To all our engaged ladies out there, I beg you to take note of this Sweet Caroline stunner. Dip-dyed in the most delicious of colors, it takes the idea of a non-white wedding dress to a whole new level; unique and statement-making without being in-your-face-shocking. But it’s just one piece of this rustic puzzle captured by Jessica Cooper and Simply Shire, with Janelle on Location’s beauty beaming. More this way!
From Jessica Cooper Photography… When Caroline and I originally met to begin brainstorming for a styled shoot, The Inn at Fernbrook Farms came to mind, and once we knew we could shoot there we really wanted to tell the story of a daydreamer, a farm girl who walks barefoot along the grounds of her farm and is in touch with nature and animals. We chose a color palette of raspberry and light pinks and were inspired by warm weather and summer fruits.
The naked cake by The Cake Box By Neelma, complemented with fresh berries, really worked with the rustic backdrop. The invitations by Darling+Pearl in letterpress and pink hues added perfectly to the mix, and her beautiful wooden beer menus complemented the tablescape. Forget-Me-Not Vintage Rentals & Event Styling, styled four different locations for us, one being the new ceremony wall built on the foundation of the original home at the Inn. Using a mantel, birdcage, and wooden chairs along with Pink Dahlia Vintage’s stunning floral arrangements that were organic, natural and really added an element of elegance to the ceremony space, they were able to transform the space with their beautiful use of color and accessories. Janelle on Location created a few different elegant hairstyles to complement each scene and kept the make up natural and fresh to show the bride’s natural beauty. The stunning custom designed gown by Sweet Caroline was hand dyed a raspberry color to play up the whimsy of the look, with veil and headpieces provided by Sara Gabriel and accessories by Helena Noelle to complete the gown. Shire of Simply Shire Videography completed our shoot with an amazing behind the scenes look at all of the vendors involved. We all hope you feel inspired and enjoy as we really loved creating it!
