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.

Tracey Buyce takes a photojournalistic but unobtrusive approach to wedding photography. Her clients often note that they barely notice her at their celebrations. With a combination of formal and candid shots Tracey captures the beauty of your story. She has been praised as "more of an artist than a wedding photographer" and in 2010, was named as the "Saratoga Local's Choice Award." Every event she photographs is instantly captured with the utmost style, creativity, and elegance.


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.

Amy Russo and Brian Renna met more than thirty-five years ago. Their fathers were lifelong friends, and Amy and Brian grew up attending each others' birthday parties and playing together at their dads' softball games. As they got older, they saw each other less frequently.

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.

How can you not love a vintage-inspired engagement shoot? These two just look so in love and the vintage finish gives the photo a timeless quality - so cute!
