One of my favorite things about styled shoots is the freedom that they bring. While most of the year, weddings are our primary focus, it's nice from time to time to be a bit unfettered. And what better time than the height of any season—especially fall—when you have such fabulous colors at hand.
The shoot was a collaboration with Amber Vickery Photography and Annabelle Mode, who pulled together all of the details and styled the day. We were able to take the family farmhouse feel of the historic 1890 Grove House and imagine an intimate affair with foraged greens forming an organic focal point above a crackling fireplace.
Foraged greens also provided the base for the colorful bouquets with the addition of deep burgundy peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and red festival bush blooms.
Fall greenery was also front and center for the boutonnieres of green hellebores, wild clematis pods, nandina berries and sumac.
The coziness of the farmhouse carried over to the table settings with heirloom china and crystal, colorful florals, seasonal fruit and plenty of candlelight.
A big thank you goes to these guys, Jake and Rebekah, as you'd never know it, but they braved frigid temperatures to get these fabulous shots.
And some final details showcasing the beautiful rings by Chämpe Jennings and a little vintage treasure.
Also, an added bonus to the day is having the images featured on Ruffled blog—check it out for the full story and gallery of images.
