Glamour & Grace — A Styled Shoot

A styled shoot inspired by the glamour and over-the-top fashions of the Triple Crown races.

Stephanie, the lead event planner at Jaclyn Watson Events had a vision.  “I imagined a southern belle with a bold red lip sitting in the back of a vintage Rolls Royce, driving up a dirt road lined by ancient trees. As it opens up, the white plantation with its large porch and beautiful columns glow in the sunlight. From the open front doors she can see straight through her childhood home’s foyer to the vast backyard where she will marry her love,” Stephanie describes. The vision was brought to life under a beautiful Chase Canopy tent set on the lawn of an elegant Connecticut farm. White chiffon draping created an ethereal summer vibe, softening the rustic farm table and cobblestone floor. Large palm fronds in all shapes and sizes mixed with white flora filled a tall gold urn in the center of the table. A beautiful presentation of southern favorites prepared by Forks & Fingers graced each plate. The day concluded with a delectable array of desserts.

Lilac & Honey

Flower garden hues of lilac and honey filled this modern, chic Boston hotel ballroom for a dreamy wedding.

Growing up, both Hillary and Zak’s parents were avid gardeners and took much pride in their designs. Hillary and Zak had visions of creating an indoor garden oasis for their ceremony and reception and Lo McShay of Lo Lo Event Design partnered with Poppy Floral Design to bring this vision to life. Meghan Perlow of Poppy Floral Design created a breathtaking floral Chuppah comprised of over 400 roses in creamy purple and honey hues. As a nod to Zak’s Moroccan heritage, paper lanterns with laser-cut Moroccan motifs were hung outside on the terrace where the cocktails were being served. The floral extravagance continued in the ballroom where terracotta pots overflowing with flowers and greens suspended from the ceiling hung over long mirrored tables. At the smaller tables, rose domes in three heights and shades added to the elegance of the room.
