Southern Summer Peach Anniversary Shoot by Peach Blossom Photography

We love firsts here at Heart Love Weddings. First dates, first kisses, first looks, and first dances (just to name a few). We’re thankful today that this is the first first anniversary shoot we’ve featured! We fell instantly in love with the colors, the adorable couple, and sweet peaches. We love the inclusion of their wedding day props, including the same blue dress the bride wore to her rehearsal dinner! The peach stand in the middle of a peach farm serving sweet tea (a Southern staple) and yummy peach ice cream is just too cute. Even cuter? The images are being turned into a book by the fabulous Peach Blossom Photography for the couple to gift each other on their first anniversary (also known as the paper anniversary)!! We couldn’t love it more!! :)

Jeremy and Aubry were set up by their own sisters, who were friends in high school. One day, Aubry received a random text from someone identifying himself only as Jessica’s brother. She wasn’t even sure who Jessica was! After a few more text messages and phone calls, a first date was planned. Jeremy was very interested and persistent right from the start, but Aubry was too busy with summer classes to show much interest. Once classes were over and fall approached, Jeremy and Aubry were able to spend more time with each other and began to feel that they were meant to be together. In late October, after a night of dinner and carving pumpkins, Aubry asked Jeremy to be her boyfriend! Love it!

Early on Jeremy and Aubry loved to talk on the phone. Every time that Jeremy dropped off Aubry, he would always call to let her know he had arrived safely at home. Oftentimes, they would chat into the night, and then again in the early morning. It was on one of those late night calls that Aubry blurted out “I love you”!

Jeremy knew of Aubry’s obsession with the holidays, especially Christmas. He took her to Callaway Gardens before Thanksgiving for a trolley ride through the Christmas lights. He wanted to have a picture taken of the two of them, but every spot he suggested Aubry said NO! Finally, they came upon the Nativity scene, which Aubry thought was a more appropriate place for a photo. Jeremy approached a nearby couple, whispered in the woman’s ear, and then proceeded to get down on one knee, pulling a ring box out of his left boot! The woman began taking photos like crazy once she realized what was happening and Aubry said YES! It turned out that the Nativity scene was the perfect background for their engagement.

{Behind the Lens with Peach Blossom Photography} A growing trend is the first anniversary session that takes brides and grooms back to the places that either inspired their wedding or the places where their wedding was held. It is a great way to bring back memories of the wedding and all the planning that went into it. Aubry and Jeremy asked me to do their one year anniversary session at Gregg’s Peach Farm in Concord, Georgia. Gregg’s Farm is a few miles from their home and is a place they frequent in the summer when peaches are in season. It was the major inspiration for their peach themed wedding at Dunaway Garden’s last June. Aubry’s colors were peach and blue with pops of green. Aubry wore her blue dress from her rehearsal dinner! As a wedding favor, the Storms had peaches for their friends and family to take home. We used the same buckets as props that held the peaches they gifted last year. At their wedding, they also had sweet tea (the preferred drink in the South), so we wanted to include it somehow into the session. We decided to create a peach stand in the middle of the peach farm that sold peaches, sweet tea, and peach ice cream. I brought along my mason jar mugs, glass pitcher, and straws to help create a fun little stand. Gregg’s Farm is known for its yummy homemade peach ice cream, so we had to include it too! It was a warm summer day but so much fun! The first anniversary gift tradition is paper. The Storms asked me to turn the session into a book as a gift for each other to share!
