What started as an inspiration board for a nontraditional bridal shoot morphed into a magical collaboration of local creatives who weren’t afraid to explore the unconventional side of the southern bridal market. “I wanted to speak to the unique group of brides that typically aren’t represented in our bridal market. My goal was to showcase the talent of our community through partnering with fellow creatives who also have a vision for ‘out of the box’ designs, the innovators and tastemakers, those taking a risk and daring to do something outside of the norm,” says creative director Kim Hightower.
What resulted sings the praises of Birmingham’s daring creative scene and serves as real-life inspiration for those brides who aren’t afraid to make their weddings something different and unexpected, but breathtaking. On the pages that follow, B-Metro shares the stunning outcome of such creative vision and invites Birmingham brides to mix some of our inspiration into their own as they plan their perfect days.
