Once upon a time… the loveliest bridal inspiration from Charlotte, N.C. ended up on MY desk. What a darling thing photographed by Crystal Stokes Photography!

Not only does this bridal styling incorporate so many of my must-haves for bridal perfection (shimmering gold, lace wedding gowns, swirling white calligraphy, chic vintage furniture pieces…), but it brings with it the magic of fairytales.

For every bride, whether you spent countless girlhood hours spinning in circles in a princess costume or not, today’s bridal inspiration is just unmissable!

Wedding bells for Denny Hamlin...? Okay, maybe not just yet.

But new mom and Hamlin's longtime girlfriend Jordan Fish (pictured) played bride for a day on the set of this fabulous inspiration shoot with Crystal Stokes Photography at Hayden Olivia Bridal.
