This styled shoot features a married couple madly in love at the unique venue The Meadows tucked away like the Secret Garden in Mystic, Connecticut. All of the organization for the shoot, including working with 14 of the leading wedding professionals in the area, was completed by me and centered around the theme of my wedding packages: “Your Love is My Lighthouse.” Styling for the shoot, including design of the invitation suite and DIY fabric accents were created by myself and a local designer.
Everything about this couple’s wedding day is focused around the belief that love doesn’t have to be extraordinary, it just has to be enduring, simple and true. In a place woven with history of sea merchants and sailors tales, a modern day coastal wedding means embracing the history of the past with nautical ropes, handcrafted rose gold jewelry, and starfish on your wedding cake. Where rainy days don’t exclude you from wedding portraits on the beach, and embracing nautical doesn’t mean your dress can’t have countless layers of tulle.
