Love. It’s the silver lining in wedding planning during a pandemic that has forced brides to be  fluid and creative. In this unprecedented era, weddings might be scaled down, but love is still abundant. My fashion styling class had fun producing this beautiful shoot with photographer Aitina Fareed-Cooke from Get Fokus’d Productions. These aren’t your traditional wedding photos; that’s why we love them. Whether your gown is thrifted, upcycled, a family heirloom, or custom made, it’s still your day to shine.
