Hey everyone! It’s Chris here, manager of Beauty Within Bridal. I have been beyond excited to share these photos from our most recent styled shoot. I know I say this after every shoot, but this one is seriously my FAVORITE! The vendors involved really brought a unique, bright, and fun wedding vision to life!

So, without further ado, I am thrilled to highlight some details from this shoot & share photos of our Angelina dress in action! Make sure to check out the full vendor list at the very bottom of this post - give each vendor a follow on social media and reach out to them for your wedding needs!


The Dress

This shoot featured one of my favorite gowns in the shop - the Angelina dress by our Australian designer, Goddess By Nature. The thing that draws me, and so many of my brides, to this dress is the way it so perfectly combines sexy and simple! It's V neckline and figure hugging silhouette show off all the right curves, without being too much. This dress has no beading, no sparkle, no layers of tulle - the only thing this dress is trying to highlight is the beauty of the bride that is wearing it!

Another aspect of the Angelina to highlight is the intricate floral lace that covers the whole gown and extends all the way to it's train. There is really nothing like this lace - it’s dainty, unique, and timeless! Under this layer of lace, there is a stretchy and comfortable jersey fabric that can come in ivory, blush, champagne, dusty rose, and nude! Thus, a bride can easily make the Angelina her own by changing the colors, adding a leg slit, or shortening the train length.

However, one of the most popular features of this gown is it’s jaw dropping open back with adjustable crisscross straps. This back is so unique and looks beautiful at outdoor weddings! Angelina is certainly a hit among my beach, boho, and backyard brides because it’s just the right amount of casual without compromising the beauty of a real wedding dress.

So, with all that being said, Angelina is a fabulous gown and it looked out of this world stunning on our model for this shoot.


The Bridal Look

Our gorgeous model was rocking a low up-do by J Marvin Hair, with a few loose curls let out to frame the face. I am a big fan of this hairstyle with this dress, specifically, because you don’t have any hair blocking the crisscross back. I always tell my brides - if you get a dress with a unique back, pretty straps, or a high neckline, Wear an up-do to show off those features of the dress! Also, as I stated before the Angelina gown is really well suited for outdoor weddings, and I think an updo hairstyle is as well! Brides are able to have a good time outside and still look flawless with their hair up!

The bridal make up for this shoot was done by Make-Up By Adie. I loved that the look was simple and romantic, just like this dress. Our model’s face looked radiant and her natural beauty was able to shine through. This make up was not too much but not too little - it was just what was needed to finish out the bridal look!

The Scene

Y’ALL. I will start by saying this scenery is to. die. for. This shoot was hosted at La Venture Grove, right here in northeast Florida. This venue is very new and I can’t get enough of the historic home and magical tree coverage.

My favorite thing about this entire shoot, however, was all of the ORANGES! I love the idea of getting married in an orange grove and I love the way our vendors incorporated oranges into every aspect of the scenery. For the Florida bride who wants to highlight her tropical roots, but does not want to get married on the beach, this venue is a great option!

The Details

As I have said, the vendors absolutely nailed the Florida Orange theme! From the orange and white cake by Sweets by Staci, to the full table settings by Dish It Out, to the breathtaking florals by the ever fabulous Let Destiny Design - every little detail was dreamy! Check out the photos below and you can drool over everything with me.

Also, I can’t collaborate with the Unbridled Bar and not note how cool they are! A bar on wheels is the perfect way to take your cocktail hour to the next level. Their themed cocktails are genius and their set up is let something out of a dream - especially when Let Destiny Designs adds gorgeous florals!
