Bringing an extra dose of holiday magic to your feed, we’re so excited to finally share this country Christmas styled shoot from Allyson Whitney Designs! The modern yet rustic backdrop of The Dowry‘s white wood beamed walls and stained concrete floors were elegantly juxtaposed with traditional and festive decor. Towering arrangements of evergreen branches, red and white roses and holly berries were the perfect match for the table’s Christmas classic color scheme, incorporating elements of trend-conscious decor in the mixed metal flatware and mismatched place settings. Taking on the idea of country chic meets both timeless and trendy, Mishelle Handy Cakes helped create a cake to combine the best of all of these with a layered, nearly-naked design topped with fruits in bold hues like cranberries, grapes, pomegranate and a pear. Capturing the festivities, Tammy Odell Photography posed the model bride in the golden afternoon light of the barn-like venue’s rural outdoor setting. Her lace appliqué strapless gown paired perfectly with a stylish white fur stole – the ideal accessory for winter brides to keep the late month’s evening chill at bay. A tufted forest green velvet couch provided an ideal seating area to dress up the outdoor scene, while the table scene was then moved outside to show options for a cheery holiday themed wedding ideal for both indoors and out! Cheers!

From the planner: “This holiday shoot was inspired by an elegant Christmas with rustic tones. We wanted to create a different look for the December bride looking for a unique but traditional style.”

Danielle and Slade’s Surprise Proposal Party Captured by Sheradee Hurst Photography

This heart-warming engagement story shot by Sheradee Hurst Photography is giving us butterflies! Danielle and Slade’s engagement went off without a hitch all thanks to the incredible team at Inspire Events who worked tirelessly to make sure every aspect was perfect. From making sure the ring was nestled in Slade’s pocket in time, to coordinating the set up of the most magical party tent, Talia Morgan, the owner of Inspire, and her crew were truly the glue that brought this dreamy proposal together. Even with flawless decor, delectable catering and an incredible venue provided by some of our favorite local vendors, we can’t seem to take our eyes off of this adorable couple. Keep scrolling to see Danielle and Slade’s engagement story unfold!

Slade custom ordered the most dazzling ring, but low and behold it’s delivery wasn’t scheduled until the week after the date he and Talia had decided on and already coordinated with the other vendors involved in the proposal. With a quick phone call from Talia, the jeweler put the ring on a rush order and had it there in no time!

Danielle’s mother’s birthday being just a few weeks prior to the proposal date served as the perfect catapult. Danielle’s mother told her a few friends were throwing her a party and that she and Slade should stop by for the celebration – the perfect rouse! Meanwhile, Inspire Events made sure Danielle looked beautiful for the big day by creating faux promo material for a local team of professional makeup and hair designers, and having a friend tell her that she had won a drawing for a free day of beauty! On the day of the supposed birthday party, Danielle and her friend took off work early to get dolled up for the evening’s festivities. Little did Danielle know she would be the star of the show!

While the girls were getting their glam on, the videographer was getting set up at Broadway 10, the restaurant the couple would go to before the party. Inspire had organized a special seating arrangement for Danielle and Slade that put them in the perfect position for the camera crew. At exactly 6:15 pm, Slade was to excuse himself to the restroom to get mic’d up for the soon-to-follow proposal!

As the couple left the restaurant, guests were gathering under a gorgeous tent at The Red Barn on Waldo’s Pond. Stunning decor from Marianne’s Rentals along with beautiful stationary and signage by Hazel Paper Co. set the romantic tone for the evening. Blue Label Bartenders and Abbey Rd Catering provided the most fabulous drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and Amy Cakes made the eye-popping three-tiered cake with the prettiest cake topper that read, “She Said Yes!”

Sheradee Hurst Photography was, quite literally, hiding in trees, anxiously awaiting the perfect shot as the couple arrived and was greeted by the valet, none other than Talia’s husband! Danielle had no idea!

Walking toward the entrance of the venue, Slade gently pulled on Danielle’s hand to turn her attention back to him and got down on one knee. He popped the question, and she, of course, completely surprised and overjoyed, said yes! The couple then rounded the back of the house to find all of their loved ones ready to celebrate.

Danielle and Slade’s engagement was a night to remember with the help of such wonderful vendors! Cheers to this darling couple!
