The Cover Look

spending time with them and helping to promote their businesses. While having hair and makeup done, the entire bridal party celebrated with champagne, fruit and cheese to honor the mother of the bride, Kerri, on her birthday. The day was made all the more special because mom got to see her daughter dolled up as a bride. JA 30A Salon styled Maia’s half-up/ half-down hair in loose curls to align with the beach setting. Serenity by the sea Spa chose a natural glam look with a mauve lip color. Upon seeing the four dresses Margaret Ellen Bridal had selected for the shoot, Maia recognized one of the dresses as being her own runnerup choice. Always fashion-forward, Margaret Ellen Bridal selected trending styles, many of them featured in this magazine, including sweeping veils, scatter pearls, simple yet chic dresses and lots of lace. McCaskill & Company, the designer of Maia’s engagement ring, decked her in a treasure trove of diamonds, pearls and opals. She was handed a gorgeous bouquet, styled by SunQuest Beach Weddings, of cream, blush and burgundy blooms with greenery and pampas grass. The setting was enhanced by an archway designed with coordinating florals. From the sunny afternoon through the golden hour to the last rays of the day, Jennifer Garcia of Jennifer G Photography captured every stunning moment for Northwest Florida Weddings Magazine’s first styled cover shoot. ▪
