I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!


In 1905, Eugene and Merrette Carpenter bought the mansion known today as 300 Clifton. Eugene played a major role in the formation of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and worked tirelessly in encouraging the people to become patrons of the arts. It was this devotion to the arts and bringing people together that inspired the concept of this shoot captured by photography duo Anywhere and Somewhere. With the styling help of This Love Weddings, floral beauty by A Day in Provence and calligraphy by Owl Post Calligraphy the timeless look came together in such a romantic way. We love the moodiness of the rainy day and that vintage Donna Karan gown from Shop Gossamer is on another level. Mashaida and Andrew of Anywhere and Somewhere captured all the details to perfection and we’re thrilled to be sharing them with you today.
