Behind the Scenes at the Cover Shoots

They say “A picture is worth a thousand words,” but when working on the covers for this issue, we’d like to modify that to: “A dress is worth a thousand words.” We had wonderful models, fantastic florals and great decor, but what really made those images sing were the gowns. Here they are: the shining stars of our cover shoots.

This gown that shows the colorful side of weddings­­—and the sublimely elegant side as well. Mariée Bridal loaned us this spectacular Ian Stuart gown for our cover shoot at The Four Seasons Resort, Scottsdale. Stuart’s strapless “Papillon” gown is couture all the way, with petal decorations that adorn the gown, matching jacket and veil.

Stealing the show at our outdoor shoot at Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens, the Rivini “Marisela” gown shows off the romantic side of bridal gowns. Schaffer’s brought us this feminine gown which features a sheer boat-neck and ¾ length sleeves, atop a demure sweetheart neckline. The dreamy overlay of organza petals, finely-beaded tulle crystals and sequins is finished with a crystal beaded belt.
