Styled Shoot at Old Homestead Farm

Styled Shoot at Old Homestead Farm

Earlier this month I was involved in a styled photo shoot at a new wedding venue near Wilmington, NC called Old Homestead Farm! My friend Chelsea of Chelsea Allegra Photography coordinated and styled the whole shoot with an amazing team of vendors. Chelsea and I actually went to high school together, so it has been such a joy to reconnect and cheer each other on with our businesses. Despite the cold, this boho inspired styled shoot came together beautifully.

Chelsea reached out in December and asked if I would be willing to put together a wedding invitation suite for the shoot and I of course said yes! Working on wedding invitations is one of my big goals for 2019, so I knew this was the perfect way to jump start that. She sent over a Pinterest mood board for the shoot so I would have an idea of the vibe for the day and then I started sketching out ideas and bringing them to life.

Even though the venue is about 2 hours from Raleigh I wanted to go and be a part of the day, so I packed up my styling supplies and invitation suite and went to Rocky Point for the afternoon of the shoot. Thankfully the invitation styling took place inside, so I didn't have to brave the cold unlike the others! Seeing it all come together was so much fun, and I hope you enjoy some of the photos from the shoot!

Oh how so much can change so quickly!

Three Typical Invitation Wording Styles

One of the most frequent concerns my brides have is how in the world to word their wedding invitations! Do you keep it very traditional and old school, or should you add some modern flair and only include your first names? The good news is that nowadays there is not really a "right" or "wrong" way to do it - sure, there are some guidelines that can be helpful so you aren't making up all the wording yourselves, but it is your wedding day and your invitations should reflect you and your wedding style.

And after today you are going to be all kinds of knowledgeable about invitation suites that there will be no more confusion involved!
