We are so excited to share with you today The White Dress in Color - a book recently published, and authored by our sweet friend and fellow fashion enthusiast + shop owner Beth Chapman! The book is loaded with gorgeous inspiration shoots and ideas for curating your personal style as you plan your big day!
The White Dress in color was born out of collaborations between Beth Lindsay Chapman, a stylist and bridal boutique owner, Candice Coppola an event designer and Carla Ten Eyck, a wedding photographer. Chapman and Coppola were invited by Ten Eyck to style one of Ten Eyck’s wedding photography workshops.
“Carla uses these workshops to teach other photographers the art of shooting weddings and bridal details,” Chapman said. “In putting together the workshop photo shoots, the end results were really beautiful and we started to submit them for editorial.” Eventually the trio were hired by various bridal publications to shoot their cover images and editorial spreads. Inspired by the Pinterest phenomenon and how brides enjoy “pinning” images on a webpage to create a unique wedding theme, Chapman, Coppola and Ten Eyck soon realized how fleeting some mediums were and the book was born. “The images and the content were so beautiful, but they were only seen for one issue of a magazine or fleetingly on a blog,” said Coppola, who heads Jubilee Events. “By publishing a book, we felt that the work could be preserved by having a long shelf life and become more of a keepsake for couples and industry professionals.”
We think they did an amazing job and we're thrilled to have our very own copy! For yours, or to grab one for your recently engaged girlfriends- or a mother of the bride who is so sad the planning is over! - check it out here. Cheers to timeless inspiration!
