Hayley Paige bridal gown

November 7, 2016

Although technically we’re closer to winter than fall, this shoot takes me back to a golden evening in September.  This spectacular Hayley Paige bridal gown from Cameo & Cufflinks made my jaw drop.  I can’t decide which I love more…the crisscross cut-out detailing or the soft, flowing skirt.  The chandelier earrings (also from Cameo & Cufflinks) added to the drama.  As you scroll through the images, here’s a few lyrics by Fiona Apple to get you in the mood…

Pale September
I wore the time
Like a dress that year
The autumn days
Swung soft around me
Like cotton on my skin
But as the embers
Of the summer
Lost their breath
And disappearred
My heart went cold and
Only hollow rhythms
Resounded from within
But then he rose
Brilliant as the moon in full
And sank in the
Burrows of my keep
And all my armour
Falling down
In a pile at my feet
And my winter giving
Way to warm
As I’m singing him to sleep

Pale September, Fiona Apple
