We love the opportunities that brides have to celebrate every special moment leading up to their marriage. Our culture places a huge emphasis on this time in a woman’s life, and the tradition of bridal portraits is such a beautiful way for a bride-to-be to memorialize her anticipation. This session from Amelia Johnson Photography and Wit Weddings is so dreamy — the blossoming magnolias provide the most romantic setting, emphasizing the bride’s sweetness. Read on for more.

More from Laura Long of Wit Weddings:
“Brides often describe the anticipating moments leading up to their wedding ceremony as surreal. We wanted Elle’s bridal portraits to capture this feeling. When photographer, Amelia Johnson, first saw the magnolia tree, she said it reminded her of a dream. The ethereal setting, with Elle surrounded by a cloud of magnolia blossoms, alludes to surrealism often felt by a bride before her wedding.”
