Bridal Inspirations With French Chic
Narrow alleys, lined by historic buildings, lead us to the hidden Luxembourg Gardens, where we witness fascinating bridal inspirations with French Chic.
We marvel at an avenue of tall trees, an ancient bridge under which softly swaying branches mirror in the water, and imperial stone sculptures reminiscent of a bygone era.
All that appears magically in a golden light, as a pale beauty with dark red hair enters the spacious garden. Gracefully her hair glides down her shoulder aiming her bridal bouquet, as if an invisible bond connected them…
This invisible bond seems to be an elegant reddish brown which, together with delicate shades of cream, harmoniously blends the details of this shoot by Meredith McKee.
For a long time she was dreaming about this project, she told us: „This shoot was an absolute dream featuring both American and French vendors.“
This breathtaking garden venue was not the only highlight, she added: „We flew a stunning Pedram Couture gown from Mea Marie Bridal in Seattle all the way to Paris and we brought some stunning paper goods from Seattle made by Krisanna Elizabeth. Finally, we also bought pastry from a local bakery just blocks away from our venue.“
Magical details, from sparkling jewelry to delicate silk ribbons and the vivid bridal bouquet, show the amazing grasp of Meredith McKee, who captured her perfected visions come true on equally glamorous pictures for us.
