It’s smack dab in the middle of wedding season and while we’ve been super busy (and happily so!), we’ve also been a bit neglectful on the blog (our bad). To give you a snapshot, the past few weeks have brought venue walk-through’s, client planning meetings and three new Lovely Day weddings booked – all in 2013! We’re over the moon and can’t wait for the coming months but we’re also excited to get back to sharing the fun things we’ve been up to.
We had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with some incredible vendor partners for a fabulous all-hands-on-deck styled shoot in June. We’re very inspired by the lasting farm-to-table, locavore, sustainable trend and we wanted to showcase ways to incorporate the concept into wedding design. Our vision was to create a beautiful, natural, farm-feeling setting, focusing on the environment of the shoot. We set a gorgeous table scape in a pasture at Barberry Hill Farm in Madison CT, home to weddings, local events and the popular (and delicious) Dinners at the Farm series each summer. New England Country Rentals hooked us up with rustic furniture and vintage linens, we built a custom “chandelier” out of a reclaimed window frame and Stems Flower Design provided a show-stopping floral runner and bouquets for our gorgeous models, beautified for the day by the team at Simply Gorgeous by Erin. Nichole of Coral Pheasant designed a custom invitation suite and day-of paper with pops of bright color, and our beautiful gowns and accessories were provided by A Little Something White Bridal Couture and Happily Ever Borrowed. Here’s a glimpse into our inspiration:
1. Cream lace napkins you might find at grandmothers house
2. The perfect touch of sparkle with a jeweled cuff
3. Vintage seed packet inspiration for our paper suite
4. Floral crowns and fresh faces
5. Perfectly pink in-season peonies
6. Silver beaded chargers add sophistication to a rustic farm table
7. Fresh herbs – like this rosemary sprig – picked from the farm beds
8. Unique lace gowns, like the Georgina by Kelly Faetanini
9. Copper-dipped flatware
10. Dough bowls filled with farm bounty
The entire day was captured by Eric Foley Photography and Vantage Point Films, and we have the behind-the-scenes footage to share with you today! We’re SO excited to share the video – just click HERE – and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments! Enjoy!
