New England Weddings – Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

I’m always excited when a vendor asks to collaborate on a styled shoot, so when my friend Nancy of Makeup by Nancy reached out to ask if I was interested in collaborating on a styled shoot, of course I said yes! It’s always a pleasure to work with some of my friends to create a bohemian inspiration wedding styled shoot that was featured in Seacoast Wedding Magazine.

If you don’t know me {yet} I like to beat to my own drum and do things a wee-bit differently. So, when Nancy approached me to help design this styled shoot, she wanted me to put my stamp on it. I did my research on what this style represented and how I can add my twist to it.

The traditional bohemian theme focuses mostly on neutral, cream and pink color palettes. During my research and diving deeper into it, I found descriptions such as “eclectic mix of hippie, nomad & gypsy lifestyle with an artistic flair”, whimsical, mix and match flowers and dish-ware. Now, we’re talking about what speaks to me. I decided to go with the artistic flair and brought in that pop of color to the natural element.

I went with a purple, white and cranberry color palette. For the decor, I wanted to focus on arrows, wood, vintage and soft, romantic feel. All images are courtesy of the amazingly, talented, fun guys at Black Thumb Studio.

I absolutely fell in love with the purple ‘leafy’ and textured linens from Peterson Party Rentals when I saw them, so when I spoke with my new found friends at Free Range Floral about what I was envisioning for the florals, they fit right in. I told them I wanted a woodsy, colorful and flowy feel…boy, they did not disappoint and captured what I was looking for.

I did the stationery in-house since my one of my assistants, Maureen is super talented with graphic design!

When the florists mentioned they wanted to “try” out a floral wall as a nice background, who am I to say no?!

And it looks so pretty with the hairpiece….and check out Makeup by Nancy’s amazing job on the makeup!

Can’t have a styled shoot without a pretty venue to show off. We had the pleasure of the Ferncroft Country Club allowing us the use of their newly renovated space to capture these details! It was such a gorgeous venue and the grounds were absolutely stunning for pictures!

You can’t have a styled shoot without some yummy dessert. The cupcakes were graciously made by Nicole Locke at Bucciarelli’s Butcher Shop & Deli. Yes, they are more than just a butcher shop!

Lastly, when you think of “hippie”, you instantly think of a VW Bus. So, when Nancy found out that one of her past clients had just restored one, she immediately called Bud at Salem Five to see if we could use it! He graciously said yes….

OH WAIT, there’s one more thing….as with the weddings I am part of, I’m always about it being personalized. Nancy & I both wanted to use our family china to bring in the personal element.

I had a blast working with my vendor friends before the craziness of wedding season began and it’s always a good way to get the creative juices flowing! Allow all of us to be part of your wedding and you won’t be disappointed either!
