A Vintage Theme Bridal Fair.
I first had the privilege of shooting an elopement at Whitestone Country Inn a few years ago for the elopement of Sarah & Ben. I fell in LOVE with the place immediately.
I was a vendor at the 2012 Bridal Fair last year, and was excited to be a part of this year’s event. Every moment I get to shoot anything in this photographer’s dream of a venue is a breathtaking experience.
Last Summer I was in my best friend Leah’s wedding there, but had to, of course, snap a few images myself. As on her wedding, and Sarah & Ben’s elopement, the sky out there is simply MARVELOUS over the water…the day of the Bridal Fair was no exception. Truly a wedding wonderland!
Grabbing a few minutes here and there to steal away from my table and shoot was a priority, right there with meeting all of the Brides to be. It’s always fun getting to “talk shop” with other wedding industry pros…and seeing (and shooting) their goodies is a perk too.
I was saddened I never made it around to visit all of them…but Brides do come first you know! Meeting and talking with Brides is something that I cannot ever get enough of. There’s a happiness and a spirit they exude that’s a mood boosting force unlike any other.
So, here’s a few of the images I was able to capture in the middle of all the Bridal Fair fun. The vendor list of those shown is listed at the bottom. Check out their sites, or shoot them an email, and tell them that I sent ya!
