Flower Child | Styled Wedding Inspiration

 

The Hud­son Val­ley may be cov­ered with snow, but we’re already think­ing spring and sum­mer with these inspi­ra­tional, flower-filled images by Due­tim­age Pho­tog­ra­phy made in col­lab­o­ra­tion with some of the Hud­son Valley’s most tal­ent­ed wed­ding pros: Bar­bara Kern­er of Styles des Reves Cus­tom Dress­mak­ing; Den­nis Nut­ley of The Green Cot­tage; David Urso of David Urso Jew­el­ry; Brid­gette Lewis of Sig­na­ture Braids; Karen Schrowang of LaV Beau­ty; Lyn­da Laes­ta­dius of Ground­ed Cater­ing; and spe­cial thanks to Lydia Bai­ley of Charmed Places and The Bell Tow­er wed­ding venue in Rosendale.

This styled ses­sion began with a wed­ding pantsuit for con­fi­dent, take-charge brides designed by Bar­bara Kern­er worn by our love­ly mod­el Chloe O’Shaugnessy.  Here like the Greek god­dess Flo­ra she is emerg­ing from her long winter’s sleep from the walk-in cool­er at The Green Cot­tage where most of the fol­low­ing images were pho­tographed in High Falls.

Now it’s time to pre­pare for a flower-filled spring­time wed­ding.  Brid­gette Lewis of Sig­na­ture Braids cre­at­ed this free-spir­it­ed updo bound with a sim­ple, wide silk rib­bon.  Karen Schrowang’s ever-so-sub­tle make­up artistry (a hall­mark of LaV Beau­ty) enhanced Chloe’s fea­tures while main­tain­ing a nat­ur­al, yet ele­gant look.

The Green Cot­tage is the per­fect place for brides to shop for acces­sories thanks to the in-house jew­el­ry designs of David Urso whose unique pieces help to make your wed­ding a one of a kind affair.

Now it’s time for some phone calls to get the rest of the wed­ding plans under­way.  Here we are with Chloe in the office of the Green Cot­tage where brides can sit down to dis­cuss their flo­ral designs.
