Tucked away in the rolling hills of Southwest Virginia is a gorgeous new wedding venue, the IVY ROSE BARN. When Virginia wedding photographer DANIELLE DEFAYETTE first discovered this magical new venue, she knew she wanted to shoot something gorgeous there and she's hit the mark with this delightful summery inspiration! Located on Ivy Rose Farms, which was established in early 2020, this breathtaking venue has been a passion project for the owners and you can definitely tell! Danielle tells us, "They've put so much thought and love into the space and I cannot wait to shoot weddings there soon! This stunning editorial was handcrafted by HEATHER BENGE and focused on the simplicity of a neutral colour palette. The wedding cake was designed with elegant white fondant shaped like petals. The charcuterie display featured honey from the Ivy Rose Farm and the couple were truly picture perfect and their chemistry was apparent throughout the shoot."
A huge thank you to Virginia wedding photographer DANIELLE DEFAYETTE for sharing this beautiful inspiration with us. Danielle is always seeking and finding joy and looking for that dreamy light - whether it's capturing incredible love stories for couples who appreciate timeless film images, obsessing over precious newborn cheeks, or taking crazy road trips to beautiful places with massive cotton candy coloured tulle dresses packed into the back of her car. "Capturing images has become second nature to me and I find myself searching for the human connection in every photograph I take. I believe in providing an unforgettable wedding photography experience for each of my couples, in addition to capturing classic, luminous, editorial images that have you falling in love all over again. Though my work, I focus on the simple and meaningful while manipulating light to capture the magic of each moment. My goal is to build a legacy through beautiful art that will provide meaning for generations to come." Head over to her portfolio to see more of her work.
