Stylist Mallory Joyce tells us, “This bridal portrait session was inspired by the above words from William Butler Yeats’s “Cap and Bells” and the golden light of dusk that warms the Blue Ridge Mountains at end of day.” Very special thanks to her talents, her team, and photographer Elisa Bricker for sharing such beautiful images with us. For the word lovers among us, we’ll let Yeats take it away from here.
She laid them upon her bosom,
Under a cloud of her hair,
And her red lips sang them a love-song
Till stars grew out of the air.
She opened her door and her window,
And the heart and the soul came through,
To her right hand came the red one,
To her left hand came the blue.
They set up a noise like crickets,
A chattering wise and sweet,
And her hair was a folded flower
And the quiet of love in her feet.
— William Butler Yeats, “Cap and Bells”
