Stop by the FULL GALLERY and enjoy more of this icy wedding inspiration – it’s truly is magical!
From the Photographer… “I’ve been dreaming up this styled shoot in my head for sometime now. I dreamed of a bride in a sweeping romantic dress alongside a handsome groom in the middle of a winter wonderland. When I first saw pictures of the Ice Castles, I knew that’s where it had to be. As I enlisted each of the vendors one by one, I described my vision and then told them to use their creative freedom to add their personal touch to the shoot. I’m so glad I did, because they took my vision and truly ran with it, creating the perfect pieces to add. I asked my good friend, India, if she would consider being my ‘bride’ for the day alongside her boyfriend, Andy. Neither of them had ever been professionally photographed, but were excited to give it a try!As we traveled the three hours there that morning from Maine, we drove through beautiful white-capped mountains and reveled in the fact that we had lucked out with a warm 50 degree day in February! The Sunny Grange Bed and Breakfast were kind enough to give us use of their house to get ready in. I loved the simplistic, small town feel there. When we arrived the the Ice Castles for our private session, we were surprised to find that the ice was starting to melt all around us. In fear of getting the dress and tux too wet, we decided to stay out in the open areas, where there was an abundance of natural light reflecting off of every surface. Once all the pieces were in place, it was almost too easy, as each image captured was breathtaking.?This shoot hasn’t yet been featured anywhere else yet!”
