I must say, y’all, I’m extra excited to share the behind the scenes of V7’s A Bushel and a Peck because this is by far the best my hair has ever looked at an editorial shoot! ;) It was such a blast to be on both sides of this shoot–one of our biggest of the year, with incredible vendors who flew in from across the country to take part, including our photographer, Tec Petaja, and florist/stylist, Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events. Our Blue Ribbon Vendor, Nancy Ray Photography captured all of the magic that went on behind the scenes, from invitation styling and film rolling, to bug spraying and table setting!
Oh, how we love Fearrington! There are so many beautiful nooks and crannies in the gardens that we took full advantage of.
I just have to pause for a second because the photo below makes me smile so much–thanks for protecting me from mosquitoes, fiancé! :)
Spending time together and with friends doing something we love so much is one of the best things about shoot days. Kristin drove down from Virginia to be on hand, and Rhiannon flew all the way from Michigan to style and create the most amazing floral arrangements for us.
After wrapping up at Fearrington, we packed up in about five cars and headed an hour west to the perfect peach orchard we had selected. It was the loveliest setting for our table, plus a bunch of bride and groom portraits!
Ladder-less, Tec had to climb onto a very precarious stack of crates to photograph the food! We did our best to spot him and make sure he didn’t fall face down into the peach galette :)
The day ended the way all the best shoot days do: hot, sweaty, tired, and bugspray-scented, but overwhelmingly happy, grateful, and excited about creating something truly meaningful and inspiring. Stay tuned for more editorials coming up over the next few weeks, and don’t forget to order your copy of V7 here!
