Set in the gardens of the Vizcaya Museum in Miami, this styled bridal shoot boasts rich sunlight, warm colors, and a bride with alluring eyes. This Renaissance-style venue evokes old-world charm, a unique juxtaposition to the refreshing and modern bridal elegance exhibited by one bride in two different looks.
The first part of the shoot focuses on brilliant whites and sunny yellows. A textured bouquet is generously filled with white and yellow blooms, all tied with a fluttery white ribbon.
The bride is classic in an illusion neckline gown, detailed with lace and a voluminous A-line skirt. Her hair is pulled in a low, sleek style near the neck and her makeup brings attention to her eyes.
Beside the stone walls and in front of the iron railing, the bride evokes grace and beauty. She stands drenched in sunlight as she clutches the flourishing bouquet.
Capturing a shot of the back of the gown is ingenious. The open-back of the design is exquisite and one can also see the small sparkling accessory in the bride’s hair.
The aged colors of the location give this shoot character and complement the gown’s white fabric.
The bride is awe-inspiring from every angle - standing beneath the stairs, up-close, and ascending the steps as she changes for the second part of the session.
She literally lets her hair down to show another style all together. Now, the bride sports a berry-colored lip and carries a bouquet with purple hydrangea and orange ranunculus.
The second gown is a more confident design with a halter-style neckline and stunning open-back. It also features lace and floral embellishments down the length of the gown.
For a Miami wedding, this bridal style is perfect in every way. Standing underneath the tall palm trees, the bride looks ready for a romantic stroll on the beach.
She both gathers her hair and lets it fly. She offers playful and solemn expressions. She lets the bouquet ribbons dance in the breeze. It’s a flirty and fun alternative to the timeless look before it.
This styled shoot offers two different looks for the same bride – each with its own unique flair.
No matter the style, the Vizcaya Museum and its aged splendor makes for a versatile and captivating bridal portrait locale.
