When photographer Lauren Alisse found out her best friend Callie was getting married she knew exactly how she wanted to photograph the boho-beauty. Then the bride asked her to be her Maid-of-honor! Despite it sounding impossible, she pulled out being both the MOH and the photographer for the wedding (thanks to a second-shooter friend). The entire wedding was a group effort of friends and family coming together to make it all happen. A bridesmaid hand crafted the centerpieces out of dried flowers and drift wood that the groom's mother collected. She also made decorations out of wooden circles and yarn - perfect for a bohemian feel! Callie, the bride, purchased fabric from a local shop in Burlington and attached them to mason jars with the help of her mother and another bridesmaid. Lauren also made the bridesmaid's bouquets out of babys breath, and Callie's mom made a handkerchief for her to carry down the aisle as her "something new".
This gorgeous indigo and silver inspiration is one of our favorite features of the Summer/Fall 2016 issue of Vermont Bride magazine. Indigo is a deep and vibrant hue that has many variations in tone, from electric to tropical. Originating in India, it also has the distinction of being one of the world's first widely used dyes for fabrics and textiles. With such an exotic history, it is no surprise that indigo pairs well with lustrous and sparkly silver. The cool tones of silver cut through the depth of indigo for a balance and contrast that is elegant and regal.
