Modern, confident, bold and edgy — what better way to describe MUSE, a highly styled, fashion-focused editorial tucked within the pages of the Brides of Austin 5th anniversary issue! The lovely Mint Photography captured each bridal look in a vogue, high fashion-esque style. The gowns stole the show, of course, with structured contemporary numbers from Julian GoldMoonlight and MossBeatitude Bridal Boutique, a sultry lace design from Blush Bridal Lounge and one from Unbridaled covered in the most dreamy metallic beading. Bricolage Curated Florals created unique designs to complement but not overpower each look, with lavender, blush and other pastel tones livening up the sleek scene at Hotel Van Zandt in downtown Austin. Accessorizing with pizazz, fine jewelry by Nicole Mera and bold hair and makeup from Gloss Beauty Boutique completed the looks beautifully. Be sure to watch the video highlight reel from The Bird and The Bear to see more gorgeous shots and behind the scenes captures, and find more modern bridal fashion tips sprinkled throughout the editorial within this celebratory issue! Cheers!

brides of austin 5th anniversary cover

After a weeklong countdown, we are THRILLED to unveil the Brides of Austin 5th anniversary cover! Captured by the oh-so-talented Kelly Scogin of Mint Photography, this image from our fashion editorial, titled MUSE, was the perfect choice for this celebratory issue. The model bride’s seriously glamorous Reem Acra ball gown from Julian Gold was juxtaposed with edgy styling thanks to tousled clipped hair and iridescent makeup by Gloss Beauty Boutique and a luxe layered jewelry look with pieces from Nicole Mera creating an oh-so-Austin look worthy of a celebratory cover. Bricolage Curated Florals‘ non-traditional, over-flowing bouquet of furry fronds and wine- and lavender-hued blooms completed the unique look set at the iconic metallic ikat printed walls of Hotel Van Zandt. This image is truly one for the books.

Congrats to Kelly on snagging her second Brides of Austin cover! Stay tuned to see the full gown shoot featuring even more fashion-forward gowns from Moonlight and MossBeatitude Bridal BoutiqueBlush Bridal Lounge and Unbridaled and the behind the scenes video from The Bird and The Bear – we promise you won’t want to miss it!
