Devon and Travis at Serra Plaza Bridal Suite

 Serra Plaza in San juan Capistano
 Flowers by French Buckets
 Hair: Diego Ortega
 Make up: Lisa O'Connor
 Photography: Natahanial Kam
I chose Devon a Manual Mota, Pronovias bridal gown specifically for the suite.  The lace, empire waist gown plays well with the suites gray flooring and silver mirrored accents.  I wanted Devon to have an Audrey Hepburn feeling, via My Fair Lady. She is wearing a vintage crown and Antique 1940's earrings from my private collection.  Travis is wearing a classic black Tux.

This is a shoot from November of last year... The brides Marisa gown originally had a blue satin sash but was changed to a pink sash because blue is seen as bad luck.
