Wedding designers Galia Lahav and Cassandra Renee are known for ultra modern, daring, and luxurious gowns. But this breathtaking shoot by Sephory Photography and BWedding Invitations proves that they can exude elegance.

Beige, gold, and hints of greenery make for a backdrop of classic colors and reflect the natural beauty of morning light. If the styles are couture, the mood is relaxed and natural. A bathtub filled with flower petals and a white terry cloth robe evoke pre-ceremony self care.

What’s so striking about this shoot is how elegance meets ultra modernity. The bride is beautifully confident lounging an ultra-sheer spiderweb lace wedding gown with a high neck and side cut outs.

In a second look, the bride looks poses before a gold-embellished mirror and marble fireplace. Old-world elegance meets modern confidence with a messy updo, simple drop earrings, and a heavily-embroidered mermaid dress with a beaded plunging neckline and geometric pattern.

Make no mistake, though: the bride herself is central to this shoot, with an unflinching gaze, nude-tone makeup, and a gold leaf headband. Whether she is posing among sheer curtains, applying makeup, or simply relaxing at the Windsor Hotel, this morning is all her own
