On a recent inspiration shoot with the Gown Collective, I fell in love with this sexy little gown by Nicole Miller that’d make an absolutely wonderful dress for an elopement in Europe! Not only is the Gown Collective an adorable dress shop (conveniently located in the Westside Provisions District so you can try on dresses and have Jeni’s Ice Cream after!) but I love that you can find your dream gown and buy it right off the rack, making it the perfect choice for elopements or destination weddings!
Paired together with a modern braid and soft curls, this look is sexy, romantic and fun! We posed the lovely Kaitlin on a colorful patterned wall that reminded me of the tiles found all over Lisbon, Portugal, and while editing the images, my idea for this blog post came to life! The beautiful textures and laid back style of this gown pairs well with the understated elegance of Portugal’s capital city, and the sexy silhouette looks gorgeous not only with the old world architecture but also the beauty of nearby Cascais’ rocky coast! Enjoy this fun peek at my interpretation on a bridal look for Portugal!
