As far as fairy tales go this amazing styled shoot could of been pulled right from the books of Disney himself. This story takes place at the Tamarack Lodge in Voluntown, CT. The intended atmosphere is a little bit of nostalgic with a modern version. Rustic walls representing a log cabin, exposed industrial beams, vintage furniture and light fixtures with an inviting experience as soon as you walk through the door.
Starting the day with Hair and Makeup by Sara Julianna Beauty & Transcendent Makeup. They set the tone for the day by emphasizing the beauty of our amazing models Genesis Paternina & Marcelino Class, and TaylorVertefeuille. Sarah Brehant our amazing wedding planner did an outstanding job once again facilitating this awesome project. Tracy with All My Heart Events came through yet again with stunning one of a kind arrangements and rustic settings to capture the essence of our forest fairy tale. As our decor was coming together Tara with TS calligraphy provided us with the most beautiful signage, details, and stationary hand written and magical. Our beautiful gowns from Jacqueline Bridal Kouture, and the most Delicious cake from Donna Bartlett at The Kakery. Everything was starting to come together! Our friend from Millside Wedding Films came to film our fairy tale also.
Now its time to start shooting and guess who shows up... Puppies!! Well a little bigger then we anticipated but the cutest rescues around! :) Elana Rogan with The Animal Experts and For The Love Of Paws provided us with some rescues to kick off the day.
The mist from the cold crisp air blew through the forest trees and the rain subsided just enough for us to capture the magic and love between our gorgeous models. Taking a stroll through the woods to a teepee yes I said teepee we have seen it all! The laughter and fun followed like the sweeping aroma of pine from the forest. We finished our fairy tale with toasts and cheers, vows, and a kiss to seal the deal.
I want to personally thank everyone who had a part in bringing this vision to life!
