The Nassau Inn is a historic hotel (founded in 1756!) with lots of character right in the center of downtown Princeton. When they approached Kyo Morishima Photography about partnering with stylist Kristin Rockhill to do a photo shoot showing off some of their wedding spaces, they were immediately on board. They met with Kristin and Jamie Volkert from the Nassau Inn to brainstorm ideas, and they mentioned that they always thought it would be fun to do a “MadMen” style shoot at the Nassau Inn, since it has such a charmingly retro vibe. Much to their delight, Kristin and Jamie loved the idea, and ran with it! As Jamie explained, “Our ultimate goal when planning this photo shoot was to bring to life all of the qualities the Inn has to offer and to show prospective couples that they really can have it all. The tree-adorned back patio adds just enough nature to your day while allowing you to still have the convenience of our elegant ballroom. The MadMen photo shoot brought to life the nostalgia of the property and showcased multiple venue spaces that the Nassau Inn has to offer.” Kristin pulled together a wonderful team for the photo shoot. April Nicole Designs created an unusual wooden backdrop wall for the ceremony setting on the Nassau Inn’s back patio, and West Elm donated decor and furniture for the outdoor lounge area. The bride’s dresses — which were just stunning — were from BHLDN. And we adore the bride’s perfect Sixties-style bouffant updo by Letitia Kakas. One of the best parts about this photo shoot was the chemistry between the male and female models. They are a couple in real life…. not engaged yet, but we were all nudging them to make it official soon. They sure seem like they are ready for it.
