I completely understand why so many couples opt to get married during spring. The season has an incomparable magic—a time of vibrancy, growth, renewal, and new beginnings.
Femininity and springtime share a beautiful correlation. Both represent fertility, nurturing, and growth. Just like spring, the divine feminine in each bride evokes beautiful new beginnings—a blossoming of love.
I’ve been fortunate enough to capture the ‘spring’ of countless love stories. Each unique wedding is a testament to love’s transformative power. And at the heart of many weddings is the bride—radiating beauty and possibility in her carefully selected spring wedding gown, effortlessly embodying the divine feminine.
As we immerse ourselves in this glorious spring season, let’s celebrate the divine feminine in every bride. The strength, grace, creativity, and love she embodies are the very essence of spring—the promise of new beginnings, the joy of love blooming.
Throughout the years, I’ve photographed a myriad of spring wedding gowns that took my breath away. Each dress showcases the designer’s vision and perfectly encapsulates the bride’s personality and unique expression of herself.
I can’t wait to share some of my favorite spring wedding gowns, each telling a special story.
Kate Upton’s Custom Valentino Gown
Drawing inspiration from the exquisite surroundings of Tuscany, Kate Upton chose to work with Valentino’s design house in Italy for her Italian destination wedding.
Her wedding gown, crafted from intricate chantilly lace, showcased a delicate crisscross detail at the bust and was further complemented by long, lace sleeves.
The dress’s traditional elegance resonated seamlessly with the idyllic surroundings. With its intricate floral detailing, her custom couture Valentino wedding gown captures the essence of spring.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s Vintage Dior Legacy
Steeped in the rich tapestry of family heritage and enduring love, this 1953 Christian Dior wedding gown was originally worn by Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s grandmother, a sister to JFK, on her own wedding day.
Nearly seven decades later, in 2020, it found a second life, gracefully adorning her granddaughter of the same iconic name.
Designed by Christian Dior himself, the passage of time had softened its hue to a gentle, candlelit ivory and left behind a few small marks of its journey. Nonetheless, under the careful hands of the Ever After team, the gown was beautifully restored and tailored to fit Eunice flawlessly.
A tribute to love, lineage, and timeless fashion, this remarkable gown stands out as one of the most poignant and unforgettable pieces I’ve had the privilege to photograph.
Like spring, this heirloom wedding gown encapsulates a rebirth.
Draped in Custom Haute Couture Chanel
Tori wore a gorgeous custom haute couture Chanel wedding gown, designed in the heart of Paris at Chanel’s headquarters.
The gown, with its playful bows, unique waistline, and veil artfully dotted with delicate flowers, beautifully captures the essence of spring’s feminine charm.
Seeing such a carefully crafted piece of art as a wedding gown is truly a testament to the skill and vision involved in its creation.
A Custom Carolina Herrera Gown for The Style Bungalow
Stephanie Hill of The Style Bungalow donned this custom Carolina Herrera gown, an exquisite piece that originally began as a much simpler design.
The bride, possessing a distinct vision and a passion for individuality, embraced the opportunity to collaborate with the revered team at Ever After Miami.
The gown was transformed through meticulous alterations and careful attention to detail, blossoming into a one-of-a-kind work of art.
Adorned with delicate details that mirror the fresh vibrancy of spring, this dress is a testament to the magic that unfolds when personal vision meets skilled craftsmanship.
A Vivienne Westwood Couture Fairytale
If you pay attention to the fairytales, they tend to take place in spring. With its billowing sleeves and prominent floral lace pattern, this custom gown is one for the storybooks.
Designed by Vivienne Westwood Couture, this bespoke wedding dress is showcased beneath a 19th-century tiara dating back to 1880.
This harmonious union of elegance and history was effortlessly brought to life by the House of Kirschner amidst the enchanting backdrop of Desierto de Los Leones National Park, a natural haven on the outskirts of Mexico City.
Monique Lhuillier’s Lily of the Valley
Does the gown shape the wedding, or does the wedding shape the gown?
've spent the past decade capturing love and chasing beauty across the globe, and I believe every story like yours is different and special, and deserves to be told exceptionally.
Drawing on years of experience in the fashion and editorial photography industry, my photographs are graceful, honest and boldly natural, while completely intentional. Whether it’s the opportunity to narrate the retelling of once-in-a-lifetime wedding days, or the ability to communicate issues of global importance, or all the stories in between, I look at photography as the method by which I get to leave the world a little better than I found it.
