Modern and Rustic Winter Styled Shoot

It is always good to start Monday with a styled shoot that brightens Winter. Guys, these glimpses and teases of warm weather have been amazing. I literally asked Rusty before bed last night if we can live at the lake this summer. Hey agreed to it. It was an easy sell for me.

Even though warm weather is far off I don't mind (at all) celebrating a little winter styled shoot. Some reasons why I love styled shoots:

1. You can gather a ton of inspiration or you may only have one important detail stick out.
2. I love when talented vendors get together to show off their awesomeness.
3. I just enjoy the idea of taking something you see in your head and creating that magic in real life.

Star Noir Studio sent over today's wonderful rustic shoot but it is different than most rustic decor. It is a healthy mix of new and old. Where you have a beat up favors table, you have a shiny mirrored trunk. Where you have a farm style kitchen chair at the table you also have modern, nail trim chairs. This styled shoot shows you how to make rustic and modern decor work together. And...I love it.

I LOVE this time of year. The nip in the air makes you want to curl up on the couch with a good book. People seem happier, more generous and more willing to smile. And there is just something wonderful about getting to have special decorations that makes everything seem a bit more fun. That's why I went to Events with Alexa to help me put together this shoot. The idea behind it is a more modern take on a Rustic Winter Inspired Wedding. Instead of the well-known dark green and red, we used blush, browns and grays, with pops of red. We set up in the apple orchard at Meadhaven on what had to be the coldest day this year, and Alexa made everything come together beautifully.
