Romantic Bridal Inspiration | Couture Ethereal Wedding Gowns


December 12, 2020

Four couture ethereal wedding gowns, three bouquets, one rustic-chic backdrop, unlimited romantic bridal inspiration.

If you’re looking for your dream wedding gown, but unsure what style is best for you look no further. We’re here to help inspire you with four different dress styles plus complimenting accessories and florals to complete the look!

To make this shoot come to life, we teamed up with bridal gown designer, Angela Kim. Showcasing four different styles for your wedding, or elopement – all ethereal, all fashion-forward. Sure to make you look your absolute best on the happiest day of your life!

From built-in belts to modern laces, to chic prairie ruffles, your eyes will be sparkling with all the bridal gown inspiration for the bride-to-be who loves a fashion statement. The beaded-to-perfection dresses and the sheer fabric of the prairie sleeves bounced off the golden antique mirrors allowing the natural eye to view both sides of the romantic off-the-shoulder bridal frock.

Each dress has its own personality, yet every personality can admire the beauty of each design.

The rustic-chic venue with exposed brick set the tone for our collaborative styled shoot. Completing the atmosphere were vintage rentals from East West Vintage Rentals, cascading greenery with pops of muted florals by Flourish, statement pieces of jewelry by Marthaler Jewelers, bridal glam by Powder Me Pretty, and decent desserts almost too pretty to eat by 50/Fifty the Art of Dessert – all captured by Asheville Wedding, Engagement, and Lifestyle Photographer Kathy Beaver.

Sweetheart Neckline + Off -the-Shoulder

Two of the most romantic styles collide in this trend where sweetheart necklines meet off-the-shoulder
sleeves. This silhouette is flattering for all body types and adds a dose of romance to the wedding day outfit.

Modern Laces

Bring a freshness to the lace wedding dress that the modern bride will swoon over. Geometric and big bold botanical floral patterns are some of my favorites

Built-In Belts

Accessories can make or break an entire bridal look, which makes built-in belts a practical favorite.

Modern Prairie Ruffles

Add ruffle tiers for chic boho prairie wedding dresses for an added flair of elevated fashion.

Sparkles and Glitter

Soft sparkle elements were added to tulle and interwoven into lace in beautiful, intricate ways that will
make a bride dazzle.

I’m Kathy – wedding photographer, mom of 1 daughter & 2 doodles, and avid sunset watcher. Once you’ve gotten to know a little more about me, it’ll be my turn to get to know you as too!! When I work with a couple, we usually end up feeling more like old friends by the time your wedding day arrives – which means a more relaxed, enjoyable wedding day experience for everyone. And when it comes to photo style, you’ll find your photos are vibrant and classic, in true-to-life color and timeless black and white. It’s my honor to serve joyful, authentic couples who want their wedding photos to be as timeless as their vows.
