Those last hours before a bride’s wedding is a special time for her and her girls, a time for them to celebrate their friendship and share in the excitement of her big day. In this destination styled shoot, our bride and her tribe had the opportunity to spend the day before and the morning of her wedding together, relaxing and getting ready for the events to come. Our group traveled to Gulf Shores, Alabama to enjoy the sun and sand at a beautiful new home, the Arena Blanca, managed by Kaiser Realty for Wyndham. One of Kaiser’s larger homes and part of the Wedding Home Collection in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Fort Morgan, Arena Blanca features 10 spacious bedrooms, two living areas, a chef’s kitchen, and a private, heated pool right on the deck facing the ocean. It was the perfect place for a pre-wedding getaway and wedding venue.
The girls dropped their luggage and headed to the beach for some much needed fun in the sun.
The trio headed back to the house to cool off under the shade of the covered, private pool deck.
Later in the day, they opted for some pre-wedding pampering
with relaxing facials courtesy of Sephora.
After an enjoyable day, the girls huddled up for some late-night talk with delectable
Cotton Blues cheesecakes because cheesecake always taste better in bed!
Morning dawned on our bride who took a few minutes to snuggle in her bed
before joining her gang for a pre-wedding brunch.

created the girls’ wedding day looks.
After a couple of hours of pre-wedding primping, the ladies stepped into their gorgeous gowns
by Lace Bridal Experience. The floaty ballgown with crisscross back detailing was
formal enough for any venue, but just light and soft enough for a beach wedding.
Bridesmaid gowns in shades of iridescent rose gold and dove gray from Lace Bridal Experience
complemented the floral design by A Flower Box as well as the home decor.
