I had always been curious about this particular venue, so when Nicole of Millennium Moments Studio asked if we would like to participate in a styled shoot at Stan Mansion, my answer was an enthusiastic "YES"! Truth be told, this venue is far more ornate and traditional than most of the locations that our brides tend to book, and I think that's what had me so interested- it was something "new".
In these images our bride model, Kayla, wears an elegant gown to perfectly compliment the regal setting and as you can probably expect- we choose an effortless beauty vibe as a bit of a juxtaposition to keep everything from feeling too serious.
Kayla's sultry makeup look complete with a plum smokey eye, has a dewey finish which keeps her from looking too done up. Her slightly messy low chignon hair style would go just as great in a boho look- but in this shoot brings the perfect touch of softness.
I love how this shoot is an example of the possibilities available to Brides when it comes to mixing styles. Simply put; you just don't need to obsess over matching every little detail perfectly. There is beauty in the unexpected!
You know I geek out over the little details... even the ones that have nothing to do with hair and makeup.
I couldn't think of a better way to finish this story. Can you?
