Trendy California Bridal Portrait Session. While soft pastels and warm neutrals are very much a standard in the wedding world, there is something fierce, invigorating and refreshing about seeing bold color. A California bride is transformed from Bohemian bridal chic to married midnight maven in this striking styled shoot.
The laid-back look for Bohemian brides is crafted with soft materials, carefree silhouettes and an abundance of flowers. This bride fits the mold with a sleeveless lace empire-waist gown. The boat neckline is crafted with delicate fabric, while a sweetheart neckline peeks through. Her hair is styled in a cool updo complete with braids at the crown. For added glamour, she accessorizes with a statement beaded headband. She is seen holding a gorgeous bouquet bursting with berry-colored blooms, greenery and long ribbons tied to the stems. The makeup artist perfectly pairs a red lip to match.
The bouquet features lots of texture along with an assortment of hearty colors. Large pink peonies are paired with deep red garden roses along with bunches of white accent flowers and thistle. The variety of the flowers and colors is interesting and admirable.
The back of the dress is gorgeous. The beautiful sweeping lace design opens up to a keyhole back, cinched together at the top. Around the bodice is a small belt tied in a bow. The braided detail of the bride's updo also continues around the back.
A Bohemian bride can still be glamorous and stunning in a unique way. This bride coordinates her red lip with a smoky eye palette. Along with the sparkle of her headband, the belt on her dress is a subtle metallic color and offers some shimmer to the simple design.
The detail of the dress is exquisite. The additional accessories incorporated into the look make each last pattern pop. Even a small pink peony looks perfect with the bride's bright red nails.
As the night falls, the bride changes into a dramatic black lace dress. The knee-length design has a layer of black lace on top and champagne-colored tulle underneath for volume. She also trades out her bold bright red lip for a more subdued berry color.
Keeping with the braided idea, the bride now wears a fun fishtail braid with volume at the crown. This is perfect for celebrating and enjoying the evening. Plus, it shows off the interesting back design to the reception dress.
This trendy California bridal offers exemplary style with a colorful twist, showcasing how one can sport different looks while maintaining the same singular essence of the big day. A Bohemian bride can be casual and chic while also embracing a passionate and bold visage.
