After all the recent holiday engagements, the bridal industry is gearing up again for an exciting spring bridal season. My work throughout Florida brings me in contact with a great deal of talented professionals, and yesterday I was pleased to work with Ocala Magazine on a gorgeous photo shoot at the Live Oaks Farm. Models Nicole and Hannah showed off the latest in bridal trends for photographer Djamel Ramoul. Djamel's eye for fashion and art brought to life some very unique bridal looks, mixing high fashion with antique charm. Our stylist for the day was Jessica Mitchell, whose creative talents were put to good use as she matched today's fashion-forward gowns with pillbox hats, veils from the 50's, and exquisite vintage jewelry.
Gowns used in the shoot were by designers Romona Keveza (who made my wedding gown), Anne Barge, Kenneth Pool, Alvina Valenta, and Amy Michelson. Overall, the trend is toward sleek, fitted gowns that are sophisticated and make a statement.
Stay tuned for the actual published photos as they become
