I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I put together this styled shoot! Here’s a look back:
Yesterday was such an exciting day! I officially became a published photographer! The styled wedding I worked so hard to put together (with the help of some amazing vendors) was published on ilovefarmweddings.com! I am on Cloud 9 right now!
Here is a little about the shoot:
With all the cold weather going on around the country, I wanted to put together a Spring-inspired wedding that took advantage of Florida’s gorgeous weather and showed the rest of the country what they have to look forward to. What this amazing team of vendors came up with is a wonderfully romantic, Spring farm wedding.
Sweetfields Farm just recently finished their barn and opened it up for receptions, so we wanted to show how that space could be utilized. Between the romantic draping Elegant Events did on the barn doors, and the amazing table setting, it really shows how the barn can be transformed.
The farm has a sunflower maze every year, so incorporating sunflowers into the session was a must, and Sherwood Florist did an amazing job with the centerpieces, bouquet, and boutonniere. Even A&P Designs was able to incorporate sunflowers into the menu design.
Sweetfields is also a “u-pick” organic methods farm, so The Fresh Chef created a menu based around what they grow right there on the farm.
In addition to the sunflowers, I wanted to incorporate Rosemary (which signifies love, friendship, and remembrance) throughout the shoot. From the floral arrangements, to the menu, to the table settings, you can find touches of rosemary.
I also included a couple of DIY projects in the shoot to add a little extra something. The champagne favors were made with some spray adhesive and gold glitter to go off of the gold accents in the table. I also made the burlap and lace clothes pins you see throughout the shoot. They were incredibly easy (just some clothes pins, glue, burlap and lace) but provided an extra touch of romance and texture.
I hope this gives you a glimpse of what’s to come as Spring approaches!
