Lancaster City Bridal Intimate Session

Last winter our best friend Talitha Collado of Collado Cosmetic Lab and I partnered together to create a bridal intimate session marathon at one of the most popular airbnb’s in Downtown Lancaster – Renew on Walnut! This house was remodeled from top to bottom in the most dreamy and romantic way! Lancaster City is our home and over the years it has been transforming into the “it” scene for artists, eateries, and culture! So it was just a given that we would host our first event here!

“There is nothing prettier in the whole wide world as a girl with every breath she takes.” – Atticus

Our other boss babe friend, Shayla Henry of Tulips and Twine, provided us with our floral installations and lets just say…WOW! It’s absolutely amazing how florals can just elevate a session into something a little more editorial and dreamy. Speaking of dreamy and sophisticated designs… Domenica Domenica, world renowned couture designer, sent us her stylings of her luxurious bridal robes for our brides to wear during their session. We got the sizes of each bride and sent them to Domenica and she sent us the correct sizes for everyone in the designs that best matched our color palette.

We had such a blast at this event and just made for an incredible girls day of empowering and pampering all the women involved! And the first photo featured below was even featured by BRIDES MAGAZINE! So without further delay, here’s our favorites from our first session of the day from our real life bride getting married Fall of 2020!
