Martha’s Vineyard Styled Shoot

Happy rainy day Monday! It’s the perfect day to sit and reflect back on some of the amazing things we have done over the past few months. We were able to be a part of an unforgettable styled shoot this past summer. We are so proud to say that they have been published in Well Wed, Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard edition! We have been waiting to share these images with you for a while and it is finally time…
We met Julia Bushe, the photographer,  last year through a mutual friend who knew we both shared a tremendous love for Martha’s Vineyard. We met one day for coffee on the Vineyard and an idea was born. We planned a Styled Shoot for the end of that summer and it was a true labor of love. There are few places in the world that intoxicate your soul the way Martha’s Vineyard does. Without a bridge or tunnel to connect to this island, visitors must arrive by ferry or plane. In doing so, you are forced to leave behind the hustle and bustle of life and enter a quiet simplicity surrounded by natural beauty. It is truly a feeling that can’t be described.
The opportunity to merge two things we love the most was a dream come true, weddings and the Vineyard. Our model, Kathryn, luckily agreed to spend the day with us. She was instrumental in the success of the day. We decided on two locations and two different looks. Every town on the island offers a different landscape and different feel than the other. All beautiful and pristine. Chilmark is a popular destination wedding spot and it was so hard to pick one area. We decided to first visit the 300 year-old fishing village of Menemsha, world famous for fresh, off the boat seafood, and breathtaking sunsets. On a busy summer day it was no easy feat to get in and shoot. Beachgoers, fishermen and townspeople crowded the docks as we set up to shoot and the experience was overwhelming. Menemsha is the perfect backdrop for any wedding. It has such a casual elegance to it and Kathryn’s vintage gown from Etsy was the perfect choice. She was simply perfect!
After a quick change, we were off to Aquinnah and the clay cliffs of Gay Head. Aquinnah is on the south side of the island and home to the most beautiful, multi-colored clay cliffs that cascade down into the ocean. It is truly breathtaking. The pictures do the talking for this spot. Kathryn wore a more formal destination gown from Chantilly’s Bridal on Cape Cod. Her gorgeous floral crown and garland was filled with brightly colored ranunculus and stunning beach roses. The final pictures were shot as the sun was setting. It was a magical day all around and we are so excited to share these photos with you.

Late Summer Wedding on the Mystic River

HAZEL & ROBEY – MYSTIC MUSEUM OF ART

We love any wedding that includes a cute pup, and Charlie sure fit the bill! He was adorable AND well-behaved, which is always a plus (especially during church ceremonies!).

Hazel and Robey even had him featured on their escort cards.

Despite a few bumps in the road (guests on crutches, a huge traffic delay, and the cutie below giving himself a haircut a couple days before the wedding), the day was nevertheless filled with lots of smiles and love.

The Mystic Museum of Art is one of our favorite venues, located right on the Mystic River. It doesn’t get more picturesque than this spot, especially at night with this great tree lit up.

 

Congrats, Hazel and Robey! We wish you many years of happiness.

Seaside Connecticut Wedding at Branford House

Diana & Joe at Branford House, Groton, CT

You know when you can just meet two people and you can feel that they are in love? That’s Joe and Diana. From the way they looked at each other…to their vows…to the toasts that were given….the whole day had this crazy love vibe that was just amazing.

The weather was truly magical, and the sunset was one of the best of the summer. Guests played lawn games in the warm summer breeze while listening to Frank Sinatra and other classic favorites (sounds amazing, right?).

With unbeatable views, the sprawling lawn, and the gorgeous mansion, the Branford House is unsurprisingly one of our favorite places to work. But pair the beautiful locale with this sweet couple, super fun guests, and amazing vendors, and it was truly the perfect wedding day.
