Last year, I had the opportunity to share a meaningful photo shoot with some incredible women here in Orlando about real women’s bodies and gorgeous wedding gowns. This message was one that resonates with me because I feel like all bodies should be celebrated fully, especially on the biggest day of your life.
Now that Nate and I are going to be married in less than 2 months (holy cow), this year’s shoot had all the more meaning behind it. We all had such a blast trying on gowns, shoes, and accessories while jamming out to the DJ’s music and chowing down on some of the best finger foods I’ve ever had (from Wyndham Grand).
It’s always a good time with the ladies at Solutions Bridal, I feel so lucky to have met then when we moved down here. The shoot seemed more like an all-girls party where we get to play dress up (every bloggers dream!).
My gown, the Margauex by Ines Di Santo was an elegant showstopper with gorgeous detailing in the back to round out the perfect curve-hugging fit from behind. Not one to normally “flaunt my curves”, I was glad I took the chance on a gown so different from my usual taste!
Check out the video of the shoot!
