From Haystack Film Gathering... We have a small group of film shooters in DFW and instead of a usual get-together we decided to have regular gatherings where we collaborate with local vendors to create beautiful images. 10 photographers have shared their favorite photos including: Ben Q. Photography, Jeff Brummett Visuals, Marianne Sabado Fine Art Photography, Nicole Berrett Photography, Kirstie Marie Photography, Heather Moore Photography, Danielle M. Sabol, Abbie McFarland Photography, Lauren Peele Photography, and Heather Hawkins Photography. Avalon Legacy Ranch in McKinney was the perfect backdrop!

The property had a variety of scenery including lush greenery, a wooden barn and a calm lake. We had a gorgeous farm table with wooden bistro chairs and delicious food on top. A long garland runner made our tablescape complete. We had two amazing stationers provide us with unique paper goods. U Lucky Girl gave us the invitation suite using Recycled Kraft envelopes made from grocery bags. The organic typography gives a handwritten feel and the twine tied around the envelopes channels the natural ways of the kinfolk subculture. The Eclectic Press contributed the black and white invitation set. The set was created for the couple that wants a less is more approach for their paper goods. The text is minimal with a lot of negative space in the design and a contrasting full vintage peony backing. Both also gave us various menu cards and custom place setting cards.

Our bride and bridesmaids models were perfectly dressed in gowns provided by Stardust Bridal Salon. Hair was kept unstructured, with tousled, textured waves swept into effortless twists and braids that perfectly compliment their ivy halos. We love how every photographer has their own unique take on the same shoot and would love to see it featured in this unique way! Models: Sara and Derek Abel, Jessika Monsey, Crystal Luttrell and Ashley Albin.
