In The Fields Of Manhattan, New York

We are pretty sure there are not any fields in Manhattan, New York! However that is where NYC wedding photographer, Trent Bailey is located and he took these lovely photos. They were actually taken in Louisiana.

Brooks and Bonnie did not have an engagement session, so this is their love session. Everyone drove down the winding country roads near Bonnie’s childhood home. They decided on a a wide-open field with two beautiful oak trees in the background.

Bonnie wanted to incorporate family heirlooms into the shoot. They used a church pew that was refinished by her grandfather, as well as various nick knacks such as her mother’s baby book and bible. The table is a spool that is used when electrical companies put up new power lines. They got pretty creative with all the props. The deserts look extra yummy made with love by Sucre- New Orleans.

Bonnie disassembled her sister’s wedding dress to make a top, and paired it with a silk skirt. The adorable hair accessories were actually made by Trent’s Studio 45 NY wife. Brooks wore a Billy Reid Shirt with his own suit, a jcrew bowtie, and sperry topsiders.

They both clean up pretty nice, don’t you think?
