Inspired by the special moment of celebrating a wedding, several Denver-based designers came together to create a beautiful, intimate photo shoot. Through adding lush flowers paired with delicious food and a warm table setting, this gathering highlights the rich emotions of a joyful celebration.
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. The stationary suite was designed by Sally Balt of la Happy in pencil on off-white cotton Crane paper with hand-deckled edges to give the paper a delicate, soft feel. The calligraphy was crafted in a modern, organic style.
To incorporate the celebration into the flowers, Bare Root Flora paired a lush variety of blooms including antique hydrangea, soft Sahara, Geraldine, and Mother of Pearl roses. Scattered throughout the arrangements were all sorts of lush edibles—artichokes, kale, pomegranates, persimmon, and lavender.
The bouquet was designed to evoke the kitchen-centric feel of the photo shoot, overflowing with artichokes, kale, and pomegranates accompanied by lush roses, ranunculus, antique hydrangea, Peruvian apple, black privet and other foliage.
French Apple Tarts wrapped in parchment paper served as a favor for guests to take home.
“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.” – Robyn Rissman, Bare Root Flora.
