Watercolor Garden Editorial Collaboration

This collaborative styled bridal session represents some of the best talent and versatile vendors in the Chicago wedding community!

A little backstory: this shoot was only possible because of the kindness and patience of these creative women. After months of planning and coordination, I woke up the morning of our shoot with a high fever and what I found out late was "the real flu." I was pretty out of it and disoriented (and honestly, a little freaked out!). However, we powered right on through and created this gem! This pro team knows how to make the best of any circumstance.

This shoot was inspired by the aesthetic conversation of natural elements and modern design. Wild, organic beauty is encouraged to thrive within the structure of architectural elements and floral framing.

Please scroll through the photographs to find information about all of the lovely people who created each element of this inspiration bridal shoot.
