In May, we provided a few pieces for a styled shoot at the gorgeous Woolverton Inn in Stockton New Jersey. Our Eleanor Couch, Caroline Side Table, Penelope Arm Chair, European Farmhouse Table and an assortment of chairs all took the trip. The Inn was literally magical. The place was covered in intoxicating lilac bushes and jaunty sheep. The day was drizzly and overcast, changing hourly as the clouds rolled on. It felt like a day spent at an English countryside inn.
Melissa from M2 Photography applied her boundless energy and incredible talent to the 8 hour shoot.
Lauren and Liz from Belovely created amazing florals including a Belovely favorite flower, the exotic king protea. They are also responsible for all the styling and the delightful floral crowns. Check out their website for classes teaching the fine and fun art of floral crowns. They are located just outside of Philadelphia, PA.
They set the table with dishes from Anthropologie and a delectable assortment of grapefruit and blackberries.
The ladies also created a one of a kind backdrop for photos, with hand-painted flowers.
This shoot was designed to promote a gorgeously practical collection of bridesmaid's dresses created by Durga-Kali. Believe it or not all of the dresses in these photos are reversible! One side comes in a dizzying array of colors and styles, the other side shines in black satin. They wear effortlessly and you get two dresses for the price of one. What an ingenious idea by Durga Sundaram-McCurdy, the founder and creator of these lovely dresses.
Gina Kay Osborne, owner of True Beauty Marks worked her magic with hair and make-up. Every model was given a unique look and all 6 of the ladies looked remarkably fresh hours later as the sun set and the photo shoot came to a close.
A note about the models. They were absolutely fearless. Notice that they are barefoot the entire shoot. Abby and I kept trying to protect them by pointing out poison ivy and wild rose bushes creeping along the ground. But, they paid no heed and yet no one left bleeding or itching to my knowledge. Hats off to you ladies!
Until next time my lovelies!
