Sneaking in just under the wire to wish a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Capitol Romance’s own fearless leader and founder, Bree! From planning her own non-traditional wedding to cultivating a team of like-minded coordinators who all share the belief that there are no rules in weddings, she has taken this business such a long way. And all that while being a woman in tech, a fierce advocate for social change, and a Mom to two of the coolest kids you could ever meet. Hope your day is just as special as you are!
This shoot was inspired by my love for the Chanel Chance Cologne and Coco Chanel’s couture and elegant style. The word Chance resonates with me for several different reasons. As a breast cancer survivor, it reminds me that life is short and we should never let a chance pass us by.
We designed the shoot with Chanel’s signature colors of blush pink, white, gold and black and for a pop of bold color we added hot pink. The Barbara Kavchok, elegant and couture, gown from Soliloquy Bridal set the overall mood for the shoot perfectly.
The goal for the shoot was to merge Chanel’s timeless elegance and sophisticated style with an historic mansion. The Liriodendron Mansion with its elegant setting, timeless architecture and beautiful outdoor gardens provided the perfect backdrop and atmosphere.
My hope is that this shoot inspire brides to be themselves, bold and beautiful, take a chance and not be cliché when it comes to their wedding style.
