Opulent affairs need to come around a little more often because our luxe bridal fashion editorial boasts some of the most beautiful gowns on the market! Captured by Megan Kay Photography and Reverent Wedding Films, An Opulent Affair marks a collection of curated statement gowns with a timeless, yet artful feel to them, fit for garden parties a la our favorite winter binge, Bridgerton of course. With its lavish, stately design, Bingham House served as a breathtaking backdrop for the romantic looks from various local bridal shops that played out (see credits below), each styled with striking jewelry pieces from L’unique Diamonds and Fine Jewelry as well as effortlessly beautiful hair and makeup styled by artists at Brite Beauty. Our bride models alongside her dashing groom clad in menswear from Generation Tux in various scenes around the venue property – including the mansion porch and underneath a lush floral altar by Something Pretty Floral that was absolutely dreamlike in design.
For a behind-the-scenes peek at this luxe Regencycore bridal fashion editorial, see the highlights of An Opulent Affair as captured by Reverent Wedding Films here, and keep reading for a note from Brite Beauty about how each stunning bridal beauty look was created. Cheers!
StarDust Celebrations – Lazaro “LZ3961”
The Lazaro is a stunning, sequin embroidered trumpet gown with tulle overskirt and ballerina neckline with open back. Its dainty, thin strap at shoulder, chenille ribbon at natural waist and detachable tulle chapel train make this gown so versatile no matter what your style.
From Marsi with Brite Beauty: “The first look was designed to be playful and femininity at its highest level. The skin got a neutral peachy glow as well as the lips. Nothing says fresh and playful like peachy and pink tones washed over the skin. Minimal eyeshadow maintained the fresh awakening look perfect for the floral scenery. I kept the hair down in loose waves to match the sophisticated simplicity of the dress. Use Kenra styling products I shaped the waves and finished off the look with a bold headband adorned with pearls.”
Elizabeth Scott Bridal – Allure Bridals “Micah” Gown
With lace all over and so many lovely features, this gown is definitely a choice for romantics. Feminine bows and puffed off-shoulder sleeves are such gorgeous additions to the Micah gown that holds an air of elegance while looking oh-so-effortless.
From Marsi with Brite Beauty: “A look doesn’t only showcase makeup, it brings to life all those involved. Hair, styling, the dress, jewelry…it’s a vibe. For the second look’s makeup I designed a subtle smokey eye, because the hair was pulled back a little from the face. The casual elegance of the dress lended itself to a pulled back, effortless half up style. Using Kenra styling products, I lifted the crown and pinned back into soft waves.”
Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon – Allison Webb Overlay + Sareh Nouri Gown
Infusing a subtle nod to the sixties, this haute, high-neck wedding gown is flawless with a sheath silhouette covered in a sheer, white-feathered overlay. This bridal fashion combo is the life of the party and we only warn that you might not want to take it off.
From Marsi with Brite Beauty: “I loved the subtle nod to the sixties the third dress had and paired beautifully with this neutral mauve color palette. MAC Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette was used to create dimension on matte perfected skin. A gorgeous juxtaposition to the flair of the dress. For this look, a bridal bun created from a two strand twist. To create the base, I used a 1” curling iron first, then lightly teased the hair using Kenra volume burst before pulling it into a low updo. I used Moroccan texture clay to bring out pieces and create texture within the style.”
Bridal Boutique – Martina Liana “1266” Style
An edgy twist to minimalist design, this dress really brings the drama with a strapless neckline and center plunge–contrasted with a sheer back panel and curved boning for a flattering shape. The signature seaming contours the silhouette as the full flare to the skirt creates a fun moment of grandeur. Last but not least, the detachable high-volume puffed sleeves and optional train add unexpected, modern textures to this sleek bridal fashion design for a lasting impression that will still stand the test of time.
From Marsi with Brite Beauty: “The fourth dress was literally fit for a queen! Healthy glowing skin achieved by using Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in Magnificence, soft warm pink tones around the eyes paired with a regal red lip using MAC Lip Mix in Crimson. Similar to look three, yet this time I finessed the bun to be refined and smoother in texture. I used the Kenra working spray to set and hold the style.”
