We swear we’ve had this dream before. Pretty paper goods, a white horse, flowers in our hair… It sounds like Sabina of Bliss & Chic Photography had it too because she came to us with this bridal shoot, inspired by an antique medieval revival wedding dress with a super long train that she bought at an estate sale. “It always reminded me of Genevieve out of the Arthurian legend and thought it would be great to do an ethereal and mythical shoot with a white horse!” Let’s take a gander, shall we?

With a tail that long we’re convinced this pretty horse used to be a unicorn. Can you believe that tail?

We love seeing when photographer + stylists create a reality out of a vision they had from seeing a certain color, painting, or in this case, a dress. Thanks to everyone involved!

  1. I love the bridal gowns…they’re so beautifully feminine and unique!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous photographs! Love the gowns and the setting! The light is magical! Well done!

  3. Thank you for featuring our Infinity wedding invitations from our Umi Vol. 1 album. The shoot turned out absolutely incredible… gorgeous photography and styling!

  4. It is Alyena. I am honored to be featured on your beautiful website. Thank you so much.

  5. Just like a fairy tale!!! OMG, I can’t get over that floating dress, so beautiful!

  6. Very gorgeous event. Feminine looks like divine angel with that wedding Gown.

  7. The photograpy is beautiful (particularly the last one) and the gowns are stunning. However, I question the benefit of having such young looking models promoting a product that is increasingly being purchased by older women. No offence to Alyena and Jessica, you are both beautiful – my comments are not directed at you, but more at the vision for the shoot.

    Is it a valid point? or am I just feeling sensitive because I am (or the media is telling me that I am) on the wrong side of 30?!

  8. @Lizzy Thank you so much for your comment! I really appreciate your input.

    While I agree with you that an increasing number of women are getting married later in life these days, I believe there is still a fair amount of girls marrying in their twenties.

    As far as I ‘m concerned, the key word is inspiration- I wanted this to be dreamy, mythical like something depicted on tapestry or in a painting, and I was looking for a model with very long hair. It just so happened that both Alyena and Jessica were ideal matches, since they both embodied a notion of innocence, which was essential to my vision.

    I wanted to create a beautiful vision of spring, it was not my intention to hurt anyone’s feelings. I apologize if you were offended!
    There is a lot to be said about political correctness in art and how our society worships youth, I am totally with you on that!
    You just planted an idea for an elaborate blog post, thank you Lizzie! Stay tuned!

    Please don’t let ANYONE ever fool you that there is a “wrong” side of 30! I’m over 40, have a 2 year old daughter and have never felt better!!!!

    XO Sabina

  9. Absolutely beautiful!!!!!

  10. So in love with that headpiece… and that last picture = breathtaking!

  11. Al di fuori della conferenza, la polizia anti-sommossa si sono scontrati con i dimostranti che protestavano sulla guerra, il cambiamento climatico e una vasta gamma di altre questioni.Testimoni hanno detto che avevano un po ‘di sangue rigavano i loro volti. Polizia è stata vista portando alcune Hogan persone fuori dalla scena.La marcia di protesta per Chicago era stato in gran parte pacifica fino alla fine, quando un piccolo gruppo di manifestanti ha cercato di sfondare le linee della polizia e raggiungere il centro congressi sul lago dove il summit si svolge.

  12. These photos took my breath away completely. Gorgeous, gorgeous work–that gown is unreal! (Isn’t it Guinevere, not Genevieve?)

  13. Excellent points. Sturdy arguments. Keep up the great work.
