Today’s feature from a collaborative effort by Melanie Reyes Photography and Dayna Mae Photography is sure to knock your socks off and to give you all the inspiration you need for your Vintage & Rustic affair. Gorgeous doesn’t even begin to express this beauty of a collection!

This stunning “Vintage to Vogue” inspired Styled Shoot at Cottonwood Barn in Dexter, MI, was designed and orchestrated by Kaeli Garcia of Luna Soiree Events. Alongside planning their Grand Opening Event, Kaeli was inspired to create a styled shoot, drawing on transformation: the rich, awe-inspiring colors of Autumn in Michigan, and the restoration of this breathtaking property.

“I wanted to pay homage to the old vintage barn it used to be, and highlight the gorgeous, elegant and very vogue finishes that were the result of an amazing renovation. On Tuesday, we got to put it all together, with a style shoot in the afternoon, and the event in the evening– it was all pretty darn fabulous!” Photography a collaborative effort of Melanie Reyes Photography (lead) and Dayna Mae Photography (second).
