Le San Michele bridal session in Austin

October 5, 2012

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!
