You might recognize the ladies above — as they all were contestants on Season 20 of ABC’s The Bachelor as well as Bachelor in Paradise this past summer! While the seasons went and countless of glittery gowns were worn, the ladies shared their hearts and powerful friendships formed. It’s difficult to know the feeling of being on a show like this, with millions of eyes watching your every move… But each one of the gals has a unique story to tell. In an effort to highlight that and the friendships that have formed, Meredith Lynne Photography and Valerie Denise Photography teamed up with Alluring Events for a dreamy styled shoot at Camel Safari in Nevada. With dresses from Rebecca Schoneveld Bridal + Azazie.com, coverage by Be Inspired PR, and beautiful ladies with hearts of gold, the day turned into one fabulous celebration.
Caila Quinn (seen middle) shares This being the year anniversary of meeting, we wanted to celebrate the girl power that is our friendship. Like Taylor Swift’s ‘Wildest Dreams’ lyrics, we met in a dream filled with candle lit walkways and although the last rose has been given – we still have one another. There is a lot of criticism when you share yourself with the world and we have supported one another. We all joined Bachelor in Paradise this season and many times our differences are highlighted, but the inspiration for this shoot is about coming together and even in the moments where we are lost in this wild dream.
Ready to meet all the lovely ladies? Let’s go!
That genuine smile!! Every photoshoot should be this fun :)
The florist, Layers of Lovely, crafted stunning floral crowns for the ladies to wear.
The banner has lyrics from Taylor Swift’s ‘Wildest Dreams’ written on it… And it’s all kinds of dreamy!
So, so pretty! Especially with that desert landscape!
