Farm to Table Styled Shoot | Barn at Edgewood Farm | Standardsville VA
This idea has been floating around in my head for a while now. And when I met with Jessica of Main Street Weddings and Jane of the Barn at Edgewood Farm, we all agreed that a Farm to Table styled shoot was a great idea! Jane already had the most perfect venue (and she has goats!) and Jess is just wonderful at coordinating, and connecting vendors and all the things I wish I could do! We set our sights on April, and got to planning! With this amazingly talented team of vendors (see at end of this post!), I knew that this shoot would be incredible
Mayla Studios really went above and beyond to create our beautiful invitation suite! My favourite part may have been the rooster stamp on the envelope (big surprise there!) Pearl's Bake Shop took my vision for a naked cake to a whole new level! The detail her and her team put into this cake far exceeded anything I could have dreamed up myself! CVille BLOOMS added a lovely touch with clippings of her lovely succulents, giving us even more visual eye candy!
My sweet friend Brittney of Southern Grown Vintage provided a perfect gift basket of lavender, soaps, and fresh vegetables that worked so well with our theme. That girl makes the most thoughtful gift baskets for any occasion! Full Circle Catering provided the most tasty looking sweet potato rolls, which also helped warm up our beautiful tableware!
Darling D's Rental really came through with the rustic and farm feeling rentals we were looking for! I loved the mismatched place settings, wooden crates, and vintage chairs. Fifty Flowers were beyond generous with their gorgeous assortment of colorful (and lovely smelling) blooms! Sara of The Faded Poppy worked her magic to create a visually stunning table-scape, bouquet and boutonniere, and overall aesthetic for our shoot!
Our gorgeous models are extra special! Emily is a sweet friend of mine (and fellow photographer) and her boyfriend Greg is equally awesome! I'm pretty sure their own wedding bells will be ringing in the not to distant future ;)
Sweet Southern Beauty did a phenomenal job with hair and make-up. Folks, it was WINDY this day, and Lindsay put together the most adorable, whimsical braid with touches of greenery, along with soft, elegant makeup. I wish she had had time to do mine! White Dress by Greta Kay provided us with another visually stunning element...the dress! A soft, flowing gown, perfect for our windy day. The detail and beading is so intricate, and tied in perfectly to our theme!
We headed outside to make the best use of the gorgeous outdoor space! There is a beautiful pond, plenty of green space, trees, and MOUNTAINS! Heart eyes for days! Emily and Greg did the most amazing job modeling, and when it came to the animals, were not afraid to jump right in.
That's right, this styled shoot has live animals! If you have been following me for any time, you will recognize the handsome yellow fluff Greg is holding! Velvet the rooster was extremely well behaved!
That dress though!!
Jane's goats were really excited to meet our models (or maybe just eat their bouquet!) We had so much fun playing with these guys. Emily was such a trooper! We finished off the evening on a ridge overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Even with the cloudy skies, we still had gorgeous views! What an incredible day!
