From the beautiful bright colored jewelry, to the bride’s traditional styled Saree, this shoot was inspired to showcase a Traditional and Modern South Asian Bride, both elements thrown together for a fashion-forward styled shoot. The Saree itself is symbolic of grace and modesty, and is a traditional wedding attire worn by brides, commonly made of silk and adorned with beautiful gems and embellishments. The bride’s beautiful Saree in this shoot follows the traditional dress look; she radiates in beauty looking like a queen with the beautiful attire and jewels she’s wearing.

 Salma Islam created and drew the Mehndi art, while Laura Reynolds did the model’s makeup, capturing and creating the South Asian Bridal look on her perfectly. The bridal bouquet was made by Flower Designer Kelly Dixon of Union Bloom; she also designed the centerpieces and the garland, in deep rich colors of purple, orange, and red. The decor and details created the most beautiful of backdrops, Ceviches Tapa Restaurants amazing us with the rich color walls and structures. A great wonderful thank you to JF Nodarse Photography, for delighting us with this inspirational shoot!
