From The Styled Bride and Rebecca Yale Photography….Danielle and Kyle were married on June 4th, 2016 at the Ashford Estate. Danielle and Kyle both work in New York City as buyers in the fashion industry, Danielle at Bloomingdales and Kyle at Ralph Lauren. Fashion was a very important element to them for their wedding day. They both attended NYU, but did not meet until after graduation at a local bar. The bride and groom picked the lovely Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ as it was the perfect distance between their two families and an easy drive for their friends in New York City. The day was planned and styled to perfection by The Styled Bride. Guests gathered on a sunny Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a pre-ceremony drink in the courtyard before being welcomed into the light filled white barn, decked out in lush florals and candles by Sullivan Owen. The bride and groom recited vows they wrote themselves in matching his and her vow notebooks. Guests were invited to enjoy cocktail hour in the conservatory and out on the patio as golden hour set in. Guests were then welcomed into the reception by the Craig Scott Orchestra, which was bathed in candlelight and leafy green florals.

The estate has the elegant feel of a French chateau, which the bride and groom played into with their delicately calligraphed invitations that carried through to all the paper goods of the day- program, escort cards and menu by Written Word Calligraphy. Guests received a wedding welcome bag with a welcome letter and wedding day (and day after) essentials kit from the bride and groom. The bride wore a intricately detailed beaded gown by Monique Lhuillier with matching veil with blush and gold tones weaved in. The dress was paired with Valentino Rock Stud heels in nude to give the look a little edge and a vintage beaded clutch. The bride’s bouquet and boutonnieres created by the Sullivan Owen were soft and organic with long trailing ribbons featuring peonies, roses and blushing bride- one of the bride’s favorite flowers. The bride and groom exchanged letters and presents before the first look, the bride gifting the groom new sunglasses, which he wore throughout the day.

The bride and groom had their first look in front of the estate as their parents and wedding party watched through the large glass windows. Bridesmaids wore lovely off the shoulder grey gowns while the groomsmen looked sharp in their black tuxes. The couple honored their families by having a memory table with photographs from their parents and grandparents weddings set at a table by the entrance and a 4 of those grandparents were in attendance at the wedding. Guests danced the night away and enjoyed the old fashioned photo booth before joining the couple for a sparkler send off and an after party in the library with snow cones, hot dogs and favors of Momofuku Milk Bar truffle cake balls.

Gorgeous Gowns, Golden Sunshine, Vintage Treasures — This Inspiration Shoot Has It All

Kay English Photography must possess some kind of magic fairy dust because all of her gorgeous photos radiate pretty, and her photographs from this inspiration shoot is no exception. With gorgeous gowns, vintage furniture and treasures throughout, and stunning blooms, this editorial is nothing short of magical. See all the pretty in The Vault!


From Kay English PhotographyLBB Styled shoot with DIY selfie wall inspiration as well as organic bouquets, perfect pear tablescape, DIY headboard into a bench table, refurbished dinner chairs.

Brides are loving a little homespun charm for their big day and romantically re-purposed pieces are the perfect way to add a personal touch that is undeniably you!

Re-purposed and re-designed vintage props and decor are finding their way into every aspect of weddings. Everything from vintage doors, old shutters, antique bureaus and suitcases are serving a purpose. Re-claimed palette wood bars, love it! Old shutters as table runners? Why Knot? They add the perfect touch of rustic charm to your table-scape. Your grandma’s old dresser as a cake table? Sweet! Vintage double door ceremony arch? Oh so unexpected!

Check out this Styled Shoot at one of our favorite New Jersey Destination Venues, The Ashford Estate. While the ballroom is grand and the guest house is opulent, the rustic ceremony barn and scenic grounds steel the show. For this shoot we hit all the big trends including ethereal gowns, lush blooms, drapey bouquets, organic details and unexpected props, vintage decor, stunningly styled vignettes and subdued colors with opulent accents.

The star of the show is the grand bench that was created for the head table . It started as an old bed frame that was taken it apart, chopped it up and reassembled with a bench seat and some luxurious pillows the results were more then I could have hoped for! It was paired with an antique refurbished library table that was sanded and infused with gold paint to give it a little sparkle. Old dining chairs were given new life with a distressed paint technique and re-upholstered cushions. The Cake Display is one of my favorite set ups to style! For this look I went with a stack of vintage suitcases piled high for the cakes to sit on top of and framed with an antique gold frame. Some other romantically re-purposed pieces in this shoot were the china cabinet turned martini bar, tattered wallpaper, vintage door backdrop perfect for selfies and the oversized gold frame attached to vintage doors that were the perfect photo-op prop.

The gorgeous wedding centerpiece is loaded with Garden Roses, drapey greens and some of my favorite blooms including ranunculus, hydrangeas and sweet peas. I especially love the mini pears that give it the perfect touch or organic detail. See how it came to life for this styled shoot at Ashford Estate. I love setting a table with an eclectic mix of candlelight. This table-scape features glass jardin jars with votives, jeweled gold and silver votives and mercury glass votives courtesy of Vinterest Props.

From The Bride…I am a graphic designer and design guru in general, so for me, the planning was enjoyable! I knew what I wanted and I made sure I chose vendors who had the same style and taste as I did.

The wedding day was a fairytale. I know that sounds so cliche, but I was actually surprised at how magical and stress free the day went. It was a dream to me. I LOVE flowers, so going into this I knew I wanted to pay extra attention to the decor of the flowers and candles. I wanted it to feel romantic with light pale colors and touches of gold and greenery. I have a “flowy” style and I wanted that to carry through. As for the food, that was left up to Dominic since he is the chef of the family. We wanted to wow our guests with the food, since that is what we love. A giant sushi boat, Wellfleet oysters, mini mushroom bread puddings were among a few bites that guests could enjoy. To top things off, we had two food trucks pull up outside at 11:30 for the after party! No one left hungry to say the least.
