Google+ V5 Behind the Scenes: Blue Ribbon Bounty - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

It’s hard to not post these images without squealing a bit. (Don’t we always say that? V5 is just too good!) This shoot (nicknamed our “Pie Shoot”) was born from a whirlwind staff meeting that ended with a list of pies, a rough sketch of a layout and big, fat smiling faces all around. Though the images from this shoot aren’t going up until tomorrow (we like to keep y’all on your toes!), these behind-the-scenes shots from our dear friend Cyn Kain are full of the homey kitchen culture that we were after.

Our first stop of the morning was at PieBird in Raleigh to pick up two dozen delicious pies. Packing them into Emily’s car safely was a feat, but they made it to our office in Chapel Hill in one piece!

Setting the table for this shoot was like preparing for Thanksgiving, y’all! It felt like Thanksgiving, too, when we all sat down to eat. Yummm.

Are y’all seeing these angles? Joey and Jessica were shooting in Lara’s living room, letting us get a little creative with the space.

We were so lucky that Toni and Chris at Heart Stone Films could join us to capture some behind-the-scenes action and that Heidi and Melissa from the Carolina Inn were on hand to do some amazing food styling.

A food shoot ain’t complete without the SW ladies donning aprons!

Are y’all ready for more? Check out this adorable video from Heart Stone Films!

    Oh my golly gosh! I don’t know which I’m more in love with, the pies or the crockery… (okay, the pies. But the crockery comes a close second). Where did those plates with the lace looking edges come from?
