Item of the week: Fun veils and headpieces!

Filed under: Bridal, Item of the Week! — shaycochrane @ 9:45 pm

I photographed a beautiful wedding yesterday where the bride wore a fun floral and netting headpiece designed by her own sister!  This gave me the idea for this weeks “Item of the week!”  More and more bride’s are opting for a non-traditional alternative to the classic veil.  The veil then becomes a great way to showcase your own unique style as well as pulling in other design and color elements from your wedding decor! This is a great way to personalize your look when you have opted for a more traditional styled gown.  Headpieces can be made with anything from florals to feathers and many options can be found on Etsy (and who doesn’t want one more excuse to be on Etsy!)

Here is the head piece worn by Lizzy at yesterday’s wedding in Spring Hill. (More images to come soon!)

And here are are a few other ideas to get you started…

Filed under: Bridal — shaycochrane @ 6:10 am

So, I am here in San Diego, CA for one week at the incredible conference that I have been waiting months for! I would write more about how much I have already learned today and how much fun we had but I am too utterly exhausted…so I am simply going to post a few of my favorite images from the day. Enjoy!
