Well Wed is one of the newest and trendiest wedding magazines available right now. You can pick up a copy at your local book store. Their magazine is colorful and provides a tremendous amount of inspiration for any couple planning a wedding. (They have several different magazines following industry leaders in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York)
In late May, a very talented team of top leading wedding professionals gathered to create one gorgeous shoot. JCF Events designed the shoot @Collinsville Axe Factory in Collinsville, Connecticut. The factory has vintage slate gray wood floors, large white windows with lots of panes and tall ceilings. Exposed wood beams support the ceiling and are painted white. The factory steps back in time to earlier days where they manufactured axes, hatchets and many other items.
We put two farmhouse style tables together and created one long romantic table setting. LOTS of little details were added to create a very romantic, French country feel.
The magazine feature is out on new stands mid-July. Make sure you pick up a copy! Their magazine is dripping with detail and full of incredible advice.
