An Industrial Farm to Table Shoot


In late November I drove out into the country to Methven Vineyards. As I passed farm after farm and rolling hills of vineyards and forests, I slowly came up to this magical hill with grapevines surrounding it and the lovely winery sitting atop.

It was a chilly, freezing at points day, but with good wine graciously shared and a warm atmosphere inside, we had a wonderful time staging this dreamy wedding.  The food, provided by White Pepper was incredible with fresh homemade pies, rustic appetizers and a salmon main course. Wine, of course, provided by Methven, which I have to say was really good, we tried several different varieties from white to red and all were delicious. The flowers were all done by Bramble Floral Design who perfectly put together a color scheme and textures to compliment and inspire. 

I was happy to feature several new pieces - a champagne gold bridal skirt that's weightless and flows delicately as you walk; a navy blue lace bustier that fits like a dream with a matching head piece to accent; a modern copper sequin bridesmaid or reception dress that's fun as well as classic; and a new pair of earrings and necklace made just for this shoot using real preserved leaves. 

This shoot was styled lovingly and intelligently by Something Borrowed and captured beautifully by Aniko Productions. There is also a video of this shoot by Watertown Films who did such a lovely job capturing the entire look as well as all of the details that made this shoot.
