When   Alyson Newquist of   The Bash Collective   and   Juliane James Place   contacted us about   doing a Duluth-themed shoot   and asked if we had a couple in mind, we unanimously exclaimed SARA LEE & ALLYSON!

This gorgeous & crazy-in-love pair made the most inspirational models. It was also the perfect way to celebrate the passage of the same-sex marriage amendment in Minnesota, which we are all about here at Saffron & Grey! BONUS - There was also a yurt, beer, & the couple’s stunningly beautiful canine, Monet.

Fashion Friday: January 2015

Sometimes the styled-shoot stars align and you get magic, we tell you, magic! We were lucky to have the most wonderful models, the loveliest weather, the best cohorts, and the most inspiring location.

We spent the day at the beautifully-restored   Brule River Barn   in Brule, WI. Owners Kirk and Jill Clemmer painstakingly restored the structure in order to host their first (and most important!) event - their daughter's wedding!

We simply have to talk about this pie! The one and only  Madeline Island Bakery  - super stars of the Apostle Islands - made a myriad of desserts that not only looked gorgeous, but tasted out of this world! Make sure to look for their retail space in downtown Madeline Island - opening this spring!

Leather and metal played nicely with the rustic ruggedness of the space.
