Love these people!!
Last summer Megan, from Blooming Occasions, and I decided we wanted to create a styled shoot but were not sure where to start. We met at her house one day and after we stopped chatting about life and all kinds of fun things we got to business planning what eventually turned into our Old World European Styled Shoot! We wanted to create something that was timeless and elegant that truly represented the kind of work that inspires us.
The team that was assembled for this shoot was nothing short of perfection and we hope you love these photos as much as we do!
We started our day at the GORGEOUS Mercersburg Inn, it's stately features and grandeur make it the perfect location for small weddings! If you are having a large wedding it is also perfect for your get ready location and first look before heading away to your ceremony and reception!
Stacey Lynn Photography was our photographer for the day and as always blew us away with her attention to detail and beautiful captures! She creates timeless photos that you will be proud to share with your grandchildren someday and does it with the most beautiful heart you could imagine! She's a joy to be around on your wedding day and will keep you calm and comfortable all day long!
Megan with Blooming Occasions had us in awe with her stunning floral designs! She not only helped plan the shoot but also provided all the florals you will see throughout this entire gallery! She is also a joy to work with and will help bring you vision to life!
Our invitation suite was provided by Cork and Chambers and was the perfect addition to the shoot! Emily and Virginia read my mind and then some when they designed this gorgeous set and I seriously cried when I opened the package! When I first reached out to them all I told them was the color scheme, the theme and the town. The rest was all them, that is how insanely talented they truly are!
The rings were all provided by Belle Jewelers in Chambersburg and once again perfectly fit the vision that Megan and I had!
Our ceremony location was the front of the Mercersburg Inn, the elegant columns provided the perfect spot for their faux "I do's."
Vero Leigh was our make up artist for the shoot and after explaining the look and feel we were going for we set her free to work her magic! She highlighted Casey's natural beauty so perfectly and brought the look together!
The stunning dress we used for this shoot was provided by Potomac Bridals in Hagerstown, MD! Casey and I had so much fun going dress shopping and picking out the perfect one! I wanted to make sure she was comfortable in whatever she wore and I left her have the final say between the final two dresses. I think she picked the perfect one!
The tux was also from Potomac Bridals and was by Michael Kors. The bow tie was the perfect choice to carry out our high end feel!
The veil was actually mine from my own wedding and was purchased from Blanca Veils! They provide stunning veils at a fraction of the cost of your typical veils!
Our family table was non other than Nanny Faye herself! She was the perfect compliment to our theme and made a grand statement!
Gold flatware was provided by Country Creek Farmhouse Tables and was a perfect match!
Country Creek Farmhouse tables provided a stunning honey washed farmhouse table and their gorgeous cross back chairs for the guest table. They also provided the gold flatware!
After dinner we headed over to the world renowned Mercersburg Academy for a portrait session and some cake!
Our cake was provided by Kyrsten's Sweet Designs and was the most stunningly simplistic cake you could ever imagine! It featured a beautiful marble base and crisp white top tiers.
We used our little Elsie table as a home for this sweet masterpiece and one of our marble and wood cake plates!
