Blake & Bekka


We loved working with Blake & Bekka for their October 2015 wedding at Summerfield. Bekka, her sister Ashley and myself had met several times in the months leading up to their wedding day. We had a solid plan which included a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Our handcrafted farm tables would line the drive right outside of the barn and would be beautifully lit with strands of globe lighting that hung from the Gathering Room to the fencing that runs along the horse pasture.

And then…. it rained. POURED actually…. for days leading up to the wedding and the day of. All ¬†of us went into rain mode, came up with a Plan B and it turned out beautifully. It’s at the end of an event like that when you sit back and think… you couldn’t imagine it any other way.









Most of the decor was DIY from Bekka and her family… including these adorable mini tree stumps carved with their initials.

Robert & Kristina’s Engagement Shoot



A few weeks ago, we had our first engagement shoot at Summerfield. Robert and Kristina decided on a wedding venue long before we began prepping for events but once they saw Tate Farms they knew it would be a perfect place for their engagement pictures.The couple and their photographers spent hours at the farm, utilizing every photo opportunity they could fit into their morning shoot.

Mother Nature and the Tate family¬†have intentionally and unitentionally stocked Tate Farms full of endless photo backdrops. Robert and Kristina’s shoot shows an excellent variety of those backdrops. The textures, colors, shadows, animals, and rustic farm items are just the beginning.
