Romantic Parisian Wedding

Do you remember Nicole and Thomas, the beautiful couple from our elegant Virginia wedding a few months ago? Elisa B. Photography had the privilege of photographing them the other month while she was in Paris and sent over their lovely session for us to enjoy. Since the bride’s original wedding dress was still being cleaned in the States, they were able to borrow a few gorgeous gowns and veils from Delphine Manivet to make this shoot complete. In case you missed viewing the photos from their wedding in Virginia, you can view the full gallery here. We also have more images from this romantic Parisian wedding shoot in our real weddings gallery.

Rustic Wedding at Ash Lawn

Country Wedding in Virginia

In anticipation for all this beautiful fall weather coming our way, Lora Kelley sent over this lovely bit of inspiration for any brides looking to get married outside with a rustic wedding twist. Although strapless has been the most popular neckline for the last decade, I’m excited to see designers offer more neckline options like this beautiful Carmen Marc Valvo gown. The delicate cap sleeves combined with the soft and light material keep the entire dress very chic, but still casual all at the same time.
