Three Distinct Glamorously Diverse Bridal Styles

For many brides, the most meaningful aspects of a wedding often get marred by having to conform to a bridal ideal that’s simply not for everyone. Personal style is celebrated so fervently in real life, but oddly it’s often discouraged when it comes to weddings. However, today’s modern brides have one thing in common: owning their personal style. With the currently growing movement that encourages individual panache to shine through on a wedding day putting the spotlight on three distinct glamorously diverse bridal styles is certainly something we could not pass up. Especially when presented in one glorious styled shoot as what South Florida industry professionals such as Maison Francis and Visual Narrative Design created with the uber talented Tracey-Ann Jarrett PhotoNotions behind the lens. Taking a cue from the modern natural aesthetic of both the architecture and the gardens of South Florida gem, the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), the transformation is breathtaking and wonderfully unique.

Three Distinct Glamorously Diverse Bridal Styles

Close your eyes and picture a typical bride. You’re probably envisioning a big white dress and an elaborate bouquet, right? Now close your eyes and picture a modern bride. The image might look a little different, but probably not as clearly-defined. That’s because when it comes to what’s de rigueur for today’s brides, the rule is that there are no rules. With that in mind and the incredibly diverse female landscape of South Florida at their fingertips, this dynamic team focused on the culturally rich area and the ethnic bridal mosaic that is ever present – a tribute to the modern day melting pot of the U.S. Each bride’s hair and makeup was done to perfection by Mia Farah Beautique and emphasizes her natural grace, carefully weaving in their unique cultural backgrounds and traditions. This stunner dares brides to think outside the box—even if it’s just a few inches outside. It is something many brides want to do, but often feel it’s more trouble than it’s worth. Most often they settle for looking like a generic bride on their wedding day, instead of truly looking like themselves. Additionally, these professionals took a cue from the modern natural aesthetic of both the architecture and the gardens that make the PAMM such a South Florida gem, recreating many of the venue’s unique aspects throughout the floral designs. Echoing the natural landscape, the backdrop with native saw palmetto fronds that were sensibly painted with strokes of gold in homage to the artworks found within the museum. The natural and minimalistic design aesthetic is jaw dropping. Dive in deeper to this gallery and relish each bride’s distinct style.

Three Distinct Glamorously Diverse Bridal Styles

Their African American bride wore a two-piece Rebecca Schoneveld combo, made up of the McKinley Skirt and the Evalyn Bodice. This non-traditional choice offered a blush ball gown tulle skirt, which had a regal yet soft feminine touch to it, and perfectly complemented the models glowing skin color. To further emphasize her look, this bride carries a striking pampas grass pageant style-bouquet with white mink protea and seeded eucalyptus, which commanded attention like the sultry-strong innocence of its bearer. The European bride wore the Daxa gown by designer Sarah Janks, a bias-cut silk charmeuse gown with a deep v-neck front and a swath of silk charmeuse cut into a cowl in the back. The gown was perfect with her simply lovely Angela Nuran shoes. For such a simple yet elegant and refined gown, they kept the florals equally as understated yet striking, pairing the silk gown with a simple clematis and millet bouquet. As opposed to the African American and Caribbean bride’s natural looks, a polished updo, sultry smokey eye makeup and impressive pearls accent her lavish yet sleek gown. Last but not least, the Caribbean bride modeled the Briana gown by designer Sarah Janks in antique ivory, a modern twist on a classic mermaid gown, with fitted bodice overlaid with lace, slimming down to tiered tulle leaf skirt panels, with delicate silver beading for a contemporary ethereal look. To accent and all the while respect this graceful and unique beauty, they kept makeup to a minimum and allowed her hair to fall loose in flowing locks all paired with the Caribbean bridal look with a bridal bouquet reminiscent of her cultural background in rich earthy tones using overflowing Eucalyptus gumnut, delicate hellebores, rich purple Loropetalum foliage and begonia leaves.
