When Kori from Colly Flowers dreamed up a free-spirited sophisticate inspirational shoot, she not only pulled together some of NJ's most talented wedding professionals, but also found the perfect backdrop right down the road. Set in a historic mansion in Morristown, New Jersey, Jockey Hollow Bar + Kitchen in is both unique and classic, and quite possibly one of the dreamiest wedding venues in the area. With Noel Perrone behind the lens, the entire day came to life, and well, it's everything you could imagine it would be, and more. Organic and unique, sophisticated and airy, and full of inspiration for brides and grooms craving something a little different for their wedding day. Sit back friends, this styled shoot is going to be a favorite for a very, very long time.
From Kori: Last winter, I was given a tremendous opportunity to create an editorial shoot at a restaurant here in Morristown called Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen. Jockey Hollow is housed in a stunning marble-laden historic mansion. its incredibly inventive cuisine and cocktail program along with its beautiful and unique atmosphere, makes the restaurant a most desirable location for a wedding.
Jockey Hollow was receiving a large volume of inquiries for weddings. the problem they were facing was that these inquiring couples were having a difficult time envisioning their day in this unconventional space. This is where i stepped in and created the free-spirited sophisticate.
When doing editorial work, i find it most helpful to create the personalities of the 'people' we are designed for. I put together a meticulous mood board outlining the 'couple' who would be getting married during this shoot along with the design concept so that the participating vendors and myself could collaboratively and cohesively execute the free-spirited sophisticate.
