Today we are so excited to share this totally fierce bridal style inspiration shoot brought to us by Andrea Eppolito Events and Adam Trujillo Photography! Seriously, that is one sexy bride! The thing that struck me most about this particular photo shoot is the way it completely celebrates the bride’s personal style. So many women feel the need to modestly cover up or hide their body art to be “wedding appropriate”. Well, here at Junebug we are all for celebrating your own beauty, not what other people feel you should look like on your wedding day. Your wedding is such special moment in your life and you deserve to celebrate everything that you are. Be true to yourself and find a bridal style that accentuates the real you!
Here are few words from Andrea Eppolito, owner and lead designer of Andrea Eppolito Events on her experience with helping couples navigate this particular obstacle…
The question of what to do with your tattoos on your wedding day always is somewhat surprising to me. I am forever telling my couples to be themselves, to infuse their personality and history into their wedding and to focus on what makes them who they are. The truth is, is that most tattoos are an expression of one’s self that literally becomes a part of who they are in a way few other art forms do. And yet when it comes to weddings, there is almost always the question of whether or not to cover up the bride’s body art.
I mean, just look at these photos! Could international pin-up model and all around knockout Sabina Kelley look any more amazing than she does right now? When I look at these photos I don’t just see her tattoos. I see a bride, in all of her beauty and graceful elegance. Her work only heightens who she is, enhancing her beauty not taking from it.
If wearing a traditional white wedding dress really isn’t really your style, Vera Wang‘s black and nude Josephine wedding dress makes for a stunning alternative. Here is why Andrea Eppolito loves it so much…
This is the perfect bride for this bold design by Vera Wang. Crafted in the same sumptuous fabrics and with the icon cut that Vera is so famous for, this black and nude gown celebrates the classic form of a wedding dress with the drama and elegance that black brings to just about everything it touches! A bridal style that is certainly not for the faint of heart!
