Autumn and Ireland come together in this shoot at Hampton’s Historic Post Office. “I was inspired by the cozy and quaint pubs that line the streets in Ireland,” says event stylist Kelsey Leeper. “I loved how at home I felt every time I entered into these pubs when I was visiting Ireland last summer, so I did my best to replicate that warm feeling.” Leeper chose to emulate her Emerald Isle experience with the colors of mustard yellow, rich gold and bronze and several shades of green, of course, along with crystal chandelier lighting and plenty of personal touches. Leeper says it was important to find a balance between masculine and feminine elements when choosing décor to create a sophisticated theme everyone could appreciate.
