Who would have thought it possible to have a rustic wedding without mason jars?! Brandi McComb Photography‘s ambitious vision of a rustic southern peach pie wedding is beautifully captured and perfectly comes to life in her photos.
Watching the behind the scenes video, you get a feel of just how fun this style shoot must have been. With models, photographers, and vendors full of excitement and energy, the success in the style shoot reflects how well everyone worked together.
Shot against a backdrop of a stunning rustic barn during a sunny September day, this peach pie wedding might be exactly the inspiration you southern belles are searching for!
Rustic weddings have become synonymous with burlap and mason jars. That’s why when I set out to create a styled shoot with a rustic theme, I knew we wouldn’t have either. Instead, I wanted to celebrate everything beautiful about living in the South. We love beauty, but also fun. We value tradition, but also whimsy. Community and individuality. So we chose a color scheme of navy, peach, and copper, and decided some of our design choices would be traditional while others would break from tradition to represent a real couple choosing things that were important or meaningful to them.
That’s why we chose the stunning bouquet and wedding cake to contrast with the bourbon peach cheesecakes and churros for dessert, all set at the beautiful Rustic Grace Estates in Van Alstyne, Texas. I knew that I wanted to do something ambitious, and that I wanted to capture shots representing every moment of a wedding beginning with the serendipitous first look and ending with the candy buffet farewell. This meant far more vendors than a typical styled shoot, and I began assembling a team from colleagues and vendor friends.
Our original shoot was in the spring, but turned out to be during the first week of a record setting month of rain and flooding. I rescheduled to September, and amazingly, many of my loyal vendors waited the entire five months to participate in the new shoot. Everyone worked hard, and shooting was furious. And just as you might expect of a photo shoot highlighting the best the South has to offer, friendships were forged and strengthened that day over glasses of ice cold peach tea.
