From Kay English… Kay English, ReverieMade and Congress Hall collaborated on this inspiration wedding photoshoot. We were inspired by Lilly Pulitzer and bright cheerful colors for a destination beach wedding. Congress Hall is a historic hotel in Cape May, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States, occupying a city block bordered on the south by Beach Avenue and on the east by Washington Street Mall. It is a contributing building in the Cape May National Historic District. Several Presidents have stayed at the location including Ulysses S. Grant. Many celebrities also frequent the hall. This was the perfect backdrop for a summer resort wedding. The interiors at Congress Hall, including the vintage couch, were the perfect decor for a resort wedding. Lilly Pulitzer inspired fabrics and table linens added the perfect ambience to the shore setting.
The shoot was inspired to bring out the charm of Congress Hall in a ‘Jackie O in the Hamptons’ way. Bright, preppy colors mixed with classic silhouettes. The mostly-peony bouquet by Reverie Made, was fluffy and bright, and the boutonnière complemented the Vineyard Vines bowtie. The centerpieces added the perfect pop of color to the mod navy linens.
Unique wedding colors inspiration with bright reds, pinks and Navy in a modern style with the elegant look. Gorgeous beaded gown and many photos taken on film below. Unique wedding invitations and gorgeous couch with croquet, ice cream and tablescape.
