, and timeless bridal style. When you open your eyes to what’s around you and keep things simple and elegant, so much can be achieved in the way of wedding day design.
