Wedding Photoshoots

A Classic Wedding Inspired by Jackie & JFK at The Bee and Thistle Inn and Spa, featured in Gala Weddings Magazine!

In honor of tonight’s soiree at The Bee and Thistle Inn and Spa to celebrate the newest issue of Gala Weddings Magazine, I wanted to share with you all images from the gorgeous photoshoot we collaborated on with our amazing creative team! All of us share a special love for the undeniably beautiful Jackie Kennedy Onassis and have been dying to work together on designing a photoshoot inspired by her classic and effortless style. At Anne Barge‘s market run way show, Beth Chapman and I saw “Jackie” walk down the runway and we instantly knew we had to plan a shoot around this incredible gown that Anne designed, inspired by Jackie’s original dress. It just so happens that our shoot took place on the anniversary of Jackie and John’s magical Newport wedding (not even intended!). We worked with our team to design a classic, yet modernized wedding in shades of hydrangea blue with soft and bright yellows.

Some of my favorite details from this shoot include the customized menus made out of gorgeous satin ribbon with gold foil engraving, the ghost chairs we designed with Datura: A Modern Garden that included inset calligraphy as a place card and boxwood trimming on the chair backs, the classic half wedge of pineapple that guests truly dinned at at Jackie and John’s wedding, the customized blue taffeta skirt and white collared shirt by Coren Moore (Beth’s vision that was designed especially for our shoot), the classic hair and makeup by Dana Bartone, and of course, my own personal Louie Vuitton suitcase as part of the going away look!
