Styled Shoot

A Styled Shoot with Pat Robinson at Terrain at Styers

This shoot goes down in the books for us. As we were planning and designing for this shoot, we just let our vision guide it. It wasn’t guided by particular dictates, merely our dream of what could be. Working with a team of crazy-talented, super collaborative vendors resulted in visual magic — and a shoot worthy of being published on Green Wedding Shoes!

Pat Robinson slayed the photography with his masterful way of capturing the natural light. He perfectly captured the details and the entire mood of the day.

Jess and Paige from We Are Wildflowers jumped right in and crafted an amazing greenery backdrop on site. They had the killer idea to make sure the backdrop was mobile so it could be used as both the ceremony backdrop as well as the sweetheart cake table backdrop. This is the perfect example of choosing a wow-factor to splurge on and then getting creative about how to maximize the impact — we totally geek out over that kind of thinking. We love getting working with new vendors during shoots because it gives us great insight into their work ethic, style, and personality, which they had in spades!

Meg of Nutmeg Design ran with our love of patterns. For inspiration, we gave her a patterned fabric swatch that we later made napkins out of for the shoot. She hand painted the same pattern onto a tier of the cake, then adorned the cake with her amazing sugar flowers (which tied in elements from the pattern in 3D form).

Looking over these pictures brings us such joy and gets us excited for the creative possibilities that lie ahead!

Styled Shoot :: Philadelphia Love Story

We couldn't be happier with last Friday's Supreme Court ruling that Love Wins! In the spirit of celebrating gay marriage, it's time we share this Philadelphia styled shoot where we got to work with the talented Tara Beth Photography.

Tara captured the amazing moments between models Sara & Tina throughout the day. She is truly a master at capturing chemistry, don't you think? Lovely Bride Philly provided the amazing Carol Hannah dress and beaded cape.

Marianna Coppola and Modern Relics assisted in creating the simply elegant tablescape, using Prime Stache’s great wooden tables and chairs. Flying Monkey Bakery made the absolutely delicious {and gorgeous!} dessert bar. That cake….those colors! Love!

Kate Farley worked her magic on the stunning backdrop scene on the restaurant’s existing chalk board.

This talented team came together to create something fun and inspirational for couples planning a winter wedding! Check out Tree of Life Film’s behind-the-scenes video to see how everything came together.

Styled Shoot :: Romantic Ballet Wedding Inspiration

Last summer I worked with Steph and Robin from Bubblerock {from New Zealand but were in Brooklyn visiting} to orchestrate this bridal ballet inspired photo shoot. Steph and I had this idea to showcase the beauty of female movement through ballet.

Rebecca Schoneveld, located in Brooklyn, provided us with several dresses from her gorgeous collections to outfit our ballerina bride models. Coincidentally, Rebecca used to do ballet, so it was a pretty perfect connection! All Rebecca’s dresses are so fluid — they added such a beautiful sense of movement to our shoot.
