Who says you can’t throw on a floor-length gown and have an evening to remember with your favorite couple friends?  This New Years Eve inspired styled shoot was a mix of sophisticated yet fun and playful. The looks were created to compliment each of the ladies dress choices ranging from romantic updos to styling natural curls. Makeup was glamorous and fun with lashes and light shimmers to compliment the NYE them.

This shoot took place at one of the most beautiful boutique hotels in the New England area, Blue Inn on the Beach.

The backdrop provided crashing waves and an afternoon sunset filled with the dreamiest of colors. Each couple took time for portraits with their feet in the sand while Freebird

Photography captured effortless moments with their gorgeous dresses flowing in the salty air. Once the couples completed their sandy walks it was time to pop the bubbly and enjoy a table set for six with the most breathtaking views.

The table filled with floral details, matte gold flatware and custom watercolor name cards brought the afternoon to the most glamorous of levels. Whoopie Pies were brought in as an ending sweet treat from a local favorite (and also a favorite by Oprah), Chococoa Bakery. These small, rich delicacies brought a little extra sugar to our already sweet couples. The evening was then proceeded by (you guessed it) a bit more bubbly on the deck overlooking the ocean. Sparklers were then distributed to the couples for that final photo and one last toast to a lovely afternoon creating the most beautiful inspiration for NYE celebrations to come!
