Tara Lauren Retro Bridal Shoot

Tara Lauren Retro Bridal Shoot. Visions of a modern day Bridget Bardot on a road trip through California's Pacific Coast Highway fosters a retro tone for this beachside Americana-inspired bridal shoot, featuring five summer-ready gowns from Tara Lauren.

The trip begins in Newport Beach where a 1965 baby blue Ford Mustang awaits a blonde-haired bride.

Her first look starts with a pink pastel scarf wrapped around an updo that features wispy curls to frame her face and raffia woven sunflower earrings. She dons Tara Lauren’s Caprice gown, a gorgeous high-neck design that features delicate Battenburg lace, an open back and slim silhouette with a train.
