An Elegant Wedding at The Endicott Estate : Boston Wedding Photographer
Standing on its lush green lawn, accentuated by elm, spruce and weeping willow trees one can only describe The Endicott Estate as elegant. Stepping foot inside the grand 19th century mansion you are consumed by the beauty of this architectural gem. Without a doubt it screams sophistication. The perfect spot for an intimate and ridiculously stylish wedding. The inspiration for this shoot was just that.
The bride, feminine yet elegantly glamorous, wore a Jenny Packham figure-hugging gown, decked out in head-to-toe sequin embellishments. A perfect match paired with a groom in a classic Calvin Klein black tuxedo. For such a grand venue, it was important the floral elements, designed by Moonstone & Moss, represented old-world glamour. White tree peonies and frilly, with light pink ranunculus, took center stage in the table arrangements. Accentuated with accents from anemones, astilbe, and white & yellow roses. The scattered Black Knight Scabiosas added the perfect amount of moodiness and contrast to the tables cape.
From the calligrapher, Extras By Alaina…For The Endicott Estate, I approached each aspect of the paper goods based on the environment the estate exudes: Class, history, and luxury. For the invitation suite, I was inspired by the lovely navy & gold color palette. Pairing this combo with crisp, slightly flourished lettering and gold “greenery” as a border. I printed the invitation on shimmering opalescent paper and mounted it on an antique gold mat inside a deep navy enclosure to elevate the images even further. Upon completion of the invitation, I matched the hand-calligraphed place cards by penning each name with fine gold ink on navy card-stock. As for the dessert and champagne tags, I opted for dark lettering on the same shimmering paper used in the invitation, yet had a bit of fun with the lettering styles – reflective of a wedding reception.
