Updike Farmspread Spring Open House Event

Filmed by Sweet Start | www.SweetStart.com

On a misty Sunday, May 20th, a few hours after the sun rose, Sweet Start Alex + Shawn found themselves on an ethereal fairytale farm right in the heart of Princeton, where you would least expect it.

Arriving only minutes after their hosts, Feather + Rock Events, Holly + Mia greeted Alex + Shawn excitedly. They still all looked up worriedly at the gray, overcast sky.

As the rest of the cast and crew showed up for the morning, the gorgeous styled shoots began to take shape as everyone who arrived hurriedly created beautiful settings inspired by Free the People, Anthropologie, + Pottery Barn.

Watch how everything quickly comes together, the beauty each team creates, + the incredible local vendors you will absolutely HAVE TO HAVE at your next epic event.

Music was captured live by the incredible performers of Owls & Lions.

What started as a day with impending rain, actually ended in sunshine, friends, and beautiful memories.
