Mary's Bridal Portrait Session - Fort Worth Bridal Photography / by Felicia Johns

Fort Worth Bridal Portrait Photography at The Bass Hall and Fort Worth Botanic Gardens

We truly have a talented team here at Heart Box Weddings, and we really are blessed to get to work with the absolute best brides, grooms and families in preparation for and on wedding days! Beautiful Mary, and her handsome husband, Philip, were married this past weekend, so we are finally able to share Mary's stunning bridal portraits! I was 9 months pregnant with Kate at the time of Mary's bridal session, and went into labor exactly a week later, so our wonderful photographer, Jenna Day, shot Mary's bridal session! Jenna's attention to detail, and ability to see and create gorgeous images really shined in the photos she captured of Mary!

To say that Mary made an incredibly lovely bride is an understatement! She wore an exquisite gown of vintage Chantilly lace over a sheath of Dolce satin. Her gown fell from a cap sleeve bodice to a chapel length train in a solid length of lace and included a piece of her mother's veil sewn in at the hem, photos of that are shown at the end of this post! Hand-beaded in Barcelona, Spain, and previously worn by her oldest sister, Mary's veil continued past her gown in cathedral length. Completing her ensemble were the bride's blue satin, Manolo Blahnik shoes. Her bridal bouquet included pale blue hydrangeas, white polar, Eskimo, and majolica roses, white freesia, and pale blue delphiniums and was wrapped with her father's rosary from Jerusalem on the day of her wedding!
