I knew I had to share these stunning images with you right around the holiday; there’s no better time! Meagan from Meagan Emilia Photography perfectly captured the spirit of the holidays and the magic and love of the season through these images. Enjoy the shots and read on to see how this shoot came together!

This past winter, I was involved in a styled shoot put together by Erin Spinner of Hoehl to the Mrs. Planning Services. The theme, Luxurious Winter Wonderland. So, of course, I had to be involved!

The shoot was on Erin’s family property right on Lake Champlain in Vermont. We were so lucky to have a beautiful, sunshiny day with fresh fallen snow on the ground. It made the setting a perfect backdrop for the theme of the shoot. But, Vermont winters don’t joke around; I will never forget the cold, blustery wind shooting through all of us… especially the models!

I decided to finally unveil a stationery collection that I had been developing for quite a while; the Woodstock Collection. Even though this stationery collection was inspired by the quaint village of Woodstock and the gilded, luxurious, chic rustic vibes from the Woodstock Inn, I knew that design would be perfect for this shoot.

The Woodstock Collection uses a custom plaid design that I created using watercolors and drawings and incorporates a customized venue sketch. For this specific shoot, I drew the beautiful home where the photo shoot was taking place and used that drawing for the tops of the invitations.

Paired with unexpected, yet beautiful details like gold envelopes and a plaid patterned envelope liner, the Invitation suite came together perfectly for this styled shoot!

And of course, this shoot wouldn’t have been possible without all of the other vendors who provided STUNNING, beautiful work and artistry. To learn more about all of the elements that were brought together for this shoot, please see the captions under the images and the vendor list below.

I am always so honored to be a part of these styled shoots. In the wedding industry, styled shoots let the vendors showcase their talents and creativity in an entirely different way. And, of course, it allows us to put faces to names, network, and create and curate together. Thank you Erin for including me and for all of the other vendors who made this possible!

Enjoy the photos and Happy Holidays!
