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!

So beautiful! Thank you for sharing your home in a different way. It made me think - I would love to see a picture of Dan or you relaxing or cooking or just any daily activity in your home. With the girls obviously!

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.

Really beautiful! I love the picture of him leaning against the table outside of the barn room. So much texture and the layers - divine. Bet that was a blast!

I love all these beautiful photos of your home seen through a different lens. The "bride and groom" make a lovely couple and the flower girl is absolutely ADORABLE!!! Lexi

BJM said...

Stunning pictures with the perfect details of your special house. Your house with the decor that is to "die for"....makes this photo shoot a 10+.

Beautiful bride...adorable little girl...and the handsome guy in the kilt!! Bridal perfection.

Jeannine said...

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.

KristinJessup said...

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.

Jane Dolan said...

Gorgeous home and many talented vendors! So lovely to see these photos again :)

Wow, what beautiful photos! Your house looks idyllic, as always, Joan. All the photos are gorgeous, but guess which ones I like the best (hint: they're of the four-legged guests!).

Being of Irish descent, this resonated with me. Stunning, Joan. I loved the couple, the little girl, the kilt, the heritage, and, of course, your beautiful home and design. Thank you for sharing. Bev

WAIT!!!!! I thought you were maybe marrying off the girls to some Scottish Terriers?No? Then....I didn't see my name on a place card. I'll keep looking.

Truly lovely.

Me thinks you need a wedding.....
