This anniversary editorial shoot features a perfectly relaxed day in the Shenandoah Mountains at a gorgeous historic manor house. Amanda and Jack began their day with hot coffee and sharing bites of toast and eggs. They retreated outside to the covered porch for some relaxed reading and conversation. Eventually, they made their way to the river for a picnic lunch with lots of kisses and a bit of wine. They finished off the day with a swim and a playful slashing fight. The entire lazy day was as sweet as it was magical and Amanda Adams captured every precious moment.
Carol and Erik have a deep respect for nature and know how to find balance in their life by escaping to the outdoors whenever possible. They love backpacking, mountain biking and pretty much enjoying getting off the grid whenever possible. They wanted their woodsy mountain wedding to reflect their love of the outdoors and thought Camp Four Echoes (near Worley, Idaho) was the perfect venue for their woodsy wedding vision. They made their wedding a full weekend, and having everything located on site allow family and friends to get to know each other and start becoming a connected community throughCarol and Erik’s marriage. Jerome Pollos Photography expertly captured every perfect moment of this exceptional weekend!
I just love mountain weddings that incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into the details. This year’s color combination of serenity blue and rose quarts was practically made for mountain weddings. I’ve spend many nights watching the mountain sky light up with a vibrant rose quartz horizon and fades into a zenith of serenity blue. It’s like nature’s way of celebrating pretty ombre. For their wedding, designers Jessica and Shane naturally and skillfully infused this year’s colors into their classically rustic springtime mountain wedding. I particularly love the invitation suite with that uses the National Park Service badge, the traditional blue ridge parkway mountain motif and a rose quartz setting sun. It’s absolute perfection. I know you’ll also be swooning over all the other splendidly homespun details, including birch bark details and a simple, rustic buttercream cake. Christy McKee Photography was on hand to capture every lovely detail.
Get ready to be delighted by this vintage wedding in the woods. The Roxbury Barn is a magical place, with 100-foot tall pine trees that create a natural cathedral under which Jasmine and Lorne said their vows. This exquisitely designed wedding combines a charming woodland venue with urban chic details. Like any true-blue New Yorkers, the couple incorporated subway tokens throughout their decor (Lorne’s cufflinks were brass tokens), and embraced Nouveau-Deco elements wherever they could, using old posters, wrought iron furniture or brass. This fetching fete was perfectly captured by Kerri Lynne Photography.
Planning a Winter/Fall wedding in Colorado can be unpredictable, It was almost November, and Aubrey and Landon hoped to see snow on the ground, but there wasn’t much in Vail. However, like a sweet blessing on their marriage, tiny, perfectly-formed flakes began to float down just as Landon saw his bride for the first time. And Aubrey! Aubrey absolutely glowed in an Augusta Jones wedding gown from Anna Bé Bridal Boutique. Of course this smart mountain girl, kept cozy with a romantic vintage fur stole! The eco-chic florals by Vail Vintage Magnolia were so stunning and the entire day was captured by Amy Caroline Photography.
