Winter in Maine

A super sweet inspiration shoot to share with you all this Thursday morning all the way from across the Atlantic.  We may be pining for long summer days, but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you winter brides!  While we probably best know Maine as the perfect location for a New England inspired wedding, this shoot from Cait Kimball Photography was inspired by cold, crisp Maine winters. With simple styling, beautiful light, a gorgeous vintage lace dress and touches of gold adding hints of warmth, this is perfect inspiration for a winter wedding!

We wanted to create a vintage inspired winter bridal session capturing the beauty of winter and the lovely natural light.  Winters here in Maine can be quite bone chilling, but we had a beautiful day to go play in the snow and take some gorgeous shots.  We wanted a simple palette, natural but elegant. I wanted it to look as natural and simple as possible.

As much as we love big extravagant weddings, we wanted to keep it simplistic and show that there is beauty in being natural, so we kept things simple and just picked the flowers from my yard before the session.

I found the dress in a charity shop for $4, thrifting at it’s finest!  Stacia gave Savannah a natural look, nothing too dramatic to take away from the feel of the shoot. We kept her eyeshadow a neutral grey/brown, and lips a lovely blush pink. Her hair was naturally curly and gorgeous, so we kept that as is!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
