Flowers in her Hair II

When we discovered one of our very favorite photographers, Jose Villa, was going to be on our side of the continent we couldn’t resist getting together and have some fun. So we called our friends at B. Hughes Bridal Salon, in Nashville, who were unbelievably generous, brought up some flowers, called Jordan, one of our favorite hair and make up artists, and just played!

    they absolutely took my breath away. literally. so so so gorgeous. i would get married in that black dress – even in the south. :) absolutely gorgeous.

    I love the black wedding dress especially with her gorgeous red hair! When I eventually get married I’d love to do something that unconventional yet chic.

    I had been toying with the idea of a black wedding dress for a while but somehow got distracted by a couple of other ideas.

    Now that I see this post, I am completely on track again! Black would suit this Northern European weather perfectly…

      hey melissa

      no, the blonde girl is a legit model, but we do have similar features. its a bit freaky how much we favor each other.

    The black wedding dress is so stunning I am dying to get a hold of it! Vera Wangs are truly a favorite. The models are equally beautiful too!

    I adored the black wedding dress. My wedding dress was red and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I love non-white/ivory wedding dresses.

      The white hairpiece was made by just cutting the stems very short and placing them on top of the girls head with bobby pins. We used a mirror and placed them appropriately and just pinned away.

    I am still looking all over for that black dress. Is it Vera or Romona? Is it available anywhere else in the world besides B. Hughes Bridal?? Please help, my wedding’s in three months!

    ok, the black dress is Romona…it comes in white too so try looking for the shape in white and just know its available in black, too. the one with the fur is Vera. and Rose, I know B. Hughes already helped a girl from England get her gown…call them! They’re awesome. I’m sure they can help you, too!
