There's nothing like gathering with your nearest and dearest over a delicious meal. I love the mission of The Kitchen – whose Denver restaurant served as the venue for this shoot; ‘creating community through food'. Along with a delicious feast the team of A Vintage Affair, Bare Root Flora and Sarah Box Photography also crafted a perfectly inviting tablescape.
“An integral part of a wedding celebration is the gathering of loved ones around a table to share food and drink. We were inspired by the belief in the power of good food and good drink to connect people as family, friends, and a community - and what more could one ask for in the celebration of a new marriage? In this intimate shoot, we wanted to highlight this idea. We called it the gathered table - a gathering of beautiful things and beloved people.
One of Denver's most celebrated restaurants, The Kitchen, served as the perfect venue for this gathering. One of The Kitchen's missions is to create community through food--the name of the restaurant was chosen for its desire to act much like the kitchen in one's home, a center of conversation and connection. We extended the feelings and warmth of the home kitchen to all areas of this wedding and brought in elements of cooking and beautiful edibles to serve as the backdrop for the celebration. To incorporate the feast right into the flowers, Bare Root Flora paired a gorgeous variety of blooms, including antique hydrangea and lush Sahara, Geraldine and Mother of Pearl roses, with all sorts of lush edibles, including artichokes, kale, pomegranates, persimmon, and lavender in a white porcelain vase. Accents of black privet, peruvian apple, and kiwi vine gave the centerpiece lush, yummy texture. Bud vases of rosemary and lavender and loose persimmon branches and pomegranates gave the entire table a harvest feel.
At its heart, a wedding really is a celebration of abundance - of love, family, food and memories. We hope this shoot will inspire couples as they gather around their own tables to create truly memorable and fabulous feasts.”
