Spring Wedding Inspiration

Romantic Nostalgia

I would like to star this post thanking The Richmond Historical Society for allowing us to shoot at the city’s Old Round Church. The Church is a historical landmark, built between 1872 and 1814. It’s beautiful and so charming. Perfect for small weddings. Contact them to learn about their rates, you will be surprised.

Now lets talk about sweetness. Danielle Devlin from Bakearia brought us delicious pieces of heaven, inspired by the 50’s culinary. I couldn’t pick a favorite. The Pistachio Violet Eclairs and Macarons matching our theme colors. So, the desserts were not only delish, but beautiful as well.

Creative Muse Floral Designs created the most beautiful floral designs with locally grown and foraged flowers. The unbelievable and recognizable touches of Sarah Jo aways amazes me.  I picked a color palette that inspired me for a spring wedding and she transformed it into pieces of art blending all the theme together.   17082_10204171265825425_6971230653410067339_n

It was a pretty cold day for spring, but our model Hannah Marshall was a trooper and gorgeous all the way! Flawless makeup & hairstyle by Beatriz Jarvis & Sarah Crowley.

Engagement at Brewster River Gorge VT

Romantic engagement session

I had a lovely evening photographing this engagement/family combo session of Julie & Aaron and their 3 kids last week. I suggested the Brewster River Gorge for their session, as they love enjoying the outdoors as a family. This location has a little bit of everything: a coverage bridge, a beautiful 15min hiking track along the river to a nice waterfall. The light was perfect and I prize Julie for picking on heels most of the time 😉

Bridal Portrait Couture

I had so much fun photographing Heather. She is a great actress, singer, piano player & dancer! She is the complete package 😉 If you like a good play, you probably have seen her acting somewhere in Vermont. The dress: the first dress you see is a Love Marley, Penelope Wedding gown from Fiori Bridal. So delicate and almost magical. The location: Richmond library. Perfect light was our charm for the day.

Spring Inspiration

Getting in the Mood

for Spring!

I fell in love with Vermont and it’s winter season. Seriously! I love the snow, the cold air on my face, the sound of my steps on the snowy walkways, the smell of firewood in the air. It just feels so good. The best part is to have a cozy home to comeback to, and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate while I work from my desk facing the window that overlooks the neighbors’ white roofs and pinetrees.  But. I have to say: I’m ready for spring! Super inspired for this renewing  and colorful season.

This spring inspiration shoot happened during the snowstorm last Sunday, at Fiori Bridal Boutique, in Essex Junction, with the help of Makeup Artist and Hairstylist, Sarah Crowley from Finishing Touch and, or course, the gorgeous model Jamie Hickey. Featured wedding dresses from Stella York, Love Marley and Casablanca collections. Flowers courtesy of Green Mountain Florist Supply.
