Our Cairnwood Estate Shoot has been featured multiple times.
Most notably featured in:
The beginning of Spring evokes so much emotion. If you’re lucky enough to witness it in the Northeast, you’ll know there is nothing more inspiring than fresh flowers after a particularly chilly winter. Now add the architecture of a European inspired estate. Yes, please!
You can find the stunningly beautiful Cairnwood Estate located atop a hillside nestled just north of the bustle of Philadelphia in the Historic District of Bryn Athyn. Cairnwood Estate became the magnificent backdrop of our European Garden Inspired Shoot. Desiree’ of Devoted Wolf Events put together the swoon worthy team of wedding vendors in order to create a vintage, old world garden at the lovely estate.
The stunning details begin with the clean, Peachy Pink stationery suite that was created by Joanna with Eros Studios. “I wanted it to be modern, romantic and be indicative of a classy, elegant bride but with an edge – someone who likes to try something new but still respects formality and etiquette.”
The breathtaking bride, Justyna, wore a solid Ivory Marisa Bridals ball gown from Serendipity Bridal Collections located in Northfield, New Jersey and the groom, Evan, can be seen wearing a black on black Calvin Klein suit.
The bride’s hair and makeup was created by Allison of Allison C Beauty. Allison has some tips when trying to create your wedding day look.
“For brides’ special day, Hair and Makeup should be a reflection of their personal style. This will ensure the bride feels her best and is comfortable for a long day surrounded by loved ones as well as lots of cameras. Sticking with the classics is always a great foundation on deciding what look to go for, but the classics can always be modified to match the theme or style of the wedding itself.”
Brides should look for inspiration pictures in places such as bridal magazines, Pinterest, red carpet looks, and bridal dress designer campaigns. “Makeup should be fresh, clean and really emphasize the eyes especially for portraits and detail shots. Hairstyles should flatter the brides natural bone structure and hair extensions can also be added to provide length and/or volume. Brides should remember that their wedding day is going to be recorded forever and this is the time to trust the professionals to make them look and feel their very best!”
The accessories for the day wouldn’t have been complete without a stunning jewelry set from Johnsen Diamonds and the always fashionable Badgley Mischka bridal shoes.
The cake and macarons were designed by Beatriz of Sweeter Layers.
Melissa, with Vintage Kissed Rentals, brought some amazing and authentically vintage table settings and furniture to help create a romantic atmosphere. “Every single one of our vintage pieces are hand picked by us and we love to think about its history; the family tables they have graced and the parties they attended. Our vintage treasures add texture, beautiful tones, and elegant details to any event, large or small.” With names like The Biltmore and Viola, every single piece feels dripped in nostalgia.
Diana and Korey, the super fun duo of Timeless Visions Photography followed everyone around all day, getting behind the scenes footage and witnessing true love unfolding in front of their eyes. Again. Because, you see, Evan and Justyna aren’t models. *GASP* Nope. They’re just a newly married couple. Young and in love. Just like you!
“I cannot say enough about this stellar team of rockstars. Everyone arrived with their A-game (and a bunch of doughnuts and coffee!) I’m so thankful for each and every one of them and reminded every day how awesome our jobs really are! We get to work with love. That’s literally what we do. And nothing is more special or more rewarding.
And in order to continue to work with love, we have to be willing to be daring, to be creative, and think outside of the box. That’s why I love styled shoots so much. Not only is it a great way to work with your favorite friendors, it’s also a good way to network and meet new vendors in a more laid back environment. Showcasing our talents. Being creative is a must in our industry and these shoots are the best way for us to truly get creative with no restraints.” —Desiree’
