This was further accomplished by the luxurious details styled by Dani Fine Photography, Tony Palmieri of Datura: A Modern Garden, Geoffrey Ecker and Kia Martinson of General Eclectic. Palmieri also designed gorgeous arrangements and custom bouquets to compliment each look worn by the models.

Full of grandeur and historic character, The Society Room of Hartford served as the perfect venue providing architectural drama and elegant interiors. We selected a rich jewel tone palette accented with silver and gold to create an overall majestic ambiance.

General Eclectic was a terrific resource to that end. Additionally we also had an amazing vintage dress provided by Tova’s Vintage Shop and a myriad of lavish jewels and other accessories provided by a variety stylists and experts. Beth Chapman, fashion stylist and owner of White Dress by the Shore was the genius behind the sumptuous gowns, fantastic headpieces, magnificent antique jewelry and accessories.
