E Session: Liz + Alton, Vintage Picnic

Total sweetness! We connected with Mabyn Ludke Photography late last summer just in time for perhaps the c-u-t-e-s-t vintage picnic engagement session!!! Styled with our wooden baskets and authentic plaid gear, this picnic is sophisticated and romantic, not to mention absolutely adorable!

Thanks to Mabyn for sharing these photos with us. Don’t you just love the way how she captures a couples spirit?!? And that blue polka dot dress worn by Liz…. L.O.V.E!!!!

Here are a few images to make your mouth water.

The session was photographed at the Fayetteville Canal. A complete gem! There really are very few other places that can compare to such a stunning landscape.

To rent this look, inquire about our wooden picnic baskets and vintage plaid gear.

E Session: Nadia + Mike, So Very Apple!

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a trip to Beak & Skiff on a crisp, fall day? The air, the view, the fritters….. ah!! The fritters! There is just something very nostalgic about a trip to go apple picking. Maybe it’s the scenic ride to the orchard, or the rustic tractor. Perhaps it is that first bite of apple fresh off the tree. Whatever the case may be, there are very few who could argue that apple picking isn’t one of the warmest feelings of the season. Wait did I say crisp earlier??… Love us some apple crisp. Ok focus! How can we though? The images that the EXTREMELY TALENTED Mabyn Ludke sent over from an engagement session that we styled this past fall are literally to die for.  The colors, the textures, the landscape…. swoon! It really is breathtaking. Add in a couple who is head over heels in love for each other, some classic vintage pieces, Mabyn behind the lens… well, that is how magic happens. Don’t you agree?!

E Session: Nicole + Brian, Part II

Thanks to Caitlyn and Saad for sharing the images from Nicole and Brian’s engagement session!! Cruising (foreshadowing!) through them was just so incredibly fun for us, especially to see how our pieces complement a couple and their vision. We just couldn’t fit it all into one post, so this round we bring you our tandem bicycle!

Nicole and Brian wanted to break up their engagement session from their vintage inspired train love story to a picturesque bike ride along the country side. No other place than the Fayetteville Canal could provide such a backdrop. And in late fall… breathtaking. A quick drive over from Jamesville, a new set of vintage inspired clothes, and there you have it! A peacefully beautiful ride along a rustic canal complete with the most sweetest couple!

Oh how fun thetandem really is!! When it is not being used for a session, you may just very well catch us cruising around Fayetteville.

To rent this look, please inquire about our tandem bicycle, picture frame, crates, scrabble letters and potato sack collection.

E Session: Nicole + Brian, Part I

When Nicole and Brian contacted us to help style their engagement session, thrilled would be an understatement. They were looking to create a vintage train inspired love story complete with an authentic setting and lots of character. We met over coffee to get the creative juices flowing and voila!

When we began running thru our inventory and what we could do to recreate their vision, the possibilities became endless. We talked and talked and talked! We knew that our steamer trunks, classic lingerie, suitcases and books would work just nicely. To tie the theme together we had to make use of our furniture factory moveing cart. They wanted a rustic, worn look. Nothing too polished or fancy. The Jamesville Quarry became the target location.

Nicole and Brian were also looking to use our tandem bicycle hottie, ‘Suri Cruise’ for a picturesque ride. We knew that one location would not suffice, so off to the races! We decided to separate looks and props between two diffrent settings and style a story for the couple. Add in a costume change and a quick drive over to the Fayetteville Canal  and  their session was complete!

The images captured by Caitlyn and Saad of Caitlyn Bom Photography are nothing short of masterpiece. This photog duo was an absolute pleasure to work with. They were fun, friendly and as you can see below, amazingly talented!

We are going to showcase this engagement session over a two-part post, because it is truly that stunning!

To complete this look, Nicole and Brian rented the following pieces:

Large Steamer Trunk, Factory Movers Cart no. 480, Blue Garment Travel Trunk filled with our classic lingerie, our suitcase collection and vintage books.

E-Session: Nicole + Brian

Nicole and Brian approached us just about a month ago to style their vintage train theme inspired love story engagement photos. Thrilled would be an understatement! Our large steamer trunk and vintage suitcases never disappoint! But the piece de resistance, the icing on our cake, our factory mover’s cart, no. 480! This sassy piece may be a bit rough around the edges to some, but for us, she was just right!

We had the pleasure of working with Caitlyn Bom Photography to capture this super creative engagement shoot. Here’s a sneak peek taken from our camera… more *better* photos to come from Caitlyn!

This couple belongs in a magazine!!!!

Talk about a swoon worthy engagement session at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchard courtesy of Mabyn Ludke Photography!!!! Here’s her latest sneak peek.

This couple was absolutely adorable. They laughed and giggled the whole time, completely in love. The best part… their faces when they saw our setup. It was totally priceless.

You know what they say, an apple a day is great for the wedding day 🙂
