Effortless and sophisticated, this stunning inspiration shoot from Lucy Cuneo and Joy Thigpen is the epitome of elegant minimalism. Continue reading for more on their inspiration for this lovely bi-coastal shoot.

From Lucy Cuneo:

This ‘fantasy wedding’ shoot was put together in two parts with oversight, styling genius and lingerie provided by Joy Thigpen.   The ‘getting ready’ sequence was photographed on Martha’s Vineyard in a modern Cape-style renovation with great architectural detail and a monochromatic scheme.  We see model Olivia taking the time to relax on her wedding day, enjoying quiet simple pleasures and luxuriating in handmade silk garments.   Later she dresses in her elegant wedding gown and family jewelry.   For the second half, we are transported to New York City to the grounds of Gramercy Park and its picturesque Autumnal garden.  Dashing Timmy arrives to meet his bride in the privacy of the park and the pair pose for portraits before heading upstairs to the terrace for an intimate dinner party with their closest friends.   Flowers and tablescaping by Lisa Burgett provide a truly classic feel that shimmers.  Champagne flows and Timmy finds the right words to say, unprepared of course!

This is so beautiful, and I really love the concept of capturing the very first moments of the day which must be so lovely to look back on. Incredibly gorgeous couple, and styling (handmade lingerie is stunning!) and beautifully captured.

I love the idea of waking up the morning of my wedding and being able to slip into one of these gorgeous robes! They are stunning and would look perfect in the “preparation” photos that will be taken of me and my bridesmaids. Not only would it be easy to change into our dresses from these robes after hair and make up but we would look classy doing so! I would be so grateful if I was able to win the collections of robes! It would be the perfect start to the most important day of my life.
