The Sexy Boho Bride | A Styled Shoot by The Newport Bride

Meet the lovely Joanna. She is rocking this sexy boho lace gown. For this look we wanted something easy, slightly casual but still totally sexy. I think we nailed it. This dress works perfectly with the cathedral veil, the birdcage veil, and even the headdress. It’s magical! Everything works, everything looks good. Would you rock this lace curve hugger? Why or why not?

Candlelight For the Big Day

Everyone looks better in candlelight. It’s flattering at every angle, it makes everything sparkle, and it’s easy! Many brides use votives to enhance their table decor. Putting the sparkly power to work in other places only spreads the warmth. Candles are an elegant choice where ever they are from the ceremony to the reception. Don’t believe us? Take a look, we think these pictures might change your mind.

True Blue Bouquet

Every bride needs something old new, borrowed and blue. These brides made their bouquets blue, and don’t we just love it! Many flowers come naturally in blue, like hydrangeas, orchids, morning glory, iris, butterfly bush, african lily, delphinium, the list goes on and on. Never fear, if your favorite flower comes in a different color, florists can make white flowers blue with a bit of die. Check out the stunning blue roses a few pictures down!

Pearls, Pearls, Pearls!

Pearls are created from a tiny grain of sand that is carefully tended until it turns into a beautiful shining pearl. Seems like there’s a metaphor for love there… Anyway pearls are a classic choice for brides to wear, might as well make it the classy choice for decor!
