On Location: Fall 2017 Melissa Sweet Photo Shoot

A lush garden setting featuring romantic wedding dresses for the ethereal bride.

Each season, our creative team picks a new destination as the backdrop for the beautiful images you see on our website, social media, in our advertising and here on our blog! For fall? Mexico! We’re sharing a first look at our most recent campaign shoot, and more importantly, our newest collection of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. We started the series with classic wedding dress from the David’s Bridal Collection followed by casual wedding dresses featured in a faux destination wedding. Then we shared an intimate look at dramatic Galina Signature wedding dresses, and we’re rounding out this portion of the series with romantic wedding dresses from the Melissa Sweet collection.

Our Melissa Sweet bride is thoughtful, poetic and a true romantic.  We imagined her wedding on an enchanting garden estate surrounded by her closest friends and family. Hacienda Petac welcomed us with its historic charm and spellbinding natural environment.   The artisanal and vintage-inspired details of each Melissa Sweet gown sparkled in the late afternoon sunlight.

Hacienda Petac’s grounds’ winding trails and lush greenery made it feel like a secret garden.

The bride’s first look features a lace A-line weding dress with floral applique, hand beading and a soft blush underlay, which gives the dress a warm glow.  A lace cathedral veil with scalloped trim adds an heirloom quality to the look.

Next, the bride wears a linear lace wedding dress with sheer long sleeves and a deep V neck.  Paired with an airy raw edge cathedral veil and vintage inspired accessories, the bride looks effortlessly elegant.

To complement the romantic wedding dresses, bridesmaids wear romantic bridesmaid dresses with soft flowy silhouettes and feminine details, like lace and ruffles. Delicate pearl headbands add a touch of whimsy.

The Fall 2017 Melissa Sweet photo shoot was especially fun because it featured a full bridal party – bride and groom, bridesmaids, groomsman, Mother of the Bride and even two adorable flower girls!

In the final scene, we created a family-style table setting.  Twinkle lights and woven lanterns added to the magical mood.  The bride wears a strapless tiered chiffon A-line wedding dress with sequinned lace bodice and beautiful movement – perfect for dancing the night away!
