Simple and Natural Bridal Boudoir Session - Wedding Sparrow | Best Wedding Blog | Wedding Ideas


There is something magical about the normally mundane tasks a bride will partake in the day of her wedding. We love the way film photographer Chris Isham Photography captured the intimate and quiet moments, perfectly portraying the calm before the storm. We can feel both ends of her emotions: the anticipation to meet her love at the end of the aisle and the ultimate calm she feels knowing he will be there. Oh, and the Forage and Fleur florals... swoon...

From Marianne at RiverOaks Charleston: "On her wedding day in her lifelong home she rises at the first break of dawn. Clothed in her grandmother's own wedding day robe she quietly bathes. Like the water, the memories flow. She warms herself by the fire asking God to be present in this day, yet soon the coffee is gone and the morning fleeting. In a beautiful script, she vows her forever love to the one who only hours away will become her husband. Outside her childhood home is quickly becoming a venue and the window's glass restrains her curiosity. Yet, the thoughtful and tom-boyish explorer ventures out dressed and covered in her mother's french veil. Darting quickly along the open pond she shelters herself hugging the aged walls that have held her close since birth. Risking notice as guests arrive she retreats inside. Shortly with her artfully tended bouquet in hand she gracefully approaches the stone gates. Passing through them the little girl from home fades with each step as a beautiful woman now a bride. Approaching the altar she speaks to her husband - to love and commit herself to him alone until death do them part. Soon following at the same table her family has gathered for meals upon meals an intimate dinner celebration ensues. In a blink of an eye her husband is calling her to a dance and the little girl gives a final twirl. Darkness falls and as a wife she leaves her home for their own forever story."
