Happy Valentine's Day...come to a Celtic wedding at the farmhouse




Well... not a "real" wedding, but a wedding photoshoot for my very charming, talented, detail-oriented and fun friend-  event planner Sorrell Downing of Events by Sorrell!  
The photoshoot highlighted a long list of talent from makeup artist, hair stylist, florist, baker, calligraphy artist not to mention an amazing photographer, Kate Preftakes of Kate Preftakes Photograpghy, gifted florist Trim Hahn of Posies by Trim,  and of course meticulous planning by Sorrell to bring it all together.  I had the opportunity to work with Sorrell and Kate to style some of the photos, which was so fun.  It was a fabulous day surrounded by creativity!  

Since today is Valentine's I thought it was the perfect day to share these photos from the photoshoot with you!   It is also the time to start thinking about and booking your wedding planner and photographer for your upcoming summer wedding.  Sorrell, Kate and Trim do events all around New England, and I highly recommend them. 
Since the photos I take of the farmhouse are all photos of rooms and design, I thought it would be fun for you to see some of the rooms with people in them for a different perspective.
This post contains a lot of photos since all the photos that Kate took were beautiful and they were all my favorites I had a difficult time narrowing them down.  Except for the large punch bowl and cups, all table pieces (i.e. napkins, glasses, flatware, candles, etc.) are mine.
I know you will enjoy all the photos as much as I do!

  5. These photos are beautiful, Joan! Isn't it fun to see our homes through the eyes, and lenses, of other people. I don't remember seeing the view down your stairs toward the front door before. It is especially wonderful to see the girls at the end. Hugs and skritches to them from Va.

  10. Beautiful. I love the details and simplicity of this "wedding". I find so many weddings today to be over the top - too much in many ways. This display and the pictures are wonderful.

  11. Beautiful shoot, though I really wish the "bride" was in a different top. looked so casual compared to the groom and even the flower girl.
