This beautiful real couple engagement photo shoot captured by the talented Justin Tearney has us looking forward to all of the weddings coming up this year! The love is SO evident in this couple's eyes. We absolutely love the shots where the enchanting setting sun's rays are shining on the couple. It sets a romantic and whimsical mood. The woods and mountain terrain add for a gorgeous backdrop as well. We really like how Trisha's hair is styled in whimsical, long waves for this shoot. It follows the romantic, simplistic theme. And the color she chose for her dress brings out the stunning shade of blue of her eyes.
We hope you enjoy this shoot as much as we do!

This editorial captured by Katy Trefry Photography is inspired by the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet. Full of enchantment and romance, this piece captures the essence of young love. We absolutely love the gowns featured in this piece. They are both elegant, yet trendy. Don't feel like you must wear only one dress on your special day! Many brides are deciding to wear one dress to the ceremony, and a more simplistic one to the reception.
We hope this whimsical editorial enchants you as much as it does us!

Color Inspires us. Whether vibrant or subtle, color enhances everything. The colors we choose say a lot about personal style. Brides are experimenting with color in their dress, shoes, jewelry and bouquet. A touch of color will make a big impact.
You can incorporate all of your favorite colors into your wedding. For example, use one color to highlight the ceremony, another for the reception. It's the wedding industry's interpretation of color blocking, which continues to make a high fashion statement!
Embrace your color choices! We hope this editorial captured by Katy Trefry Photography inspires you as you create your own Dream Wedding!

Hello June! One of the most popular months for weddings, June can bring with it sunshine and warm breezes for a romantic, whimsical celebration. It can also bring a ton of heat and humidity as well as thunderstorms! So hope for the gorgeousness but PLAN for the worst. Here are a few tips for ensuring you're covered and guests are comfortable for your big day:
If you're planning an outdoor ceremony be sure to look for a spot with plenty of shade. It allows you to seat your guests where they aren't hit with direct sunlight so they can be comfortable while they watch you say your vows. Also, when you tour your venue, take note of where the sun is at the time of day you'll be getting married. Overhead sunlight is flattering to NO ONE in photos. And sun in the face can mean you're squinting in every single candid moment caught on camera. Stage your ceremony so that you're also not blinded while you stand there.
Provide refreshment stations throughout the venue grounds for guests as they move from the ceremony, to any activities you have planned for them, to the reception. Style the stations with paper straws in your wedding colors or fruits & florals that match your theme. Remember to add details that enhance your overall style but make those details functional for everyone's comfort.
If your reception is in a tent without air conditioning, consider providing paper fans for your guests at each seat so they can cool themselves while they sit and listed to the toasts and watch you dance together for the first time. Again, have the fans created with your monogram on them and ensure they match your theme.
Lastly, and we can't stress this point enough: Remember to have a backup plan for the entire day...ceremony and reception. The weather can be volatile in June. If there's a huge downpour, where will you and all of your guests go if you don't have plan B? Either choose a venue that provides an indoor space in the event of inclement weather or have another indoor space on standby.
Having your June nuptials thoroughly planned to keep your guests as well as yourselves comfortable will allow you to relax and enjoy the day, no matter what mother nature brings!
