Modern Wedding Photo Shoot: Featured in CT Bride!


Today I’m excited to finally share our modern houndstooth and cobalt blue wedding photo shoot, which was featured on the cover of Connecticut Bride Magazine! As I look through the photos, I’m reminded of the amazing energy felt throughout the day of shooting. When you put together a stellar team of vendors, magic happens.


The day began with hair and makeup prep by the fabulous Larissa Lake team, and Amy Champagne was on from sunrise to sunset making sure every last detail was perfect!


Fleurescent created the florals (I’m such a sucker for anemones!) and I complemented her table arrangements with some paper signage goodness, including table number and a custom banner.


Wedding chair signs are some of my favorite things to make. They are a simple way to add a personal touch, and make for a fabulous photo-op during the reception!


Donna from Little Random Details created deliciously pretty sweets, including a full candy bar. Erica from Erica O’Brien Cake Design also provided a gorgeous confection with gold + floral notes.


Amy worked with Party Rental Ltd. and put together the tablescape.


Brooke from Brooke Allison Photo took such incredible photos inside the penthouse and outside around the Yale campus. (It’s also worth mentioning she braved the cold with our bride + groom!)


For the invitation suite I kept a classic layout, but added a pop of modern with the mixed type, bold colors + houndstooth liner. I had these printed on a gloss cardstock then finished with a clear dry toner to give it that extra sheen. Thanks to Whoa Nellie for the amazing calligraphy!


Some fun paper detail shots, including the menu card I created…


Here’s one of our favorite pictures from the day. You can plan as much as you want, but it takes a good eye (and a willingness to sneak into a fenced-in area) to capture moments like this one.

It was an honor to work with such talented vendors on this shoot, and seeing it in print is just gravy.

Be sure to pick up your copy today!
