First Blush: Timeless Wedding Gowns
Madeleine Barnes models two dresses from Claire Pettibone's collection, one in palest pink ombré and another in elegant ivory lace. A chic bolero, also by Claire Pettibone, adds to her feminine mystique paired with hair accessories by Erica Elizabeth Designs and shoes by Ruche Bridal. Cupcakes Couture composed a splendid fondant cake graced with lush roses that perfectly mimic their living counterparts. In a display of extravagant pink, Dolce Designs blended David Austin 'Keira' roses with blush Sarah Bernhardt peonies, nerines, tulips and ranunculuses.
A pink petal dress by Vue Designs is at once vintage and very of the moment, complemented by Ruche Bridal shoes and jewelry and a delicate Erica Elizabeth Designs hair accessory. The ensemble appears to have been made for the intoxicating surroundings of the almond orchard located on a private estate in California.
Madeleine Barnes and Branden Rickman are timeless in the poetic almond orchards, with Madeleine in a lace dress and bolero by Claire Pettibone. Photographer Stephanie Williams' images bear her inimitable romantic signature.
