This may be the easiest blog post to write because we are going to point you to a beautiful blog post on Knotsvilla featuring a September photoshoot at the 1870 Farm in Chapel Hill, spearheaded by the talented Kelsea Merchant of HoneyBee Mine Events. The photos you’ll see were taken by Danielle Smith of DHS Photography and they are mesmerizing!
Before you head there, we first must share how much fun we had helping with this shoot! Collaborating with Kelsea, we explored several different looks before settling on the bold, retro place settings, bright hand-crafted runner, and table decor. After the table was set, those glorious flower bouquets by Art of Motion Events were placed and their vintage furniture arranged, the fab Boho cake from Artylicious Cakes positioned on our vintage suitcases, Sugar Euphoria‘s delicious macaroons stacked, the adorable Lil Photo Bus parked, and, with the models groomed in their smashing attire, everything was set for Rebecca and Danielle to capture the day. Needless to say, in spite of the rainy weather (or perhaps because of it!), we loved working with this team of professionals!
