We recently had the honor of styling the fashion for Connecticut Bride's
Fall/Winter 2011 cover and editorial spread.Â The shoot took place shortly after the Royal Wedding, which acted as our inspiration. We were thrilled to be able to use the gowns from Modern Trousseau's Fall 2011 collection
Â for this shoot.Â In the spirit of the royal nuptials, we went for a very regal and feminine look with the accessories featuring jewelry from Haute Bride
, gloves by Carolina AmatoÂ
and hats and fascinators by Bijou Van Ness.
The shoot took place over the course of 2 days at 5 historic locations in Hartford, Connecticut.Â We shot at the Society Room
, City Hall, The Old State House, The Mark Twain House
and Elizabeth Park
We collaborated with Connecticut's best and brightest on this shoot. Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events
coordinated all of the locations and worked with Beth Chapman, owner of The White Dress by the shore
on creating theÂ Â inspiration for the shoot.Â Tony PalmeriÂ of Datura: a modern garden
created theÂ bouquets and floral accentsÂ and Dana Bartone
was responsible for the incredible beauty!Â Carla Ten Eyck
captured it all on film and Jim Altieri of Vintage Cinema
, documented the behind-the scenes-on video.Â You can watch the video below!
Be sure to run out and pick up your copy on newsstands and stay tuned to the blog for the stunning shots that were not featured in the spread.
We love what we do and are so thrilled to share it with you!
