Croquet & Bow Ties: A Preppy New England Inspired Wedding Photoshoot at the Ocean House, Watch Hill Rhode Island

I’m so excited to share with you a fun and colorful photoshoot we did at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Carla Ten Eyck and I hosted a 3 day workshop at the Ocean House before it was open to the public. We had the wonderful opportunity to teach photographers and planners the ins and outs of working as a creative team to produce an editorial photoshoot. Our preppy, new england inspired shoot below was the work that I collaborated on with our amazingly talented vendors who contributed so generously to our workshop and shoot!

We were inspired by the classic, preppy and fun look of bow ties, seersucker and bright colors. Some highlights from this shoot are all the incredible corals and blue colors that Tony magnificently worked into the tablescape arrangements and bouquets. Seriously… are you kidding? The irises? Amazing! And the incredible paper that Nichole from Coral Pheasant created– folded menu cards with covers, customized favor / place card boxes with unique paper flowers on top, mini bow ties that decorated our champagne glasses… need I go on?!

We also scored an incredible pink vintage bike thanks to our friend Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the shore, who styled our models for the shoot from head to two. We LOVE this lace Modern Trousseau gown!

I just have to say, one more time, how grateful we are to the amazing and talented vendors who contributed so generously to our shoot. We love the way it turned out and are so excited to share! Thanks to Style Me Pretty for the lovely feature… and to see more images… head over to our gallery.. and also see Coral Pheasant’s blog post on the shoot.
