New England Weddings – Peace & Love “Boho Chic” Style Shoot at Ferncroft Country Club

New England Weddings – Peace & Love “Boho Chic” Style Shoot at Ferncroft Country Club

I love to collaborate with my fellow wedding New England wedding vendors and friends. We don’t get the chance to work together often so when we have some free time, we get together to plan a style shoot. We would like to thank Seacoast Weddings Magazine for publishing this shoot for us!

What is a Style Shoot?

It’s when fellow wedding professionals get together and we all donate our time and resources to do a photoshoot to promote our talented selves along with offering up to bridal parties from all over different idea’s to consider. We ALL put a lot of time and money into doing these.

It takes months of planning, designing and for those of us who work day jobs, we take the days off to do them. Each person involved in the shoot donates there time, services and product. Yes it can get expensive but if everyone does there part promoting like I am right now, it will all come back to you! Awareness is key to success.

For example, did you know that Bucciarelli’s Butcher Shop & Deli also had bakery options? Contact Nicole to find out options!


Style shoots are designed to bring back a type of era and for the most part offer a “tribute” of sorts to era’s and I had a vision to bring back “Peace and Love” in this crazy world we live in and we gave a new twist on a Boho Chic style wedding!

When I met some of the staff at the Ferncroft Country Club in Middleton MA, they told me about the brand new ballroom they were building. So I immediately got in touch with there event planner Alex and proposed my idea to her and they were so on board! Little did we know the date we picked would be one day before there new Chiavari Chairs would arrive 🙁 They make a world of difference! So image your diningroom setup up with those chairs instead of these classics!


Check out these grounds and the photographic potential for your next event!



I then reached out to my good friend Tracy over at Inked-Events and asked her if she would like to execute this shoot and I was thrilled to hear she was on board too! She also was able to bring in one of her staff Maureen to create stationary and place cards too!

Tracy and I sat down and I gave her my wish list including models of real husband and wife Kayla and Tao Rizai who both are thinking of pursuing some modeling careers in the future. 



Thank you Kayla and Tao! I appreciate you making the trip and spending your day off with us!


Our good friends over at Black Thumb Studio came all the way from the south shore to shoot this for us and we are very grateful! We love Jeff and George and couldn’t be happier with how these turned out! All the photo’s except a few were shot by them! Thanks so much guys! Can’t wait to do it again someday!

At a Newburyport YPP meeting that I attended, I met Melissa and Scarlette of Free Range Floral and as they were wearing matching blush colored shirts, I gravitated towards them almost all night as they were so sweet and kind. Thanks for being so awesome! These florals are amazing!


Around that same time, I met hair stylist Elizabeth Lysik who is now Elizabeth Woundy of Teased Salon & Spa of Haverhill and asked her if she would like to do Kayla and Tao’s hair for the shoot and she came through for us!


Pure Bliss of Newburyport had a gown hanging in there window for quite a while that I was drooling over and when I was invited over there to take a look at a few options of gowns for this shoot, I couldn’t keep my eyes of this one so I sent pictures to Tracy and got her approval as well and ohhhhhhh baby!!!!!!!!!! Did it look amazing on Kayla!

Ohhh the VW Bus! My dreams came true when I heard that one of my brides from last year and her husband had restored one and was sitting in there driveway, I sent a text and plea and there you have it! Bud of Salem Five drove it over, hung out, had lunch with us and worked his portable office while we took some fun pictures with it! Thanks so much to Bud and Julie


The complete line up of vendors who made this happen will be below and I can’t thank everyone enough for making the time do this with me! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

On a personal note, my late mothers fine china was also featured in this shoot, something I don’t believe she ever would have seen. She probably was cursing me from above as this was her pride and joy and fearful something would happen to it. But we all took amazing care of it!
