One of the most unique parts of the minimal modern wedding inspiration shoot we produced involved Honey and Hive creations. We created of a scene involving our couple making a pie crust together rather than having a traditional sand ceremony, or candle lighting. We love those traditions. But we wanted to create a new tradition that fit the unique creativity and theme of our ideal couple and our shoot. We wanted to present them doing something unique to their modern minimal wedding in a bakery, but also working together to accomplish a complicated task- their first as husband and wife.
So when Amanda found Honey and Hive Creations, it was the perfect addition. Rachel, owner of Honey and Hive shares our ideals of being united through good food, beautiful histories of love, and elegant and simple presentation. On her website, she shares these words, “Honey & Hive Creations is dedicated to blending the arts of cooking and storytelling. Our passion is people (and making the perfect pie.) We love to cook, we value our histories, we’re always looking for an excuse to host, and we share recipes.” This is what the South is about, right? This is one of the things we wanted to highlight in our shoot, and it was the one idea that we kept coming back to over and over as we mulled our options in the planning phase.
We had our models, Camellia and Charlie, unwrap the book and use it in their scene. I love the kraft and jute wrapping and the mixing spoon. It’s so natural and simple.
I really loved the beautiful sentiment Rachel included on the back of the cook book.
I love most the community aspect of this cookbook. All your friends contribute a recipe, and Rachel takes over from there, designing and planning and the final product is stunning. When we marry, we take on the responsibility of nurturing love, and passing that love on through the generations. And this cookbook is a true heirloom, a perfect vehicle for owning that responsibility of nurturing love and relationships.
Rachel, I can’t thank you enough for graciously bringing Honey and Hive Creations to this shoot. You added value and meaning to it, and I’m so thankful Amanda searched you out and made you part of this work.
