Poplar Springs Inn Wedding | Downton Abbey Shoot

Dec 9, 2014

Many of you have probably seen my post of the Downton Abbey feature from Style Me Pretty last week, but I am still super excited to be posting it on here!! This shoot was photographed at Poplar Springs Inn and Spa in Warrenton, VA and was my baby; for weeks Tyler & I spent hours e-mailing back and forth to make sure we were involving some of the best vendors in this area and staying on track with our vision. There were days I searched through eBay and Homegoods to find the perfect vintage perfume bottle or cake stand — everything mattered and needed to complement the entire shoot. Styled shoots are incredibly tough to pull off; you rely so heavily on all the vendors to make your vision come to life, hoping that you were thorough enough for them to see the end goal. You arrive on the day of the shoot and start putting the pieces together, hoping that they fit. And once they do, it’s as if a bit of magic happened.

Despite the best of our planning the forecast called for rain. I arrived, confused, to nothing but sunshine; with so many things to prepare, I didn’t have a second to think about it any further! It wasn’t until we were halfway through our couples portraits when I noticed the sky began to look a bit overcast. Rain drops slowly started to fall and as if in unison, everyone ran to take the vintage furniture under cover! Luckily the shower was brief and was followed by a gorgeous sunset.

I’ve said it once and will happily say it again — there is absolutely no way I could’ve pulled this off alone. A HUGE thank you to everyone involved, all our hard work and hours spent on this project paid off!
