This shoot was inspired by the French neoclassical architecture of the Legion of Honor itself. The Legion of honor sits high on the headlands above the Golden Gate Bridge, where the ocean spills into the bay. The dramatic columns, intricate detailing and grand sculptures inspired us to create a dreamy bridal session, complimented by the dense, dewy fog. See the full feature on Dear Gray Magazine!
Through the medium of film, Stephanie Brazzle captured each image effortlessly; giving the viewer a glimpse into the dreamlike state of our bride. The way she told our story through each image tied a common thread of classic elegance in every pose.
The stationery suite by Sarah Ann Design was comprised of soft, classic pieces with loose, ethereal script. We chose a color palette of pale, muted yellow and soft lilac to pull from the history of the Legion of Honor, and the way it managed to stand the test of time since it’s development in 1921. A hand drawn sketch of the building helped to tie in French inspired architecture.
We were honored to showcase the Daphanine bridal crown from Maggie Wu Studios. Each delicate bronze leaf was hand chosen and adorned with crystals to create this stunning accent piece.
Each moment of this shoot felt so intimate and beautiful, like stepping into a dream. From the way the fog shrouded our bride in secrecy to the movement of her dress in the breeze - we were each mesmerized by the beauty of it all as it came together.
