Rustic Farm-to-Table Inspiration
This rustic styled shoot brings a whole new meaning to the farm-to-table concept, and I'm not just talking about the menu. From the table arrangements to the escort cards, fresh fruit of all kinds play a major role in the decor. Who knew an artichoke could look so classy mixed into a floral bouquet?

A note from the photographer:
“The rich farmland presents such a
vivid array of colors and inspiration for brides in the Northwest. All captured
on fine-art film, this shoot was designed around the farm-to-table concept
bringing in lush produce, seasonal greens and vendors who highlight the best of
what the local farms have to offer.
No event is complete without first
sending the invitations, and the hand-calligraphy of Katie Michelle really
captured our fancy. Nestled in amongst the peach trees, we festooned the table
with an abundance of peonies, poppies and eucalyptus by the beautiful handiwork
of Form and Flora. Square plates brought the perfect touch of modernity
complimented by personalized linen napkins and green stemware.
Escort cards were pinned to fresh
fruit and doubled as edibles for the guests. Because outdoor events can vary in
temperature, we opted for local pies as the star of our dessert bar, with homemade
jams as a take-home favor. Mini paper books in customizable color waves
made darling bridal party gifts and doodle books for the little ones. Our bride
strolled through the trees on the arm of her husband wearing the enviable gowns
from Stephanie D Couture. When it was all said and done, I think the thing we
loved the most was richness of it all - so much sumptuous colors and textures to
soak in. It truly was farm to table.”
