Some days words don't do a shoot justice, and today's enchanting fall wedding inspiration from Amber Dawn and La Rue Events is absolutely one of them. The bride, a classic ballet dancer, was the epitome of elegance in her backless Lillie gown and stunning blush heels. From the incredibly gorgeous fall florals to the romantic invitation suite, every detail is more beautiful than the next. Our favorite part though? The bridal portraits at the horse farm. A bride and her favorite animal... there's nothing better. Get ready to fall in love, friends! This styled shoot is full of inspiration!Read More
We fell in love with this shoot the moment we saw the very first photo, and know you will, too. Kyo Morishima and Kristen Rockhill dreamed up the most perfect Man Men-Inspired Styled Shoot that is dripping with inspiration and creative ideas. Everything from the bridal gowns (two of them, and they're both stunning), to the perfectly executed floral arrangements is totally on point, and more beautiful than the next. Pin away... this one is a keeper!
The Nassau Inn is a historic hotel (founded in 1756!) with lots of character right in the center of downtown Princeton. When they approached us about partnering with stylist Kristin Rockhill to do a photoshoot showing off some of their wedding spaces, we were immediately on board. We met with Kristin and Jamie Volkert from the Nassau Inn to brainstorm ideas, and I mentioned that I'd always thought it would be fun to do a "MadMen" style shoot at the Nassau Inn, since it has such a charmingly retro vibe. Much to my delight, Kristin and Jamie loved the idea, and ran with it!As Jamie explained, "Our ultimate goal when planning this photo shoot was to bring to life all of the qualities the Inn has to offer and to show prospective couples that they really can have it all. The tree-adorned back patio adds just enough nature to your day while allowing you to still have the convenience of our elegant ballroom. The MadMen photo shoot brought to life the nostalgia of the property and showcased multiple venue spaces that the Nassau Inn has to offer." Kristin pulled together a wonderful team for the photo shoot. April Nicole Designs created an unusual wooden backdrop wall for the ceremony setting on the Nassau Inn's back patio, and West Elm donated decor and furniture for the outdoor lounge area. The bride's dresses -- which were just stunning -- were from BHLDN. And I adore the bride's perfect Sixties-style bouffant updo by Letitia Kakas. One of the best parts about this photo shoot was the chemistry between the male and female models. They are a couple in real life.... not engaged yet, but we were all nudging them to make it official soon. They sure seem like they are ready for it. ;)
