This week we’re excited to share a look back at a woodland-inspired photo shoot we did for WellWed Magazine. We had the pleasure of working at the Westmoor Farm estate nestled away just out of town – a fun and different spot for all of us to work at!
We adore Jen Shepherd’s inventory over at Placesetters, Inc. so we were sort of giddy to see what textures she’d be layering for this shoot. She’s always layering the unexpected and her pairing of pintucked linens with twig chargers and assorted glass for this shoot were nothing less than unique.
If you’ve never been to Heidi’s shop, Parchment, downtown on Washington Street, make a point to visit her this summer! Her quaint shop is on the way out of town and has some of the best paper products a girl could ever want. Parchment also offers wedding invitations and everyday stationery, she also happens to have some of the loveliest handwriting on Nantucket! We couldn’t believe that our crazy idea of calligraphy on mushrooms actually worked!
Can you believe all the detail of the stationery for this shoot? Sara O’Brien of Griffin-vites is one talented artist. While planning for the shoot we expressed that it was woodland-inspired and we’d be using fiddleheads and ferns – and look what she designed! Watercolor stationery is such a great alternative to letterpress or traditional style wedding invitations or stationery, every time we see her work we’re blown away.
Speaking of being blown away – any cake by Jodi’s Cakes will send your taste buds into a frenzy of excitement! She crafted an ever-so-delicious chocolate and salted caramel cake for this shoot (it was our reward at the end of the day,) which we couldn’t get enough of.
Brea McDonald captured all of the details of the day and as well as these fun behind-the-scenes shots of our shoot for WellWed. We love her style of photography and always enjoy working with such talent.
We designed two bouquets for this shoot – we couldn’t choose! There was a fun floral bouquet with amazing ribbons and variegated blooms and then there was the veggie bouquet! Dawn was so inspired by the organic elements of our woodland-inspired shoot that she crafted a bouquet using kale, onion, mushrooms and cabbage. You won’t believe your eyes when you see it!
It’s funny how when you work with amazing, talented women you admire work doesn’t seem like work at all!
