I’m proud to live in the Berkshires, I grew up here and returned to raise  a family. Every day I’m amazed by the rural beauty we have surrounding us and appreciate the culture that this area attracts. It’s rustic elegance is what attracts so many to get married here in the Berkshire Mountains and with some of the most talented vendors in wedding industry available right here, a wedding of their dreams is easily achievable for any couple. After a successful Styled Shoot last spring that featured local vendors and helped potential brides and grooms get an idea about how the right mix of professionals could create a beautiful wedding, I decided it to do it again!  I enlisted some people I worked with during the busy 2012 wedding season.  In the end we created something beyond expectations and I can’t wait to share it with you here. The Styled Shoot was set in the beautiful venue of Hancock Shaker Village . Our stylist Tara Consolati created 2 shoots in one day for us. One featured a preppy, modern, colorful look perfectly juxtapose to the farm setting. Our beautiful model Liane was a dream to work with and looked stunning in a patterned white dress from The Cotton Bride . Her colorful bouquet of wildflowers from Bella Flora was the perfect accessory. We also captured a vintage look and  beautiful Molly wore a lace A-line dress from The Cotton Bride and carried a delicate pastel bouquet wrapped in burlap that was created by Carolyn Valenti. The team of professionals mentioned below ROCKED it on a chilly spring day despite the elements that included  shooting in the rain. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about the day,  it was a blast to showcase the talents of this group. Here are the names and businesses of those that were part of the day. All this talent in one blogpost….that’s amazing!!! I can’t thank you enough.
