Now this post (which is ever so dear and near to my heart) has been a very long time coming. This gorgeous styled couples shoot was shot in May, and I have been so super slack, you know being pregnant and all and having quite a rough time of it, that blogging this beauty has taken months!! But it’s here now and I am so excited to finally share a glimpse of what was such a beautiful day for the both of us… pre-pregnancy of course!
It all began when a few of us ‘creatives’ connected through Instagram, and collaborated on this anniversary picnic themed photoshoot idea, that took on it’s own kind of beautiful on the day – we decided to name this shoot “Cheers to 3 Years”! It blew me away at how amazing everyone involved was, how helpful, contributive, and kind… we have made some exceptional friends in show-biz that we hope to collaborate again with in the not-to-distant future.
The idea stemmed from a blog shoot I had planned to do while we were visiting Boston for the first time. I saw this Marchesa Notte dress and needed a reason to wear it. Once we connected with the dream-team, we incorporated everyone’s ideas to showcase their work and talent… an anniversary shoot.
We had a beautiful picnic set-up, complete with catered baked goods by Emily Jones – including the most delicious naked layer cake (white chocolate mud with strawberry frosting), lots of sweet treats, lemon tarts, mini naked cupcakes, and to top it off we brought along some Rosé to toast with, which was a nice touch.
Ghislaine from Esme Isolde set up and themed the day with blankets, cute props and all the finishing touches that really made the shoot pop! Alongside her, Poppies Floral Design & Styling, created a beautiful peony bouquet that filled the bicycle basket, and also topped our lovely celebratory cake.
Our day began in our hotel room at The Boxer Hotel in Boston, where I was primped by the wonderful Tiffany Cantin who did my hair and make-up. We went for a bold red lip look and tied my hair with a pink ribbon. I wore a beautiful Marchesa Notte dress kindly donated by BHLDN, along with some stunning quartz drop earrings and matching bracelet to complete the feminine playful look we hoped to achieve!
We even had a calligrapher (who is super talented and I instantly fell in love with her work), Becca Joas, who made cute little photo framed artwork saying “Cheers to 3 Years” and who also wrote out the love notes seen in the images. We also used a pretty little pink velvet ring box to display my engagement and wedding rings for the shoot, by Weft & Whimsy.
And lastly, but certainly not least, we teamed up with an amazing photography team, KAngell Photography and Jessica Herndon who captured all the fleeting moments of the styled shoot. Rohan and I were nothing short of blessed to work with each and every person involved. The vision we had was exceeded and we were able to get some beautiful ‘family’ photos out of the session. This shoot really captured our personalities and even showcased our pups which are a huge part of who we are…
Hope you enjoy all the prettiness. We certainly cannot get enough!
A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE WONDERFUL SUPPLIERS
