1 The idea behind this breathtaking bridal photo shoot!
It all started when Isadora Martin-Dye, the owner of a beautiful wedding venue named Rixey Manor in Northern Virginia, heard about Stuart. She then approached her to model for her website in wedding gowns. According to Martin-Dye a lot of newly engaged women cannot see themselves as brides because of all the images in magazines which feature tall and thin models. Martin-Dye believes that every woman should be able to see herself as a bride and they should not be stressing about the fact that they can’t look perfect on their wedding day. She basically wanted to show that women with bridal dresses are the most beautiful and anybody can look their best on their special day.
2 How did the shooting go?
The splendid pictures that you are watching are the result of a photo shoot which was enjoyed and loved to the core by everybody involved in it. Madeline especially loved being in front of the camera. Martin-Dye said that Madeline would actually get a little upset at the end of long days of shooting as she just didn’t want to get out of the beautiful gowns. “In front of a camera is her happy place”, Martin-Dye added.
The photographer, Sarah Houston also recalled that Maddy was a natural in front of the camera and she made the whole shoot great where all of them had fun. Don’t you think all the fun and happiness is rightly evident in the photos?
3 The magical moments!
The photographs look so dreamy and romantic that you actually feel that a pretty bride is gushing and blushing with happiness on her wedding day and living all the beautiful moments of togetherness with her partner. The model who has become the groom, Quaid Coxsey has also done a great job of becoming the lovable and caring partner.
Madeline wears several beautiful wedding gowns and in some pictures she also wears a fur coat. She has made the photographs look so real that any woman can connect to them; be it the way she covers herself up in a coat or be it the way she dances with the groom in all glory.
Just in case you want to get hold of the gorgeous gowns, you can go Ava Laurenne Bride, a retailer Fredericksburg in Virginia.
4 Life is turning out to be beautiful for Madeline…
This bridal photo shoot has definitely been one of the finest works of Madeline. Last year we had shared a story on how a teen girl with Down syndrome had decided to become a model and how she worked hard to live her dream.Madeline had once seen a fashion show and said to her mother that she wanted to be a model. She worked really hard on herself and started to lose weight and also did dancing, swimming, gymnastics, cheer leading to get into shape and eventually she lost 44 pounds. Her mother, who had always supported her in all her endeavors, arranged for a professional photo shoot and posted pictures on Facebook and since then, there has been no looking back for Madeline.
Her first major modeling campaign was with the U.S. body-positive brand Manifesta and since then she has worked for brands such as Ever Maya, Pinup Girl Clothing, Mint and Chopsticks, Tutuhot and she is also the face of lipstick company Glossi girl. Madeline’s life is turning out to be great and she deserves all of this and even more for she has worked really hard. She had started off to become a model to end the stigma against people with disabilities and she has been able to do that and is now an inspiration to millions. Hats off to the valiant spirit of this young girl who is beautiful inside and out!
