All White, Modern Belle Mer photo shoot as seen in: SNEW Magazine

This shoot was designed for the inaugural destination issue of Southern New England Weddings Magazine. It would also eventually become a feature in my book The White Dress in color  and one of its images would grace its cover.

Despite that fact that this shoot took place in 2011, it is still one of my all time favorites!  Not necessarily because of the before-its-time design elements by Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events, or the stunning images that Carla Ten Eyck captured, or the epic place cards with antlers designed by Nichole Michel of Coral Pheasant Stationery + Design, or that crazy deer head ensconced in a wall of flowers designed by Tony Palmieri, which is the star of the video below. But, because of the collaboration of this incredible group that I have been fortunate to travel the world with!  It is hard to believe that 4 years has passed since this hot and steamy day! But, I am so proud of all that we have accomplished since then!
