A 1920's Vintage Inspired Wedding in Saratoga, NY with the bride in her great, great grandmothers wedding dress

As soon as I saw Tiffany of Tiffany Wayne Photography post this wedding, I knew it was a must feature for all my readers. I instantly fell in love with every part of this wedding - especially the brides wedding dresses {there were 2 of them}. The first one that the bride, Jen, wore to walk down the aisle in was actually the wedding dress of her great, great grandmother. SWOON. How special is that? And, it's the perfect dress for this 1920s themed wedding. Just wait until you see the bridal party in their vintage inspired makeup and dresses. DOUBLE SWOON. So enough with the chatting - I have to start showing the photos . . .

Time for the second wedding dress - another amazing design.

So cute - little leaves on champagne glass

Real Wedding Vow Renewal : Adirondack Love in North Creek, NY

When I heard that Tiffany Wayne Photography was going to be heading to North Creek to photograph a vow renewal at the Copperfield Inn - I knew I had to keep a close eye on her sneak peeks. You might remember I wrote a review of our wonderful stay at The Copperfield Inn and Resort back in October. Kristen and Ryan have actually been married for 5 years, but they never had a formal wedding. So after 5 years, they decided to go all out and renew their vows and have the wedding of their dreams. Isn't this just the sweetest? Their special day is beautiful and filled with lots of Adirondack touches as they both love the outdoors and camping. Oh, and don't you just love Kristen shorter wedding dress with the flower embellishments?

Kristen included so many wonderful items from Etsy in her wedding {including the bridal hanger, garter, and handmade jewelry} Do you notice the five beads on Kristen’s necklace? This symbolize the five years Kristen and Ryan have been married! And, since the wedding took place the day before July 4th, isn't the garter just perfect?

Loving this photo of Kristen as she looks out the window - it was raining, well pouring actually, right before the wedding. But, it stopped just in time for their outdoor ceremony held on the Kellogg Property.

The "Happily Ever After Starts Here" sign is such a cute way to direct your guests to the ceremony spot.

Kristen and Ryan had a tree planting ceremony to symbolize "Love Grows".

There was even a guest signing tree. Oh, and isn't the little terrarium with the mini animal inside cute?

There was even a "Mad Libs" game at each place setting.

Gotta love a cake that looks like a birch tree for an Adirondack themed affair :)

And, now for some amazing portraits of Kristen and Ryan - I love the lighting on the darker ones - so intriguing.

And, there you have it. A beautiful vow renewal - dream wedding. Such a wonderful concept.

Tiffany even put together a little video of Kristen and Ryan's special day that you can see here.

Photo Shoot : a vintage camera inspired wedding reception

This photo shoot was conceived by Tiffany of Tiffany Wayne Photography and I came on board to help coordinate the vendors involved. Tiffany chose to work with a Vintage Camera Theme - for her love of all things photography and wedding. The color scheme for this shoot was peach, brown, black and cream and featured many DIY projects for wedding inspiration.


Guests were asked to "Take a Roll of Film to Capture a Moment".


The model bride wore all the accessories {hair pins, hair combs and earrings} that were meticously designed by Tilley Jewels Bride.


The beautiful invitation suite and menu {seen later} were designed by Carey of Lasso'd Moon.


Even the boutonniere is wrapped with a roll of film.


The beautiful hand-painted parasol is from Customized Wedding Creations.


For the floral arrangements {bouquet and boutonniere} Tiffany picked wildflowers and the cupcake sleeves were made using real film strips.


The above camera necklace is from Bride Blu and was worn by the model bride in all the shots.


The cupcake stand is from The Cupcake Tower and you can purchase many different tier sizes with ribbons to wrap around them that match your events colors. And, the cupcake toppers are from yours truly and my etsy shop Wedding Girl.


Cute little bags for the guests to place the sweets from the candy bar in. They read "A Picture Perfect Ending! Sweet Dreams!"

Real Engagement : a Valentine's themed shoot in Saratoga Springs, NY

So happy to share today's Real Engagement of Caroline and Kyle with you from Tiffany Wayne Photography who you might remember as the photographer from my berry sweet strawberry photo shoot last summer. Today's engagement shoot is adorable with the conversation heart plates and the super cute Valentine mugs for the hot chocolate. Love the props Tiffany found for the couple. And, I love the photos when Caroline gets a bit of the whipped cream on her nose from the cocoa :) After being outside, the couple headed into the Gideon Putnam Hotel to warm up a bit and have some beautiful photos taken.
