Melissa Fe Chapman Photography sent over this gorgeous rustic styled shoot photographed at Owl Creek Farms in Temecula, California. Here’s what Melissa had to say about the shoot:

The inspiration behind this Romantic Rustic Farm styled shoot was to pull in non-traditional wedding décor, like the unique floral bouquet, the minimalist rustic ceremony site, the vintage truck with farm style decor and fun bar set up and lounge area under the 100 year old oak tree.

The “untraditional” décor made for incorporating these aspects into the shoot much more forward thinking. We wanted to appeal to the couple that were not afraid to take the risk and merge unconventional meets traditional to produce a one of a kind stunning outcome. From the vintage truck that brought in the rustic feel to the fruits and vegetables that filled the bouquet and floral arrangements everything about this shoot was by far unlike any other wedding.

What makes this shoot so unique is the “untraditional” aspects throughout that really appeals to a vast audience; the rustic vintage lovers, the outside the box thinkers, the free spirits and those who want a day so unique that it cannot be recreated. Keeping the day personal is what this shoot was all about! Every detail was so carefully thought out and helped enhanced the romantic feel of the day with the love between our two lovers, Natosha and Zach.

Nothing describes rustic more than Owl Creek Farms. This venue is located in Temecula Valley and has 2 beautiful barns and a 100 year old oak tree that was the perfect backdrop for the lounge and bar area for this Rustic Farm Wedding. This hidden gem is a working 40 acre farm with rolling Pomegranate Groves, Lavender & Blackberry fields waiting to be picked and harvested for wine, jams and soaps. From the amazing staff to their glorious bridal suite to their beautifully landscaped property, there is always something new to discover.
