Editorial Bridal & Boudoir Portraits, Lakewold Gardens
This spring bridal portrait editorial came together on a sunny late spring day at Lakewold Gardens with Kerry Jeanne Photography and Yessie Libby Makeup Artistry. The soft spring flowers complimented the lace gown Watters gown from BHLDN and delicate veil from The Veiled Beauty. And Susie Saltzman sent the most stunning engagement ring! We included a bridal boudoir portion of the editorial as well, to showcase a slow and intentional getting ready morning. Lakewold Gardens is an incredibly beautiful wedding venue year round, but is particularly delightful in the late spring when its gardens are in full bloom. The roses in bloom over the gazebo trellis are so stunning! I wish I could transplant this to my backyard! Not only that, but the inside features beautiful hand painted European wallpaper - it is definitely worth a visit!
For the bridal bouquet, we used only locally grown flowers from the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market: fluttery, delicate Icelandic poppies from Jello Mold Farm, delicate Queen Anne's lace, twisting eremerus with its individual buds in various stages of openness, soft scabiosa blooms and buds, lively martagon lilies, a few sweet peas, luscious blush garden roses, and the prettiest single garden roses - those pretty orangey-yellow ones! All of these spring flowers were anchored by a Seattle florist's staple: ferns.
Although I always love bouquet photos, some of my very favorite photos from this bridal portrait session are the photos of Katie holding a single poppy stem. I love the softness and how it really makes you stop and look closely.
To my brides: if you have time in the weeks before your wedding, carve out some time for bridal portraits. You'll treasure the photos forever and it will allow you the time to relax and feel beautiful and pampered.
