Nancy Gorman, owner of Makeup by Nancy A Bohemian Chic style wedding has become a popular trend and lately and, we, a group of New England wedding professionals collaborated together and created a styled shoot that provided a different twist on it then the normal neutrals, greens and cream colors. We wanted to keep with the eclectic mix of hippie {peace & love}, nomad and gypsy lifestyle with an artistic flair. We chose to use deep purple, burgundy and white as the primary colors with added splashes of vibrant pinks, oranges and greens for an eye-catching pop of color. To…

A small group of New England wedding…

By Nancy Gorman, owner of Makeup by Nancy The wedding day has arrived, and while you knew it would eventually, you can’t help but feel both happy and sad. The sadness is because your baby is all grown up and the happiness is in knowing they have found their one true love. The wedding planning is a whirlwind and everything is much different than when you planned your own. For example, now everyone gets ready together – makeup artists and hair stylist are brought in to ensure everyone looks their best. Now, your nerves kick in – what if you…

We adore today’s winter antique wedding inspiration.  It actually took place inside an antique shop, we love the fact they used old trinkets and props for the shoot – the perfect something old for a wedding day. “Inspired by the idea of keeping things fresh all winter, I styled this shoot using lots of greenery, beautiful leather hides and natural elements.  We set up in a brand new antique shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan called Vintage on Lake Drive, used all the trinkets in the store and added tons of candles as the perfect backdrop for the shoot and created a nice…

To make sure things run…
