We're loving the pops of color in this beautiful Burr Homestead June wedding. It's a refreshing change from the muted pastels and greens we've been seeing (don't get us wrong, we love those too!). Soft waves, fresh faces and bright lips for this bridal party!
Sorry for the radio silence over here! We haven't posted in what feels like forever, mostly because we've been super busy with trials, we went on a little get away (yay for sunshine + palm trees!) and then jumped full swing into wedding season!
So far, the season is off to an amazing start. We have so many beautiful weddings to look forward to this year, along with a bit of travel to NY, VT, RI + NH. We're so lucky to have a sweet group of girls who are now part of the Upstyle team + and are thankful everyday that we get to work with such incredible brides.
Back in October, we got the chance to collaborate with some awesome vendors. The outcome? DREAMY photo's and a feature on Wedding Sparrow - one of our favorite blogs (!!!). If you haven't checked out their site, we highly recommend scrolling through for some serious wedding inspiration.
The shoot took place at Eddy Farm - a beautiful location in CT that we've become super fond of over the last year + will be returning for our girl Victoria's wedding this coming August. Inspired by Andrew Wyeth's beautiful paintings, curated by Always Yours Events + Photographed by Callie Manion Photography, this day was one for the books. You can read all about it here <3

There's just something about the New England shore during the winter months. Props to the ladies for braving the bitter cold, because these are stunning! We were so excited to be included as the beauty arm on this project to help Ashley's vision come to life. We'll let the images speak for themselves xo
Last month, on a Monday - we got our newly formed group of like-minded beauty gurus together for a photoshoot with our friend Victoria of L'amour Fou Wedding (follow her!) who graciously offered her time and skill, shooting new portraits of us in our studio. (Thanks Girl, We're obsessed!)
without further a-do, meet the team! These ladies are committed to making our brides
shine their brightest on one of the happiest days of their lives.
