From Carretto Studio:
“A beautiful farmhouse, incredible details, a glamorous vintage Hillman, and a stunning couple? Sign me up! We are so so happy with how this styled shoot turned out! Huge thanks to all the vendors listed below that made this happen and a special thanks to Michelle from Absolutely In Events for putting this whole shoot together. We are so lucky to have worked with such a phenomenal team! Michelle’s vision of blush, silver, and soft lace was perfectly executed. The Longview Farmhouse was a perfect venue; it’s gardens and elegant, but homey feel set off this shoot beautifully. Sarah, our bride, was stunning in her Judd Waddell gown from Fleur De Lis Bridal Boutique, and our bridesmaids wore dresses from Bella Brdiesmaid. Their hair/makeup by Emily Miller could not have been more dreamy! The flowers by Bloomin’ Buckets were stunning: soft and ethereal with layers and layers of texture. The cakes by Jilly’s Cupcake Bar were incredible, and the food by Villa Farotto looked so delicious. Invitations and paper goods by M. Haley Design, decor from Grand Rental Station, and linens from Connie Duglin Linens lent their stunning pieces to this shoot.
The shoot was shot mostly on Fuji 400 film. We can’t get enough of how film captures color in such a soft and beautiful way. It was such a pleasure to photograph this shoot – it’s simply amazing to see the caliber of work that these vendors produce!”
