If I could name one thing that makes my heart swell when I think about this little blog and how far we've come the last two years, it's that we've welcomed every and any type of wedding you can have in the tri-state area, and somehow, they all fit. Our favorite saying here is "you do you", and this bold winter micro-wedding from the talented team from Nina Lily Photography is proof that no matter what your story, how how you choose to say "I do", it's all beautiful. Katherine and Ross (from the band Summer Scouts) chose HollyHedge Estate as the backdrop to their intimate wedding, and it couldn't be more gorgeous. Bold floral design, two incredibly gorgeous gowns, heirloom jewelry and of course, music as the cornerstone to the entire day.Read More
Oh friends, we've been waiting patiently for this day to come and when you see this gorgeous vow renewal from Nina Lily Photography, you'll absolutely know why. Missy and John weren't able to have the wedding they dreamed of five years ago, so when the stars aligned and they were able to share their vows together at the stunning Living Wall at Promise Ridge, Nina graciously helped them pull off a day they'll never forget. Lush greenery, vintage tables, copper accents and a couple completely in love... we'll just let the pictures tell the story. It's one you don't want to miss, we can promise you that!Read More

This intimate, boho-chic bridal shower shoot from Nicole Taylor is the perfect blend of vibrant florals, neutral colors and full of inspiration for any event. Silvery Moon Guesthouse was the perfect backdrop for the bohemian vibe, and the styling from Allium and Patchwork Planning made the entire event welcoming and warm. Vintage glassware, fruits and a flower-crown session? This is a shower we wish we were invited to!
From Nicole: Located in an old historic chapel in Stroudsburg, PA in the Poconos. We were contacted by the venue owner Liz who had recently purchased the property containing an old school house, an old historic chapel and a beautifully decorated home that she now calls The Silvery Moon Guesthouse. Looking to offer her space for small events and weddings Candice of Patchwork Planning and Renee of Forget Me Not Rentals decided on a vibrant bridal shower with a Boho feel. Sarah of Allium contributed to the styling and completed the look and feel with her beautiful floral designs including the stunning floral necklace worn by our model for the shoot.
The inspiration for this shoot drew from two completely different worlds. We wanted to to go for a raw bohemian vibe pulling in a ton of neutral tones, but we also wanted the color to make a statement so we included bold pinks and orange. We used pops of color in the florals, fruits, and other small details, while maintaining a neutral pallet within the furniture and the throw pillows and poufs. To tie in the florals, we also used them to accentuate the adorable buttercream cupcakes.
Since we wanted to inspire a bridal shower, we thought a flower crown activity would be a fun and unique way to entertain guests. We wanted the seating situation to be cozy and inviting so we used a low bohemian style table with some throw pillows and poufs.
