Google+ New Year's-Inspired Fashion Shoot - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Well, my dearies, I don’t know about you, but I’m still basking in the glow of Christmas even as New Year’s Eve sneaks around the corner! To celebrate this lovely in-between time, we have a glamorous yet sweet fashion shoot to share. Shannon Nicole Smith sent in the sparkly submission and was both the photographer and stylist for the day. Solutions Bridal provided the gowns (and the larger bow!), In Bloom Florists the bouquets, and Le Chic Studio the insanely (sorry, I can’t help it!) chic hairpieces and veils. Props also go to Sarah Hearts for the torn fabric backdrop spotted in a few photos. Enjoy, and happy almost New Year’s!

Those beautiful blushes? All courtesy of Make Me Up Labs. I love how fresh and sweet these ladies look!

Anyone else IN LOVE with the sparkly bolero or petite bow veil?! I DIE!

For any ladies who might be interested, I have a few more details on the dresses…

Dress No. 1: Mimi by Watters (silk taffeta full a-line with pleating at the natural waist and chapel train)
Dress No. 2: Tabernas by Watters (fitted dropped waist mermaid with a gathered skirt created with silk organza)
Dress No. 3: By Marisa (Silk satin rouged bodice with a multiple layered organza skirt)
Dress No. 4: Torrean by Watters (silk satin bodice with textured neckline and skirt created with hand cut flowers with swarovski center)

…and bouquet: white mini calla lilies, spray roses, porcelina, and yellow stock (tied with satin ribbon).

Check back tomorrow for personal reflections on 2010 from Katharine, Lara, and myself!

    WHERE can we find that gorgeous gold sequin bolero??

    • avatar Emily reply

      Hi Miss Amy! I freaked out over the gold sequin bolero, too :) It was a piece from Le Chic Studio (, and though I don’t see it on their website right now, I’m sure if you sent them an email they could probably make a custom piece for you. Best of luck!

      Hi, again! I just got word from Shannon, the photographer, that the gold bolero was NOT made by Le Chic Studio but a thrifted, vintage item. Shannon suggested checking eBay and other internet sources to find your own!
