The Theme & Photo Shoot Elements
When asked to participate in styled photo shoots, like the one we contributed to recently at Emerald Hill, we are happy to say to "yes to the dresses" - and suits - needed for whatever theme or goal. For this latest photo shoot at Chapman Farmstead, we provided the bride's dress and groom's attire, in appreciation of the vision. Where the Emerald Hill shoot was boho chic and youthful, the Chapman Farmstead shoot evokes memories and images of weddings with an anachronistic feel, sort of out of another time, ... but with modern elements like a photo booth bus!
The antique look and feel of this shoot is both elegant and familiar and the designer did a great job setting the stage and tone for the day. The signs were made by Blossom Barn Event Decor, the overall decor is from Country Sheek Wedding Rentals and the party favors of candles are by Emily's Creations. It's all cohesive and each item compliments the others.
Bridal Traditions provided the bride and groom's clothing and choosing more traditional, classic and formal items was a natural for a theme that included antique dishes, a farm sink for well-wishes, and plenty of lace touches. Our model bride's gown also had long lace sleeves, an open, but not revealing neckline, and plenty of fabric in the skirt. When she walked, there was a trail of satin and chiffon following her. A simple hair piece that resembles a natural garland finished the look.
Because this shoot had a wistful, bygone era feel, a tux for the groom was out of the question. His navy 3 piece suit, taupe tie and crisp white shirt were perfect.
