{inspired.style} Lavish Country Winter Wedding Inspiration – Taken by Sarah Photography

Taken by Sarah

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!

{loveletter} Heather & John’s Sparkling Winter Wedding by Leo Timoshuk Photography

Leo Timoshuk Photography

Happy {almost} Valentine’s Day lovers! Such a sweet time of year where we get to express our love {extra} for those around us: without reservation, with abandon, without rhyme, with lots of reason! Today’s wedding is super important to me, its posting is two fold: the first, of course, is because I love this couple and their absurdly romantic wedding day has now flowed beautifully into their marriage, and it seemed like the perfect Valentine’s week choice! It was also the last time I got to work with a talented colleague, the late Frank DiMeo, who was the second shooter beside Leo (of Leo Timoshuk Photography) that day. To say we all had a blast was an understatement. I’m so honored to have been part of this day {really the whole journey was such a joy with this couple and their family}, as well as be part of the dream team that made it all possible. So in the light of celebrating life and love to the fullest, this post is dedicated to Frank DiMeo.

Talk about dreamy! And aren’t they adorable?! I know Heather would have loved flakes falling from the sky, but the airy, soft winter air made the whole day glisten– especially the bride and groom!

So much to love about this day, I could dote on it forever… Except that I’m married to this amazing Valentine, to whom I can’t wait to give all my attention to this weekend! Shout out to my stud, my partner in crime, my forever valentine. Frank caught this photo of us while we were working the wedding, and I cherish it. Shows you just how silly, slightly crazed and ready to jump in on the action we are– it also serves as a warning to any photographers trying to sneak up on us– you’ll get something special, that’s for sure! Thanks a million Frank, you’ll be missed, but your legacy of preserving magical moments lives on…
