From Kay English Photography… This sophisticated preppy shoot is the perfect marriage of upscale shabby chic charm, rustic styling and whimsical details!
The colors consisted of a dreamy mix of pinks and peaches with pops of muted turquoise and blues. The wood tones and burlap linens brought in our signature rustic charm.
The white wash beer garden and vintage door table were custom made by Vinterest Props and decor. Vintage velvet chairs, a dry sink, metal gazebo and reclaimed wood benches and seating added character and shabby chic style to the shoot.
The tables featured an eclectic mix of flowers, colored glass bottles, glass and wood candlesticks and lush blooms. The table is also styled with vintage plates, stacked books and candles in every shape and size.
The Baby’s Breath runner and tall floral arrangement pack a powerful punch of wow and have a cloud like ethereal quality. The lush garden roses, ranunculus and draping greens and hanging amaranthus add a pop of color and a touch of whimsy.
Soft Yet Dramatic, the girls looked glam and effortless and the poofs of Baby’s Breath tucked into their hair added an ethereal quality.

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!

From Rebecca Yale Photography… Astrid and Jeff had a lovely summertime wedding at the bride’s alma mater, Princeton University. The ceremony took place at the airy Miller Chapel followed by a perfectly sunset timed cocktail hour in the gardens of the Prospect House and an evening of dinner and dancing inside the historic mansion. The day was a lovely mix of old and new. The bride juxtaposed a very modern off white jeweled gown with a stunning antique heirloom pearl necklace from the groom’s grandmother. The bridesmaids were a perfect pop of color for summer wearing different styles of bright fuchsia gowns and carrying bright pink and green blooms. The groomsmen complimented them perfectly in grey suits and rose colored ties.
The couple carried over the pops of pink and airy feeling into their reception where the beautiful room was full of touches of white and gold and hot pink blooms as the centerpieces. Many of the guests and family members were also Princeton alums, and in one of my favorite moments of the day, during cocktail in the gardens the Princeton alums got together for a photo and broke into song, serenading the party. The bride later serenaded the party again with her fellow Tigerlillies, her Princeton acapella group.
