Ashton Hill Farm: Navy & Emerald Scottish Inspired Styled Shoot

A little rain didn't put a damper on this beautiful Scottish inspired styled shoot. I love the navy and emeralds, accented with the rich cranberry and gold tones.  Perfection!

101017-017101017-017 101017-022101017-022 The stationery and sign, provided by the brilliant designers at Zephyr Weddings, were accented with plaid and I adore the monogram they created for the shoot!

101017-040101017-040 I am absolutely in awe of the floral centerpiece Unique Events created for this shoot.  Words cannot express how blown away I am.  Beyond fantastic!!  The golden urn it filled added to the warmth and elegance of it.

101017-049101017-049 The tartan scarves were something I brought to the table, quite literally.  Everything else was provided by Unique Events.  The gold edged chargers were perfect!  The clear glass allowed the GORGEOUS barn wood table to be seen, as well as the tartan scarves.  The blue glass goblets were stunning and helped carry the navy tones throughout the table. 

101017-051101017-051 Each place setting was tied with jute and adorned with greenery.  The head table included a blue thistle on the bride and groom's setting.  The menus were another fabulous creation by Zephyr weddings.

101017-055101017-055 101017-070101017-070 I love the windows at Ashton Hill Farm.  The light they allow into the space is wonderful.

101017-088101017-088 In keeping with our warm and simple yet elegant look, Take the Cake Desserts created this stunning naked cake decorated with fresh berries.  The berries brought in the rich blue and red tones.

101017-101101017-101 Our models were perfection!  Taylor Welsh modeled was our bride ad Jack Cogan was our groom.  They were such a pleasure to work with!

101017-106101017-106 The stunning lace wedding gown and veil were provided by Brides by Jessa.  I cannot get over how perfectly divine this dress is.  The lace details along top were elegant and the button up back was stunning to say the least. 

Taylor's hair and makeup were brilliantly done by Eden Salon & Spa.  I love her soft curls!

101017-119101017-119 101017-120101017-120 I just want to take a minute to remark on how beautiful the bouquet is.  The blue thistles are set amongst stunning greenery and a variety of red florals.  It has an elegant, yet organic look.  Perfection!  Unique Events really outdid itself!

101017-121101017-121 Jack is wearing a fantastic navy suit from Prince Albert Tuxedos.  I love that the tie and the pocket square add the pop of cranberry while keeping the vest navy.  Such a classic, sophisticated look; especially with the brown shoes.  His cuff links, another "something old" added to the shoot, add the warmth of the gold tones and a tiny additional pop of red.  They are a golden Celtic knot set with a red stone in the center.  Another nod to the Scottish theme.

There are many amazing vendors mentioned throughout this blog post as their products are featured in the images, but there is one phenomenal vendor who was involved in all aspects of this inspiration shoot but cannot be seen in the images.  That is of course, Emily McMahon of Siorée Wedding & Event Planning.  Without her, none of this would have been possible.  I cannot sing her praises enough.  From the moment I came to her with my vision she has been beyond amazing. 

A huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone involved in bringing this vision to life!!!
