This inspiration shoot is for all you organic farm lovers out there. This special farm set in a majestic valley right on the Russian River in Healdsburg, CA is teeming with butterflies, hummingbirds, moths, bees and all sorts of wildlife. Where the land once only produced grapes, it now produces all manner of veggies, fruits, and flowers from blackberries, zucchinis, and pumpkins, to peaches, figs, and tomatoes. Olive trees line the hills in addition to select remaining grapevines. The return of the land to a rich, bio-diverse landscape has welcomed back all of the wildlife and returned nutrition to the soil as these farmers rotate crops and use sustainable farming practices.
For this shoot, I teamed up with the farm's lead flower grower to source all of the flowers directly from their farm. I was thrilled at how much Spring bounty was available in April in the form of ranunculus, daffodils, irises, cosmos, columbine, sweet peas, young blackberries and so much more.
Our team of wedding professionals joined forces to demonstrate how an organic farm wedding can be sophisticated, elegant, and romantic with just the right touch.
