This epic style shoot was inspired by the British smash-hit Downton Abbey.We gathered a team of wedding gurus (links below) and designed a ravishing palette of pale pinks, yellows, peaches and added a splash of Marsala and tons of greenery to bring our vision to life. We incorporated authentic antique pieces and paired them with current fine bone china to give this shoot the essence of a Royal wedding. With over-the-top floral arrangements, gowns and shoes to die for, We are certain you'll love this shoot as much as we do!
The first half of the shoot focuses on earlier fashions c.1914 with long gowns, Cathedral veils and up-do's. The second half of half of the shoot is post WWI (c. 1920) fashions where women began to wear their hair down, chose shorter dresses and started to show some skin!
We are thrilled this shoot was featured in the fall 2015 issue of the Wedding Ring's magazine as a featured spread as well as on the cover! Check it out online here.

Kristen and Rob are such a great couple and I knew I'd love every minute of their wedding day! We lucked out and despite some overcast skies had no rain and captured the beautiful fall colours! These two and their wedding party had so much fun all day long, and even with a slight dress mishap (the bride's dress got run over and ripped!!!) everyone kept smiling and soaked in every wonderful minute! Thanks for asking us to capture your big day!!
