It’s always an honor when one of the wedding magazines asks you to do a Fashion Editorial Shoot for them, and even better when you get a model like Ruthie.   Danielle Raciti, editor of Southern New England Wedding Magazine and assistant editor, Caroline Goddard had a vision inspired by the historic setting of a real historic New England Mill.  This was an amazing team of vendors to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the results:

The venue  for starters: Slater Mill in Pawtucket, RI. It’s actually available for weddings now and for the right bride who loves history, art and/or  sociology, it would be an amazing choice.  I love shooting in museums. They add so much patina and authenticity to a shoot.The fashions and accessories came from Aneria Bird Bride and Maison DNA and the jewelry came from Place Jewelers.

I love the florals that  The Little Flower Cottage did. They are truly a hidden talent and an up and comer in the industry. Of course the fabulous tablescape by LOLO Event Design was over the top wonderful as all LOLO tables are! Lo McShay is a jewel and always delivers something new and exciting. Check out the echinacea, sea holly, larkspur, garden roses and Queen Anne’s Lace that looked freshly plucked from a field.

I also positively swooned over the letterpress products by Spoon+Sailor Letterpress. Just perfect and hit the right tone for the shoot. Go visit her site and drool. It’s amazing for those obsessed with letterpress (the way I am!).

The makeup and hair people worked tirelessly to change up the hair and makeup on our model throughout the day. Great job Sara Faella Beauty!

Thanks also to the women with  vision, editor Danielle Raciti  and assistant editor, Caroline Goddard, who really pulled off a unique shoot.
