13 Wedding Dresses For 13 Different Types of Brides

This past October, we headed to Georgia with a selection of our newest (and prettiest) wedding dresses to Sea Island for our fifth #KleinfeldEditorial photoshoot! Trust us when we say Sea Island has it ALL. Think top-notch service and hospitality, the most incredible backdrops including river views and private beaches, and the the AAA Five Diamond hotel The Cloister with its Mediterranean-style architecture, peaceful courtyards, grand staircases, and beautiful arches. It’s safe to say that no couple, guest or visitor will be disappointed with this venue! Since it’s a perfect property for a destination wedding (and in this case photo shoot!), we packed 13 dresses and partnered with some of the world’s top wedding professionals including Harper’s BAZAAR top-rated photographer, Allan Zepeda and BRIDES Magazine’s top-rated event planner Sapphire Events, to create an editorial filled with fashion-forward dress options that are perfect for a wedding at Sea Island (or any resort). Every type of bride has her dream dress, and you might just stumble upon yours below.
