Rustic Chic Illinois Distillery Proposal

SHE SAID YES! On Sunday, June 4, Michel brought Alex back to Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. to propose where they'd shared their "first real date." Having invited their families and close friends to hide themselves away in the tasting room, Michel proposed in the romantic courtyard.

With strings of cafe lights overhead and arrangements of sunflowers and hydrangeas created by Floral Wonders of Geneva scattered throughout, it couldn't have been more beautifully planned. The wonderfully talented Ashley of Higuchi Productions was also on hand to document the occasion. After a teary, happy party, the couple stole away to take several portraits together on the distillery grounds to celebrate the moment. 

Vintage Fine Art Luxury Hotel Boudoir

This lovely bridal boudoir series was a dream collaboration with award-winning bridal makeup artist Carly Pribich, talented Chicago Gold Coast stylist Krista of KMarie Hair Studio and Eva's Floral Wonders of Geneva, IL. The vintage lingerie featured was selected from the model's personal curated collection and wedding hair accessories provided by Hair Comes the Bride. PhotoVision processed these boudoir photographs, created using Kodak Portra 160 and Portra 400 film.

True Grace Photography bridal boudoir sessions are inspired by quiet confidence, honesty, personality and the strength and loveliness of femininity.

Special thanks to model, R, for sharing her figure, face, energy and vintage lingerie to expand and elevate the vision of this boudoir collaboration.
