I look back at this shoot we did around 2015 and still love it. It feels timeless. My good friends at Hutch were getting ready to open their flagship store. Walking through their modest first store, inspiration struck me and I was moved to incorporate their style into a wedding day vision. The majority of the furnishings in this shoot were all finds Nick and Brandon had collected. I was like a kid in a candy store when I had the opportunity to go through their store and pick anything I wanted.
There is a certain organic feel to the pieces we chose. I wanted to bring these mid-century modern pieces into the outdoors (as I so often do when I design). Imagine having a small, intimate reception at the family farm and incorporating mid-century pieces to make the outside feel like “home.” The invitations provided by InkBlot Paper were actually printed on thin layers of wood. Helping the guests to literally feel the textures of nature the minute they opened the envelope. The wood was then brought into the tablescape as place cards that rested on a shot glass of whisky.
Events Etcetera really did a great job with the vision for the flowers. We wanted them there but not to the point they distracted from the furniture or the couple. I think they added a little sense of whimsy to the shoot.
This shoot was a truly magical day for all of us involved. I am so thankful for my partners that were willing to spend the day in a field with me. It was perfect!
