From the moment you drive down the dirt road, Sassafras Fork Farm arouses all of your senses, and it is hard to deny the immediate connection you feel with its heritage.
The barn is built of reclaimed wood and would provide the perfect backdrop for a reception where friends and family could gather. This shoot was a celebration of love that is old and of love that is new, both rooted in an organic longing to be needed. With Shutter Goes Click behind the lens and event design by Amanda Blair by Design, this team wanted to inspire brides to incorporate meaningful elements into their wedding day. Perhaps you can use a vintage piece of jewelry or china passed down three generations. Weaving together a story that is unique to you, a story that will be photographed, remembered and shared for years to come is something you’ll never regret. A story that will evolve as you evolve, but will always be rooted in the commitment you made on your wedding day to honor and cherish each other until death do you part.
The details of this shoot were inspired by the very essence of tradition, mismatched china, unique vintage glasses, and silverware pieced together a tablescape that was chic and timeless. Dusty blues and peach hues, seamlessly tied together the rustic yet feminine elements. The flowers that adorned the table were hand selected directly from the adjacent fields and the team watched in awe as their vibrancy filled the barn with a sense of pure romance.
