Orchard Love Shoot

by in Inspirations, Main on

Who’s ready for a dreamy post-wedding love shoot this fine Wednesday? If you just said “I am, I am!” then you’re in luck! Emily of Gem Photo sent this little lovely our way, complete with florals by the White Oak Flower Shoppe. Mia posed in her Anne Barge dress at the Gizdich Ranch. (VERY fun fact: Anne Barge made Mia’s mom’s wedding dress! The two were sorority sisters in college, and it was the first one she ever made!) Rumor has it Mia was so excited to be featured she wrote up a little paragraph to tell us more about the magical day. Check below for the details!

From Mia:

“My husband and I are from Atlanta, and we met at the University of Georgia. We were married in the June of 2009 on the beach in Ponte Vedra, FL. We were so blessed to have a beautiful ceremony with our amazing friends and family. However, our wedding photographer became seriously ill just before the wedding, and we weren’t able to get a lot of the pictures we had hoped for. We moved out to Palo Alto, CA in September 2009 and became friends with wonderful Emily. When she heard about our wedding photos, Emily insisted she give us a true Southern wedding re-creation. I was so excited to get to wear my gorgeous Anne Barge dress again, and we headed to an apple orchard in the Bay area for an incredible afternoon of pictures. We felt like we had gotten married all over again – our day in the orchard is another special day we will never forget!”
