Lately I have been playing the 'If I were getting married' game with myself. No no, the hubs and I are fine, swear! I have to imagine that most wedding industry folks go through the same thing as I am right now. Day in and day out you're exposed to any number of gorgeous wedding accoutrements from decor to fashion, with each new inspiration drudging up a feeling of, 'oh I would love to wear that or have table decor like so' and so on. I find myself easily slipping into a world where I squirrel away ideas for my fantasy wedding.... labeled as vow renewal, but I digress! I think the biggest 'offender' for me are the stunning wedding gowns that seem to be endlessly revealed with each new incredible season. As wedding dresses are a seriously dialed up version of special event frocks, I think they are consistently the most relatable wedding element around and as such, the spotlight of today's Why It Works Wednesday!

Alice Padrul first made her presence known on SBW in the ever gorgeous Little Princess Shoot, which let's just say, captured my immediate attention. If your not familiar with Alice's work, let me give you a touch of background. Alice, born in Moscow Russia, has quite the decorated background in the world of fashion from attending some of the world's top fashion institutes to working with some of the top leaders in fashion. Like most designers, through her own career path, Alice honed in on bridal couture as her design weapon of choice. Alice's designs offer a uniquely feminine feel with a sense of flirty touch & whimsy. While Alice strives to create new collections that embody her signature look, she is also willing to work with brides on costume gowns, crafting their dream wedding gown vision together. Below is a look into Alice's 2013 Collection which is filled with French Chantilly Lace, Organza, Swarovski Crystals, & Silk Charmeuse just to name a few. All the right elements, combined with Alice Padrul's sense of design, to create the most female empowering collection.

Happy Friday! Feels like a mega TGIF right?? Ugh, very happy this week is on its way out, or at the very least on its way into 2 days of bliss. We need it over here. Big hugs to my boy Casey Fatchett for stepping up to bat for me today with a post today that...well lets be honest, we all think about: Now that I have you dear photographer, what do we do? Join Casey as he helps breakdown what to do with the between booking & wedding day. PS-Casey is a total gas & you should totally be following him on Twitter if your not already!
