ROSE & IVY Journal Garden Dreamer | Middleton Place in the Spring

It would be fair to say that Middleton Place is one my favorite places Stateside.  It is romantic, old world and charming in so many ways.  Still reflecting pools, narrow alleys lined with perfectly carved boxwoods, Spanish moss dangling from the old Wild Oak trees are just a few of the reasons that I love it so much.  For the fifth issue in the Journal, I traveled there, but it was in November when the warm weather blooms had faded and large blossoms of camellias were providing a colorful blanket on the grass. My recent trip to Charleston, I had to go back. The weather was  bit less cooperative than it was the first time, but once the sky broke and rain turned into a river at some points in the garden, the sun dramtically creeped out from behind the clouds illuminating the ponds. It was just heavenly.  Here is a peak inside of this magnificent place.

Thank you for getting back to me, I hope that you are having a lovely day.  I am writing to introduce you to ROSE & IVY Journal, a luxury publication that is released twice a year and covers fashion, beauty, travel and food.  The Journal is based in New York.  The seventh issue just launched last month and it can be viewed digitally and purchased in print at various newsstands.      The next issue is in progress and there will be a feature story on Paris including interviews with in-the-know Parisians such as fashion designers Laurence Dacade, Dice Kayek and a tour of Christophe Robin's Paris.  It will also include a round-up of new restaurants and where to stay.  I am traveling June 13th to 16th and would love to feature Le Roch Hotel in the magazine and wanted to see if it would be possible to host for one night, which would allow me to photograph the hotel as well.  In addition to magazine coverage, it will also appear on the website, similar to this feature.  In addition to some photography work in the Journal, here is a link to additional photography.   I would be happy to answer any questions!  I look forward to connecting.  Best Regards, Alison Engstrom
