Feminine Florals + Lace Bridal Inspiration


The first time I encountered a lace bridal creation by renowned gown designer Claire Pettibone, I was shooting photographer Jana Williams and her husband Dave Baez who were our models at Jose Villa's photography workshop in Mexico.  Seeing the craftsmanship and detail in person were truly inspiring and I've been a big fan of all things Claire Pettibone ever since.  In fact, the designer has recently launched a fine jewelry collection with Trumpet & Horn and I'm really excited to see these beautiful pieces worn by brides the world over.  Paired with the floral stylings of Vancouver's Celsia Floral and photographed by Vasia Photography (who often work together and alongside Artiese Studios to produce gorgeous bridal inspiration), this sweet styled shoot emphasizes delicate femininity without feeling too girly.  The look is elegant and womanly, with an heirloom feel, one which would suit everything from an elopement to a garden party soirée. If you like this look, you also might want to check out this Claire Pettibone gown featured on Vale + Vine in a shoot on the sand dunes of Manitoba.
