We are SO excited to share this post! Our wonderful former wedding client Susan is opening a new bridal boutique called Gilded Bridal in the Glenwood South neighborhood on Boylan Ave. in downtown Raleigh. AND IT’S GOING TO BE FABULOUS. We think it will really offer something new and different in the local wedding dress department, and we are thrilled that we got to play a part in it! This shoot was to get good promo pictures to help with the branding and the website. All of the dresses and accessories in this shoot will be available, plus a ton more. And we can testify to the fact that Susan has great taste, so. :) HUGE THANK-YOUS GO OUT TO:
