I had the distinct honor collaborating with an incredible dream team to design and create a fresh new approach to winter wedding style– and I get to share it today! Here in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, among its lakes and its rolling hills, we have a lovely luxury of dreamy winters. Whether you have a love or hate relationship with them, you cannot deny its beauty. Tucked among the snowy hills is the Springside Inn, covered in country charm (yet still embraces a modern sensibility), boasts a darling backdrop to our glamorous fashion and beauty. Together we paired this lavish look with the country charm of lush florals by Fleur de Lis Florist, bold checked & elegant linens by La Tavola Fine Linens and simply styled & welcoming paper design by Annie Taylor Design. Inspiring beauty design by Syracuse Makeup Artistry and Christy Robinson Hair Studio were effortlessly matched by the gorgeous gowns & accessories by Mirror, Mirror Inc. Bridal (hands-down our heroes for the day– but that’s another story!). We had way too much fun with two dresses and three different looks– we even gave our wedding table an evening glow as the day slowly faded into dusk. Taken by Sarah‘s photography’s unparalleled vision for romantic images, captured each moment and element with glowing light-infused delight. And take-the-cake details to finish the look came from The Patisserie, Maggie’s Jewelry Box, Giovanni’s Tuxedos and Follow Your Arrow Fabric Art, a unique guest book. What happens when all these seemingly unrelated ideas swirl together? A whole lotta lovely.
Sparkling, simple, lavish, whimsical– how can they be in the same sentence? I just goes to show that you can dream your wedding into a tapestry of things that inspire you– as long as you have an inspired & talented team! Congrats to our real couple Meghan & Andrew on their engagement and wedding planning journey– thanks for stepping outside your comfort zones and bearing with the subzero temps! Thanks to all who collaborated and to Sarah for pursuing her craft in such fine form. This is the conclusion of winter over here on The Post, a dreamy send-off I would say!
