A Summer Styled Shoot

summershoot1

This styled wedding shoot was six months in planning, and just kept getting bigger! What started out as an email from photographer Hillary Leah wanting to take photos eventually grew into a bigger shoot with 10 fabulous Chattanooga area wedding vendors.

We love styled shoots. It’s like putting together a “dream team” of vendors you’d love to work with more without the pressure and timeclock of an actual event. The creativity flows, everyone has a little time to visit and get to know one another… and they’re just fun.

Creekside Flower Farm is a stone’s throw away from us. Morgan grows all the wildflowers AND makes arrangements and floral decor – isn’t this bouquet stunning?

Kerry Dransoff is the bomb! She created this stunning wedding updo, tucking in a few leaves as accent

We are in love with these little gold and marble tables, paired with vintage furnishings from The Copper Quail. They made our deck look so styling!

We were delighted to meet Steve of Decor 1601, and to see our barn draped in soft white fabric! There are so many visions we have for this place, it was delightful to see this come to life.

The invitations were jaw-dropping, on specialty paper, watercolored and gold leafed… and even wax sealed. Laura of Laura Lines Calligraphy is so beyond talented.

The “ceremony” took place on our Front Lawn, in front of our massive old oak tree. We’ve no idea how old this tree is, but three people would be needed to circle it.

Ghost chairs from Luma Designs allow the forest to take center stage. Draping by Decor 1601, ivy from our grounds added by Creekside Flower Farm.

‘Reception’ was held behind the barn — we never grow tired of those rocks…

It was our model’s 2nd wedding anniversary on the day of the shoot. They stayed the night at the Cottage and we made arrangements for their sweet pooch to join on the fun!
