From the Photographer: 

“The [style shoot] was based on a real couple, Hilary and Paul, who wanted to bring to life their version of the famous founding couple, John and Abigail Adams. ‘The Adams’ relationship is an inspiration and John Adams’ core values and morals were way beyond his time. We admired their relationship so much we used one of their [estimated 12,000] love letters as a reading in our wedding ceremony,’ said Hilary. It was well known that Mr. and Mrs. Adams were avid letter writers, so we decided to incorporate the theme of love letters into the [style shoot] as well. Our calligrapher, also a bit of a history buff it would seem, went online and found us Abigail Adams stamps for the invitation suite and even researched the address at which Abigail had been living before her marriage to use on the RSVP cards. While John was in office many people called the couple ‘Mr. President’ and ‘Mrs. President,’ so we made some mugs with those titles on the side.'” —Mollie Tobias Photography
