From lace that’s like the soft light of the morning to beading that glimmers like the glow of sunset, this bridal editorial, shot by the talented Dillon Ivory Photo, feels like a journey through a full day of romance. The talented team took inspiration from each BHLDN dress to create a distinctly inspired bridal look, and the results are that of magic hours.

As the very first editorial planned for Northwed Magazine, this bridesmaids’ brunch editorial was extra sweet to shoot. I had the honor of working with talented photographer, Julie Harmsen-Fitts and food and prop stylist Malina Lopez, who kindly offered up her home and impressive collection of antiques for the day.
The inspiration for this editorial centered on celebrating the excitement of marriage and savoring the gift of friendship. To honor such a special occasion, I dreamed of a setting that was rich with vintage charm and feminine splendor. What could be a better way for a bride to ask her girls to be her bridesmaids than with a modern take on a tea party? Amongst pretty pastries, bright fruits, and candelabras, the delicious, delicate lemon crepe cake by Love and Pie was the star of the brunch table. To make the editorial even more special, the girls surrounding the table are my best friends who I’d gladly call my own bridesmaids one day.
