This lovely shoot marries hand crafted wedding details with pastoral elegance at The Stone Barn farmhouse in Maine! Stylist and film photographer, Justina Bilodeau, was inspired to design a shoot that captured the romance of a farm wedding with elegant style. A soft pastel palette, dainty vintage decor, and incredible handmade details brought her idea of an elegant and airy barn wedding to life!
Hand Crafted Wedding Shoot with Pastoral Charm
In order to create an organic feel to complement the farm estate, Justina Bilodeau focused on hand crafted wedding details, starting with the stationery suite that Bijou Creative created with handmade paper. The natural texture and dainty inked floral details created a beautifully personal invitation – the paper was also used to script vows for the couple to cherish, along with hand bound vow notebooks. Marigold Floral Studio created lush floral arrangements in soft pastel shades of blush, peach, and white to add subtle color to the bride’s champagne wedding dress. The hand embroidered gown from Joanne Fleming Design added a fairy tale quality to the pastoral setting, with a matching bolero that perfectly matched the romance of the vintage furniture. A glamorous gold stand showcased the gorgeous wedding elements and served as the perfect showstopping cake display!
The golden stone walls of the barn and campagne farm table created a warm and welcoming reception space. A hand dyed silk runner set with dozens of pillar candles added just the right ethereal touch to the rustic surroundings, while hand thrown pottery plates, modern gold flatware, and vintage crystal stemware created an elegant atmosphere. The most charming guests – goats with floral garlands – served as a reminder that the gracious venue is actually a working farm!
