We’ve fallen in head-over-heels with this Peach Grove wedding inspiration from Kari Rider Events. A twist on the traditional, this shoot has just touch of moody that takes this fruit-forward design to the next level! Thanks to Laura’s Focus Photography for the gorgeous shots.
From Kari Rider Events: Just as the meandering shorelines speak to the soul of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the lush fields speak to the heart. The beauties of land and sea exist in perfect harmony on the outer reaches of the Chesapeake Bay, though the latter tends to grab the spotlight. For this shoot, we took our inspiration from the serenity and sustenance of the agrarian side of Eastern Shore life, choosing a peach orchard as the backdrop for our rustic grove theme.
Cocooned beneath the leafy branches of the orchard’s charming peach trees, we created a scene influenced by the range of hues in the peach spectrum—from classic peach to deep crimson, and everything in between. Subtle nods to the fruit of the land—like peach-embellished paper goods from Cara Smith Designs, a peach tart from Bay Country Bakery at each place setting and a peach mint julep signature drink—were balanced with rich tones in the basketweave chargers and stunning floral arrangements rife with the fullest peony blooms we’ve ever seen! The floral color palette by Intrigue Design & Décor perfectly matched our vision of walking the line between a cheery and moody peach vibe. The addition of vibrant pink peonies created just the right pop amid a garden of deep rouge and burnt orange.
Loose, airy fabrics in the table linens and bridal gowns completed the look. Amsale’s Georgia gown from Garnish Boutique flowed effortlessly with the lush treescape and ivory sofa from XOXO Vintage. And the lace and tulle detail on the Christos Edith dress was the perfect complement to the golden hour light as the sun began setting behind the picturesque peach grove.
