Fall Branch, TN: A Vintage Summer Garden Styled Shoot at Cave Springs Farm


With all of this amazing sunshine and blooming flowers and trees, I can’t help but get incredibly excited for this coming Summer! I just love the warmth, soft grass and abundance of sun. It’s truly my favorite season!

This past Summer, I had the honor to photograph a styled wedding shoot alongside some of my favorite photographers and vendors here in northeast Tennessee! Melissa Baskette, of Piney Rose Designs, hosted all of us on her beautiful farm, Cave Springs Farm, and styled the whole session! She designed everything around the theme, “vintage summer garden,” and included so many unique, vintage inspired, furniture and decorations— which I absolutely love! Annie’s Room, a bridal boutique here in the Tri-Cities, so graciously allowed us to borrow a stunning gown for our model. Eva Psimer (Hello Beautiful) and Shonda Westbrook did a fabulous job with makeup and hair! The earrings and hair comb completed the bride’s vintage look!

I loved all of the colors and vintage aspects of the day! Filomena, of Filomena’s Florals, knocked it out of the park with her stunning bouquet and boutonniere with sunflowers and dahlias. Chimney Top Blooms provided beautiful, fresh floral arrangements for the reception table, cake table, and around the farm! The colors were so saturated and gorgeous! Of course, we can’t have a wedding without cake- huge thanks to Petite Sweets for a beautiful (and delicious) cake! We all had a piece at the end of the day as we enjoyed some air conditioning, ha!

Thank you, Melissa, for inviting me to be a part of such a beautiful day! It was great to work with everyone and create these photographs! Another thanks to our wonderful models, Abbey and Seth, who were troopers and great team players! I can only imagine what it was like to have a group of photographers asking to pose all types of ways! Thank you all, again!

Big thanks to all vendors who contributed and made this shoot fun and beautiful!
