Congress Hall reached out to Kay English Photography and I to work on the promotional photos for their new wedding marketing materials. Congress Hall is one of my all-time favorite destination wedding venues, so needless to say, I was on board immediately! If you haven’t had the pleasure of summering in Cape May at this historic landmark, you need to add it to your bucket list.
I was honored to join the Congress Hall team as the stylist and floral designer for this photo shoot, and we worked together very closely in the planning stages to make sure we stayed true to the venue’s ‘personality’ without working against it.
Decidedly, Congress Hall is preppy, it’s fun, it’s fresh and bright; it’s high society, in an approachable, friendly way. It’s Jackie O summering in the Hamptons. It’s yellow and white striped beach cabanas, ice cream at the pool, tandem bikes, croquet on the grand lawn, and all the best things about summer.
Kay and I called on The Painted Lilly to create gorgeous watercolor stationery and calligraphy for the shoot, and on past mutual clients of ours, Jenna and Eric, to model for the shoot and it was so fun to work with them again. Nothing beats working with models in real-life love. So without further adieu, head on over to the main page of Style Me Pretty to check out all the magic we helped create at Congress Hall!
