If you have been with us for any stretch of time, you’ll have noticed that we at The White Wren have a love affair with stories. One of the truest blessings of our existence remains today, as ever, in hearing the narrative of couples’ meeting or the lovely misadventures of the many creatives that bring our features to fruition. In these, we are reminded that sometimes a story is more than a collection of words; sometimes a story is a place, or a rose, hands or a lock of hair: details and simple beatitudes that paint a picture of creation. They carry us to the far reaches of humanity and remind us in this crazy beautiful life that we are, all of us, living and reaching and loving beyond measure — if only you take a moment to breathe them in.
A word from photographer, Ashley of Ashley Nicole Photography:
“Perched on top of a hill and surrounded by a valley of vineyards sits Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, one of the most beautiful wedding venues on the East Coast. There, was the setting for a fine art bridal shoot curated by the lovely Belle Lumiere Magazine and stylist, Lauren Emerson. The gorgeous models wore incredible gowns from The Dress Theory and Alice in Ivory. They held bouquets full of delicate, beautiful florals finished with a touch of ribbon by Stella Wolfe.
The moments I captured at Pippin Hill are an authentic collection of film images that I not only find inspiring but a constant reminder to slow down, see the moment and tell the story. They remind me that beauty can simply be captured in a subtle, organic, and timeless manner.”
