Part of the reason why I love my job so much is the fact that I get to work with other really amazing, talented people. This shoot was a blast for just that reason - we had an all-star team of women whom I respect and love. Elisa (who took all these photos!), Steph, Lora, Suz - you're all truly inspirational creators doing incredible work.
Inspired by the cold chill of winter and the comfort of warm tea and warmer conversation, we designed a space for a girl to gather with her bridesmaids, to play dress up, to adorn herself with jewels, to indulge in some earl grey and cakes. A collection of heirloom china from early 20th century English and French artisans paired with feminine watercolors and lush blooms created an inviting tablescape to sit and linger with friends.
Vintage pieces from the jeweler’s family collection were used on the table including sterling silver flatware in a Gurham pattern called Buckingham 1910, English bone china in a pattern called “Commodore” by Minton, and crystal Waterford glasses.
