The Ballerina Bride | A Styled Shoot by The Newport Bride

Meet the lovely Leila. The second she saw this soft pink gown, she started squealing. The layers of pink tulle make the ballgown look soft and light as air. The train feels grand but still playful. We played up the innocent feel with a ballerina bun and some sparkling bling. As you can see in these pictures, the gown was not only beautiful to look at, but fun to wear! The whole time, the crew was just giggling. Such fun! Is this ballerina bride style your favorite look so far? If you love this dress, comment below. We know where you can get one!

We started the day with 3 models, 7 dresses, a dozen pairs of shoes, bouquets, and jewelry; the full shabang. After hours of dress changes and flying hairspray, we came away with 6 polished looks. Over the next few weeks we’re going to debut the outfits. There’s inspiration for every bride, something boho, something pink, something retro, something classic, some that are pure fun!
