Natural Hair Bride Style Shoot | Get The Look

| INSPIRATION, Recent Posts

Welcome to the first edition of Feature Friday! Every Friday, I will spotlight an event, preferred vendor from the NHB vendor listing, specialty news or “GET THE LOOK”, how you can achieve a particular look/style. Today, I will be sharing with you some photos from Natural Hair Bride most recent bridal style shoot and how you can achieve THE LOOK.

For the relaunch of Naturalhairbride.com, I decided that it would be great to put together a Natural Hair Bride style shoot. I decided on two looks, a glam bride dripping in crystals and a summer time bride with a twist adding blush pink and gold.

Hair

Kourtney, was asked to prep her natural hair by washing, conditioning and adding 6 to 8 plate braids. During makeup, I used coconut oil to take down each plate carefully to reduce frizz. Using a pick, I pulled at her roots to cover parts and increase hair volume. Next, using barb pins, her hair was twisted upward in the back and on the left side. The right side of her hair remained loose.

The Dress

For this look, I choose a simple yet stylist all white bridal gown,”Morgan” by Nicole Miller found at Alice In Ivory. This sophisticated sleeveless gown has a low cut back with delicate straps and a high neckline. The model, Kourtney looks absolutely stunning in this luxurious stretch silk gown with fish tail train.

Jewelry & Accessories

I added the Art Deco Cosmo Headwrap, a beautiful Swarvoski crystal headwrap that can be worn on top of your hair, head or underneath your veil.  For her arm candy, I placed a Deco wedding cuff, set in sterling silver with Swarvoski crystals throughout. The sash was wrapped around Kourtney’s waist, drenched with silver Swarvoski crystals and beads. Lastly, I added the beautiful Diann Valentine Cuff.

The Decor

Dress

For a twist, The Ti- Adora by Alvina in blush pink was my choice for the alternative style bride. This blush pink dress looked stunning on Kourtney! The Ti-Adora is an A-line bridal gown with a sweetheart neckline.

Accessories

At The Left Bank, I selected a bridal sash in champagne that would blend with the gold and blush pink theme. Earrings were also gold with an added sparkle.

The Decor

Tabula Tua once again created a stunning tablescape of blush pink and gold decor. Every single item can be found within their store or online.
