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 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.

Check!

Name, check. Inventory, check – but let’s get more… who doesn’t love a shopping trip? Website…. wow, that was a long check, who knew there were dozens of providers and five times as many differences between them. Consult with an accountant, check. County Clerk’s Office, check. Facebook, check. Consult with an accountant again, check. Blog (Finally!), check. Connect with local professionals, share concept and hope they like you, check, check and check!!!

Fast forward from last March, we are so proud of our accomplishments. Nothing is more satisfying than meeting with new people, sharing your concept and hearing their encouragement. We have gained the support from so many talented vendors, it’s quite a humbling experience. And the best part about all of this is, we get to do what we love!!! So in the near future, lots more to work on. Logo and branding, business cards, inventory and lots more connecting.

We continue to build our inventory and every day we are on the hunt. After all, you never know when that “find” is upon you. So without further adieu, here’s a snap shot of our most favorite finds.
