It’s official. Fall is here and I am loving every minute of it. And this photo shoot, captured by the amazingly talented Carla Ten Eyck is Fall at it’s finest.
The shoot was done at the Tyrone Farm in Connecticut with the always fabulous Candice Dowling of Jubilee Events doing the event styling. Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore did all of the fashions (which are STUNNING by the way). The ridiculously lovely florals were crafted by Jane Rynaski of Just for You Weddings and the hair/make-up was done by Catie Bane of Dana Barton’s Salon.
We really wanted to use anthropologie’s signature vintage / modern look as the inspiration for our shoot. The shoot was also inspired by the rustic location and fall season. Tyrone Farm was an amazing location to use – it’s nestled on a hill in Pomfret, Connecticut and overlooks the tree tops of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. They have an amazing property, complete with a farm house, tented blue stone patio, organic gardens, cottage, and the barn.
The flower girls held these amazing cute little yellow floral wands by Maihar Design. Jane designed these cute headbands with yellow and white flowers, berries and acorns. The ruffled tulle antique stained bolero that Kelley wore with her Manual Motta gown was made by BONZIE, a handmade clothing store with a lot of vintage style. –Candice
In styling the fashion for the shoot, the inspiration was eclectic elegance with a vintage flair. Our concept was to take vintage pieces and show how they can be incorporated into modern wedding day attire. We also pulled in accessories that were new, but had an antique vibe to them to evoke a 1940’s feel. The shoot had the perfect balance between rustic and elegant. We choose gowns with texture to play off of the rustic surroundings, but added a touch of sparkle to bring in a bit of Hollywood glam. –Beth
SO much more to come!!
