We think a flower farm would be the dreamiest spot to say I Do and today’s stunning editorial shows us all the reasons why. Lyndsey Hamilton Events used every element of the landscape to frame the design for the shoot. Teaming up with Poppies & Posies, they set a goal to showcase the beauty of these famous gardens, as well as cut from the flowers grown on property for the bouquet + arrangements you’re about to see. The floral arrangements feature dahlias that have been growing on the Farm for over 100 years and the pears used in the place cards were foraged from tress on the property. Pretty amazing, right?!
Inviting Shawn Connell for Christian Oth Studio there to capture all the beauty was another genius move! Let’s have a look at the pretty this talented team created…
The ladies chose a perfect gown by Samuelle Couture for the shoot. We can’t get over those dreamy layers of tulle!
Everything about this watercolor pink bouquet is completely spot-on! So many great little bits of texture + those peonies + dahlias are serious show-stoppers.
We just have to know more about this beautiful flower farm backdrop. The team shares, Meadowburn Farm was once the country house of Helena Rutherfurd Ely (1858-1920), a pioneering figure in American horticulture at the turn of the 20th century and founding member of the Garden Club of America. Meadowburn Farm, a historic dairy, today makes and sells aged, semi-aged and fresh cheeses and other dairy products—all made right at the farm from the milk of our herd of prize Jersey cows. Meadowburn represents working traditions of animal care and rich perennial horticulture leading to the tastiest of all-natural cheeses and milk, and the unique beauty of heirloom flowers and flower gardens. The farm and gardens are spectacularly set along Wawayanda Creek (the original meadow “burn” or creek) in Warwick and Vernon Valley, in the rural northwest New Jersey-New York border.
We definitely want to see more…don’t you? Check out the pretty film by Reeling Films below:
