Sunflower Styled Shoot
A Stunning, Sunflower-Inspired Celebration of Love in New Hampshire
When the owners of the historic Aldworth Manor in Harrisville, New Hampshire invited us to create an inclusive shoot showcasing the gorgeous fall colors of the Green Mountains, we jumped at the opportunity. We centered our styling around sunflowers - the perfect autumn bloom - and added burgundy, gold, blush, and marigold shades to complement the changing leaves surrounding the gorgeous mountaintop mansion.
Our models are a real couple who recently celebrated their one year wedding anniversary, and they could not be more in love. The incredible bouquets featuring sunflowers, roses, autumn berries, and flowing greens looked perfect with their blush and peach gowns. The floral focus carried over to the cake, a beautifully classic three-tiered white number, dusted with gold, with a fun purple surprise inside!
Together we explored the grounds of the well-appointed manor, from the windswept field, to the vintage stone garden wall, to the fairytale-esque trees arching over a path lined by rhododendrons, to the sunny Italian-style veranda where they cut the cake, to the marble sunroom with ivy-covered windows where we placed the table setting. Our tablescape, anchored by more enchanting blooms and an antique wood farm table, featured deep blue plates to showcase the sparkling gold flatware and details, alongside custom handpainted wine glasses. A delightfully charming invitation suite carried over the sunflower theme, and included a watercolor sketch of the venue on the address card - such a fun touch! Beautiful velvet ring boxes showcased two amazing rings, one round and one teardrop, at once unique and a perfect match for each other - just like our models. As winter approaches, this inspiration shoot will have you dreaming of next year's autumn leaves for months to come.
