Last week, we had the the pleasure of sharing the sweetest, most romantic boudoir session from Erich McVey, and today, we’re happy to share the traditional bridal portraits they took as well. Bridal portraits, or bridals, are a right-of- passage for many brides in the South, but it seems like the tradition is waning a bit. We’d hate to see this tradition die so we’re especially happy that this beautiful bride took time out before her wedding to take these shots that her family will treasure forever.
If you are lucky enough to schedule bridals with your wedding photographer, make sure to print them to give to your parents to hang in their home (which is tradition). They’ll appreciate that you took the time to give them something special. They spend a lot of time (and probably money) on your wedding, and these shots of their favorite girl would be the perfect way to say, “Thank You!”
Tell us, are you planning bridals before or after your wedding? Are you planning on gifting some portraits to your family?
This gorgeous bridal session is full of elegant inspiration. A lace wedding dress that channels Grace Kelly but adds a modern twist? Perfect for the classic bride who's not afraid to break from tradition.

One of the best things about a wedding is that it gives so many opportunities for families and friends to come together and celebrate, from engagement parties to bridal showers to the rehearsal dinner! Today, we're sharing some of the memories from Stephanie and Anton's casual rehearsal dinner, complete with some really fun Argentinian traditions.
