Vintage Romance Style Shoot

Vintage Romance Style Shoot


Just recently I was at Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm for their annual bridal open house. As usual, it was a fun weekend for us vendors as we caught up with each other and also met many wonderful couples. I had a great time and I was pleased to meet all of the newly engaged and excited couples in love!

Earl, Susan and their dedicated team were all on hand to showcase their beautiful facilities and welcome old and new friends alike. They also coordinated a Vintage Romance themed style shoot which I was so happy to be a part of, check out some of the photos below.
