The final look is captivating and mysterious. Shes the bride who moves like a dance through crowds of people, gazing through everyone she passes. She’s gorgeous, adorned by finest and wears it all so effortlessly. Styled by Jayna Merie, a bridal makeup artist, each detail was carefully selected. From the incredible outfit from Sunny’s Bridal and the accessories by Jiji, to the gold foiled tips of her nails by Glossy Nails, everything came together perfectly to bring the vision to life. For hair and makeup, Jayna Merie and her assistant, Rikki went with an understated face and tussled, touchable looking hair. The focus was meant to be the brides natural beauty.

About the editorial shoot

This editorial shoot was held at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street to celebrate the first JW Marriott in Tampa as well as the 100th JW property worldwide. We wanted to touch on the traditional style of a Southeast Asian wedding, while bringing in a more modern style. The centerpieces were a mix of low gold vases with lots of florals and greenery and clear vases with a singular flower. To incorporate the Southeast Asian style into the design, we brought in gold accents throughout the tableware.

About the editorial shoot

A Romantic Editorial Session at the Conservatory Garden in Central Park. Our bride was the epitome of a graceful Victorian bride roaming the charming gardens in NYC's Central Park. This secluded oasis is paradise for this modern 21st century city bride. She's transformed in time as she enters the iconic Vanderbilt Gate. She pauses on the steps down to take a view of the gardens from up above. Her joy is contagious. A sight for sore eyes. The whole world stops and stares for awhile. She is all that matters.

About the editorial shoot

Nicole + Andrew loved everything about their wedding day except for their photos. Now, years later, with their first baby turning one and baby number two on the way, they wanted to capture their current season of life and love. Pulling threads of inspiration from their own wedding and weaving in hints of Regency-era flair their wedding day redo was absolute perfection. The beautiful blend of modern and old world charm invokes an understated sense of refined elegance and luxury.
