Winter Bride Style Shoot | January 2016

Me and a few of my favorite vendors in the wedding industry decided to get together to do a bridal style shoot and it was just epic!  On a very cold January day, with just a few days to pull it all together, we all put our talents together and pulled one the most beautiful, vintage themed, winter bridal shoots I've done to date!  I had ideas in my head as to how I wanted the shoot to look and it was executed exactly how I saw it.  Our model looked so adorable in her fuzzy, chunky, cream colored scarf, mittens, special edition white bean boots from L.L. Bean,  boot warmers and pinkish toned tulle skirt!  Winter weddings are not that popular because of how stormy it can get, however, the light at that time of the year and all the texture and tones proves winter can be just gorgeous for a wedding and has a look and feel all it's own!  We all love a beautiful summer day but right now I'm loving this winter themed shoot and hope to see more brides consider snuggling up to the idea. I could see this look working well at a barn or a cozy Inn up in Vermont with roaring fireplaces and throw in a horse drawn buggy for winter sled rides and talk about creating something unique!  

Now onto the shoot itself and the wonderful folks involved.  

Hair and makeup:

Here is what she had to see about the shoot and how she came to the look she created..."I wanted to keep the makeup clean and crisp for this winter shoot.  I knew we wanted an organic woodland look, so I kept the color palette  on the neutral side.  I used colors such as  eggshell,  browns,  bronze and pink tones for the brides eyes.  Her cheeks I used a pale pink to flush them a bit as if she was touched by the cool winter air.  I kept her lips soft using a bright and pale pink mixed together and then finished them with a bit of a pearl frost.  For the hair, I went with a simple, messy braid to focus on the head piece."

 "For the flowers I chose colors & texture that remind me of Winter-soft whites, frosty silver, warm chocolate & rich Merlot.

A very organic look & feel was created by using different elements
like the leather handle wrap, cotton branches, Winter greens &

I also loved the idea of using Peonies simple because they are a Springflower & are a promise of the future, like the vows between the Bride & Groom."

My goal for this shoot was all about natural light, tone and texture.  I love the warm, cream colors in her scarf, top and mittens.  The light tulle skirt also has a very airy feel to it and the color was perfect.  I love the clean makeup and simple braided hair.  The flowers also have a very elegant but unique look to them.  So many cool types of flowers came together so nicely. So in love with how this entire style shoot came out and love working with such a great team of other passionate and talented ladies who not only love what they do but do it so well!

The food at this place was delicious. The menu options we had at these wedding venues NYC were great (it was hard to choose) and one course was better than the next. It was great that they had different options for those who didn't eat what we served.
