Let’s face it- we’re obsessed with Mad Men! We love to fawn over Don Draper and his suave demeanor. Or maybe you’re more of a Sterling fan. Either way, we can’t help but desire to be any of its bevy of characters for a day. At least, I know I would love to rummage through their closet and emerge as Christina Hendricks. We felt The Study at Yale in New Haven was the most befitting scene for this, with it’s modern mid-century feel and in the heart of the city. Thankfully we had the fun, creative, energetic group from Raw Photo Design on hand to capture all the glamour!
When it came down to the styling, Beth Chapman from The White Dress by the Shore couldn’t have brought in anything more captivating! She has always been enthralled with the lady-like fashion of the 1960s. Gloves, full skirts, pearls, bouffant hair styles- the whole thing! She just adores it! Couple this with the work of Jennie Fresa Makeup and Skin Care and the W Hair Salon of Madison and we were ready to dine on a three martini lunch. We had Tony Palmieri from Datura, A Modern Garden on hand to push the envelope with his floral decor. Be sure to check out the second table we designed with the glass centerpiece. I absolutely ADORED the look this created- so simple, but so gorgeous! The icing on the cakes were the deco art inspired treats from A Little Imagination Cakes– delicious!
Thank you to all who were a part of this this shoot and to Wedding Chicks for featuring this on their site this week!
