Glam romance: A modern winter wedding photo shoot calls for sparkle


To have and hold

Instead of matching bridesmaids’ dresses, consider separates. We went fancy with floor-length sequined skirts from Piperlime, embellished tops from Anthropologie, and mint belts from Target. Different earrings (from Pearl, 296-1115) inject individuality into each ensemble and complement the groomsmen’s Beecroft & Bull tuxes. Floral Images created a bridal bouquet with echiveria, mint green hydrangea, bromeliad, seeded eucalyptus, and acacia foliage. The bridesmaids held bouquets of open garden roses, balsa wood flowers, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus, and groomsmen wore boutonnieres mixed bromeliad and echiveria with assorted foliage and a gold wire wrap. We belted the bride’s WTOO champagne taffeta, strapless, drop-waist gown with a romantic, sparkly belt from Anthropologie for a personalized touch. (Dress from Sealed With A Kiss, 979-5683)
