This shoot was featured over a year ago, but since I was taking time away with my son, who was in the NICU all of last summer, I never had the chance to share it. It is one of my all time favorites. I grew up on the south short of Long Island, where the bay and ocean meet, and the smell of low tide fills me with nostalgia. When Cristina reached out with the concept of this shoot, I knew I had to be a part of it; it just felt like home to me. I mean, the idea of "the world is your oyster"? I adore that. Way more than I adore oysters, because let's be honest, they're slimy and gross and nowhere near as amazing as this shoot. At least, that's what I think.

What I love most about styled shoots is the creative freedom to play with designs and concepts that are a little different from what most Sincerely, Jackie couples select for themselves. I had been dying to great a deep indigo invitation, with stark white ink in modern style calligraphy; and this shoot was the perfect avenue for that creativity to happen! Look how incredibly lovely this shoot is. Every detail is perfect, from the feather bow tie to the actual sailboat the couple sailed away on. Cristina is the master of detail, and I am so glad my stationery was a detail she wanted to include.
