It may feel like these frigid temperatures are never going to leave, but this Boho Chic Styled Shoot at Brookdale Park Rose Garden in Montclair, New Jersey reminds us that spring is just around the corner. Jennifer Larsen and Stephanie Williamson dreamed up a romantic outdoor styled shoot, and we love all of the sweet, intimate moments and perfectly chic details. From the letterpress invitation suite with blind debossing and modern calligraphy, to the rustic decor and dream catchers, this shoot is all the best parts of spring rolled into one.
From Stephanie Williamson: There's something so special and romantic about the sweetheart table at a wedding. It offers quick moments to look at your new spouse and take in the day together, it allows for whispers in the ear with a million I Love You's, it's side glances and smiles among the craziness of the day that you can hold onto forever. For this inspiration shoot, we wanted to create a scene that captured all of those intimate moments. Instead of creating a wedding tablescape that serves as inspiration for your guests, we wanted to dream up a cozy sweetheart table that brides & grooms can use as inspiration for them - it is their day after all!
The spring and summer months are no strangers to outdoor weddings so we really wanted to take advantage of the beauty mother nature brings us in these months. When searching for a location and having the airy, boho chic style we wanted to capture in the back of our minds, one location stuck out to us. The Rose Garden and Brookdale Park in Montclair, NJ was the perfect spot! It is set on top of a rolling hill within the sprawling park and offers the most beautiful backdrop for any special occasion - not to mention, the smell of roses drifting through the air is indescribable!
We found an evergreen tree that provided the perfect backdrop for our sweetheart table. From there, we utilized all parts of it to make our vision come to life. We hung dream catchers, lanterns and flower chandeliers from the branches intentionally creating a whimsical setting. From there, Tracey of Tracey Reynolds Floral Design created a gorgeous wreath with greenery and antlers that hung behind our the table. We then layered a mixture of textures and patterns to give the table a homey feeling.
Small details like the Bride & Groom feather place cards, acrylic sign with a Tom Petty quote in calligraphy and the fig-topped mini naked cakes pulled the entire scene together!
