V – Bridal Boudoir // Jasemine Denise Photography

One of my models and good friends, V got married recently. The ceremony was small, intimate and beautiful. Before the event, V, a few amazing Queens and myself all got together to celebrate with a sleepover. The next morning, as she was getting ready, V and I shot a bridal boudoir shoot.

Makeup by: Gabbie Johnson

V and I started shooting together around the time she met Ari, her now husband. She told me in the few moments between our shoot that she just knew that was the man she was going to marry. You’ve seen Ari and V here before. They did that super cute boudoir shoot together and everyone simply fell in love with them. Now they’re married forever and I still haven’t stopped squealing.

Picture this.
It’s the morning of V’s wedding. Three girls are buzzing with excitement around her, while I’m chasing them in with the camera. We’re in the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Chicago and truth be told, V is a bit nervous. She’s not nervous about getting married. She knew that was happening. She’s nervous because she wants this to go perfect. I’m a little nervous. I chew on my lip as I step forward, camera clenched in my fingers as I say.. “Hey, Vee. You wanna take your bridal boudoir photos?”

She looks at me then and my heart stops a little. To my surprise, she smiles and says, “Yassss!” before waving her hands back and forth. Gabbie had just done her makeup, her veil is hanging loosely off of her gorgeous fresh buzz and she’s positively glowing.

I’m glad she said yes. I want to document every moment of this.

V is wearing lingerie from What Katie Didand had nothing but kind words to say about how well her lingerie fit her.

Trish Dilligaf – Canada Wedding Session Part One

This is one of the proudest moments of my young life. So proud that I couldn’t just let it all out at once. It had to be split up into two different blog posts because I simply could not contain the awesome. It’s not everyday that I can say that I flew to a different country to do a wedding. It’s not very often that you can say that you met one of your “internet friends” either. The wedding of Trish Dilligaf and Jonathon Stellmaker, now formally known as Mr. and Mrs. Stellmaker marked a milestone in my life.

I have always been both a lover of love and weddings. As a child, my father was a Wedding DJ and I’d seen a lot of first “man and wife” kisses. He would always go above and beyond, even stealing his own dances with the bride’s mom and friends. I remember at the early age of four being so impressed. I never would’ve dreamt I’d be traveling in his footsteps.

I’ve known Trish, who you guys may recognize as the boss babe behind Trish’s Hoods, for years conversing and bonding over the internet. Canada always seemed like a long shot but we didn’t care. Two flights later, there I was seated in the car of her fiance anticipating an amazing trip.

Fast forward..

We were T-Minus about three or four hours from her wedding and I had never seen a wedding party so calm. There was no hostility, or rushing around.. It was simply just joy and support for the bride’s big day.

Fast Forward again.. One hour before the wedding. Everyone was in the heat of the hustle. After the bride finished getting her makeup done, she immediately went to work helping other people. It was adorable. Trish Dilligaf - Canada Wedding Session Part One - Jasemine Denise Photography-17Trish Dilligaf - Canada Wedding Session Part One - Jasemine Denise Photography-9 Trish Dilligaf - Canada Wedding Session Part One - Jasemine Denise Photography-15 Trish Dilligaf - Canada Wedding Session Part One - Jasemine Denise Photography-16

Dreamcatchers played such a huge part in the bride’s wedding. Each bridesmaid had their very own dreamcatcher accessory. Trish Dilligaf - Canada Wedding Session Part One - Jasemine Denise Photography-22

The groom’s mother even stopped in to check up on the party. She was glowing with pride and even held the mirror while her future daughter in law put the finishing touches on her own makeup.

Then came the final part of the wedding prep. The final moments before.. The moment that the bride was getting into her gorgeous dress. The thing that I absolutely loved about attending Trish’s wedding is that she had a team of gorgeous women behind her. These women were like her sisters; each and every one of them rushing to help her get into her dress.

The icing on the top of this amazing wedding preparation was when Trish sat down in her chair and brought her official Wedding Doc Martens out.  Normally, everyone gets a fancy strappy shoe for the wedding day. Something diamond crested with a reminiscent of a Cinderella slipper. But she chose to lace up her white Doc Marten boots that she had refused to wear until her wedding day.

 

It’s officially time for Trish Dilligaf to become Mrs. Trish Stellmaker.

Part two coming soon…
