Cairnwood Estate Front Shoot | Part One of Styled Shoots Across America

Styled Shoots are so much fun! I love when I am able to contribute and help bring to life the story of a shoot. I was recently involved with the amazing organization, Styled Shoots Across America, who organized a series of styled shoots in Philadelphia, PA at Cairnwood Estate! If you’ve read my previous blogs, you know how much I LOVE this wedding venue as it is where I was married! Needless to say, I was thrilled to be a part of the styled shoots! The first of the styled shoots was the Cairnwood Estate front shoot, which took place outside in the front of the venue.

Cairnwood Estate Front Shoot

The goal was to show off the architectural detail of the estate building, as well as the lovely grounds of the venue. The front entryway was decorated in light colored, white and pink hued flowers. The flowers climbed up to the balcony above the entrance, creating a dramatic, yet elegant look. The student team at Intrigue Designs led by Eternal bouquets by JM did a fantastic job decorating the front of the building and incorporating the same timeless look throughout the shoot. 

Flowers decorated the tables of the reception area as well as the dessert table which featured a stunning wedding cake with such intricate detail. The picture detail on the cake reflected the same romantic garden theme seen on the invitations and flat lay design. The team of vendors all went above and beyond to create this beautiful shoot that felt like a walk through a dreamy European garden.
