“The Swan,” - where opulence and wild beauty collide. This ultra-romantic editorial captured by North Carolina wedding photographer MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY was hosted by florist and stylist extraordinaire JANNA BROWN DESIGN. Inspired by the juxtaposition of fierceness and femininity found spilling out of the pages of Vogue, this editorial balanced delicate, wild blooms and ethereal fabrics with immense architecture, powerful posing, and the intensity between the couple and the lens.
Janna tells us, "Our bride donned an impressive gown by DANA HAREL DESIGN, with a cascading train and a sheer bustier, adorned with a plethora of delicate hand-sewn flower petals. She carried a bouquet composed of wild jasmine, elaeagnus, and garden roses finished with trailing silk ribbon. Our table details mimicked the bride and her bouquet: soft cream fabrics paired with untamed florals. TARA SPENCER created vellum menus which sat atop each place setting, while the flowers nestled into a bed of cream fabrics."
