Up the Creek Farms Styled Shoot!
It is my absolute pleasure to present to you a brand new venue in Florida! A wedding photographer's dream!! Up the Creek Farms is a one of a kind, gorgeous property in Valkaria just 20 min. south of downtown Melbourne. Jessica, the owner, has turned her childhood home into a charming bed and breakfast for bridal parties. She has also built a 6,000 sq ft (air conditioned!) barn on her amazing hilly terrain that overlooks a sea of spanish moss draped oak trees and a winding stream. Jessica has a vintage/antique rentals business right there for you to pick through including everything from furniture to table linens and props!
I was so excited to work with this team and create something truly beautiful. Patti from Buds Etc. brought my vision to a whole new level with her lavish table spread of fresh florals. Candice's lacy cake is a dream. That light pink is perfection and we all loved tasting Flour & Spice's macaroons, yum!! This was my first time working with Julia from After a While Crocodile and I am SO impressed with her attention to detail! I LOVED her signage and invitation suite. Don't you just adore the bride and groom signs on their feminine and masculine appropriate chairs!? The team wouldn't be complete without Joanna from In2YourBeauty Makeup Artistry. She not only worked her magic with makeup but helped out like crazy throughout the shoot.
Danae and Matt were wonderful models! The dress was a treasure of a find on Etsy from the 1930s and fit Danae like a glove. She was born to wear lace with that gorgeous long blond hair!!

We took a few prep pictures in the house... I love old homes with nooks and crannies. They are so much fun to light and shoot!
