Katie+Corey’s Winvian Wedding Video


The grounds and cottages around the Winvian are remarkable. It’s officially on my vacation spots list and I can’t wait to go back and relax. They have a luxury tree house. A luxury tree house…need I say more?

I’m very excited to share this Winvian wedding video. It’s a wonderful story that was exceptionally fun to capture. Katie+Corey gave us every opportunity to get in close and be a part of the wedding day in a special way. We love that! And working alongside the girls over at Sweet Monday Photography made the day a huge success. What a blast!

Thanks for having us and letting us be a part of your Winvian Wedding video.

Alaina+Jonathan’s Gloucester Wedding


Alaina+Jon’s Gloucester wedding reflects their love for the water, their families and their son, who happens to be the most adorable kid EVER! The ceremony, which took place in Stage Fort Park, was personal and relaxed. Everyone was close enough to share in many laughs and goofy moments along with the touching ones that came with their vows.

After the ceremony Alaina+Jon joined all their guest for a killer reception along the ocean-side where everyone just let loose. During the toasts everyone got a chance to tell their stories of the bride and groom. Many told of how either Alaina or Jon were instrumental in helping them find love; but most expressed what an amazing family Alaina, Jon and their son make. I couldn’t agree more.

Thank you for letting us be a part of your Gloucester wedding.

Hildene Wedding Photos l Paige+Rich


I’m so excited to share these gorgeous Hildene wedding photos this afternoon! Paige+Rich had one of the most beautiful summer days we’ve had all years, even though rain was in the forecast the entire previous week. We worked quickly, and tried to take advantage of the weather as much as possible “before the rain hit,” and since it never actually came, we ended up with an array of incredible photos. Before we dive into these Hildene wedding photos though, I want to share some of Paige’s comments from the wedding:

What are your wedding colors and/or themes?
I wanted everything to be soft and whimsical – I tried to incorporate colors that worked with the breathtaking beauty of Hildene. My bridesmaids wore a soft blue tulle gown and the flowers were primarily white and green with pops of pink.

What is your inspiration when planning your wedding?
The garden and landscape at hildene is so beautiful so it wasn’t difficult to find inspiration. I wanted a whimsical romantic wedding and I got just that!

Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements?
Hildene is such a unique a beautiful place; the luscious green landscape, rolling mountains and beautiful flowers provide for a stunning venue – the vision was to truly incorporate this surrounding into the theme.

Did you include any special traditions, old or new?
I loved planning my wedding so I had a lot of fun incorporating all the traditional elements. The bouquet and garter tosses were hilarious!

Hannah+Joe l Bennington Vermont Wedding Photos


Served fresh on the blog this afternoon are Hannah+Joe’s Bennington, Vermont wedding photos! This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite weddings of the summer. I traveled to Hannah’s parent’s property in Bennington, VT last fall to get a feel for where everything would take place. I knew quickly this was going to be a highlight of my summer. It turned out even better than I had hoped, and I don’t say that lightly. Below you will find a Q+A with Hannah, then onto the photos!

What are your wedding colors and/or themes? We wanted the palette to be summery and romantic so we used a variety of blush pinks, peaches, whites, some yellow, and greenery! We also wanted the setting to speak for itself and tried to adorn it only in ways that enhanced it.

What is your inspiration when planning your wedding? Again, we had this really romantic vision for everything. We wanted it to feel like a Vermont home wedding–soft, summery, and simple in a way that was still very thoughtful. So much care went into each detail, and we think that showed. On a separate note, we wanted to have a really FUN wedding. Joe and I both love to dance and we knew we wanted the dancing to be interspersed throughout the beginning of the evening and then to have a lot of time left for a big party after dinner. So we planned it so that after our first and parent dances, we went straight into inviting everyone up to the dance floor before salad was even served! Then we danced again before the entree, and for the rest of the night afterward. Joe and I were dancing almost the whole time!

Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements? For our invitation, my father did a drawing of an apple tree. That’s a motif we used in our welcome bags and on our ceremony programs. I painted and drew all of the table numbers, created the escort card frame, wrote/drew all of the signs we used on the property, and also did the place cards that were at the three head tables.

Did you include any special traditions, old or new? Joe and I created our whole ceremony. We wrote most of what our officiant read. We felt it was important to write our own vows as well, and we think that was by far the most meaningful part of the ceremony. We also selected several readings–one from my favorite novel, one from a children’s book, and the last was a Robert Frost poem, which we chose because he wrote it to his daughter on her wedding day and because he spent a lot of time in the Bennington area. We also planted an apple tree the day before the ceremony, and then completed the planting during the ceremony! Since we got married in my parents’ apple orchard, we wanted to honor that and we loved that the tree is a symbol in many ways for marriage and for family. So all of these things are “new” traditions. What is an “old” tradition is that we got married at my parents’ house in Old Bennington, VT. My parents did the same exact thing 30 years ago–got married at my grandparents’ house in Old Bennington, VT!

Is there anything else you’d like to share?
-Joe and his groomsmen’s suits are all from Joe’s custom suit shop, Sebastien Grey. We wanted them to have a formal look so they’re a beautiful rich navy. And then we added a little fun to it by choosing navy ties with white polka dots from Tie Bar. Joe’s shoes were Cole Haan :)
-My mother surprised us by creating two “Family Trees,” which means that she hung photos of our family in one apple tree, and photos of Joe’s family in another!
-Along with the band and the aesthetics, Joe and I cared a lot about the food, which is why we chose Mezze. Their food is incredible both in taste and presentation, and the whole staff was a pleasure to work with.

You might have read about this above from Hannah, but her mother setting up these “family trees” that you had to walk through in the orchard to reach the ceremony site were awesome and very much a hit

It’s nice when you’re parent’s have an orchard on their property to use for the wedding!

Andrea+Zach l Whiteface Club Wedding


Zach+Andrea have been together for ten years, they began dating their freshman year of high school. They choose to have a long distance relationship during college, Zach went to Norwich, a Military School, while Andrea went to the University of Rhode Island. After college Zach enlisted in the Marine Corps as an Infantry Reservist. While he was at boot camp Andrea spent her summer in Lake Placid. All of the letters she sent Zach that summer had a Lake Placid stamp on them. Knowing their backstory always makes it more fun diving into the wedding video. Enjoy this gorgeous feature from Andrea+Zach’s Whiteface Club wedding!

 

Zach proposed last summer while they were vacationing in Hawaii (and everyone knows how much the studio loves Hawaii!). At sunset they drove down to Ka Lea the southern most tip of the Hawaiian Islands. It was here on the black volcanic cliffs overlooking the sunset on the ocean that Zach asked Andera to marry him. Her engagement ring has a blue sapphire in it which symbolizes that moment and how blue the water was. Speaking of gorgeous scenery and blue water – let’s dive into these amazing Whiteface Club wedding photos!

Andrea’s inscription she had put on the back of her father’s tie was featured on our Instagram as well – such a great idea
whiteface_club_wedding_002

A very excited bride to her dress on!

Andrea and her mother made the veil together. Hopefully she will be able to pass it down one day to her younger sisters or her future children on their wedding days. Andrea also borrowed the diamond solitaire necklace that her dad gave her mom on her twenty first birthday.

They wanted to stick with the Adirondack/ Rustic chic theme so they choose to use Greens, Browns, and Whites as their wedding colors. They tried to incorporate different textures such as moss, twigs, birch bark, and candles to decorate the already beautiful space.
