Edel Haus Farm :: Alpaca Styled Shoot :: Wall, NJ

Vintage Jewel Tone Wedding Inspiration at the Edel Haus Alpaca Farm
NJ Wedding Photographer

Edel Haus Farm Styled Shoot

Getting married on an Alpaca farm is perfect for the bride who loves animals and wants a low-key vibe. The Edel Haus Farm in Wall, NJ is just that; a truly unique wedding venue featuring alpacas as the main attraction, and for good reason: they are adorable and oh-so fluffy! Planning for this styled shoot began when I approached Jeanne from Bogath Weddings and Events, and asked her if she would be interested in collaborating. There was no hesitation and an immediate YES as soon as I said the magic word…alpacas. We then pulled together a dream team of professionals as unique as the farm itself. We chose to incorporate rustic elements from the farm and tempered them with vintage details and a color palette of rich jewel tones.

The invitation suite featured hand painted watercolor elements and the deep jewel tones that were used throughout and was further enhanced with curated vintage postage. The vintage theme and rustic location were further emphasized by the gorgeous Lace Aurora Gown designed by Yanique Barnes of Dreamers and Lovers. The gown has beautiful lace detail, a short train, and long sleeves. It was the perfect selection for the vintage autumn wedding. Other details included jewels in classic vintage designs, a stunning platinum and emerald necklace, and emerald green shoes for the bride from Badgley Mischka. Our model, Giana, was a Miss New Jersey finalist in the 2016 Miss America Pageant and she was so excited to put it all on!

We included a welcome station that greeted guests upon their arrival at the farm, a welcome sign in a brushed gold and black vintage frame, a blackberry mojito drink station, and a beautiful escort card display using an old window to which were pinned individual cards.

He hung out with our bride and groom wearing a beautiful floral wreath that included Purple Tulip Anthurium, green Hypericum, Misty Blue Limonium, Blue Eryngium, Safari Sunset Leucadendron, Blue Veronica, Israeli Ruscus, Astilbe, and Baker Fern. And while G.T. had moments where he wanted nothing more than to eat the bouquet, he gave us his best work and we ended up with some amazing bride, groom, and alpaca portraits!

For makeup, a deep eggplant color palette complimented the autumn and jewel tones used throughout the shoot.

Giana and Anthony really hit it off and were such great sports throughout the whole shoot. They spent the day making jokes about their “wedding day” and creating their own hashtags, and making up careers for their alter egos, Louise and Fred!

This shoot was, without a doubt a large and ambitious styled shoot that took months to put together, but the results are something the entire creative team is so proud to have been a part of!
