Happy Monday everyone! Today I have a fabulous inspiration shoot to share with you, sent to us by Jessica’s Country Flowers and photographed by Jamie Collins. Jessica wanted to create a look that was simple, yet romantic, with a little bit of rustic charm. I must say, she pulled the look off flawlessly!

A little bit from Jessica…

 

This photo shoot was created at La Cupola Ristorante & Inn, which is situated in the historic town of Litchfield, Connecticut. The owner (Frank Rosa) is from Italy and loves weddings- he believes that weddings should be an intimate gathering of family and close friends.  Frank loves family style reception tables vs. the typical round tables because it’s an amazing, quaint setting that lets people connect and enjoy each others company.

With my table designs, I wanted to create a look that was simplistic, yet completely romantic.  We used a mix of different vases and added color with gerrondos gerbera daisies.  Pint mayo jars filled with garden roses, millet and gerbera daisies then touches of candles added in the element of simplicity. We added a touch of rustic charm by adding an old board down the center of the table, on top of a gorgeous biscuit color crushed linen.

The other table setting was created with two farmhouse style tables. I added chocolate colored burlap for a simple runner, adding to the overall feel of the table setting. Three chocolate stone urns were overflowing with antique green hydrangea, ‘Miranda’ garden roses, ‘Cool water’ and ‘Faith’ roses.  I used a collection of various vintage drinking cups and dessert cups as vases to bring a little touch of color and more detail to the table setting (I found some wonderful vintage glasses on Etsy and in stores).

Sara Faella creates couture head pieces. (She has a incredible selection on her web site to pick from- anything from birdcage veils to floral and feather clips adorned with Swarovski crystals.) Sara also travels throughout New England styling hair and make-up for clients.  Her pieces paired wonderfully with the gowns from The Plumed Serpent.  The full length gown our model wore was a Romona Keveza organza gown covered with hand formed organza flowers.  All accessories are by Debra Moreland for Paris.

Kelly’s Sweet Rewards created cakes that coordinated with each of our table settings.  She also hand crafted the most delicate cupcakes with sugar flowers. Linen napkins designed by Butterfly & company were a perfect addition to the cake table.

 

This shoot is truly romantic simplicity with a touch of rustic details. And you all KNOW I’m loving that cake with the yellow detailing too. Thank you to Jessica for sharing this great inspiration shoot with us, and thank you to all of the vendors that made it happen!
