Tips for creating the perfect Holiday Pictures: 

  1. Choose a location with natural scenery for the best lighting and backgrounds or use your home as a backdrop.
  2. Be comfortable in what you choose to wear. I remember all of our family pictures were always done in white shirts and khaki pants and we all complained the whole time! Instead, choose a color scheme and incorporate different shades. This give everyone more flexibility and allows them to love what their wearing, in turn making them more comfortable behind the camera.
  3. Bring in some help with staging. WE CAN HELP! Whether you choose to get pictures done with a full set up like this one, or your family gathered around a vintage couch, we are here to help the setup and staging process easy for you.
  4. Find a professional photographer. Many photographers around the holidays will host “mini sessions” for discounted costs so you’re not breaking the bank. Hiring a professional will ensure that your getting the desired pictures and you’ll pictures to cherish. Opposed to a cell phone picture you can’t even enlarge for your home!
  5. HAVE FUN –¬†Embrace the silliness

Outdoor Ceremony – Rustic Chic – Carlee Farms, NC

Welcome to the Farm!

The trends are changing and we’re keeping you updated as you plan your wedding for this next season! Whether you’re calling it, “rustic chic or rustic elegance,” we have had so much fun styling and picking for this new look!

Brides are bringing in white and gold to accent outdoor spaces and wood textures. Our favorite addition has been the use of greenery throughout the ceremony, reception, and bouquets. Follow our posts in the next few weeks as we share ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception inspiration with these new trends in mind.

Walking through the stone trail leading down to a covered bridge, the trees open up to a ceremony stage we couldn’t take our eyes off of! With styling this area¬†we were able to use the space unlike¬†others would picture it. Rather than use the side decks for a bridal party, we brought in elegant accents with candle light and framed the stairway with pedestals to highlight the bride and groom.

While we love walking down the stone pathway and through the covered bridge… it’s just as fun to ride! As your guests walk back up the stone walkway to the barn, grab your groom for a horse and carriage ride around the pond for amazing views and an even better reception entrance.
