Badass Boho Bridal Shoot

Cattleya Chapel

This inspirational bridal shoot wast an amazing collaboration created by Kathy Peterson, an amazing event stylist, and designer here in South Florida. Cattleya Chapel was the perfect blank slate to bring this bold, vintage, whimsical vision into life.

We are all used to the typical bridal attire – but have you ever thought of breaking the traditions and going BOLD with your wedding dress? And in this case…. bold is certainly the right word.

The velvet burgundy gown Kailyn is wearing is such a rich, gorgeous color for a non-traditional wedding dress. In this red and gold themed boho theme, we go back in time to a more simple, whimsical day where running barefoot through the grass was the norm and technology is just a thing of the past.

I hope you enjoy these images I captured – and check out the other amazing vendors who were a part of this shoot in the credits below!
