Le San Michele bridal session in Austin

classic bird cage veil

With an all-lace Maggie Sottero dress, red bow heels, a tulle birdcage veil (made by mom), sweet short bob cut and an amazing little venue like Le San Michele, why wouldn’t you want to book your wedding photographer to also capture some model-esque photos of you and the dress? Love the idea. Love the photos by Kristi Wright Photography and simply adore bride-to-be, Kelsey, even if she thinks she’s 7 inches too short to take on modeling as a career.

From Kelsey: I’m very simple and I wanted to look like me. It’s my wedding day, so I wanted to make sure that I felt totally comfortable! When it came to the dress I wanted something that I could wear and not let wear me. I have a petite frame, so big tulle skirts and ruffles were out. The lace of the dress had the detail I wanted without being too over the top. The silhouette took my 5 foot 3 inches up a bit! In my mind it was absolutely perfect! I wanted fun shoes because they show the playful teacher side of me. As far as my hair and veil goes, I wanted something simple yet unique. I don’t like traditional veils, but I don’t like net birdcages either, so my mom made the tulle birdcage and it was perfect!

  1. So excited to see these on your blog! Thank you for the beautiful feature! http://t.co/UwjTtUMG via @100layercake

  2. Thank you so much for the feature. Kelsey was a dream to photograph and Le San Michele, is one of the little secrets when it comes to Austin wedding venues!

  3. Nice Clicks from this amazing photographer. The venue is beautiful and above all the Bride looks gorgeous with that amazing wedding gown. I must show it to my daughter who stays in the US. She loves the christian wedding dress and such wedding sessions.

  4. So unique and beautiful, love everything about this!

  5. Glad to see this!

  6. Beautiful wedding and amazing pictures!

  7. Gorgeous photos. I love the veil. My Mum and I have been trying to make a tulle birdcage and this is far and away the nicest we have seen. I don’t suppose you know how it was made/attached – was it on a hair comb? It’s fabulous!

  8. I am actually the bride in these pictures, so thank you all for the sweet comments. My mom attached the bid cage veil to a clear comb and then the broach was connected to that. It was actually fairly simple.
