Breezy Beauty: A Beach Bridal Shoot in Chicago

Held on an empty stretch of Chicago’s beachfront overlooking the windswept waters of Lake Michigan, today’s shoot showcases beauty in simplicity through Mignonette’s handmade bridal gowns, which are intricate yet not fussily so. “I wanted to do something in an airy, uncluttered location that really highlighted how quietly beautiful dresses can have just as much of an impact as showier ones,” says photographer Ashley Venerable. “Simple doesn’t have to equal plain.” Vibrant colors set off light-handed floral designs, which complemented the duo of finely detailed dresses.
