I’m so excited to share that our editorial shoot at Windows on the Water at Frogbridge is featured on Wedding Chicks today! I’ve been keeping these photos under wraps until the shoot was published but now you finally get to see the images my team and I captured back in July!
Since early spring this year, weddings have been reimagined. Most weddings had to be postponed or restructured with shorter guests lists. It has been a difficult time, to say the least, but having had an intimate wedding myself, I wanted to bring to light how special a small wedding can be. As much as I love big weddings with lively dance floors, there’s something magical about a quiet evening with a small intimate group of people that want the absolute best for you and your loved one. And those who are doing a minimony this year and a big celebration next year are certainly getting the best of both worlds – you are the luckiest!
For this editorial shoot, our focus was an intimate ceremony under lush trees. Here the sky is big, but the celebration is small. With an outdoor micro-wedding like this one, nature becomes the canvas and our couple has the freedom and creativity to paint their wedding with personal touches.
At Windows on the Water at Frogbridge, the willow and pine trees envelope guests in a natural canopy. The lakeside location is an ideal backdrop for a small ceremony, and guests can enjoy the pleasant water breeze as their loved ones exchange vows. The festivities continue under the towering pine trees, as 16 guests indulge in food, conversation, and cocktails around a welcoming farm table, adorned with a billowy runner.
Couples like this one are also redefining tradition in their color palette selection, as seen in the sprinkling of crimson, green, and cerulean, anchored by the reoccurring color of copper. Pops of color appear in the wedding invitation suite, floral arrangements, wedding cake, groom’s suit, tablescape, and, of course, refreshing grapefruit gin cocktail. The beauty of an outdoor wedding is that nature makes the best complement to any couple’s design vision.
