Top 10 Weddings, Engagements and Styled Shoots of 2012

As we bid 2012 farewell and look forward to 2013, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share my top 10 favorite posts on Artfully Wed this year – enjoy!

10. Vintage Bed and Breakfast Styled Shoot

I love the vintage film look in these photos from Patrick Hadley Photography at Keswick Manor and the Historic Webster House in Bay City, Michigan (two old mansions owned by lumber barons).

9. Mad Hatter Bride Styled Shoot

This fantastical table setting is a unique interpretation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Alyssa Marie Photography. I particularly love the melting clocks and the white rabbit!

8. Deb + Drew at Philadelphia Zoo

A wedding with a giraffe. Enough said. But seriously, this Philadelphia Zoo wedding captured by Castell Photography is so unique and fun!

7. Little Red Riding Hood Styled Shoot

Little Red Riding Hood sure is looking good in this autumn styled shoot from Nicole Chan Photography – she even had a Siberian Husky as her Wolf and ring bearer!

6. Steampunk Styled Shoot

Steampunk is a bold choice for a wedding, and this inspiration shoot from Deanna McCollum Photography does an incredible job blending steampunk elements (i.e. copper cogs and gears) with elegant purple wedding details.

Shannon May Photography pulled together this styled shoot with DIY elements from local artists and businesses in New Brunswick – I love every cozy detail!

4. Jamie + Brent’s Paint War Engagement

I love a couple that’s not afraid to get creative and a little bit messy in the process! This cute paint war e-shoot is from Yvonne Denault Photography.

3. Patricia + Mike at The Farmhouse Mansion

This Oktoberfest-inspired San Fran wedding by Sonya Yruel Photography would definitely qualify as my “wedding do-over” – my husband loves craft beers, so he’d be in heaven. I’d just have to add some wine in there!

2. Lani + Kevin’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s Engagement

The perfect little black dress, oversized sunglasses, pearls, gloves and the Tiffany’s window – all the elements you need for the quintessential Breakfast at Tiffany’s engagement session! This was captured by Danfredo Photography.
