Shakespeare in Love - Bridal Fashion Shoot - Ceremony Magazine Los Angeles

Shall I compare thee to a SPRING day….   As this lovely season starts to bloom, I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite bridal fashion editorials featured in this year's Los Angeles Ceremony Magazine edition - Shakespeare in Love, photographed by Studio EMP.  

Of course, I fell in love with the movie (especially hottie Joseph Fiennes as the poetically-challenged Shakespeare) and felt that our location at Ponte Vineyard Inn could set the stage perfectly for a stunning Mid-Summer-type fashion tale.
