The First French Farmhouse Styled Shoot – November 9, 2019
The most common question I get asked from Brides & Friends and family that are not in the wedding Industry is “What are all these photos you are posting and are they just stock images from online?” The Answer is no, all photos have been taken on property at The French Farmhouse Venue from either a styled shoot or engagement shoot or my handy iphone for a quick shot. Being new to the wedding industry the first thing we started to hear about 24/7 was “styled shoots” and being from the sports world were that is unheard of I had to figure out that these were all about! Once we started getting rolling, photographers and planners started reaching out to us to do one! Learning more and more these styled shoots are critical in the wedding industry! It is a chance for you to showcase what you bring to the table and team up with other vendors wanting to do the same thing!! Since the venue is still under construction this was so exciting because we get to give a visual to future bride and grooms and let them see what it would look like out here on the property even though the venue is not done yet! However, some of the photos are from inside the Inn which is finished and on property. The first step was to team up with an amazing set of vendors! Here is some photos from behind the scenes photos and shows a little of what all goes into a styled shoot and the vision behind it! So thankful for our first styled shoot to be done with these amazing vendors and we can’t wait to work with them in the future.

The beautiful bride and groom were the easy part as the Bride, Taylor and Myself are friends from high school. I attended Taylor and Caleb’s real wedding earlier in year and knew they would make the most beautiful couple. These columns will built into the Venue.

A good pictures show casing the details of the vendors coming together – The Rentals & Design, the calligraphy on each plate and the floral’s making the perfect table!

I even requested the names of the Bride and Groom on the invitation suite to be Steve and Michelle after the Owners as they just had their anniversary days before the shoot.
