If you're brave enough, winter is a great time to take photos, especially if you want to highlight your love of the season without getting married in the cold!

As a photographer and past-bride, I always recommend an engagement portrait session. Are you questioning whether or not to have one? DO IT. This is why:

Comfort. If you are apprehensive around cameras or intimidated by having your photo taken, it will show in your wedding portraits. Engagement portraits are a great time to get to know your photographer better, strengthen your relationship and see how they work. For us as photographers, it’s the perfect time to find your best angles, what makes you smile naturally, and your personal preferences. Let’s face it, not everyone is a model, and most people (including myself!) don’t know what to do in front of a camera, but it is a photographer’s job to make you look good. Once you see your photographer’s vision and process you will feel so much more comfortable – that, in my book, is priceless.

Real Wedding | Kayse & Eben

 

Trapp Family Lodge, Stowe, Vermont

Vermont Bride Magazine | Stowe Vermont Winter Wedding Covered Bridge

Winter is not the traditional season for weddings in Vermont, but it has been gaining popularity in the past few years. With opportunities for soft textures, cosy fires, and soul-warming libations, it's no wonder that more couples are choosing a snowflake adorned setting for their "I do"s. Kayse and Eben had been frequent "weekend warriors", driving up to Vermont for mini ski adventures, for years and knew it would be a special treat for their friends and family to experience the enchanting atmosphere that Stowe had to offer.

Read on to see what Kayse had to say about their path to this special Winter wedding:

Today we are bringing you some charming wedding inspiration from the peach state of Georgia! Jess and Matt's late May nuptuals took place at Pineola Farms, a 12 acre pecan orchard - a fitting backdrop for their modern-country style. The fusion of styles came together beautifully, from cowgirl boots paired with a crystal belted flare gown, to gray chevron striped tablecloths paired with rustic, wild flowers atop chunky wood slices. The event was capped off with a vintage, green pickup truck for the perfect photo opps.

Jess and Matt's color palette consisted of shades of teal and white, with wood and chalkboard details. The bouquets were rustic bunches of local wild flowers bound with burlap, which were echoed in the centerpieces on the tables. Billowy white paper pom poms adorned the seats and arbor at the ceremony, which echoed Jess' wedding gown skirt. Overall, we think Jess and Matt did a fabulous job at combining sleek, modern elements with a rustic setting.

The winter landscape in Vermont can start to look a little monochrome after a while, with snow-covered mountains, trees, and the pale gray, cloudy sky that typically dominates from December through March. To cut through the stark white, we love the idea of using deep, rich jewel tones to add warmth and sparkle to a winter season wedding. Dark purples, reds, studded with glittering gold, are the perfect foil to the ice and frost.

Dark chocolate whoopie pies are a perfect match for delicate gold calligraphy. Lots of shiny, vintage decorations give tabletops luxurious charm and interest. The sage and lime greenery pairs nicely with the more saturated garnet and plum colored flowers. Strings of cafe lights hang as a backdrop and give the entire area a warm glow that will last well into the evening.
