Vintage Styled Spring Wedding with a Sweet Baby Goat

With St. Patrick's Day tomorrow and spring arriving on Friday, today's styled wedding shoot couldn't be more perfect. It's a Spring Equinox Vintage Inspired Wedding in verdant green and there's even a super adorable baby goat {the bride model was such a lucky lady as she got to hold the sweet goat and it even kissed her}. Corey Tucker of Corey Lynn Tucker Photography writes . . .

babies are being born and the birds are calling an
to our long New England winter. Who wouldn't
crave the fresh green burst of verdant green ferns.

The venue for today's styled shoot was South Farms and this third generation barn was just recently converted into a wedding and events venue to preserve the historic beauty for everyone to enjoy. The sweet baby goat {named Willy Nelson} not only stole the hearts of all involved in the shoot, he added a tender touch of new birth and the hope of Spring.
