Forget The Cake What If Marie Antoinette Were A Modern Day Bride?

romantic bridal portrait idea

Forget the cake, what if Marie Antoinette were a modern day bride? What might her big day look like? Would she have cake? or would she be cutting back on her calories? With Love by Georgie must have had these same thoughts while putting this classic yet modern shoot. We were relieved to find out that this modern Marie did not cut out the cake, in fact the gorgeous naked chocolate drizzle confection still has us drooling! 

Keep scrolling to find out what Modern Marie might wear to her wedding after party, and see what her handsome groom might be dressed in too! Oh and don't miss any of these photos we have every last one in our full gallery here!

A Modern Marie

From With Love by Georgie: I fell in love with this dress by Hopefully Romantic and felt that it had this classic yet modern Marie Antoinette feel. Once I saw Union Hill venue, I felt we had to do a styled shoot to bring this modern Marie idea to life. 

I love to find things that are original and timeless especially for this particular shoot. I also felt, that it would be fun to have a traditionally classic dress as well as a more urban sexy modern dress for the "after party." Nicolle Nish's dresses nailed that modern party feel I wanted!
