Sustainable Engagement Rings

The bride's engagement and wedding rings were also from Laura Preshong who I adore because she sells exquisite, delicate rings that are also ethically made. She uses certified recycled metals, Canadian and No-Conflict diamonds, and lab-grown diamonds all from US based suppliers. And all the rings are made within 50 miles of Boston, MA. It was very important to me when I was buying my own wedding and engagement rings to buy something that was sustainable and ethically made and I believe this also becoming more important to future generations as well. I also loved the idea of supporting a local artist instead of a chain.

The Bridal Look

The bride wore the gorgeous Coral dress from the designer Chic Nostalgia that was adorned with a floral elements and lends itself perfectly to the upscale boho bridal look that we were going for. The Bridal Boutique that the dress came from, Vieira Luxe Designer Dress Outlet , is one of my personal favorites because it sells high end dresses, but with a sustainable twist. Vieira Luxe sells lightly used floor samples as well as unused inventory from various dress shops in order to reduce waste and promote sustainable fashion. The hair accessory and earrings that the bride wore were custom pieces made by Vieira Luxe.

Family Owned Apple Orchard

This styled shoot took place at Carlson Orchards in Harvard, Massachusetts on a beautiful sunny November day. Carlson Orchards has been a family owned apple orchard since the 1930s and is full of classic New England charm with rolling farm fields and apple trees as far as the eye can see. The new addition of their cider barn serves as a great place to host intimate weddings with an updated rustic-industrial feel, perfect for hipster and boho brides a like.


The cider barn is where Carlson Orchards makes all their own homemade cider, cider inspired cocktails (think old fashions and mojitos with a cider twist), and has classics like cider doughnuts made on site. You can also part-take in cider flights, which adds a fun laid back element to the wedding. that is unique to the venue. The ceremony location was located between the rows of apple trees in the orchard right off the cider barn with the sun streaming through all the golden leaves, which makes for a perfect natural aisle and creates a very cozy setting where you can be surrounded by your nearest and dearest. The custom cocktail signs, invitations, and name cards were designed by Erin Dubay of Dubay Photography .
