A Gathered Wedding Table

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 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. photo_3The 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.

Scattered throughout the arrangements were all sorts of lush edibles—artichokes, kale, pomegranates, persimmon, and lavender.

“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.
