The Inspiration

Our amazing team of vendors wanted to do an ethereal styled shoot using the ocean and the beautiful Tupper Manor. As we worked on the details of the shoot and collaborated with the other artists, we came up with a story to go with our shoot. It's a bit of a Cinderella story with a girl who dreams of her wedding day. The dressmaker made matching bridal skirts for the bride and little girl. We loved working on this shoot and hope you'll like it as much as we do! 

Once upon a time...

... there was a little girl who lived in a beautiful Manor that overlooked the ocean. Every day she would walk along the seashore collecting treasures and imagining where they came from.

One day...

... she found a bottle that had washed up on the beach. She opened it and found a note from a boy from across the ocean. She wrote back to the boy and for years they exchanged letters.

Years passed...

... and their friendship turned to love and they vowed that one day they would marry. The girl grew to be a beautiful woman and every day walked along the beach waiting for her love to return. She would wait and imagine their seaside wedding filled with flowers and festivities.
