A Bushel & A Peck


Finally! Today is the day I share my most favorite shoot ever with the loveliest imagery captured by no other than Tec Petaja. This shoot graced the cover of Southern Weddings Magazine volume 7 and I couldn’t feel more grateful for such an incredible opportunity to share my passions and do my best work. There’s a full list of talented artists below who made this editorial possible and I urge you to check out each and every one. You can also snag a copy of the beautiful magazine for yourself over here. I present to you, A Bushel and A Peck.

One of my favorite images from the entire production. Goodness I love the South!

Our tablescape was set up in a perfectly appropriate peach tree orchard deep in the heart of North Carolina.

Using foraged peach tree branches throughout the centerpieces made for some pretty awesome florals! Together with the various types of dahlias, garden roses and sweetheart roses, the arrangements were some of my favorite this season. Oversized, lush, textural and very very lovely. I also loved the chambray napkins that were embroidered with each ‘guest’s’ monogram meant to serve double duty as a take home favor.
