As Seen In: Style Me Pretty, Gem Themed Party

Being the creative people that we are, we find inspiration everywhere – colors, fabrics, paintings, magazines, you name it. So it should come as no surprise that this entire photo shoot was inspired by a necklace! Owner and stylist Beth Chapman teamed up with Carla Ten Eyck and Jubilee Events to put together this gem themed Bat Mitzvah shoot in Providence last April made complete with a ‘bauble bar’!   And how cute are the models?!  We may be a little biased, since the shoot features Beth’s daughter and her best friends! Scroll below to view the adorable and colorful images.

A  note from Beth: I have a slight obsession with all things plaid! I have wanted to style a shoot with tartan details for some time. When I laid eyes on this adorable long sleeve floral lace dress from Modern Trousseau at October bridal market, I knew that I had the found the perfect gown to feature in a plaid shoot. I loved layering the textures of the floral lace pattern, soft tulle and classic Black Watch Plaid and collaborating with Stacie to incorporate them throughout the shoot.

I worked with a company out of Scotland to create a Black Watch tartan bow belt to pair with a custom Modern Trousseau short tulle skirt. I completed the look with a navy on navy striped shirt from the Gap and created, dare I say, the sweetest bridesmaid look!

My friends at Valentino Tailors made my dreams come true when they offered up a Black Watch tartan tuxedo for our male model to wear! It was plaid perfection!

Event Planner, Stacie Shea and I loved showing how you can take one simple element and carry it throughout all of the details of your wedding- from the invitation, to the flowers, to the fashion!

Here is some commentary from the lovely Stacie Shea weighing in on the concept of this stunning shoot:

The insanely talented Beth Chapman contacted me back in December completely motivated by all the snow that was set in our forecast for the month of January. We set out and decided we wanted to create a shoot inspired by the beauty of the outdoors, the abundant amount of winter snow we were getting and the beautiful coloring of the Scottish Black Watch plaid.

Beth and I thought it was so important to show brides that plaid can be used throughout the winter season and even throughout the year. Many times plaid is reserved for the pre-Christmas and holiday time frame and we wanted brides to see the beauty and femininity in using this plaid paired with beautiful tulle throughout their wedding day.

The tablescape did just that by tying together a large amount of textures, patterns and beauty all in one space. The white sequin tablecloth was draped with a tulle overlay to soften the sequins and give a small amount of shimmer to the table. We used beautiful gold chargers from Juliska tied with Black Watch Scottish tartan and dark forest green silk napkins. The table was adorned in beautiful stems with the inspiration being the anemone. Its dark center was a way to really pull in the dark nature of the plaid into our tablescape and floral design.

The wedding cake we felt needed to reflect the romantic and extremely detailed aspects of the wedding dress. The bottom layer of the cake matched perfectly the floral lace pattern of the bodice of the Modern Trousseau dress. It was finished off with the perfect Black Watch tartan bow.

The Winvian Resort and Spa was the perfect location for this shoot! It was a cold, foggy, snowy day in Connecticut, which only helped to complete the story of this shoot even more perfectly. The Gordon Brown room with its raw and exposed wood beams brought in the rustic elements we were hoping to have and to complete all the elements of the shoot. Its beautifully refurbished wood elements gave the tablescape and styling the exact pops that it needed to stand out and make this shoot so incredibly beautiful!”

As Seen In: Connecticut Bride, Styled 1920′s Shoot

We are absolutely honored have styled a shoot that makes up a gorgeous three page spread featured in the most recent issue of Connecticut Bride magazine! One of the fabulous images also graces the cover of this local read.

In addition, the coffee table book The White Dress in color co-written by owner Beth Chapman is also reviewed on page 12. Scroll on to see the pages and read more about this fantastic shoot! 



We love the style of the 1920′s, which is why we jumped at the chance to participate in a project dreamed up by Dani Fine Photography at The Society Room in Hartford, CT. This shoot featured some true industry greats and we had so much fun working with them all – Tony Palmeri for Green Dahlia  on flowers, A Little Imagination Cakes on sweets and the ultra talented Larissa Lake on hair and makeup. Not to mention the gorgeous paper from Hartford Prints! ,which made our hearts go pitter-patter.

 Our inspiration for fashion was dramatic and moody, to compliment the classic city venue filled with dark woods and rich tones. The Society Room had a past life as a bank, so that grand feel of an era gone by still runs throughout.  We enjoyed using both old and new pieces when styling this shoot.  We incorporated vintage inspired pieces from  Maria Elena and from The Wedding Dresser.  We were also lent a selection of period accessories from The Something Old Collection, which couldn’t have been more perfect to compliment the looks. The piece de resistance was a vintage dress straight from the 1920′s, borrowed from Tova’s Vintage Shop . The gowns used in the shoot were from  Amy Kuschel and Rivini and bridesmaid styles from Donna Morgan, including a forest green velvet style that we just adored. But the show could not have gone on without the suits and tuxes lent to us by our stylish friend, Enzo Valentino,  of Valentino Tailors- the morning suit and ascot could not have been more period appropriate. In addition, we just love the swoon worthy boudoir photos at the end of this spread- provided and styled by Josie of Beneath the Gown. We hope you enjoy the images so much that you run out and scoop up a copy of Connecticut Bride!
