Nautical Preppy Wedding Photoshoot in Essex, Connecticut for The Connecticut Bride

 

This past fall we had the fun opportunity to co-create and design a fun, summer editorial shoot for The Connecticut Bride Magazine. Having just come off our fashion obsession of nautical glam, we worked with our creative counterparts to design this fun, preppy, and dressed up version of nautical on the Connecticut shoreline! We worked in your traditional seaside color story– blues, reds and yellows– with a bit of sparkle, lots of stripes and a little kate spade. What I’m also excited about is half my summer accessories got incorporated into this gorgeousness! A huge thank you to our talented team who made the day so fun: Carla Ten Eyck, Beth Chapman, Datura: A Modern Garden, Dana Bartone & Company, A Little Imagination Cakes, Coral Pheasant Stationery + Design, and a HUGE thank you to our dear friend Rachel Edwards at Dreamscapes Design Group for not being just lovely and wonderful, but such a gracious hostess for the day!! An additional thank you to Alison Fischer of The Plumed Serpent in Westport for also participating in this shoot and lending her gorgeous gowns!

I just love this first look– colored shoes, colored jewels, those lockets (! which we all immediately purchased on the spot from Aquinnah and all now proudly own, and hope to not wear all at the same time, accidentally), striped puffy sleeved top, sparkly anchor bag…. love it all! The paper suite that Nichole from Coral Pheasant put together was spectacular. Sign. Me. Up. It was so well executed with so many fun little surprises– which I feel like is her signature.
