Happy Halloween, Vermont Vows and WellWed readers! Was anyone else a bride for Halloween as a little girl? Take this opportunity to indulge in some tasty sweets and treats and have a great holiday!


Every bride is glowing on their wedding day - but that's no reason to resist enriching your hair with a little extra shine. This week's bridal booty consists of Ted Gibson styling products including Hair Sheets, Clarity Color Shampoo, and Clarity Color Conditioner. Especially handy for brides, the Hair Sheets give hair a sophisticated and effortless look, as well as a formula rich in vitamins and silk amino acids.


Ira Lippke of Ira Lippke Studios grew up in a bohemian family, traveling around the country in a converted school bus. By 14 he had discovered photography and was taking advantage of his unconventional outdoor classroom. As his family traveled, the Olympic rain forest, orchards in Eastern Washington and Telluride, Colorado all shaped the aesthetic of the budding photographer. Today Ira Lippke Studios is based in New York and Los Angeles and is know for a fine art documentary vision applied to international issues, fine art projects, weddings and fashion.


One of the best parts of working for a wedding magazine is getting the chance to see all of the beautiful images that were taken over the last wedding season. These inspire us to pursue romance, and occasionally make our hearts swoon. These are just a small handful of our favorites from recent days.

We received this photo shoot in the mail recently and as soon as we started looking through the images, we were swooning. Romantic and charming, chic and ethereal, this photo shoot has a soft equestrian theme to it. We love the soft colors, the breeziness of everything, and of course that gorgeous horse.

Once again, the fabulous people over at Project Wedding knock one out of the park! These table numbers are so sweetly romantic, and a perfect excuse to visit copious amounts of yard sales, thrift stores, and antique shops - our favorite activity!
