Stillwater Farm Wedding {Vintage Winter Wedding}

We are THRILLED to show you this post!  We found inspiration for this shoot in Carly's Camilla Spode china {inherited from her grandmother}, red dogwood branches in the snow and Amy, Hannah and Nina--these three BEAUTIFUL girls!  {Oh...and Cian! Sorry, Cian!}.   Carly and I called on some of our favorite vendors to join us and this fun, vintage, winter shoot was born.

Ashley, from Simply Elegant Bridal Consulting connected us with Seven Oaks Farm in Stillwater, Minnesota and we instantly fell in love.  Pulling onto Seven Oaks Farm is like pulling into Bing Crosby’s movie, Holiday Inn.  It’s picturesque and quaint and the perfect place for a wedding...and Carolyn and Herb, the owners, couldn't be kinder or more accommodating.  The farm has beautiful, white-washed out-buildings—one of which is Wisconsin-style barn with a huge hay loft {and the site of our shoot}.

We set our scene with lots of lovely goods from On-Solid Ground Vintage Rentals, Lime Canary Vintage Rentals, and Festivities.   The Simply Elegant Bridal Consulting team and Sarah, from On-Solid Ground, joined us to pull everything together on-site.  It was such a blast to collaborate with these gals! 
Local artists, Rachel and Allison Pegoraro created a one-of –a-kind thumbprint guest book. Allison Pegoraro lent a taxidermy faun, antlers and faun skins to bring in a bit of the quirk we’re known for. And, we can't say enough about Rosann Konieczny Calligraphy! Her work totally elevated the invitations Carly made just for the shoot.

And, we were thrilled to have Chowgirls Killer Catering put out a beautiful and super tasty spread, along with the incredible custom sweets tables from Sweets Bakeshop.

To dress our models, we borrowed estate furs and vintage jewelry from Brides of France and dressed the bride in re-imagined couture gowns made especially for the occasion by JenMar Creations.  Christina, owner of Something Borrowed, came out with her entire inventory of veils and headpieces.  Dani and Angie from Salon Etica killed it with their beautiful hairstyles and I can't get enough of the coral lips and cheeks {Make-up by Lydia at Salon Rox}.

We hope you are in love with it as much as we are!  Thank you to all the participating vendors!  We are your biggest fans!  {ENJOY!}
