Puppy Wedding Styled Shoot

We’ve got a very special treat for you all today, and it comes in the form of a collaboration by Danfredo Photos + Films, Confetti & Co., and Kate Farley Design. Danni of Danfredo films imagined the nuptials of her two sweet pups, and built an entire styled shoot around her vision for their wedding day. To say the result is anything less than brilliant would be selling it short, but judge for yourselves!

From the photographer, Danni of Danfredo Photos + Films: My husband, Wilfredo, and I are both Philadelphia-based photographers and videographers (he’s my regular second shooter or, if a couple books us for both photo and video, he’s the primary videographer). Since we’re relatively new to the area, we thought it would be fun to collaborate with local vendors on a styled shoot – our first one ever. One night (over wine), I joked that we should use our dogs, Hudson and Chelsea (rescue pups from Little Paws Dachshund Rescue), as the models for our shoot. We laughed it off, but I knew we were on to something.

Over the past few months, I’ve become friends with Sara Murray at Confetti & Co. I approached her about the possibility of helping me put together a styled shoot featuring our puppies instead of people. She loved the idea and even volunteered her Frenchie, Millie, to be Chelsea’s maid of honor. Sara had worked a lot with Kate Farley and Ashley Wrenn-Peterson in the past and suggested I pitch the idea to them – they loved it, too. I’ve known the baker, Brooke Saylor, since her wedding day (I was the second shooter for her own wedding which was featured on Ruffled). They, too, recently moved to Philadelphia from NYC and we’ve become really close friends with her and her husband. We’ve also become friends with Claire Hudson, a pet portrait artist (she painted a watercolor logo for the happy couple and well as proper oil paint portraits of them) and Jackie Starker, who owns a local pet store. Claire’s golden doodle, Stamps, accepted the invitation to be Hudson’s best man. Together, all of us started planning Hudson and Chelsea’s industrial chic wedding. All together, we invited nine of Hudson and Chelsea’s friends to play parts in their wedding. For decor, we approached West Elm Philadelphia about donating some pieces for us to use for the shoot and they totally agreed! We built the set in the morning and shot all of our details before having the dogs show up at the venue.

From the stylist, Sara of Confetti & Co.: In styling this shoot, we really wanted to keep everything miniature! The biggest piece of styling for dogs was finding cute items that worked with the scale of everything. The adorable West Elm blue patterned salad plates (used as doggy dinner plates) were the jump off point. From there we softened the palette with some mints and then added a touch more vibrancy with pops of pinks and plums within the flowers and added more miniature details, like coasters for dog salad plates and votives as dog drinking glasses. It was fun working at a different scale!

From the florist, Kate of Kate Farley Design: Danni of Danfredo Photo + Films and Sara of confetti and co. approached me with the project idea and being a pup lover, they had me hooked before I could even finish reading the email. They gave me a color palette to work with consisting of soft peachy pinks, deep, romantic plums, sage greens and touches of grey. My color loving mind was racing with ideas for flower selections. I ended up choosing to work with the super romantic David Austin Juliet roses, pink celosia, pale pink astilbe, white lisianthus for some added lightness to the rich plum scabiosa. We also threw in some scabiosa pods for some added texture along with some inky viburnum berries to give the centerpiece a beautiful balance of light and dark.

From the stationer, Ashley of hello, bird.: My starting point for the paper for the shoot was the “couple” themselves. I wanted the invitation to be long and narrow, like Hudson and Chelsea. We had decided on a great color palette, and after seeing the portrait from Pennys & Stamps, I knew I wanted to pick up the mint in the writing. That long and narrow shape was carried through to the place cards and favor tags. The cake topper was circular to be a little more classic and cohesive with their gorgeous cake by Saylormade.

From the baker, Brooke of Saylormade: In my wedding cake business, I focus on making goodies that taste as delightful as they look, and I wanted these doggie treats to be no exception! I packed the cake full of good-for-you ingredients like carrots, peanut butter & wheat germ. But my favorite were definitely the peanut butter krispies with carob ganache, which is like fake chocolate! They loved it!

Romantic Philadelphia Wedding

One look at the incredible floral designs from 7Textures, and you’re bound to fall in love. Bride Rose mixed the soft aesthetic of the flowers with the rich and classic architecture of Philadelphia’s College of Physicians for a look that kept us guessing and simultaneously smitten. Thank you Redfield Photography for sharing your images!

From the bride, Rose: The great architecture and rich finishes of our venue were definitely a source of inspiration and served as a wonderful backdrop for our event. We aimed for a classic and romantic feel, with lots of whimsy and fun. We tried to always think about our guests during the planning process, and made sure to never take ourselves or the event too seriously.

Justin and I took about 10 minutes to ourselves right after the ceremony. We admired our new jewelry and had some quiet time to relax and really take everything in before heading out to all of our friends, family, and the awesome party awaiting us. For the most part, we trusted in our great vendors to execute our vision, but we couldn’t let the day go by without having our hand in a few DIY projects. I designed the printed goods (menus, invitations, save the dates, programs), and tapped my sister’s incredible talents for illustration duties. Justin and I designed our wedding website and he did the dirty work writing the code to bring it to life.

West Nyack Wedding Inspiration

Photos By: Reverie Supply

The shift from warmer weather into cool breezes can sometimes be a difficult one, but when we see stylish shoots like this one from Reverie Supply and Josephine Florals & Events, well, the transition becomes just a bit easier. This duo took pink and purple hues to craft a styled session centered around bohemian flair, lush floral design, and the whimsical love between two lovers, and the result is purely magical.

From the event designer and stylist, Josephine of Josephine Florals & Events: Our vision was to create and capture a romantic yet whimsical fall wedding. Set in beautifully landscaped greens adorned with vintage furniture and elegant linens this shoot captured the romance while highlighting the endearing moments of a wedding day through bursts of wildflowers, pops of color and playful details. We were also inspired to include a foot washing ceremony to share intimate moments of the bride and groom. This shoot embodied fall colors of green, rich burgundy, ivory and gold with pops of reds and pinks to liven the floral arrangements & overall design. Fruit was incorporated to accentuate our colors and provide dimension. What a way to embrace the coming harvest! For florals, I chose a mixture of greens, wildflowers and berries for varied texture along with beautifully deep purple hanging Amaranthus for character. For our tablescape, everything seen on the tables and alters were thoughtfully orchestrated to create elegant and full table scapes. We incorporated many handmade/DIY details including the Mr. & Mrs. Chair signs, the potted succulents for seating, confetti bags, banners & champagne skewers for that touch of personalization.

From the photographer, Sally of Reverie Supply: Inspiration for this shoot really came from how beautiful our model’s smile was. She made you want to smile with her. Isn’t that the very definition of a bride? All the attention is given to the bride, as she glows, smiles and exudes beauty from the love within on her very special day! Each element of the shoot was made to convey a romantic, whimsical fall inspiration. Creating a playful yet romantic shoot was key for me. So, the deep reds, blackberry colors, rich purples, punches of green were all telling of a story.
