We’re Celebrating Summer Solstice with this Artist-Inspired Shoot!

June 21, 2017

Happy Summer Solstice, loves! As if we needed an extra reason to celebrate the official mark of summer and sunniest day of the year, we’re sharing this darling shoot from Ivy and Honor. Inspired by the beautiful (and totally Chesapeake-chic) artwork of Kim Hovell, this incredible vendor team set the stage at the picturesque Inn at Perry Cabin. A watery palette of blues and greens proved to be the perfect accessory to this Eastern Shore landmark. We can’t get enough of this gallery from Ashley Relvas Photography

From Cate of Ivy & Honor: Our shoot was inspired by the work of Annapolis-based artist Kim Hovell. As a lifelong Maryland native, her strong connection to the Chesapeake and her love of the East Coast lifestyle provides the foundation for her artwork. She is primarily known for her oyster paintings. I was inspired to create an editorial around her artwork for two reasons. I share Kim’s deep personal connection to the Chesapeake and I love how her series utilizes a fairly vibrant color palette while still conveying a sense of tranquility. While searching for a venue, I couldn’t think of a better place to combine classic Chesapeake beauty with tranquility than the Inn at Perry Cabin. We wanted to showcase its classic, effortless elegance. We pulled directly from Kim’s work to create a palette of aqua, blue, white and champagne. For our tablescape, Kim custom made a handpainted table runner featuring her oyster paintings. We used understated but beautiful oyster-grey table linens and napkins, simple white China, and gold and wood flatware all to play off the organic and coastal inspired artwork. Our florals were a great illustration of the mixing of the organic elements of the artwork and the classical beauty of the venue–they mixed your classical white hydrangeas, pink-versions of which are scattered throughout the property, with loose organic blue florals such as thistle and green vines.
