Winter will be gone before we know it so I wanted to share this little, winter wedding inspiration shoot that I did last month. 

Let me start by saying this... Brittany & Matt, our models, where such troopers!!  It was absolutely freezing and pretty windy on the day we did this shoot! 

Kaleigh, my assistant, and I carried furniture through snow up to our thighs in order to set this up.  It was a great work out! 

We were cold, but we had a blast putting everything together and photographing in the beauty of upstate NY in all of it's snowy, winter glory. 

The ideas behind this shoot... simple, rustic & winter.

The awesome & talented people who worked on this with us -

Models - Brittany & Matt  / Also, Colleen.. you may have seen her bridesmaid inspiration post?

Hair & Makeup - Candy Johnson of Candy's Style Suite.  In addition to doing a lovely job with make up and hair, Candy joined us out in the snow, when it was time to shoot, to assist and to make herself available for touch ups!!  Go Candy!

Floral Design - Bella Fleur.  Diana Greene was so kind to lend us her wonderful talent ( as well as her furniture:-) ) for this shoot!

Paper Products (Invitations & favor tag) - These were created by the very gifted, Nikki Gagnon of Corinna Beau Letterpress. The lovely calligraphy, on the green envelope, was done by Pya Seidner.

Since this was a pretty simple shoot, the styling was done by myself and my assistant, Kaleigh Hadley. 

We pulled from our own wardrobes for this one... Brittany is actually wearing the Dolly Couture gown that I wore at my wedding!  The furniture was borrowed (mainly all from Diana Greene) and my friends, Maria & Nick, lent us a few antique rifles to use as props.
