Rhode Island American Pie Wedding Inspiration at Mount Hope Farm
May 23, 2011
New England

There was squealing here at the Little Black Book Blog when we first laid our eyes on this Rhode Island wedding inspiration. Squealing and clapping. And maybe a little jumping. Let me explain - this shoot features work from a laundry list of our talented Little Black Book vendors. The American Pie theme, designed by the amazing team at Details with Love, featured fantastic florals from Studio 539 Flowers, the sweetest little flower girls EVER, a venue to die for, and so, SO much more. And it was all flawlessly documented by Adeline and Grace Photography. We couldn't do it justice here, so peruse, squeal, jump, and clap, then continue the party in the gallery for more!

From Details with Love ... Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places. For me the shoot idea began with iconic son "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" by Don Mclean. The song's  wistful longing for a the days of a simpler Americana was brought to life by the creative minds behind this shoot. Using just a few simple lyrics and the backdrop of Rhode Island's Mount Hope Farm we captured the nostalgia of this song in a wedding shoot we call, "American Pie".

We love it when a couple comes to us with one lovely, little detail they envision their special day planned around and with that one thing we style their signature wedding to reflect their unique personality and love story. We ran with all the wonderful Americana details of vintage charm, in a fun color palette of poppy red and robins egg blue, complete with a cute little piggy farm animal, who debuted on more than the invites!

The handcrafted driftwood farm table was accented in fresh cotton linen in bold floral pattern, and poppy red and white stripes. Vintage bronzed and crystal chandeliers hung from the trees to add an element of elegance. Mason jars filled with clusters of seasonal flowers and bringing back the pink carnations tied in vintage lace.

For the "good ol boys," we provided a whisky bar, complete with hand rolled cigars with custom labels (there’s that cute little piggy again!) A dessert table featured locally made fresh baked apple pies (instead of a traditional wedding cake). On a warm end of summer evening at dusk, at a charming local farm, our unique modern twist on a classic Americana style added tons of character and personality!
