“The inspiration behind this shoot was a small, sophisticated, elopement style wedding weekend. At [fab-ri-kāt], we are inspired by spaces and believe that beautiful architecture should speak for itself. John Brown General and Butchery does that wonderfully, it is a registered historic building from the 1930’s nestled in Baltimore’s “horse country.” The building immediately inspired French sophistication with its large fireplace, traditional stone work, and rustic farm table. We chose to show a sophisticated welcome reception following a rehearsal dinner for all of the couples that are choosing unique ways to celebrate their wedding weekends.
All of the elements are artisan or vintage to fit the historic rural space. The table-scape includes vintage mustard napkins acquired from an estate sale in Nashville, silverware from the 1950’s made by the Stieff Company, and hand thrown pottery table settings from Baltimore Clayworks. The cake is from Harmony Bakery with the lavender coming from Belvedere Farms.
The entire styled shoot is a representation of tying the past and present, woodlands and indoors, together into this historic building turned butcher shop.” – [fab-ri-kāt] team
