Tartan and Tulle

  Here we are at The Winvian in Connecticut, immersing ourselves in a bit of fashion inspiration by Beth Chapman of The White Dress, with event design by Stacie Shea Events. Such a clever combination, Tartan and Tulle! Tradition and girlie-whimsy combined! 
  I may be the only one, but I have just LOVED how much snow we've had this year! It's soooooo beautiful. I even threw my snowy white dog into this shoot as she seemed thematically appropriate.  
  These images were shot with a combination of digital and film cameras. See more on Style Me Pretty today!

Methodist Minister fights the Church for Gay Rights

 I had the great honor last year of photographing the wedding of Nick Haddad and Tom Ogletree. They had a beautiful, classic NY wedding at the Yale Club, filled with white floral arrangements, gourmet cuisine, and a classic black and white color scheme. Tom's Dad, officiated the wedding and gave a lovely sermon in what was an emotion-filled room.
 Soon after, though, Tom's father, a Methodist Minister who spent years as the dean of Yale Divinity School, faced a church trial after for officiating the wedding of his gay son. Read all about the settlement, and the inspiring story of Tom's Dad's fight for gay rights in the NY Times today!
 My favorite quote was this:
“I was inspired,” Dr. Ogletree said. “I actually wasn’t thinking of this as an act of civil disobedience or church disobedience. I was thinking of it as a response to my son.”
