Happy St. Patty’s Day! In honor of our favorite color here, we are posting some fun green ideas starting off with a gorgeous green dress! Shannon + Tom are engaged and planning a wedding in Steamboat Springs Co this July. Their engagement session with this green vintage dress is the perfect inspiration for bringing some green into your wedding – with a green dress.
From Heather (the photographer) “We brought in this incredibly old mantle and just like in a home, added sweet little vases with assorted flowers to add a little spring color and pop against our brown, fall-like background. My mom let us borrow (from her vintage clothing collection – Memory Lane Fashions) the amazing kelly green, chiffon dress from the 40s. If fit Shannon with perfection! The fur stole was a must – it was chilly!”
Thanks so much to these St. Louis vendors for putting together this fun shoot for us today!

Anyone planning on wearing a green wedding dress?
I almost got the Vera Wang Didi ya have in here, Jen! It’s my favorite. Like sleep in it at night favorite.
These photos are gorgeous!
Beautiful dress… I love the ruffles on top, and the boldness of it!
How fun! Love that old mantle in the woods, makes for some great pictures!
I personally wouldn’t wear green, but I do love the idea of coloured wedding dresses. Who says you need to get married in white?
Love this shoot by HSR and Yara! They did a fab job with the details!
I’ll be wearing green shoes! :)
Oh My, how enchantingly lovely. It is so picturesque.
Green Wedding Shoes… how appropriate :) I LOVE a colored shoe!!!
Green is my favorite color ever since I can remember but I wouldn’t imagine myself wearing a green dress in my wedding day.
Ill be wearing green wedding shoes too ! :)
Not wearing a green wedding DRESS, but I am wearing a tea-length dress with a hand-dyed green petticoat underneath that will be peeking out! :-)
I loved the setting and the creativity of the photos. The green is gorgeous the models are very animated. Lovely photos!
Oh I love this shoot. And the green dress is so fun for an engagement session. And that pale green Vera is stunning!!
I’m wearing a charcoal gray dress with a vintage doily shrug! Love to see other brides in colored dresses….beautiful shoot!
Jen! Thank you for featuring our shoot! I just love it and feel so lucky today. :)
All my best,
how cute!!! the dress is beautiful!
My parents were married in 1976. My mom didn’t want a massive wedding, and opted for something a little less formal. She wore a light green formal dress instead of a wedding gown, and I think it was perfect!
I’m getting married in August and my wedding is very DIY. A friend gave me her wedding dress and said I could do anything to it. I actually wanted to try and dye it pale aqua, but that would be a HUGE undertaking and I just don’t feel confident in my abilities. Instead, I’ve tea stained some lace that I”m using as a top layer.
love this every little bit of this shoot!!
Beautiful shoot- I love the green dress!
Beautiful photos… I just hope that fur shrug is faux fur, not the real thing
So beautiful green wedding dress, looks fresh and a very sexy
Thank goodness for this entry! I’ve been thinking of wearing a green wedding dress and having my bridesmaids in ivory/cream and this solidified that for me! Gorgeous :)
