Not to be confused with a rose, these flowers are smaller, and more delicate. Adding clusters of lisianthus will call for a more sweet, and romantic look.

Lambs Hill Winter Bridal Shoot

Today we're sharing some photos from a fun styled shoot we did in February up at Lambs Hill Farm in Beacon, New York. We had a lot of snow in the north east this year... so we decided to celebrate the beauty with Fondly Forever Photography, and McKenzie Miller Films, instead of grumble about the cold. Winter can get a bad wrap, but it turns out that we LOVE doing winter wedding!! There's something so cozy and romantic about this time of year, and we wanted to soak it in before we said our final good by, and welcomed yet another Spring.

 

We love this behind the scenes gimps of the day from Mckenzie! We're all so bundled up and in need of a tan. This will be fun to look back on in July ;)

Weddings Around the World // Spain

We love to travel and we love doing weddings overseas so we're starting a new segment on the blog that focuses on weddings around the world! Who better to lead with than one of our favorite photographers, Bryce Covey?! He shot this wedding at a gorgeous estate in Spain... complete with a castle! We're loving the combination of the grandiose, romantic feel of the ceremony on the expansive lawn and the intimate feel of the table setting for the reception!

Tina + Raul on Martha Stewart

This month has been filled with fun press, and today it's Tina + Raul's turn on Martha Stewart! These guys were so creative and such a blast to work with. We put this wedding together in just 4 months, and we only wish it had been longer so that we could have spent more time  dreaming of fun details with these two. Head over to Martha today, and relive all the good times :)
