On a day as potentially stressful as your wedding, I can’t imagine a more perfectly relaxed way to prepare for the day than throwing a little “getting ready brunch.” That was the concept behind today’s shoot from Emily Millay Photography and A Charming Fête, who used calming pastel tones and forever-classic gold as the color palette. We’re all positively ga-ga for the bride’s vintage robe!

From the event designer, Lisa of A Charming Fête: We wanted to capture those vulnerable moments of the bride getting ready for her big day as well as the beautiful details of a formal brunch delivered to her room. Her stunning bouquet, a blend of white peonies, cappuccino ranunculus and the palest lavender sweet pea against an heirloom gold trinket box, vintage clock collection and gorgeous jewels. The bride is clad in a gorgeous ecru lace dressing robe from the 1920s, lending the perfect peek of sexy in the most timeless fashion. This is a truly glamorous (and seriously pretty) way for the bride to begin her wedding day. There are some elegant boudoir shots included as well.

    I must say how incredibly blessed I was to have such a great team this day. I highly suggest Emily Millay Photography, A Charming Fete, MKleinman Artistry, and Lather a Salon (as if these photos weren’t enough proof!) PS – Emily is a traveling photographer.
