While some people think that red is an absolute on Valentine’s Day, we prefer to highlight the romance the day represents. So imagine how delighted we were to receive a shoot of these gorgeous and feminine dresses from Marchesa. Some really wonderful choices for a bride who wants to wear a non-traditional wedding dress!

From the photographer/stylist, Heather:
As a photographer, I am constantly in search for inspiration through nature, color, fashion and great design. These gowns were insanely inspiring as they feature such depth and richness in color. It was only fitting that for Valentine’s Day, I produce an inspiring shoot that merged these inspirations and push a little outside of the traditional bride’s color story.

Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig like to filter their vision of femininity through a rose-tinted lens. The embroidered, colorful gowns feature laser-cut petals, floral embroideries, and shimmering leaves layered with rainbow-hued petal appliqués that flutter with every move. The luxurious fabrics, delicate silks and elegant silhouettes would make any bride feel pretty and powerful.

The stunning, monochromatic, floral creations were used to highlight the petal appliques on each gown. With a mix of luxury and modern, the final outcome blends all of these elements in hopes of inspiring the bride who’s not afraid of a little color!
