Kelley was a stunning bride and I was thrilled to shoot her bridal portrait recently at Lowndes Grove. She wore her grandmother’s gown which was also worn by her mother almost 30 years ago. I’m always amazed that a gown can be preserved and altered and then shared with later generations, but that may just be because my own wedding dress has red wine stains all over it. Good thing I have boys, I guess. Kelley’s gown was altered to be sleeveless but she had an elegant lace bolero made to cover her arms during the ceremony. Add some killer blue Louboutins, a bouquet blooming with roses and peonies, and it makes for an exceptionally elegant bride.
