Liz's Ocean Springs Bridal Portraits

I love the Southern tradition of bridal portrait sessions. It is so lovely to focus on the beauty of a bride at a time that is calm and peaceful, before the hustle and bustle of the big day. The only part I don't like is having to wait until after the wedding before I can share the photos! At long last, this wait is over, because Elizabeth is married! I am so excited for you to see this gorgeous bride and all the perfect details that made up her bridal look. I loved her rhinestone-studded flats and her cascading bouquet--can you believe it's silk?!

I was also pretty thrilled about the location for our session, a fabulous home along front beach in Ocean Springs. Ever since it was built, my husband and I have been calling it "the Garden & Gun house" because it looks like it should go on the cover of our favorite southern magazine. When I got word that I would have the opportunity to step foot on this amazing porch--WITH my camera, no less!--I was a wee bit excited. Isn't it the perfect setting for this beautiful bride?

I was so impressed to learn that Liz's mom made the lace veil from a piece of the gown!

Aren't the autumnal colors in the bridesmaid bouquets beautiful?

Isn't her feather fascinator adorable?
