Styled Blush Bridal

This past week was incredibly amazing for being a January week! If you know me at all, you know that I'm not a cold weather person at all- so when a week in the winter is incredibly amazing, it's actually supremely, ecstatically awesome-amazing! This blushy, girly bridal shoot at my studio in downtown Batavia is a big reason this week rocked.

Our model is the lovely Miriam Veil, who had never worn a wedding dress before but found it suited her pretty well. (See below for all the smiles as proof.)

This bespoke blush wedding dress was created and fitted for this shoot by Illinois designer, EllynElizabeth Designs. Her latest work and collections can be found at

Jenna of Jenna Hazel Photography assisted in coordination and co-photographed the shoot with me (see her photographs on her website, She's a sweetheart with a talent at putting people at ease- something important for a photographer!

Makeup and Hair Styling were created by mother-daughter duo Mary Harmon and Stephanie Sarah. Find more of their smashing bridal looks on their website, or visit their cozy Glen Ellyn studio salon.

Jewelry was found via BHLDN, the bridal line by every woman ever's favorite store, anthropologie
