Southern Peach Inspired Shoot

Photos By: One Summer Day

Wow, One Summer Day and Ashlee Virginia Events sure know how to get jaws dropping. Romantic and quaint, this orchard setting helps set the tone for an array of soft peaches and pinks that blend beautifully with just the right vintage details. Add fresh florals from Petals & Hedges, and you have inspiration that is sweet as a Southern peach.

From the photographers, Tara and Danny of One Summer Day: When we joined forces with Ashlee Virginia Events to come up with a concept for our styled shoot, we specifically had a fun and flirty aesthetic in mind. This shoot was designed around the idea of peaches, and how they are synonymous with those long Southern summers. Every detail, from the ultra-feminine ombre cake, to our bride-to-be’s dainty half-moon nails, was carefully curated to give a massive dose of eye-candy and inspiration. We’ve also included lots of dainty vintage details such as grandma’s mismatched china and glassware, to make this inspiration as lovely as possible.

If there’s one thing that makes a hot Southern summer a little sweeter, it’s peaches. Our inspiration was the lush surroundings of Hartland Orchard in sleepy little Markham, nestled in the heart of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. We wanted to put together a shoot for our beautiful couple that would reflect this love of peaches shared by all true blue Southern ladies and gents. We borrowed heavily from the colors of the ripe peaches in the trees, ranging from bright reds, to pinks, peaches, and finally, the prettiest of blush on those not-quite-ready for pickin’ ones.

We wanted our lovely couple, Martin and Miriam, to be able to sit down and enjoy the warm weather with some cool refreshments, in an orchard oasis for two. We brought in dozens of pretty details: vintage crystal, glassware and china, a stunning ombre ruffle cake, and a mix of modern and vintage pieces, to set the mood for the afternoon. Of course, the gorgeous flowers provided by Petals & Hedges brought everything together fabulously.
