This New England Styled Shoot was a fun and lively LGBTQ + offbeat showcase of the badass non-traditional woman. Originally planned for April 2020 by Sarah Brehant of Brehant Creations Events, the shoot was postponed due to COVID. The postponement provided the collaborators extra time to conceptualize non-traditional designs using the most feminine pastel color scheme out there.

The goal of the shoot was to showcase how unique, non-traditional designs can be coordinated with a very delicate color palette and truly have a “wow factor.” Jen from Jennifer Nichole & Co Photography was on hand to photograph the event. She captured the essence of each woman perfectly and showcased each bride and detail in all of their glory.

Ryan Designs provided the beautiful lounges and driftwood table that sits on 100 year old antique legs. They draped the ceremony area to frame the trees at Horizons, the beautiful venue that is usually a camp, that hosted this shoot and provided the perfect earthy setting. Amy, the florist, created tons of unique flowers everywhere, including the star of the show; an installation filled with colorful monstera, roses, pampas grass, antherium and thistle that trailed up the tree and set the scene for a unique ceremony setup. Petals & Plates provided their vintage tableware, including milk glass taper holders and beautifully made colorful goblets. Snassy Crafter created a custom-colored cheesecloth runner that draped across the driftwood table and Petals on Petals provided the offbeat flowers that were hand-painted. Next to the head table was a gorgeous three-tiered cake baked by AJ Marie Bakery that showcased the soft colors and has delicious macaroons covering the first tier. Queenie’s Cocktail Bar was the perfect form of added excitement with their beautiful vintage truck and cocktails to match the overall color scheme.

The brides were dolled up by Beauty by Chelsea Dae to reflect their natural beauty rather than cover it up. Tulaloo created stunning and bright stationery that was the perfect color scheme to bring it all together! The table showcased stunning menus that provided the guests names in vellum attached to the stationery for a different, unique idea. The gowns were all rented by an eco friendly bridal rental co. called Rent the Dress CT. Each one delicately made and draped off the bride’s body perfectly and showcased their beautiful tattoos.

In the end, the collaborators and all of the details that they coordinated made for a whimsical pastel styled New England Wedding!
