If you’ve been following Sweet Violet Bride for any length of time you know that we don’t feature too many bridals, but when this one came across my screen I could not resist. Jamie is not only a beautiful bride but this portrait session by Matthew Irving Photography embodies exactly what the Sweet Violet Bride is all about. She is sweet, kind, and at one with the natural world. She is strong yet soft, curious and peaceful. Plus, she has amazing natural style! Jaimie chose to use her bridal hairpiece by Jannie Baltzer as the focal point of the shoot. The delicate beading and floral design was the perfect complement to the natural elements of the surrounding meadows of Colorado’s foothills and Rocky Mountains. Tessa Mckillop, a talented Denver hairstylist created a romantic look for Jaimie’s tresses, which highlighted the hairpiece perfectly.
From the Photographer:
Jaimie began in her bridal shower dress – a dress she had found at a vintage shop some time before her wedding, not knowing when she’d get the chance to wear such a dress. She was taken by its flawless detailing and that it happened to fit her perfectly! It turned out to be the perfect little white dress for her bridal shower. As a matter of fact, it was originally a wedding dress! It also turned out to be the perfect dress for our vintage-whimsy-chic bridal portraits. The floral stitching and handcrafted details on this ivory gown were gorgeous and the sheer cotton dreamily caught the evening light.
As the sun began to set behind Colorado’s purple peaks, Jaimie changed into a crocheted maxi, creating an ethereal silhouette, which again complimented her wedding day hairpiece. In this lovely dress, she looked as if she belonged in the glistening woods and amongst the white flowered meadow. Jaimie’s vintage aesthetic, attention to detail, and her natural outer and inner beauty made capturing these whimsical photographs a piece of cake.
