Picture your very own prenuptial shoot. What elements or details would make it perfect? Perhaps, the location? Do you want that magical touch of gardens where ponds are ornated with lily pads making it seem like a scene from a romantic fantasy movie? Very much like the picturesque views at Bok Towers in Lake Wales, Florida.
How about your dress? Do you have something in mind? What if, deep in your heart, you know you want to wear something that is unconventional. Unique. Something you know will raise eyebrows but will just make you feel… YOU. What if the dress you want is black??? Say what now??? It could be a gown that is intricate in details like this gown from Lillie Mae Collection. It could catch the wind and scream fierce!
Well, who says you can’t wear black for your bridal portraits? Girl, it’s the 21st century. It’s all about doing the things that make you happy nowadays. So It’s time to break some traditions if it’s holding you back from making the photoshoot of your dreams!
I am just obsessed with how this turned out. We often think black clothes have negative connotations that we forget black screams of elegance and timelessness. Well, guess what? This bridal portrait is concrete proof of the latter!
I mean, just look at this beautiful bride in her black gown! With flowers that seem to cascade down a waterfall of fabric, she looks like a goddess-descent who’s about to take over the forest or in this case, the Bok Tower Gardens!
Just thinking about it gives me an exciting surge of pleasant chills!
Let’s not forget the back! How it plunges down to show more of you! It’s just B E A U T I F U L. period.
Imagine limiting your options and excluding the ever-so-classy black dress from your selection? You’ll be missing out on something unique and extraordinary! Remember, black has been the color of elegance and beauty for decades and it will continue to be so for more years to come!
So if you’re thinking about wearing a black gown for your portraits, honey, this is THAT sign you’re looking for. GO FOR IT!
