Often times, I will travel to our gardens with our landscape design team and become inspired by the work they create and the spaces they inspire. On one such particular day, I was inspired by the languid elegance of this garden in South Hampton. Designed and tailored specifically to the needs of the family, this Oak branch drifted out over a little cutout of gravel, an outdoor room as our team would call it, off of the porch where the family sips their afternoon cocktails. I imagined a small intimate wedding of no more than 20 or so, gathered together on a warm summer night sharing in the love of an “at-home” wedding. So I had to make it!


Swift + Company. helped us to pull the look together with their stunning rentals and these blush Silk & Willow napkins offer a contrast to the table creating a softness and picking up some of the floral shades to tie our entire scape together.

What’s a place setting without a beautifully designed menu and what’s a wedding without an invitation? Katie & Co. is one of my favorite stationery spots in town, and she’s one talented graphic designer! Using gold scrolled font, we worked with a plethora of mixed metals from rose gold flatware to gold chairs to silver goblets.

And then our bride … stunning in a romantic and ethereal piece from Ivory Bridal Atelier, she dazzled in this outdoor setting really highlighting the ambiance of this “faux-outdoor gathering.”


That talented Kelli Durham pulled it all together with her stunning photos, and now we’re swooning over them. A styled shoot, any designer will tell you, is a chance to flex their creative muscles and to image something outside the everyday – which is the fun that comes with job. And we’re so fortunate to have these amazing gardens in which to set our stage. After all – that clever Anne of Green Gables says, “Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worthwhile.”
