We love styled shoots for so many reasons, and at the very top of that list is the endless inspiration that happens when a group of talented and creative wedding vendors dream big. This Rustic Romantic styled shoot from TWO of our Vendor Guide Members, Cinnamon Wolfe and DeborahAnn Photography, is overflowing with beauty, style and incredible vision.
From Cinnamon: Having two photographers plan and prepare a styled wedding shoot is no easy task! But thanks to an amazing team of vendors, Debbie and I were able to pull it off and everything came together so beautifully!
We wanted to highlight a very romantic and rustic barn wedding in the Spring at the amazingly beautiful Sterlingbrook Farm and Events. This venue is to die for! A gorgeous, rustic barn settled in between fields of soft green grass with rustic fences and grand trees. Sterlingbrook is also an equine center so there are plenty of majestic horses to greet you as you come in and look on as you do your first look or bridal portraits!
We loved that our models were a real life couple and wanted to incorporate their two children as a flower girl and ring bearer. They stole the show! How cute are those suspenders?
We were pleasantly surprised the day of our shoot to have some hot air balloons make an appearance! From the custom calligraphy, perfect naked cake, to the out of this world organic and loose florals...everything about this came together just as envisioned!

It's pretty incredible what can happen when a group of talented wedding vendors come together. We adore this Winter Wedding Inspiration from Cinnamon Wolfe Photography and Michelle Perez Events. Every element is budding with romance and elegance, and the neutral color palette keeps it serene. Scroll down for all of the gorgeous countryside inspiration you can handle!
From Michelle (Planner): This session took place at Sterlingbrook Farms in the heart of New Jersey. A countryside getaway and equine center means that majestic horses will be a likely backdrop for your images. The goal was to exude abounding romance and grace through a subtle color palette with pops of bold colors to bring it all to life. Our models- a real couple - brought it all together with tender moments and whispered secrets.

For the last decade, "wedding season" was roughly defined as summertime. Maybe late-spring and early-fall would be thrown in there, too, but any wedding vendor would tell you summer was their busiest time of year. Lately though, we're seeing a resurgence of winter weddings, and shoots like this one by Cinnamon Wolfe Photography, one of Red Oak's Preferred Vendors are probably why. The winter blooms, the colors, the modern-cool vibe and the perfectly crisp winter day all make this wedding inspiration shoot completely swoon-worthy.
From Cinnamon: The modern charm of Sterlingbrook Farm & Events was the backdrop for this sweet session styled to highlight gorgeous lace details and inspiration for brides looking for an outdoor barn wedding.
The gorgeous florals mixed with the modern arch provide a perfect backdrop for wedding vows and the stunning barn window provides an ideal location for romantic portraits.
Filling the table with silver dollar eucalyptus as a faux runner made a lush juxtaposition to the oversized glass jars used as centerpieces.
