Feature Friday: Lauren & Mike’s Classic, Casual Farm Wedding

We adored dressing Lauren, and are so thrilled to feature the images from her classic, casual farm wedding{captured by Trisha Keeler Photo}.

Lauren & Mike were high school sweethearts and grew up in Madison, CT, so it was fitting that their wedding take place there. Every single detail-  from their beautiful Madison beach portraits to the intimate ceremony and reception at Barberry Hill Farm –  fell perfectly into place.

Lauren has an effortless sense of style and it was reflected in her wedding day style as well! When shopping for her gown she told us that she was looking for something classic (and a touch preppy), but comfortable.  Lauren is a personal trainer and wears yoga pants all day…so comfort was key.  We worked with designer, Kate McDonald to customize the perfect simple gown that had just enough detail. The result was perfect…see below for yourself!

Pretty Post: Caitlin & John’s Preppy Castle Hill Newport Wedding

When it comes to a New England wedding, The Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI is simply one of our favorite venues, and Caitlin and John’s nautical nuptials were just as stunning as their backdrop. We can’t get enough of all of the preppy details!  It was such a pleasure getting to work with Caitlin on this custom gown from Kate McDonald, it combined her own personal sporty style with a touch of classic elegance, a perfect fit for a coastal wedding! Scroll down to enjoy all of Caitlin and John’s photos shot by the talented Meghan Sepe….. And you won’t want to miss the most precious kiddos!

Romantic Mount Hope Farm Styled Wedding Shoot As Seen On Style Me Pretty

We were thrilled to collaborate on this romantic styled wedding shoot at the beautiful Mount Hope Farm and even more thrilled as it was just featured on Style Me Pretty!

The inspiration for the shoot was Spring with romantic touches, so I immediately thought of The Milay gown by Kate McDonald. The blue watercolor floral was the perfect compliment to the rustic elegance of the shoot and I loved how the pop of color from Yumiko’s florals played off of it.  I have a current obsession with Sara Gabriel’s ombre veil and it brought a perfect extra pop of blue to the shoot.  

Every detail of this collaboration was perfectly thought out and lovely. I can’t wait for Style me Pretty’s brides to be inspired by it!
