It’s supposed to be spring but it’s currently snowing here in Minneapolis.  I know, I know; I shouldn’t be surprised.  I’ve lived here most of my life and it frequently snows in April (and sometimes even in May), but Mother Nature is torturing us given that temps were soaring and sunny last week, and this week it’s back to gloom and doom!

Ok, enough talk about the weather.  I’m escaping in my mind and reliving Maggie and Vinny’s gorgeous wedding day in the rolling hills of Vermont.  Sure, it rained, but it was a green and beautiful and who doesn’t love New England in the fall?!  Maggie & Vinny’s vibrant colors were very decidedly non-traditional for the fall and matched their sunny personalities.  I loved all the gorgeous details at the Alerin Barn, but even more so, I loved working with this amazing couple and their family and friends!  Their wedding was selected to be featured in South New England Weddings Destination edition.  Congrats Maggie & Vinny!!

CAROL & RYAN | LONG ISLAND WEDDING ON FILM

I was introduced to Carol & Ryan through previous clients.  After corresponding via email, we met in person at a coffee shop in NYC, and from the first meeting I knew these two stylish designers would plan the perfect wedding!  Their entire celebration at the Old Field Club in East Setauket, New York, was a labor of love and the couple did all of the planning, invitations, design elements, decor, hand-painted signs, website, and so much more, themselves.  Their wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty, and the writeup from the bride says it all much better than I ever could!  I know there’s often lots of emphasis on the “stuff” and the pretty little details, and that’s certainly fun to show in photographs, but Carol & Ryan’s wedding day went way beyond all that.  Their day was as touching as it was beautiful.  See the feature here, and check out some of my personal favorites below. Enjoy!
