Just the mere mention of Paris evokes elegance from a bygone era, elegance we hoped to channel for this stylized shoot that took place in the heart of the romantic city. We set up at the historic Grand Salon of the Shangri-La Hotel in France. The beautiful room, with it’s gilded decor and luxury feel was the perfect place for a bride to ready herself for her big day. Her gown (a lace number by Claire Pettibone) was flattering and perfect, and was a true work of art. To achieve a classic French bridal look, hair and makeup artist Marina carefully added neutral tones and a chignon to our already-stunning bridal model.
In addition, we are featuring florals by Estelle Preston, who used some of France’s most beautiful flowers, like garden roses in quiet blush tones. Everything was rounded out with polished and elegant details, like a custom invitation suite, and a trousseau box which was a traditional place for a bride-to-be to keep her favorite heirlooms. Backed by the views of the city, and the Eiffel Tower, this Parisian shoot swept us away to romance.
