Dusty Blue Beauty: Sandy Elberta Bridals

If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of this wedding season, it’s the colorful gown trend. From the burgundy red Vera Wang gown you can spot in our glossy pages this year, to the stunning, hand-painted skirts that were on display at our annual White Party, a rainbow of wedding looks have blessed our feeds, mixing up the bridal beauty game in the process.

This dusty blue number by Janay Marie is no exception, and boy does it have our hearts all aflutter!

Jessa Etheridge and Amanda Wood were the masterminds behind this dreamy shoot, and that serene, cool blue tone was at the centerfold of their inspiration.  The hue forms the perfect complement to the white rocks and sagebrush vibes in the desert region of Elberta, Utah, and according to Etheridge, that was exactly the tone they were looking to set for the project.

Not wanting to take any focus away from the color in the gown, the team enlisted Jessa Bergstrom of Lennox Flora to create the perfect bouquet for the look. And didn’t she deliver: a stunning bohemian piece with wonderful greenery and white floral, with just the right amount of blush to make the bouquet pop off the page.

Hair and makeup wizard Laura Barton, who specializes in bridal looks and is a longtime friend of the team, lent her skills as well, putting the icing atop this already breathtaking shoot, making the bride an absolute vision. The couple is the perfect match: in chemistry, looks and love! We are particularly loving the obviously practiced and perfected posing technique that this team brought to the table. No basic canned stances here, just pure true love magic.
