When I was a kid, we spent every summer vacation in Florida.  And on our way to the beach from Tennessee, we would always stop in GA for fresh peaches.  A peach always brings back the best memories for me and it's a great symbol for summer.  That's why I decided to use it as my jumping off point for this inspiration shoot.  We also incorporated botanical elements like the old farm table and garden bistro chairs, antique fruit crates, herbs, and old botanical sketches were used on the menus, invitations, and guest book.  
Nature provides the best color palette so yellow, peach, creamy white, and green were pulled right from the skin of a peach.  My favorite items are the "chandelier" we created out of natural vines and since I love items with a history, I thought the antique pie safe was a perfect place to display the mini peach cobbler desserts and the lemon thyme signature drink.

Our Location for this shoot was Pleasant Hill Vineyard in Maryville, TN.  I must have been hiding under a rock because I had never heard of this location before Jennifer told me about it.  This property is so well taken care of and has several different options for a ceremony set up including a vineyard, a gazebo, a barn, as well as a really beautiful forrest.  Unfortunately there had been a monsoon the day before and morning of this shoot (see that super grey sky!) ... so we were a little limited by where we could go on the property.  Regardless, we were still able to get some amazing images to showcase what a beautiful place it is.  And lets just hope that next spring/summer our rainy days in Tennessee will be more managable!

You might recognize the models, Sara and Jack.  Sara is my second shooter and one of my favorite people in the whole world.  She has been working with me for 5 years now (I think 5?) ... anyway I love her!  She and her sweet beau, Jack, have modeled for me on other occasions and they are always so much fun to photograph.  I'm looking forward to the day we do a REAL session with these two!

The rain held off just long enough and once it started coming down again we went inside the barn for a few more images.  I love locations like this!!!!
