Wedding professionals team up to create a stunning photo shoot.
Celia & Aubrey
The Bearded Lady’s Jewel Box
Styled by Field Floral Studio
Maine weddings are traditionally identified by their iconic settings—overlooking the ocean, in a rustic barn, or at a lakeside camp. “While I love working in those locations, I wanted to explore the edgier side of urban Maine in Portland,” says Megan Hevenor of Field Floral Studio, who created the design for this inspiration photo shoot in collaboration with photographer Emily Delamater. “I was inspired by The Bearded Lady’s Jewel Box, which ran as a speakeasy for years before opening a permanent location to the public. It features a collection of dreamy glassware, kitschy ephemera, gothic candleholders, and full-scale murals.” For the cocktail party reception, Hevenor dressed brides Celia and Aubrey in luxuriously beaded gowns from Anna Campbell Australia, as well as a blue silk jumpsuit paired with bronze and gold statement jewelry from Lila Rice. They each held bouquets that matched their individual styles. Taking design cues from the bar’s decor, Hevenor installed lavish blue, white, and black plant material and cut flowers that appear to be growing on the U-shaped bar and lounge areas. “The florals matched and enhanced the room’s extravagant vibe, yet stayed modish with the dark, restricted color palette,” she says.
